Notwithstanding any provision of the law to the contrary,
the General Assembly hereby authorizes the use of such funds
for the purposes set forth in this Section.
These provisions do not apply to funds classified by the
Comptroller as federal trust funds or State trust funds. The
Audit Expense Fund may receive transfers from those trust funds
only as directed herein, except where prohibited by the terms
of the trust fund agreement. The Auditor General shall notify
the trustees of those funds of the estimated cost of the audit
to be incurred under the Illinois State Auditing Act for the
fund. The trustees of those funds shall direct the State
Comptroller and Treasurer to transfer the estimated amount to
the Audit Expense Fund.
The Auditor General may bill entities that are not subject
to the above transfer provisions, including private entities,
related organizations and entities whose funds are
locally-held, for the cost of audits, studies, and
investigations incurred on their behalf. Any revenues received
under this provision shall be deposited into the Audit Expense
Fund.
In the event that moneys on deposit in any fund are
unavailable, by reason of deficiency or any other reason
preventing their lawful transfer, the State Comptroller shall
order transferred and the State Treasurer shall transfer the
amount deficient or otherwise unavailable from the General
Revenue Fund for deposit into the Audit Expense Fund.
On or before December 1, 1992, and each December 1
thereafter, the Auditor General shall notify the Governor's
Office of Management and Budget (formerly Bureau of the Budget)
of the amount estimated to be necessary to pay for audits,
studies, and investigations in accordance with the Illinois
State Auditing Act during the next succeeding fiscal year for
each State fund for which a transfer or reimbursement is
anticipated.
Beginning with fiscal year 1994 and during each fiscal year
thereafter, the Auditor General may direct the State
Comptroller and Treasurer to transfer moneys from funds
authorized by the General Assembly for that fund. In the event
funds, including federal and State trust funds but excluding
the General Revenue Fund, are transferred, during fiscal year
1994 and during each fiscal year thereafter, in excess of the
amount to pay actual costs attributable to audits, studies, and
investigations as permitted or required by the Illinois State
Auditing Act or specific action of the General Assembly, the
Auditor General shall, on September 30, or as soon thereafter
as is practicable, direct the State Comptroller and Treasurer
to transfer the excess amount back to the fund from which it
was originally transferred.

(30 ILCS 105/13.2) (from Ch. 127, par. 149.2)
Sec. 13.2. Transfers among line item appropriations.
(a) Transfers among line item appropriations from the same
treasury fund for the objects specified in this Section may be
made in the manner provided in this Section when the balance
remaining in one or more such line item appropriations is
insufficient for the purpose for which the appropriation was
made.
(a-1) No transfers may be made from one agency to another
agency, nor may transfers be made from one institution of
higher education to another institution of higher education
except as provided by subsection (a-4).
(a-2) Except as otherwise provided in this Section,
transfers may be made only among the objects of expenditure
enumerated in this Section, except that no funds may be
transferred from any appropriation for personal services, from
any appropriation for State contributions to the State
Employees' Retirement System, from any separate appropriation
for employee retirement contributions paid by the employer, nor
from any appropriation for State contribution for employee
group insurance. During State fiscal year 2005, an agency may
transfer amounts among its appropriations within the same
treasury fund for personal services, employee retirement
contributions paid by employer, and State Contributions to
retirement systems; notwithstanding and in addition to the
transfers authorized in subsection (c) of this Section, the
fiscal year 2005 transfers authorized in this sentence may be
made in an amount not to exceed 2% of the aggregate amount
appropriated to an agency within the same treasury fund. During
State fiscal year 2007, the Departments of Children and Family

within the same treasury fund for personal services, employee
retirement contributions paid by employer, and State
contributions to retirement systems. During State fiscal year
2010, the Department of Transportation may transfer amounts
among their respective appropriations within the same treasury
fund for personal services, employee retirement contributions
paid by employer, and State contributions to retirement
systems. During State fiscal years 2010 and 2014 only, an
agency may transfer amounts among its respective
appropriations within the same treasury fund for personal
services, employee retirement contributions paid by employer,
and State contributions to retirement systems.
Notwithstanding, and in addition to, the transfers authorized
in subsection (c) of this Section, these transfers may be made
in an amount not to exceed 2% of the aggregate amount
appropriated to an agency within the same treasury fund.
(a-2.5) During State fiscal year 2015 only, the State's
Attorneys Appellate Prosecutor may transfer amounts among its
respective appropriations contained in operational line items
within the same treasury fund. Notwithstanding, and in addition
to, the transfers authorized in subsection (c) of this Section,
these transfers may be made in an amount not to exceed 4% of
the aggregate amount appropriated to the State's Attorneys
Appellate Prosecutor within the same treasury fund.
(a-3) Further, if an agency receives a separate
appropriation for employee retirement contributions paid by
the employer, any transfer by that agency into an appropriation
for personal services must be accompanied by a corresponding
transfer into the appropriation for employee retirement
contributions paid by the employer, in an amount sufficient to
meet the employer share of the employee contributions required

