Illinois Supreme Court leaves hospital property tax exemptions in place

From Becker’s:

The Illinois Supreme Court has vacated an appellate court decision issued last year that said a state law that allows nonprofit hospitals to avoid paying property taxes is unconstitutional, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Under a 2012 law, a nonprofit hospital in Illinois doesn’t have to pay property taxes if it can show its charitable services are equal to or exceed its property tax liability. Last January, the Illinois 4th District Appellate Court ruled the 2012 law is unconstitutional. The ruling was issued in a case brought by Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana, Ill., against the city of Urbana and other local taxing districts.
