Permits an organization that files a petition for temporary possession of property to also request a court order waiving or extinguishing any county property tax lien or unpaid property taxes existing on the property if the property has been vacant for at least 3 years. Requires the petitioner to provide notice of any order waiving or extinguishing the tax lien or unpaid property taxes to the office of the county collector or county treasurer of the county in which the property is located. Requires any petition to waive or extinguish a tax lien or unpaid property taxes to be filed by the petitioner within 90 days of commencing the action, unless such time is extended by the court for good cause. Provides that a hearing on the organization's petition need not occur immediately, but must be held prior to the closure of the case and that the order waiving or extinguishing the tax lien shall only exist for the benefit of the organization that files a petition, and shall not inure to, pass to, or benefit any other party in interest of the property.
