How is my tax bill calculated?

The tax bill takes into account the any new assessment and the new tax rate. The total tax is calculated by multiplying the Total Tax Rate by the Taxable Assessed Value (divided by 100). This amount equals the total taxes due on the parcel for the year. The Total Tax Rate represents the taxes paid to each taxing body per $100.00 of Taxable Assessed Value. The Taxable Assessed Value represents the Equalized Assessment less the Exemptions that a taxpayer is entitled to.

Featured in Apply for Unemployment Insurance, State of Illinois

Overpayments generally occur due to under-reporting of wages when certifying or a deny determination for an issue that retroactively disqualifies benefits already received.  Contact Claimant Services at 800-244-5631 for questions and info on appeal rights. 

If IDES has determined that you have been improperly paid unemployment insurance benefits, the amount of the overpayment will appear on the Notice of Reconsidered Determination and Recoupment Decision. By law, you must repay the entire amount you owe [Section 900 of the Illinois Unemployment Insurance Act (820 ILCS 405/900)]. If you are unable to pay the entire amount in one lump sum, you may enter into a monthly installment plan.
