Statement from Gary L. Clayton, Chief Executive Officer of the Illinois Association of REALTORS®:
“Illinois REALTORS® have long seen firsthand how high property taxes erect barriers to homeownership. We applaud Gov. Bruce Rauner’s intent to make property tax relief a priority.
Gov. Rauner was on point when he stated property taxes are ‘crushing’ middle class families.
That, and an emphasis on reducing the number of units of government in Illinois, sends an encouraging signal that he intends to do what he can to make Illinois better for property owners, whether they already call the Land of Lincoln home or are considering moving to the state.”
