Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Property Tax Code. Provides that the registration for a tax sale in a county with less than 3,000,000 inhabitants must be accompanied by a deposit in an amount determined by the county collector, but not to exceed $250 in counties with less than 50,000 inhabitants or $500 in all other counties, which shall be applied to the amount due on the properties that the registrant has purchased, and, if the registrant does not participate in the sale, then the deposit is forfeited to the Tax Sale Automation Fund. Effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Further amends the Property Tax Code to provide that, if the registrant cannot participate in a tax sale, then he or she may notify the tax collector, no later than 5 business days prior to the sale, of the name of the substitute person who will participate in the sale in the registrant's place, and an additional deposit is not required for any such substitute person. Provides that, if the registrant does attend the sale and attempts, but fails, to purchase any parcels offered for sale, then the deposit must be refunded to the registrant (instead of being forfeited to the Tax Sale Automation Fund).

Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Property Tax Code. Sets forth procedures for the valuation of property used for wind energy devices. Requires the owner of a wind energy device to prepare and record a plat of the wind energy device. In a Section concerning the alternative general homestead exemption, extends the alternative exemption and sets forth the maximum amount of the exemption for each taxable year. Creates the long-time occupant homestead exemption for those counties that elect to extend the alternative general homestead exemption that caps the increase in assessed value of qualified homestead property at 10% or 7% per year based on the taxpayer's household income. Defines "qualified homestead property" as homestead property of a taxpayer who has owned the property for at least 10 years (or 5 years with certain government assistance) and who has a household income of $100,000 or less. Creates a homestead exemption for disabled veterans. Sets forth the amount of the exemption based on the percentage of service-connected disability of the veteran. Provides that the exemption carries over to the benefit of the veteran's surviving spouse. Creates the Returning Veterans' Homestead Exemption, under which an exemption from the property's value is granted for residential property that is owned and occupied as a residence by a veteran for the tax year in which the veteran returns from active duty in an armed conflict involving the armed forces of the United States. Creates the Disabled Persons Homestead Exemption, which provides for a $2,000 homestead exemption for property that is owned and occupied by certain persons with a disability. Increases the amount of the Senior Homestead Exemption. Increases the amount of the General Homestead Exemption. In the Senior Citizens Assessment Freeze Homestead Exemption: authorizes audits by the chief county assessment officer; provides that, for taxable year 2007 and thereafter, the amount of the exemption is the equalized assessed value of the residence in the taxable year for which application is made minus the base amount (now, the amount of the exemption is based upon the applicant's household income); increases the amount of the maximum income limitation. Authorizes counties and municipalities to abate any percentage of the taxes levied by the county or municipality on each parcel of certain qualified residential property within the corporate limits of the municipality that is owned by the surviving spouse of a fallen police officer or rescue worker. Requires that tax bills must include information that certain taxpayers may be eligible for tax exemptions, abatements, and other assistance programs. Sets forth criteria under which a county board may adopt a resolution to waive an interest penalty for the delinquent payment of taxes with respect to property that qualifies as a brownfield site. Creates the Property Tax Reform and Relief Task Force to conduct a study of the property tax system in Illinois and investigate methods of reducing the reliance on property taxes and alternative methods of funding. Amends the Senior Citizens and Disabled Persons Property Tax Relief and Pharmaceutical Assistance Act to increase the amounts of certain maximum income limitations. Amends other Acts to make conforming changes. Amends the State Mandates Act to require implementation without reimbursement. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Provides that the Returning Veterans' Homestead Exemption is in addition to any other homestead exemption under the exemption Article of the Property Tax Code (instead of in addition to any other homestead exemption under certain Sections of the Property Tax Code). In the alternative general homestead exemption, for the final year of the exemption, increases the maximum amount of the exemption from $19,000 to $20,000.

Governor Amendatory Veto Message
Recommends that the alternative general homestead exemption apply on a permanent basis (now, the bill extends the exemption for 3 years). Recommends that the maximum amount of the alternative general homestead exemption be increased to $40,000. In the Senior Citizensí Homestead Exemption, recommends that Cook County be authorized to provide by resolution that, if a person has been granted the exemption, then the person need not reapply annually for the exemption.
