    AN ACT concerning revenue.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Property Tax Code is amended by changing
Section 21-150 as follows:
    (35 ILCS 200/21-150)
    Sec. 21-150. Time of applying for judgment. Except as
otherwise provided in this Section or by ordinance or
resolution enacted under subsection (c) of Section 21-40, all
applications for judgment and order of sale for taxes and
special assessments on delinquent properties shall be made
within 90 days after the second installment due date during the
month of October. In those counties which have adopted an
ordinance under Section 21-40, the application for judgment and
order of sale for delinquent taxes shall be made in December.
In the 10 years next following the completion of a general
reassessment of property in any county with 3,000,000 or more
inhabitants, made under an order of the Department,
applications for judgment and order of sale shall be made as
soon as may be and on the day specified in the advertisement
required by Section 21-110 and 21-115. If for any cause the
court is not held on the day specified, the cause shall stand
continued, and it shall be unnecessary to re-advertise the list
or notice.
    Within 30 days after the day specified for the application
for judgment the court shall hear and determine the matter. If
judgment is rendered, the sale shall begin on the date within 5
business days specified in the notice as provided in Section
21-115. If the collector is prevented from advertising and
obtaining judgment within 90 days after the second installment
due date during the month of October, the collector may obtain
judgment at any time thereafter; but if the failure arises by
the county collector's not complying with any of the
requirements of this Code, he or she shall be held on his or
her official bond for the full amount of all taxes and special
assessments charged against him or her. Any failure on the part
of the county collector shall not be allowed as a valid
objection to the collection of any tax or assessment, or to
entry of a judgment against any delinquent properties included
in the application of the county collector.
