The State of Illinois has instituted a change to all property owners claiming Property Tax on their 2009 Illinois Tax Return. In order for your return to be accepted by the State of Illinois, those who are claiming a property tax credit must provide, on their return, their Property Index Number (PIN), sometimes called “parcel number”.
This number can be found on the taxpayer’s property tax bill or tax assessment notice. Taxpayers who pay their property taxes through a mortgage may need to contact their lender for a copy of their bill, or obtain the number from their county assessor’s office. If you have trouble locating your PIN, feel free to contact Lucid Realty and we would be glad to help you determine the correct number.
