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.

    (35 ILCS 200/15-25)
    Sec. 15-25. Removal of exemptions. If the Department determines that any property has been unlawfully exempted from taxation, or is no longer entitled to exemption, the Department shall, before January 1 of any year, direct the chief county assessment officer to assess the property and return it to the assessment rolls for the next assessment year. The Department shall give notice of its decision to the owner of the property by certified mail. The decision shall be subject to review and hearing under Section 8-35, upon application by the owner filed within 60 days after the notice of decision is mailed. However, the extension of taxes on the assessment shall not be delayed by any proceedings under this Section. If the property is determined to be exempt, any taxes extended upon the assessment shall be abated or, if already paid, be refunded.
