Special Assessment for IL Solar Energy Systems

Solar systems should not increase your property taxes according to
Property Tax Code § 35 ILCS 200/10-5 et seq.  Illinois offers a special assessment for solar energy systems, but you may have to register with a chief county assessment officer or contact your local assessor.  Solar energy equipment is valued at no more than a conventional energy system.

Eligible equipment includes both active and passive solar-energy systems.

Check your property tax bill, and if you feel your assessment increased due to your solar installation, contact your local assessor office who is listed on your tax bill.

Your assessor may request a completed State of Illinois PTAX-330 property tax form.
