Input on hospital exemptions:

The Civic Federation has a proposal for a legal standard that could be set for Illinois nonprofit hospitals to qualify for property tax exemptions. The group on Monday released a statement supporting a threshold equal to the estimated tax bill for the hospital property. A nonprofit hospital would be required to provide charitable care and other community benefits equal to or greater than the property taxes the hospital would have paid. Last year, the Illinois Department of Revenue denied tax exemptions to three hospitals, citing an Illinois Supreme Court ruling. Gov. Pat Quinn later ordered state officials not to issue any new rulings, saying he hoped to work with the hospital industry to find a legislative compromise. Quinn set March 1 as a deadline for recommendations.
