Mr. Koob,

Please accept this email as a request for an additional extension of time, through and including, Tuesday, April 10, 2018, to respond to your Freedom of Information request.

We appreciate your patience as we work to respond to your request.

Mr. Koob,

This email is being sent in response to your request dated March 20, 2018, for "Any documents regarding the award of tax abatements, exemptions, subsidies, or reductions on their real or personal property to the Trump Organization and Trump Organization subsidiaries."
Please note that Illinois does not have a personal property tax. As a result, the Department maintains no records responsive to your request for records pertaining to "tax abatements, exemptions, subsidies, or reductions" on personal property.

Property tax abatements and reductions are determined by the counties. We suggest you contact the County Assessor's Office of the county in which the properties are located.

Property tax exemptions are only granted to properties of religious, charitable, and educational organizations, as well as units of federal, state and local governments. As a result, the Department is unlikely to have records pertaining to your request for property tax exemption for "the Trump Organization and Trump Organization subsidiaries." In order to verify whether any property tax exemptions for these entities exist, the Department would require the property address(es), PIN numbers, and or other identifying information. This information is also available at the county level. We suggest you contact the County Assessor's Office of the county in which the properties are located.

To the extent you consider this response to be a denial of your FOIA request, you have the right to submit a request for review by the Public Access Counselor (the "PAC") in the Office of the Illinois Attorney General to:

Public Access Counselor

Office of the Attorney General

500 S. 2nd St.

Springfield, IL 62706

Fax: 217-782-1396

E-mail: publicaccess@atg.state.il.us<mailto:publicaccess@atg.state.il.us>

If you choose to submit a request for review to the PAC, you must do so within 60 days after the date of this letter. Your request for review must be in writing, signed by you, and include a copy of your FOIA request and this response (5 ILCS 140/9.5(a)). You also have the right to seek judicial review of this response (See 5 ILCS 140/11(a),(b)).

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you,
