Home Business Starting Out Incentives
The Cook County Assessor's office administers several real estate tax incentive programs -- among them, the 6(b) and 7(b) -- to stimulate the development and/or expansion of industrial, retail and office facilities. For a business to be eligible for any of these incentives, the municipality -- in this case, the Village of Glenview -- must expressly state that it supports and consents to the filing of the application and that it finds the incentive necessary for development to occur on the subject property. Economic Development staff coordinates the Village's review of these applications.
For more information, businesses can visit the Cook County Assessor's website or contact its Incentives Department at(312) 603-7929.
