Illinois Compiled Statutes

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.

    Sec. 10-300. Veterans organization assessment freeze.
    (a) For the taxable year 2000 and thereafter, the assessed value of real property owned and used by a veterans organization chartered under federal law, on which is located the principal building for the post, camp, or chapter, and, for taxable years 2004 and thereafter, the assessed value of real property owned by such an organization and used by the organization's members and guests for parking at the principal building for the post, camp, or chapter, must be frozen by the chief county assessment officer at (i) 15% of the 1999 assessed value of the property for property that qualifies for the assessment freeze in taxable year 2000 or (ii) 15% of the assessed value of the property for the taxable year that the property first qualifies for the assessment freeze after taxable year 2000. If, in any year, improvements or additions are made to the property that would increase the assessed value of the property were it not for this Section, then 15% of the assessed value of such improvements shall be added to the assessment of the property for that year and all subsequent years the property is eligible for the freeze.
    (b) The veterans organization must annually submit an application to the chief county assessment officer on or before (i) January 31 of the assessment year in counties with a population of 3,000,000 or more and (ii) December 31 of the assessment year in all other counties. The initial application must contain the information required by the Department of Revenue, including (i) a copy of the organization's congressional charter, (ii) the location or description of the property on which is located the principal building for the post, camp, or chapter, (iii) a written instrument evidencing that the organization is the record owner or has a legal or equitable interest in the property, (iv) an affidavit that the organization is liable for paying the real property taxes on the property, and (v) the signature of the organization's chief presiding officer. Subsequent applications shall include any changes in the initial application and shall be signed by the organization's chief presiding officer. All applications shall be notarized.
    (c) This Section shall not apply to parcels exempt under Section 15-145.
