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.

65 ILCS 5/8-3-15

    (65 ILCS 5/8-3-15) (from Ch. 24, par. 8-3-15)
    Sec. 8-3-15. The corporate authorities of each municipality shall have all powers necessary to enforce the collection of any tax imposed and collected by such municipality, whether such tax was imposed pursuant to its home rule powers or statutory authorization, including but not limited to subpoena power and the power to create and enforce liens. No such lien shall affect the rights of bona fide purchasers, mortgagees, judgment creditors or other lienholders who acquire their interests in such property prior to the time a notice of such lien is placed on record in the office of the recorder or the registrar of titles of the county in which the property is located. However, nothing in this Section shall permit a municipality to place a lien upon property not located or found within its corporate boundaries. A municipality creating a lien may provide that the procedures for its notice and enforcement shall be the same as that provided in the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act, as that Act existed prior to the adoption of the State Tax Lien Registration Act, for State tax liens, and any recorder or registrar of titles with whom a notice of such lien is filed shall treat such lien as a State tax lien for recording purposes.
