The 2023 property tax levy was presented to the Finance & Administration Commitee at their meeting on September 11, 2023, at which time, they voted unanimously to recommend the statutorily permissible tax levy, a 6.65% increase for 2023, to the President and Board of Trustees. In addition, the Committee recommended that the levy increase be set aside specifically for public safety building needs.
On November 2, 2023, a Public Hearing will be held and the 2023 tax levy will be considered for first reading at the Village Board Meeting. The second/final reading will be held on November 16, 2023. The 6.65% statutorily permissible increase equates on average to $29.31 for a $300,000 home. This varies for each property depending on the value assigned by the assessor's office.
Property Tax Allocation
The Village of Lombard receives less than 8% of the total tax bill, meaning that less than $0.08 of every dollar paid in property taxes will go to the Village to help fund core services, including public safety provided by Police and Fire Departments; road, sewer, and water maintenance from Public Works; building and code enforcement from Community Development, and responsible long-term financial planning from the Finance Department.
