(35 ILCS 200/10-168)
Valuation of registered land or land encumbered by
conservation rights; application process.
(a) The person liable for taxes on land eligible for assessment under
Section 10-166 must file a verified application requesting the
registered land or conservation rights valuation with the chief county
assessment officer by January 31 of the first year that the valuation is
desired. If the application is not filed by January 31, the taxpayer waives
the right to claim that valuation for that year. The application
shall be in the form prescribed by the Department and shall contain information
as may reasonably be required to determine whether the applicant meets the
requirements of Section 10-166. If the application shows the applicant is
entitled to the valuation, the chief county assessment officer shall approve
it and maintain that valuation until notified as provided in Section 10-169.
Otherwise, the application shall be rejected. The application shall be
accompanied by the certification provided for in Section 10-167, if required.
(b) When the application has been filed with and approved by the chief
county assessment officer, he or she shall determine the valuation of the land
as otherwise permitted by law and as required under Section 10-166, and shall
keep a record of that valuation.
