How do I apply for this exemption?

You must apply for the exemption with the County Assessment Office. You can get an application here (Senior Assessment Freeze Exemption Form) or you can call (309) 937-3570 and one will be mailed to you. After the initial application is approved, you will be mailed a renewal form each subsequent year.
