If any property is twice assessed for the same 9 year, or assessed before it becomes taxable, and the 10 erroneously assessed taxes have been paid either at sale or 11 otherwise, or have been overpaid by the same claimant or by 12 different claimants, the County Collector, upon being 13 satisfied of the facts in the case, shall refund the taxes to 14 the proper claimant. If
Whenthe County Collector is unable 15 to determine the proper claimant, the circuit court, on 16 petition of the person paying the taxes, or his or her agent, 17 and being satisfied of the facts in the case, shall direct 18 the county collector to refund the taxes and deduct the 19 amount thereof, pro rata, from the moneys due to taxing 20 bodies which received the taxes erroneously paid, or their 21 legal successors. Pleadings in connection with the petition 22 provided for in this Section shall conform to that -2- LRB9202824SMdvam01 1 prescribed in the Civil Practice Law. Appeals may be taken 2 from the judgment of the circuit court, either by the county 3 collector or by the petitioner, as in other civil cases. A 4 claim for refund shall not be allowed unless a petition is 5 filed within 5 years from the date the right to a refund 6 arose. If a certificate of error results in the allowance of 7 a homestead exemption not previously allowed, the county 8 collector shall pay the taxpayer interest on the amount of 9 taxes paid that are attributable to the amount of the 10 additional allowance, at the rate of 6% per year. To cover 11 the cost of interest, the county collector shall 12 proportionately reduce the distribution of taxes collected 13 for each taxing district in which the property is situated. 14 (Source: P.A. 83-121; 85-468; 88-455.)".
