According to Illinois Statutes (ILCS 200/21-15), if a homeowner qualifies, the real estate due dates can be extended to 30 days after returning from active duty, with no penalty.
The actual statute states: "If a member of a reserve component of the armed forces of the United States who has an ownership interest in property taxed under this Act is called to active duty for deployment outside the continental United States and is on active duty on the due date of any installment of taxes due under this Act, he or she shall not be deemed delinquent in the payment of the installment and no interest shall accrue or be charged as a penalty on the installment until 30 days after that member returns from active duty."
