Property taxes make up the majority of D39’s funding. The State of Illinois’ property tax cap (instituted in 1994) means that without voter approval, school boards in IL can only raise annual property taxes by the rate of inflation or 5%, whichever is less, plus taxes on the value of any new property growth. D39 voters passed a referendum for property tax increase in 2011.
