House Committee Amendment No. 2
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the engrossed bill with changes. Provides that the reduction in the equalized assessed value of the improvements is calculated as follows: (1) an amount equal to 90% of the difference between the base year equalized assessed value of the improvements and the assessed value of the improvements in the current taxable year for the first 7 years after the improvements are placed in service; (2) an amount equal to 65% of the difference between the base year equalized assessed value of the improvements and the assessed value of the improvements in the current taxable year for the eighth taxable year after the improvements are placed in service; and (3) an amount equal to 35% of the difference between the base year equalized assessed value of the improvements and the assessed value of the improvements in the current taxable year for the ninth taxable year after the improvements are placed in service. Provides that the bill applies in all counties (instead of counties with 3,000,000 or more inhabitants).

Provides that the benefit does not apply if the property was transferred by a tax sale. Provides that, if there is a transfer of ownership during the period of the assessment freeze, then the benefit shall not apply to that property on or after the date of that transfer unless (i) the property is conveyed by an owner who does not occupy the improvements as a primary residence to an owner who will occupy the improvements as a primary residence and (ii) all requirements of this Section continue to be met.