Section 5-25. The State Revenue Sharing Act is amended by
changing Section 12 and by adding Section 11.2 as follows:
(30 ILCS 115/11.2 new)
Sec. 11.2. Funding of certain school districts; fiscal year
2019.
(a) On July 1, 2018, or as soon as practical thereafter,
the State Board of Education shall identify to the Department
of Revenue school districts having Personal Property Tax
Replacement Fund receipts totaling 13% or more of their total
revenues in fiscal year 2017.
(b) In fiscal year 2019, any school district identified

16% of the total amount distributed to the school district from
the Personal Property Tax Replacement Fund during fiscal year
2017, provided that the total amount of additional
distributions under this Section shall not exceed $4,300,000.
If the total additional distributions exceed $4,300,000,
such distributions shall be calculated on a pro rata basis,
based on the percentage of each district's total fiscal year
2017 revenues to the total fiscal year 2017 revenues of all
districts qualifying for an additional distribution under this
Section.
(30 ILCS 115/12) (from Ch. 85, par. 616)
Sec. 12. Personal Property Tax Replacement Fund. There is
hereby created the Personal Property Tax Replacement Fund, a
special fund in the State Treasury into which shall be paid all
revenue realized:
(a) all amounts realized from the additional personal
property tax replacement income tax imposed by subsections (c)
and (d) of Section 201 of the Illinois Income Tax Act, except
for those amounts deposited into the Income Tax Refund Fund
pursuant to subsection (c) of Section 901 of the Illinois
Income Tax Act; and
(b) all amounts realized from the additional personal
property replacement invested capital taxes imposed by Section

Tax Act, Section 2a.1 of the Public Utilities Revenue Act, and
Section 3 of the Water Company Invested Capital Tax Act, and
amounts payable to the Department of Revenue under the
Telecommunications Infrastructure Maintenance Fee Act.
As soon as may be after the end of each month, the
Department of Revenue shall certify to the Treasurer and the
Comptroller the amount of all refunds paid out of the General
Revenue Fund through the preceding month on account of
overpayment of liability on taxes paid into the Personal
Property Tax Replacement Fund. Upon receipt of such
certification, the Treasurer and the Comptroller shall
transfer the amount so certified from the Personal Property Tax
Replacement Fund into the General Revenue Fund.
The payments of revenue into the Personal Property Tax
Replacement Fund shall be used exclusively for distribution to
taxing districts, regional offices and officials, and local
officials as provided in this Section and in the School Code,
payment of the ordinary and contingent expenses of the Property
Tax Appeal Board, payment of the expenses of the Department of
Revenue incurred in administering the collection and
distribution of monies paid into the Personal Property Tax
Replacement Fund and transfers due to refunds to taxpayers for
overpayment of liability for taxes paid into the Personal
Property Tax Replacement Fund.
In addition, moneys in the Personal Property Tax
Replacement Fund may be used to pay any of the following: (i)
salary, stipends, and additional compensation as provided by
law for chief election clerks, county clerks, and county
recorders; (ii) costs associated with regional offices of
education and educational service centers; (iii)

Election Code; (iv) expenses of the Illinois Educational Labor
Relations Board; and (v) salary, personal services, and
additional compensation as provided by law for court reporters

As soon as may be after the effective date of this

into the General Revenue Fund prior to that effective date from
the additional tax imposed by Section 2a.1 of the Messages Tax
Act; Section 2a.1 of the Gas Revenue Tax Act; Section 2a.1 of
the Public Utilities Revenue Act; Section 3 of the Water

