PROP TX-SR CIT EXEMPT-ILLNESS
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Property Tax Code. Provides that if an applicant for
the Senior Citizens Assessment Freeze Homestead Exemption fails to
file the application in a timely manner and the failure to file was
due to a mental or physical condition sufficiently severe so as to
render the applicant incapable of filing the application in a timely
manner, the Chief County Assessment Officer may extend the filing
deadline for a period of 30 days after the applicant regains the
capability to file the application, but in no case may the filing
deadline be extended beyond 3 months of the original filing deadline.
Requires the applicant to provide the Chief County Assessment Officer
with a signed statement from the applicant's physician stating the
nature and extent of the condition, that, in the physician's opinion,
the condition was so severe that it rendered the applicant incapable
of filing the application in a timely manner, and the date on which
the applicant regained the capability to file the application.
SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Provides that the provisions concerning the extension of filing
deadlines for applicants who were ill shall apply only in counties
having fewer than 3,000,000 inhabitants.
