ALTON — State Rep. Monica Bristow, D-Alton, has been appointed to the newly created Property Tax Relief Task Force which will address property taxes in Illinois.

“This spring I worked on legislation to make cost-saving exemptions more accessible for local seniors and to provide tax credits to local businesses that invest in our communities,” Bristow said. “In order to grow our local economies and ensure businesses invest in Illinois jobs, we must address the systemic property tax crisis facing our state and our homeowners.”

Bristow joined the Illinois General Assembly in December 2017. She voted for Senate Bill 1932 which created the Illinois Property Tax Relief Task Force and, this spring, introduced legislation to make the Senior Citizens Assessment Freeze Homestead Exemption more accessible to local residents, as well as to provide tax credits to local business that invest in Illinois jobs. She also voted for Senate Bill 39 which created the Property Tax Relief Fund.

“Our families and local businesses cannot wait any longer; they need real comprehensive solutions that help address the problem of growing property taxes,” Bristow said.
