County tax maps - Supervisor of assessments.
provided in Section 5-1108 of the Counties Code, each supervisor of assessments
shall prepare and maintain, in accordance with rules and procedures prescribed
by the Department, tax maps and up-to-date lists of property owners' names and
addresses and property record cards for all of the property in the county, and
shall procure at regular intervals from the records maintained by the county
recorder information relating to transfers of property. The supervisor of
assessments shall not, however, duplicate the work of any full-time township
assessor or multi-township assessor who maintains up-to-date and complete tax
maps, ownership lists and property record cards in accordance with rules and
procedures prescribed by the Department. This shall not preclude
the maintenance of duplicate records in the supervisor of assessments' office.
This Section shall not prohibit the preparation and setting up of a property
record system (including appraisals) and property record cards as provided for
in other Acts, but such system and records shall not be considered to be
assessments nor limit the powers and duties of the assessors as provided by
this Code. Systems and records or copies of them set up under other Acts may be
maintained by the supervisor of assessments in his or her office. In preparing
the original tax maps, lists and property record cards, he or she shall consult
with the Department and the Department shall furnish to the officer such
supplies and equipment as may, in its judgment, be necessary to set up the
original set of maps, lists and records required by this Section.
