As you know, Illinois is moving toward the electronic submission of the PTAX 203 for recording real estate deeds. The physical form will continue to be required when filing your deeds in the office of the Logan County Clerk and Recorder– whether completing it online through the MyDec site of the State of Illinois at: http://www.revenue.state.il.us/LocalGovernment/PropertyTax/MyDec/, or by printing the fill-in-the- blank form on the Department of Revenue site at: http://tax.illinois.gov/LocalGovernment/PropertyTax/PTAX-203.pdf. Either process, the recorder must receive the PTAX 203 document along with the deed. The state is attempting to move counties forward to electronic formats in order to assist them in their county sales ratio studies.
The office of the Logan County Clerk and Recorder will be moving to the MyDec system on June 15. We have many out of county users presently participating in the system, as several counties have already begun utilizing MyDec. If you have any specific questions for the system itself, please contact Rhonda McCombs at DOR by calling (217)785-8667 or email Rhonda.email@example.com or staff at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is also a help line for the new system (844)445-1114. Our office staff is available to assist you as well.