Department of Revenue under the Telecommunications
Infrastructure Maintenance Fee Act; and the additional
personal property tax replacement income tax imposed by the
Illinois Income Tax Act, as amended by Public Act 81-1st
Special Session-1. Net replacement revenue shall be defined as
the total amount paid into and remaining in the General Revenue
Fund as a result of those Acts minus the amount outstanding and
obligated from the General Revenue Fund in state vouchers or
warrants prior to the effective date of this amendatory Act of
1980 as refunds to taxpayers for overpayment of liability under
those Acts.
All interest earned by monies accumulated in the Personal
Property Tax Replacement Fund shall be deposited in such Fund.
All amounts allocated pursuant to this Section are appropriated
on a continuing basis.
Prior to December 31, 1980, as soon as may be after the end
of each quarter beginning with the quarter ending December 31,
1979, and on and after December 31, 1980, as soon as may be
after January 1, March 1, April 1, May 1, July 1, August 1,
October 1 and December 1 of each year, the Department of
Revenue shall allocate to each taxing district as defined in
Section 1-150 of the Property Tax Code, in accordance with the
provisions of paragraph (2) of this Section the portion of the
funds held in the Personal Property Tax Replacement Fund which
is required to be distributed, as provided in paragraph (1),
for each quarter. Provided, however, under no circumstances
shall any taxing district during each of the first two years of
distribution of the taxes imposed by this amendatory Act of
1979 be entitled to an annual allocation which is less than the
funds such taxing district collected from the 1978 personal
property tax. Provided further that under no circumstances
shall any taxing district during the third year of distribution
of the taxes imposed by this amendatory Act of 1979 receive
less than 60% of the funds such taxing district collected from
the 1978 personal property tax. In the event that the total of
the allocations made as above provided for all taxing
districts, during either of such 3 years, exceeds the amount
available for distribution the allocation of each taxing
district shall be proportionately reduced. Except as provided
in Section 13 of this Act, the Department shall then certify,
pursuant to appropriation, such allocations to the State
Comptroller who shall pay over to the several taxing districts
the respective amounts allocated to them.
Any township which receives an allocation based in whole or
in part upon personal property taxes which it levied pursuant
to Section 6-507 or 6-512 of the Illinois Highway Code and
which was previously required to be paid over to a municipality
shall immediately pay over to that municipality a proportionate
share of the personal property replacement funds which such
township receives.
Any municipality or township, other than a municipality
with a population in excess of 500,000, which receives an
allocation based in whole or in part on personal property taxes
which it levied pursuant to Sections 3-1, 3-4 and 3-6 of the
Illinois Local Library Act and which was previously required to
be paid over to a public library shall immediately pay over to
that library a proportionate share of the personal property tax
replacement funds which such municipality or township
receives; provided that if such a public library has converted
to a library organized under The Illinois Public Library
District Act, regardless of whether such conversion has
occurred on, after or before January 1, 1988, such
proportionate share shall be immediately paid over to the
library district which maintains and operates the library.
However, any library that has converted prior to January 1,
1988, and which hitherto has not received the personal property
tax replacement funds, shall receive such funds commencing on
January 1, 1988.
Any township which receives an allocation based in whole or
in part on personal property taxes which it levied pursuant to
Section 1c of the Public Graveyards Act and which taxes were
previously required to be paid over to or used for such public
cemetery or cemeteries shall immediately pay over to or use for
such public cemetery or cemeteries a proportionate share of the
personal property tax replacement funds which the township
receives.
Any taxing district which receives an allocation based in
whole or in part upon personal property taxes which it levied
for another governmental body or school district in Cook County
in 1976 or for another governmental body or school district in
the remainder of the State in 1977 shall immediately pay over
to that governmental body or school district the amount of
personal property replacement funds which such governmental
body or school district would receive directly under the
provisions of paragraph (2) of this Section, had it levied its
own taxes.
(1) The portion of the Personal Property Tax
Replacement Fund required to be distributed as of the time
allocation is required to be made shall be the amount
available in such Fund as of the time allocation is
required to be made.
The amount available for distribution shall be the
total amount in the fund at such time minus the necessary
administrative and other authorized expenses as limited by
the appropriation and the amount determined by: (a) $2.8
million for fiscal year 1981; (b) for fiscal year 1982,
.54% of the funds distributed from the fund during the
preceding fiscal year; (c) for fiscal year 1983 through
fiscal year 1988, .54% of the funds distributed from the
fund during the preceding fiscal year less .02% of such
fund for fiscal year 1983 and less .02% of such funds for
each fiscal year thereafter; (d) for fiscal year 1989
through fiscal year 2011 no more than 105% of the actual
administrative expenses of the prior fiscal year; (e) for
fiscal year 2012 and beyond, a sufficient amount to pay (i)
stipends, additional compensation, salary reimbursements,
and other amounts directed to be paid out of this Fund for
local officials as authorized or required by statute and
(ii) no more than 105% of the actual administrative
expenses of the prior fiscal year, including payment of the
ordinary and contingent expenses of the Property Tax Appeal
Board and payment of the expenses of the Department of
Revenue incurred in administering the collection and
distribution of moneys paid into the Fund; (f) for fiscal
years 2012 and 2013 only, a sufficient amount to pay
stipends, additional compensation, salary reimbursements,
and other amounts directed to be paid out of this Fund for
regional offices and officials as authorized or required by
statute; or (g) for fiscal years year 2018 and 2019 only, a
sufficient amount to pay amounts directed to be paid out of
this Fund for public community college base operating
grants and local health protection grants to certified
local health departments as authorized or required by
appropriation or statute. Such portion of the fund shall be
determined after the transfer into the General Revenue Fund
due to refunds, if any, paid from the General Revenue Fund
during the preceding quarter. If at any time, for any
