Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Property Tax Code. In a Section concerning the Senior Citizens Homestead Exemption, provides that in all counties (now, in counties with less than 3,000,000 inhabitants), the county board may by resolution provide that if a person has been granted a senior citizens homestead exemption, the person qualifying need not reapply for the exemption. Provides that the county recorder of deeds shall alert the assessor whenever the transfer of ownership of any property receiving a Senior Citizens Homestead Exemption has occurred. Provides that, if such a transfer occurs, the assessor shall remove the exemption and provide the new property owner with information concerning reapplication. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Provides that the county assessor shall exchange information with the county recorder of deeds or the county clerk (in the introduced bill, the county recorder of deeds only) for the purpose of alerting the assessor whenever the transfer of ownership of any property receiving a Senior Citizens Homestead Exemption has occurred. Provides that changes in the introduced bill concerning reapplication for the Senior Citizens Homestead Exemption apply for taxable year 2019 and thereafter.
