Where exactly do those dollars go?

Everyone who owns property in Tinley Park pays taxes on it, but if you’ve ever wondered how those dollars distributed, click here for a by-township breakdown.

On average, 12% of your property tax bill goes to the Village of Tinley Park, with 9% going to your county and township, 4% to your park district, and 3% to the Tinley Park Public Library. Most of your tax bill – 72% on average – goes toward education, which includes local elementary and high schools, as well as community colleges.

While these percentages might fluctuate by a few points depending on which township you call home and which of the many school and park districts you’re served by, they are overall fairly consistent.

For that 12%, which is on par and in some cases less than what those in our neighboring towns pay, Tinley Park residents get a great community to call home. Tinley Park is a vibrant town with a thriving music scene, fun yearlong events, top-notch Village services, a dedicated staff of employees and hundreds of unique, high-profile businesses, all funded through diverse revenue streams. And the future looks even brighter thanks to dozens of new developments and a refocused branding campaign that will bring outside dollars into our community.

No matter what way you slice the pie, Tinley Park is a great place to call home! For more information on property taxes, including a by-township breakdown, visit the Tinley Park Property Taxes page on the Village’s website.