reason, there is insufficient amount in the Personal
Property Tax Replacement Fund for payments for regional
offices and officials or local officials or payment of
costs of administration or for transfers due to refunds at
the end of any particular month, the amount of such
insufficiency shall be carried over for the purposes of
payments for regional offices and officials, local
officials, transfers into the General Revenue Fund, and
costs of administration to the following month or months.
Net replacement revenue held, and defined above, shall be
transferred by the Treasurer and Comptroller to the
Personal Property Tax Replacement Fund within 10 days of
such certification.
(2) Each quarterly allocation shall first be
apportioned in the following manner: 51.65% for taxing
districts in Cook County and 48.35% for taxing districts in
the remainder of the State.
The Personal Property Replacement Ratio of each taxing
district outside Cook County shall be the ratio which the Tax
Base of that taxing district bears to the Downstate Tax Base.
The Tax Base of each taxing district outside of Cook County is
the personal property tax collections for that taxing district
for the 1977 tax year. The Downstate Tax Base is the personal
property tax collections for all taxing districts in the State
outside of Cook County for the 1977 tax year. The Department of
Revenue shall have authority to review for accuracy and
completeness the personal property tax collections for each
taxing district outside Cook County for the 1977 tax year.
The Personal Property Replacement Ratio of each Cook County
taxing district shall be the ratio which the Tax Base of that
taxing district bears to the Cook County Tax Base. The Tax Base
of each Cook County taxing district is the personal property
tax collections for that taxing district for the 1976 tax year.
The Cook County Tax Base is the personal property tax
collections for all taxing districts in Cook County for the
1976 tax year. The Department of Revenue shall have authority
to review for accuracy and completeness the personal property
tax collections for each taxing district within Cook County for
the 1976 tax year.
For all purposes of this Section 12, amounts paid to a
taxing district for such tax years as may be applicable by a
foreign corporation under the provisions of Section 7-202 of
the Public Utilities Act, as amended, shall be deemed to be
personal property taxes collected by such taxing district for
such tax years as may be applicable. The Director shall
determine from the Illinois Commerce Commission, for any tax
year as may be applicable, the amounts so paid by any such
foreign corporation to any and all taxing districts. The
Illinois Commerce Commission shall furnish such information to
the Director. For all purposes of this Section 12, the Director
shall deem such amounts to be collected personal property taxes
of each such taxing district for the applicable tax year or
years.
Taxing districts located both in Cook County and in one or
more other counties shall receive both a Cook County allocation
and a Downstate allocation determined in the same way as all
other taxing districts.
If any taxing district in existence on July 1, 1979 ceases
to exist, or discontinues its operations, its Tax Base shall
thereafter be deemed to be zero. If the powers, duties and
obligations of the discontinued taxing district are assumed by
another taxing district, the Tax Base of the discontinued
taxing district shall be added to the Tax Base of the taxing
district assuming such powers, duties and obligations.
If two or more taxing districts in existence on July 1,
1979, or a successor or successors thereto shall consolidate
into one taxing district, the Tax Base of such consolidated
taxing district shall be the sum of the Tax Bases of each of
the taxing districts which have consolidated.
If a single taxing district in existence on July 1, 1979,
or a successor or successors thereto shall be divided into two
or more separate taxing districts, the tax base of the taxing
district so divided shall be allocated to each of the resulting
taxing districts in proportion to the then current equalized
assessed value of each resulting taxing district.
If a portion of the territory of a taxing district is
disconnected and annexed to another taxing district of the same
type, the Tax Base of the taxing district from which
disconnection was made shall be reduced in proportion to the
then current equalized assessed value of the disconnected
territory as compared with the then current equalized assessed
value within the entire territory of the taxing district prior
to disconnection, and the amount of such reduction shall be
added to the Tax Base of the taxing district to which
annexation is made.
If a community college district is created after July 1,
1979, beginning on the effective date of this amendatory Act of
1995, its Tax Base shall be 3.5% of the sum of the personal
property tax collected for the 1977 tax year within the
territorial jurisdiction of the district.
The amounts allocated and paid to taxing districts pursuant
to the provisions of this amendatory Act of 1979 shall be
deemed to be substitute revenues for the revenues derived from
taxes imposed on personal property pursuant to the provisions
of the "Revenue Act of 1939" or "An Act for the assessment and
taxation of private car line companies", approved July 22,
1943, as amended, or Section 414 of the Illinois Insurance
Code, prior to the abolition of such taxes and shall be used
for the same purposes as the revenues derived from ad valorem
taxes on real estate.
Monies received by any taxing districts from the Personal
Property Tax Replacement Fund shall be first applied toward
payment of the proportionate amount of debt service which was
previously levied and collected from extensions against
personal property on bonds outstanding as of December 31, 1978
and next applied toward payment of the proportionate share of
the pension or retirement obligations of the taxing district
which were previously levied and collected from extensions
against personal property. For each such outstanding bond
issue, the County Clerk shall determine the percentage of the
debt service which was collected from extensions against real
estate in the taxing district for 1978 taxes payable in 1979,
as related to the total amount of such levies and collections
from extensions against both real and personal property. For
1979 and subsequent years' taxes, the County Clerk shall levy
and extend taxes against the real estate of each taxing
district which will yield the said percentage or percentages of
the debt service on such outstanding bonds. The balance of the
amount necessary to fully pay such debt service shall
constitute a first and prior lien upon the monies received by
each such taxing district through the Personal Property Tax
Replacement Fund and shall be first applied or set aside for
such purpose. In counties having fewer than 3,000,000
inhabitants, the amendments to this paragraph as made by this
amendatory Act of 1980 shall be first applicable to 1980 taxes
to be collected in 1981.

