Hospital Property Tax Exemption: From Provena to Oswald and Beyond
Two years after the Illinois Supreme Court’s decision in Provena Covenant Medical Center, the Illinois General Assembly in 2012 passed landmark legislation addressing charitable property tax exemption for hospitals.  Following six years of litigation, the Illinois Supreme Court has now upheld that legislation in Oswald v. Hamer, 2018 IL 122203.  This session will briefly review the dispute over hospital property tax exemption, the questions left unanswered by Provena, what the court held in Oswald, and the question that still remains unresolved.
