AMENDED POSITION STATEMENTS
2.50 No Penalty for Under Levy
The Illinois Association of School Boards shall support legislation that allows school districts to levy an amount less than the Property Tax Extension Limitation Law (PTELL) formula would allow without penalty in future years. This would require that when a district “under” levies, the district will have the ability to reassess the reduced levy taken in a given year and recover the full entitled levy for a period of 3 years from the effective date of the reduced levy. A district will not be entitled to reassess the reduced levy once the three-year limit has expired.
that the full allowable extension amount be tracked and made accessible in future years.