amount of $200,000,000 in fiscal year 2008, reducing by
$40,000,000 in each fiscal year thereafter until this
exemption is eliminated. If said system generated revenues
are less than 50% of said costs, the Board shall remit an
amount equal to the amount of the deficit to the State. The
Treasurer shall deposit any such payment in the Road Fund;
and
(ii) whether, beginning with the 2007 fiscal year, the
aggregate of all fares charged and received for ADA
paratransit services equals the system generated ADA
paratransit services revenue recovery ratio percentage of
the aggregate of all costs of providing such ADA
paratransit services.
(h) If the Authority makes any payment to the State under
paragraph (g), the Authority shall reduce the amount provided
to a Service Board from funds transferred under paragraph (a)
in proportion to the amount by which that Service Board failed
to meet its required system generated revenues recovery ratio.
A Service Board which is affected by a reduction in funds under
this paragraph shall submit to the Authority concurrently with
its next due quarterly report a revised budget incorporating
the reduction in funds. The revised budget must meet the
criteria specified in clauses (i) through (vi) of Section
4.11(b)(2). The Board shall review and act on the revised
budget as provided in Section 4.11(b)(3).

(k) respite care;
(k-5) community reintegration services;
(k-6) flexible senior services;
(k-7) medication management;
(k-8) emergency home response;
(l) other nonmedical social services that may enable
the person to become self-supporting; or
(m) clearinghouse for information provided by senior
citizen home owners who want to rent rooms to or share
living space with other senior citizens.
The Department shall establish eligibility standards for
such services. In determining the amount and nature of services
for which a person may qualify, consideration shall not be
given to the value of cash, property or other assets held in
the name of the person's spouse pursuant to a written agreement
dividing marital property into equal but separate shares or
pursuant to a transfer of the person's interest in a home to
his spouse, provided that the spouse's share of the marital
property is not made available to the person seeking such
services.
Beginning January 1, 2008, the Department shall require as
a condition of eligibility that all new financially eligible
applicants apply for and enroll in medical assistance under
Article V of the Illinois Public Aid Code in accordance with
rules promulgated by the Department.
The Department shall, in conjunction with the Department of
Public Aid (now Department of Healthcare and Family Services),
seek appropriate amendments under Sections 1915 and 1924 of the
Social Security Act. The purpose of the amendments shall be to
extend eligibility for home and community based services under
Sections 1915 and 1924 of the Social Security Act to persons
who transfer to or for the benefit of a spouse those amounts of
income and resources allowed under Section 1924 of the Social
Security Act. Subject to the approval of such amendments, the
Department shall extend the provisions of Section 5-4 of the
Illinois Public Aid Code to persons who, but for the provision
of home or community-based services, would require the level of
care provided in an institution, as is provided for in federal
law. Those persons no longer found to be eligible for receiving
noninstitutional services due to changes in the eligibility
criteria shall be given 45 days notice prior to actual
termination. Those persons receiving notice of termination may
contact the Department and request the determination be
appealed at any time during the 45 day notice period. The
target population identified for the purposes of this Section
are persons age 60 and older with an identified service need.
Priority shall be given to those who are at imminent risk of
institutionalization. The services shall be provided to
eligible persons age 60 and older to the extent that the cost
of the services together with the other personal maintenance
expenses of the persons are reasonably related to the standards
established for care in a group facility appropriate to the
person's condition. These non-institutional services, pilot
projects or experimental facilities may be provided as part of
or in addition to those authorized by federal law or those
funded and administered by the Department of Human Services.
The Departments of Human Services, Healthcare and Family
Services, Public Health, Veterans' Affairs, and Commerce and
Economic Opportunity and other appropriate agencies of State,
federal and local governments shall cooperate with the
Department on Aging in the establishment and development of the
non-institutional services. The Department shall require an
annual audit from all personal assistant and home care aide
vendors contracting with the Department under this Section. The
annual audit shall assure that each audited vendor's procedures
