Property Tax Levy


In general, the property tax you pay is related to the value of the property owned (whether it's residential or commercial). If you look at your property tax bill, you will see you pay different amounts to different taxing districts (including local school districts, the Village, Park District, and more). In 2012, just above 15% of most property taxes bills went to the Village of Kenilworth.

The Village does not determine the tax for each property, instead, it sets a total property tax levy. The Village's 2012 levy is $3,572,722. Cook County then determines how much each property must be taxed in order to meet that levy. View a 3-year history (PDF) of the Village's tax rate compared to other taxing districts.

Sales Tax


The sales tax you pay at the register in the Village is 8% - and it is actually made up of 3 separate taxes. These include:
  • A State Retail Tax of 6.25% (of which 1% is distributed to the Village of Kenilworth).
  • A Cook County Tax of 1.75%
