    SOME COUNTYS ALLOW RESIDENTIAL PROPERTYS TO BE TAX EXEMPT EVEN THOU THE NON-MUNICIPAL OWNER SALES PROPERTY, FINANCES IT’S LAND SALES AND PACTICES THE SELLING OF REALESTE & THE FINANCING THEREOF.

    AS AN ILLINOIS CERTIFIED ASSESSING OFFICER, CIAO & IAAO IT IS HARD FOR ME THE UNDERSTAND HOW A COUNTY HAS TO PAY TAXES ON PROPERTY THAT IS OWNED BY ALL THE PEOPLE OF THE COUNTY – WHO ARE ALREADY PAYING THEIR PROPERTY TAXES. HOW DID THIS CASE GET TO BE DECIDED BY THE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OFFICE?

      AG office did not have anything to do with it. The Department of Revenue deemed it taxable, rightfully so since it was being used by a private farmer for profit. That process had no public purpose, therefore the farmer was obligated to pay the tax but the brain trust in Shelby County paid it for him, as the taxpayers!