are in compliance with Department's financial reporting
guidelines requiring an administrative and employee wage and
benefits cost split as defined in administrative rules. The
audit is a public record under the Freedom of Information Act.
The Department shall execute, relative to the nursing home
prescreening project, written inter-agency agreements with the
Department of Human Services and the Department of Healthcare
and Family Services, to effect the following: (1) intake
procedures and common eligibility criteria for those persons
who are receiving non-institutional services; and (2) the
establishment and development of non-institutional services in
areas of the State where they are not currently available or
are undeveloped. On and after July 1, 1996, all nursing home
prescreenings for individuals 60 years of age or older shall be
conducted by the Department.
As part of the Department on Aging's routine training of
case managers and case manager supervisors, the Department may
include information on family futures planning for persons who
are age 60 or older and who are caregivers of their adult
children with developmental disabilities. The content of the
training shall be at the Department's discretion.
The Department is authorized to establish a system of
recipient copayment for services provided under this Section,
such copayment to be based upon the recipient's ability to pay
but in no case to exceed the actual cost of the services
provided. Additionally, any portion of a person's income which
is equal to or less than the federal poverty standard shall not
be considered by the Department in determining the copayment.
The level of such copayment shall be adjusted whenever
necessary to reflect any change in the officially designated
federal poverty standard.
The Department, or the Department's authorized
representative, may recover the amount of moneys expended for
services provided to or in behalf of a person under this
Section by a claim against the person's estate or against the
estate of the person's surviving spouse, but no recovery may be
had until after the death of the surviving spouse, if any, and
then only at such time when there is no surviving child who is
under age 21 or blind or who has a permanent and total
disability. This paragraph, however, shall not bar recovery, at
the death of the person, of moneys for services provided to the
person or in behalf of the person under this Section to which
the person was not entitled; provided that such recovery shall
not be enforced against any real estate while it is occupied as
a homestead by the surviving spouse or other dependent, if no
claims by other creditors have been filed against the estate,
or, if such claims have been filed, they remain dormant for
failure of prosecution or failure of the claimant to compel
administration of the estate for the purpose of payment. This
paragraph shall not bar recovery from the estate of a spouse,
under Sections 1915 and 1924 of the Social Security Act and
Section 5-4 of the Illinois Public Aid Code, who precedes a
person receiving services under this Section in death. All
moneys for services paid to or in behalf of the person under
this Section shall be claimed for recovery from the deceased
spouse's estate. "Homestead", as used in this paragraph, means
the dwelling house and contiguous real estate occupied by a
surviving spouse or relative, as defined by the rules and
regulations of the Department of Healthcare and Family
Services, regardless of the value of the property.
The Department shall increase the effectiveness of the
existing Community Care Program by:
(1) ensuring that in-home services included in the care
plan are available on evenings and weekends;
(2) ensuring that care plans contain the services that
eligible participants need based on the number of days in a
month, not limited to specific blocks of time, as
identified by the comprehensive assessment tool selected
by the Department for use statewide, not to exceed the
total monthly service cost maximum allowed for each
service; the Department shall develop administrative rules
to implement this item (2);
(3) ensuring that the participants have the right to
choose the services contained in their care plan and to
direct how those services are provided, based on
administrative rules established by the Department;
(4) ensuring that the determination of need tool is
accurate in determining the participants' level of need; to
achieve this, the Department, in conjunction with the Older
Adult Services Advisory Committee, shall institute a study
of the relationship between the Determination of Need
scores, level of need, service cost maximums, and the
development and utilization of service plans no later than
May 1, 2008; findings and recommendations shall be
presented to the Governor and the General Assembly no later
than January 1, 2009; recommendations shall include all
needed changes to the service cost maximums schedule and
additional covered services;

