   35 ILCS 200/21-136 new                                                      

        Amends the Property Tax Code.  Provides that in addition  to  any      
   other  notice  required  to  be sent, not less than 10 days before the      
   date of application for judgment and sale  of  delinquent  properties,      
   the  county  collector  shall  mail, by certified mail, return receipt      
   requested, a notice of the forthcoming application  for  judgment  and      
   sale  to  the taxpayer and, if applicable, to a party specified by the      
   taxpayer.  The notice shall include the intended dates of  application      
   for  judgment  and  sale  and  of  commencement  of  the  sale,  and a      
   description of the properties.  In addition, the notice shall  include      
   a statement that counselors are available to help homeowners develop a      
   repayment  plan  for the delinquent taxes.  The notice must inform the      
   taxpayer that it may be possible to  repay  the  delinquent  taxes  in      
   installments  upon  approval  of  the  county collector.  Requires the      
   county to provide counselors to advise delinquent taxpayers concerning      
   these provisions.  If the county collector approves a repayment  plan,      
   then no collection action concerning the delinquent taxes may be taken      
   until  the taxpayer is at least 90 days delinquent in making a payment      
   under the repayment plan.  Provides that before the  court  enters  an      
   order  for  judgment  and sale, the court must inquire as to whether a      
   repayment plan has been entered into and, if  no  repayment  plan  has      
   been  entered  into,  the court may order the collector to negotiate a      
   repayment plan with the  taxpayer  rather  than  enter  an  order  for      
   judgment and sale.
