Five Hospitals Withdraw Tax Exempt Applications

Sat, 07 Apr 2012 07:36:21 CDT
(Springfield)--Five Illinois Hospitals have withdrawn their applications for tax exemptions, leaving up to county governments to assess taxes on the properties. According to the Illinois Department of Revenue, hospitals in Murphysboro, Moline, Urbana, Monmouth and Hillsboro have withdrawn applications in the past week. The move clears county authorities to evaluate the properties and collect taxes.

The development comes as Illinois leaders grapple with a 2010 Illinois Supreme Court ruling. The court found that one hospital wasn't doing enough charity care to qualify for an exemption. That ruling called into question other hospitals' tax exemption.

The revenue department is continuing to review pending applications from other hospitals.