services that may or may not involve contact with clients,
including but not limited to:
(A) bathing;
(B) grooming;
(C) toileting;

(E) transferring;
(F) respiratory services;
(G) exercise; or
(H) positioning;
(6) ensuring that homemaker program vendors are not
restricted from hiring homemakers who are family members of
clients or recommended by clients; the Department may not,
by rule or policy, require homemakers who are family
members of clients or recommended by clients to accept
assignments in homes other than the client;
(7) ensuring that the State may access maximum federal
matching funds by seeking approval for the Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid Services for modifications to the
State's home and community based services waiver and
additional waiver opportunities, including applying for
enrollment in the Balance Incentive Payment Program by May
1, 2013, in order to maximize federal matching funds; this
shall include, but not be limited to, modification that
reflects all changes in the Community Care Program services
and all increases in the services cost maximum;
(8) ensuring that the determination of need tool
accurately reflects the service needs of individuals with
Alzheimer's disease and related dementia disorders;
(9) ensuring that services are authorized accurately
and consistently for the Community Care Program (CCP); the
Department shall implement a Service Authorization policy
directive; the purpose shall be to ensure that eligibility
and services are authorized accurately and consistently in
the CCP program; the policy directive shall clarify service
authorization guidelines to Care Coordination Units and
Community Care Program providers no later than May 1, 2013;
(10) working in conjunction with Care Coordination
Units, the Department of Healthcare and Family Services,
the Department of Human Services, Community Care Program
providers, and other stakeholders to make improvements to
the Medicaid claiming processes and the Medicaid
enrollment procedures or requirements as needed,
including, but not limited to, specific policy changes or
rules to improve the up-front enrollment of participants in
the Medicaid program and specific policy changes or rules
to insure more prompt submission of bills to the federal
government to secure maximum federal matching dollars as
promptly as possible; the Department on Aging shall have at
least 3 meetings with stakeholders by January 1, 2014 in
order to address these improvements;
(11) requiring home care service providers to comply
with the rounding of hours worked provisions under the
federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and as set forth in
29 CFR 785.48(b) by May 1, 2013;
(12) implementing any necessary policy changes or
promulgating any rules, no later than January 1, 2014, to
assist the Department of Healthcare and Family Services in
moving as many participants as possible, consistent with
federal regulations, into coordinated care plans if a care
coordination plan that covers long term care is available
in the recipient's area; and
(13) maintaining fiscal year 2014 rates at the same
level established on January 1, 2013.
By January 1, 2009 or as soon after the end of the Cash and
Counseling Demonstration Project as is practicable, the
Department may, based on its evaluation of the demonstration
project, promulgate rules concerning personal assistant
services, to include, but need not be limited to,
qualifications, employment screening, rights under fair labor
standards, training, fiduciary agent, and supervision
requirements. All applicants shall be subject to the provisions
of the Health Care Worker Background Check Act.
The Department shall develop procedures to enhance
availability of services on evenings, weekends, and on an
emergency basis to meet the respite needs of caregivers.
Procedures shall be developed to permit the utilization of
services in successive blocks of 24 hours up to the monthly
maximum established by the Department. Workers providing these
services shall be appropriately trained.
Beginning on the effective date of this amendatory Act of
1991, no person may perform chore/housekeeping and home care
aide services under a program authorized by this Section unless
that person has been issued a certificate of pre-service to do
so by his or her employing agency. Information gathered to

provide such records to the Department upon request and upon
termination of the employer's contract with the Department. In
addition, the employing agency is responsible for the issuance
of certifications of in-service training completed to their
employees.
The Department is required to develop a system to ensure
that persons working as home care aides and personal assistants
receive increases in their wages when the federal minimum wage
is increased by requiring vendors to certify that they are
meeting the federal minimum wage statute for home care aides
and personal assistants. An employer that cannot ensure that
the minimum wage increase is being given to home care aides and
personal assistants shall be denied any increase in
reimbursement costs.
The Community Care Program Advisory Committee is created in
the Department on Aging. The Director shall appoint individuals
to serve in the Committee, who shall serve at their own
expense. Members of the Committee must abide by all applicable
ethics laws. The Committee shall advise the Department on
issues related to the Department's program of services to

