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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

Role as ex-officio deputy assessors.
In all townships in counties
of 3,000,000 or more, in which township assessors are elected, the township
assessors shall be ex-officio deputy assessors to make the assessments in the
townships wherein they are elected but those ex-officio deputy assessors shall
be under the direction and control of the county assessor in the same manner as
other deputy assessors, subject to the rules and regulations prescribed by the
county assessor and the board of appeals. The compensation and expenses of the
township assessors shall be determined and paid as provided in Sections 2-70,
2-75, 2-80, 4-10, 4-15 and 4-20. If in any township the ex-officio deputy
assessor is not able, within the time allowed by law or set by rules and
regulations prescribed by the county assessor and the board of appeals, to make
the assessment in the township, any additional deputy assessor or deputy
assessors required to make the assessment shall be residents and legal voters
of the township and may be appointed by the county assessor. For failure to
complete the assessment and return the assessment books within the time
prescribed by law or set by the rules and regulations of the county assessor
and board of appeals, any township assessor may be removed from office by the
order of the county assessor. All clerks and deputies shall take and subscribe
an oath of office to honestly and faithfully perform all the duties of their
respective offices under the direction of the county assessor. The county
assessor, the clerks and deputy assessors, may administer oaths authorized by
law to be administered by assessors. The number and compensation of the clerks
and the deputies (other than the ex-officio deputies) shall be determined
annually by the county board and shall be paid from the county treasury.
