(65 ILCS 5/9-2-50) (from Ch. 24, par. 9-2-50)
    Sec. 9-2-50. Within 30 days after the entry of confirmation of the assessment roll in such a proceeding described in Section 9-2-49, the clerk of the court in which the judgment is rendered shall certify the assessment roll and judgment to the officer of the municipality authorized to collect the special assessment or tax. If, however, there has been an appeal taken on any part of the judgment, then the designated clerk shall certify such part of the judgment as is not included in that appeal and this certification shall be filed by the officer receiving it, in his office. With the assessment roll and judgment, the clerk of the specified court shall also issue and deliver a warrant for the collection of the assessment or tax. Upon the delivery of this warrant to the designated collecting officer, the first installment of such assessment or tax shall be immediately due and payable. The second installment of the assessment or tax shall be due and payable on the second day of January next after the date of the first voucher issued on account of work done, if the uncollected portion of the first installment has been returned delinquent to the authorized county officer as provided in this article, but if the same has not been so returned delinquent, then the second installment shall be due and payable one year after that second day of January. The third and subsequent installments shall be due and payable respectively at successive annual periods after the second installment becomes due and payable. The amount awarded to any person for property taken or damaged may be applied, at the option of the owner of that property, as an offset to the amount of benefits assessed in the first and succeeding installments against any property owned by that person and assessed in that proceeding.
