Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

(65 ILCS 5/) Illinois Municipal Code.

65 ILCS 5/11-96-5

    (65 ILCS 5/11-96-5)
    Sec. 11-96-5. Municipal and park district tax.
    (a) If property within a municipality also lies within a park district and the same property is being taxed for park or recreation purposes by both the municipality and the park district, then the corporate authorities of the municipality may adopt an ordinance or resolution to pay all or part of the park district tax for the property according to subsection (b). If the corporate authorities of a municipality adopt a resolution or ordinance under this Section, then the corporate authorities shall certify the action to the county clerk.
    (b) Before the county clerk extends the tax levy of the park district, the corporate authorities of the municipality may order the municipal treasurer to pay a specified amount into a special abatement fund held by the county treasurer. The county clerk shall then abate the park district tax extension on the property within the municipality by the amount in the abatement fund by apportioning the abatement amount for each parcel of property according to the assessed value as equalized by the board of review and Department of Revenue. The county treasurer shall then pay the money in the abatement fund to the park district. If the amount in the abatement fund is more than the amount of the current tax levy extended on the property, then the county treasurer shall return the surplus amount to the municipal treasurer.
    (c) For the purposes of the Property Tax Extension Limitation Law, the amount of the extension abatement shall continue to be included in the park district's aggregate extension base.
    (d) The municipal tax and abatement shall not exceed a period of 10 years.
