Case number 2008-L-000202 has been lingering for over a decade. The case is commonly referred to as the Carle Foundation Case and involves the question of whether – or to what extent – the Carle Foundation Hospital is entitled property tax exemption pursuant to Section 15-86 of the Property Tax Code.

The case originated in Champaign County in the Sixth Judicial Circuit and found its way to the Illinois Appellate Court and Illinois Supreme Court before being sent back to the Circuit Court where an order was entered yesterday. A full blog post will be forthcoming.

You can read more about the 2016 Illinois Appellate Court opinion here and the subsequent 2017 Illinois Supreme Court opinion in this matter here. These blog posts highlight the substantive and procedural issues pending before each of these courts, including the constitutionality of the charitable purposes property tax exemption and its implementation.
