Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Property Tax Code. In the Senior Citizens Homestead
Exemption provisions requiring the chief county assessment officer of
each county with less than 3,000,000 inhabitants to provide a form to
persons allowed an exemption to designate someone to receive a
duplicate of any notice of tax delinquency on the property, deletes
the language excluding counties with 3,000,000 or more inhabitants.
Provides that property tax bills shall include a statement of the
amount of any delinquent tax due on the property. Provides that the
first installment of taxes in counties with 3,000,000 or more
inhabitants must be based on the amount of property taxes actually
owed in the preceding year, taking into consideration any reductions
approved by the board of review, the Property Tax Appeal Board, or a
court by December 31 of the preceding year as a result of appeals or
for any other reason (now, based on 50% of tax bill from preceding
year). Effective January 1, 2002.
SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Removes the amendatory changes concerning giving a duplicate
notice of a tax delinquency to a person designated by the taxpayer in
counties with 3,000,000 or more inhabitants and inserts language to do
the same thing, but provides that the $5 administrative fee for the
duplicate notice shall be paid to the county collector in counties
with 3,000,000 or more inhabitants (in counties with less than
3,000,000 inhabitants, $5 paid to the supervisor of assessments who
then files the executive designation of the person who will receive
the duplicate notice with the county collector).
