Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Property Tax Code. Creates an accessible housing exemption. Provides that any component of residential property that is specifically designed and built for persons with disabilities in compliance with the accessibility guidelines and standards of the United States Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (the "Access Board"), the construction of which is commenced on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act is exempt from property taxes, if it meets all of the requirements for exemption. Exempts the components of new construction as well as new components installed in existing residential property that meet Access Board standards to the extent of the value added by the components. Provides that the exemption applies only if the owner of the property who applies for the exemption or a member of the applicant's household is disabled. Provides that if a component of residential property is not in compliance with the Access Board's standards but it is constructed to and it does meet the accessibility needs of the disabled person, then that component is eligible for the exemption. Amends the State Mandates Act to require implementation without reimbursement from the State. Effective immediately.
