Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Property Tax Code. In a Section concerning the Senior Citizens Homestead Exemption, provides that in all counties (now, in counties with less than 3,000,000 inhabitants), the county board may by resolution provide that if a person has been granted a senior citizens homestead exemption, the person qualifying need not reapply for the exemption. Provides that the county recorder of deeds shall alert the assessor whenever the transfer of ownership of any property receiving a Senior Citizens Homestead Exemption has occurred. Provides that, if such a transfer occurs, the assessor shall remove the exemption and provide the new property owner with information concerning reapplication. Effective immediately.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Removes a requirement that the senior citizens homestead exemption shall be cancelled by the assessor when he or she is notified of the transfer. Provides instead that the assessor shall mail a notice to the new owner of the property informing the new owner that the exemption will remain in place through the year of the transfer, after which it will be cancelled.
