Pingree Grove SAFE: Your Tax Bill and the Village

Pingree Grove SAFE

Pingree Grove SAFE

As a part of our continuing effort to provide factual information to enable voters to make an informed decision on the March, 2020 Pingree Grove SAFE Police Protection Referendum, the Village has prepared information showing how to calculate the impact of the program on your household.  That information is available on the Village's Pingree Grove SAFE webpage (available by clicking on the link).  

You can also go directly to the document by clicking here!

The calculations in this document help explain the exact impact of the Pingree Grove SAFE Referendum, calculated based upon your property's actual property tax bill.  This also accounts for any applicable exemptions, such as the homestead exemption or senior citizen exemption.  It also explains the Special Service Areas that exist in the Village, and their impact.  For example, as we discussed earlier this week, the median home value in Pingree Grove (according to the US Census Bureau) is $179,800.  

  • With a homestead (owner-occupied home), the Pingree Grove SAFE Referendum would have a total annual impact of $323, or about $0.89/day.
  • If that same home is eligible for the homestead and senior citizen exemptions, the annual impact would be $293, or about $0.80/day.
  • If that same home is eligible for the homestead and senior citizen exemptions, and is in Special Service Area 4 or 9, the annual impact would be $132, or about $0.36/day.

How do you know which category you fall into?  Check out this week's information, and find out!  If you have any challenges figuring out the impact on your home, drop us a line:  If you include your name and address, we will work with you to provide an explanation.

We plan on continuing to provide information over the coming months, generally on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.  As always, if you have questions, let us know!
