House Floor Amendment No. 4
Adds reference to:
35 ILCS 200/15-169

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the engrossed bill with changes. Provides that the term "accessibility improvement" means a home modification listed under the Home Services Program administered by the Department of Human Services, including, but not limited to the installation of ramps and grab-bars, widening door-ways, and other changes to enhance the independence of a disabled or elderly individual (in the engrossed bill, "accessibility improvement" is defined as a modification or addition to residential property that is designed to make the property more accessible to a disabled person, including, but not limited to, the installation of ramps, lifts, or fixtures, or the removal of architectural barriers on the property). Limits the period of time during which accessibility improvements will not increase the assessed valuation of property to 7 years after the improvements are completed. Further amends the Property Tax Code. In a Section concerning the disabled veterans standard homestead exemption, provides that, for taxable years 2015 and thereafter: (i) if the veteran has a service connected disability of 30% or more but less than 50%, the annual exemption is $2,500; (ii) if the veteran has a service connected disability of 50% or more but less than 70%, the annual exemption is $5,000; and (iii) if the veteran has a service connected disability of 70% or more, then the property is exempt from taxation. Effective immediately.
