Shall the limiting rate under the Property Tax Extension Limitation Law for the Northwest Homer Fire Protection District, Will and Cook Counties, Illinois, be increased by an additional amount equal to 0.09% above the limiting rate for fire protection and ambulance purposes for levy year 2014 and be equal to 0.5796% of the equalized assessed value of the taxable property for levy years 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019?

1) The approximate amount of taxes extendable at the most recent extended limiting rate is $2,415,229, and the approximate amount of taxes extendable if the proposition is approved is $2,859,205.

2) For the 2016 levy year the approximate amount of the additional tax extendable against property containing a single family residence and having a fair market value of $100,000 at the time of referendum is estimated to be $30 in Will County and $24.23 in Cook County.

3) Based upon an average annual percentage increase in the market value of such property of -4.253%, the approximate amount of the additional tax extendable against such property for the 2017 levy year is estimated to be $28.72 in Will County and $23.20 in Cook County and for the 2018 levy year is estimated to be $27.50 in Will County and $22.21 in Cook County and for the 2019 levy year is estimated to be $26.33 in Will County and $21.27 in Cook County.

4) If the proposition is approved, the aggregate extension for 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 will be determined by the limiting rate set forth in the proposition, rather than the otherwise applicable limiting rate calculated under the provisions of the Property Tax Extension Limitation Law (commonly known as the Property Tax Cap Law).
