Well, it's not TIF-type money, but the City of Chicago is offering a bit of a giveback on 2008 property taxes. The Property Tax Relief Program "is meant to provide relief between $25 and $200 to City homeowners hit hardest by increases to their 2008 property tax bill for their primary residence.... The amount of tax relief you might receive is based on a combination of income level and the amount of your property tax increase. For example, the lower your income and the higher your property tax increase, the more relief you’ll be eligible for."
