A press release from Peter Roskam’s office:
Roskam wins fight on behalf of Sixth District residents, Illinoisans allowed to deduct prepaid property taxes.
Washington, DC — In a victory for families across Illinois, The U.S. Department of the Treasury has agreed that an advisory issued by the IRS does not address Illinois, and, therefore, taxpayers in Illinois are not bound by the IRS guidance and are able to deduct their prepaid property taxes.
Representative Peter Roskam (IL-06) released this statement following the news:
“Hardworking taxpayers in our state are entitled to the same benefits as those from every other state.
This announcement is a win for the thousands of Sixth District residents who stood in line to prepay their property taxes last year.
As we move forward with an updated new tax code, families in every income bracket will see a tax cut and Illinois residents will see real tax relief.”