not be considered by the Department in determining
eligibility. The "protected income" level shall be
determined by the Department, shall never be less than the
federal poverty standard, and shall be adjusted each year
to reflect changes in the Consumer Price Index For All
Urban Consumers as determined by the United States
Department of Labor. The standards must provide that a
person may not have more than $10,000 in assets to be
eligible for the services, and the Department may increase
or decrease the asset limitation by rule. The Department
may not decrease the asset level below $10,000.
The services shall be provided, as established by the
Department by rule, to eligible persons to prevent
unnecessary or premature institutionalization, to the
extent that the cost of the services, together with the
other personal maintenance expenses of the persons, are
reasonably related to the standards established for care in
a group facility appropriate to their condition. These
non-institutional services, pilot projects or experimental
facilities may be provided as part of or in addition to
those authorized by federal law or those funded and
administered by the Illinois Department on Aging. The
Department shall set rates and fees for services in a fair
and equitable manner. Services identical to those offered
by the Department on Aging shall be paid at the same rate.
Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph,
personal Personal assistants shall be paid at a rate
negotiated between the State and an exclusive
representative of personal assistants under a collective
bargaining agreement. In no case shall the Department pay
personal assistants an hourly wage that is less than the
federal minimum wage. Within 30 days after July 6, 2017
(the effective date of Public Act 100-23) this amendatory
Act of the 100th General Assembly, the hourly wage paid to
personal assistants and individual maintenance home health
workers shall be increased by $0.48 per hour.
Solely for the purposes of coverage under the Illinois
Public Labor Relations Act, personal assistants providing
services under the Department's Home Services Program
shall be considered to be public employees and the State of
Illinois shall be considered to be their employer as of
July 16, 2003 (the effective date of Public Act 93-204)
this amendatory Act of the 93rd General Assembly, but not
before. Solely for the purposes of coverage under the
Illinois Public Labor Relations Act, home care and home
health workers who function as personal assistants and
individual maintenance home health workers and who also
provide services under the Department's Home Services
Program shall be considered to be public employees, no
matter whether the State provides such services through
direct fee-for-service arrangements, with the assistance
of a managed care organization or other intermediary, or
otherwise, and the State of Illinois shall be considered to
be the employer of those persons as of January 29, 2013
(the effective date of Public Act 97-1158), but not before
except as otherwise provided under this subsection (f). The
State shall engage in collective bargaining with an
exclusive representative of home care and home health
workers who function as personal assistants and individual
maintenance home health workers working under the Home
Services Program concerning their terms and conditions of
employment that are within the State's control. Nothing in
this paragraph shall be understood to limit the right of
the persons receiving services defined in this Section to
hire and fire home care and home health workers who
function as personal assistants and individual maintenance
home health workers working under the Home Services Program
or to supervise them within the limitations set by the Home
Services Program. The State shall not be considered to be
the employer of home care and home health workers who
function as personal assistants and individual maintenance
home health workers working under the Home Services Program
for any purposes not specifically provided in Public Act
93-204 or Public Act 97-1158, including but not limited to,
purposes of vicarious liability in tort and purposes of
statutory retirement or health insurance benefits. Home
care and home health workers who function as personal
assistants and individual maintenance home health workers
and who also provide services under the Department's Home
Services Program shall not be covered by the State
Employees Group Insurance Act of 1971.
The Department shall execute, relative to nursing home
prescreening, as authorized by Section 4.03 of the Illinois
Act on the Aging, written inter-agency agreements with the
Department on Aging and the Department of Healthcare and
Family Services, to effect the intake procedures and
eligibility criteria for those persons who may need long
term care. On and after July 1, 1996, all nursing home
prescreenings for individuals 18 through 59 years of age
shall be conducted by the Department, or a designee of the
Department.
The Department is authorized to establish a system of
recipient cost-sharing for services provided under this
Section. The cost-sharing shall be based upon the
recipient's ability to pay for services, but in no case
shall the recipient's share exceed the actual cost of the
services provided. Protected income shall not be
considered by the Department in its determination of the
recipient's ability to pay a share of the cost of services.
The level of cost-sharing shall be adjusted each year to
reflect changes in the "protected income" level. The
Department shall deduct from the recipient's share of the
cost of services any money expended by the recipient for
disability-related expenses.
To the extent permitted under the federal Social
Security Act, the Department, or the Department's
authorized representative, may recover the amount of
moneys expended for services provided to or in behalf of a
person under this Section by a claim against the person's
estate or against the estate of the person's surviving
spouse, but no recovery may be had until after the death of
the surviving spouse, if any, and then only at such time
when there is no surviving child who is under age 21 or
blind or who has a permanent and total disability. This
paragraph, however, shall not bar recovery, at the death of
the person, of moneys for services provided to the person
or in behalf of the person under this Section to which the
person was not entitled; provided that such recovery shall
not be enforced against any real estate while it is
occupied as a homestead by the surviving spouse or other
dependent, if no claims by other creditors have been filed
against the estate, or, if such claims have been filed,
they remain dormant for failure of prosecution or failure
of the claimant to compel administration of the estate for
the purpose of payment. This paragraph shall not bar
recovery from the estate of a spouse, under Sections 1915
and 1924 of the Social Security Act and Section 5-4 of the
Illinois Public Aid Code, who precedes a person receiving
services under this Section in death. All moneys for
services paid to or in behalf of the person under this
Section shall be claimed for recovery from the deceased
spouse's estate. "Homestead", as used in this paragraph,
means the dwelling house and contiguous real estate
occupied by a surviving spouse or relative, as defined by
the rules and regulations of the Department of Healthcare
and Family Services, regardless of the value of the
property.
The Department shall submit an annual report on
programs and services provided under this Section. The
report shall be filed with the Governor and the General
Assembly on or before March 30 each year.
The requirement for reporting to the General Assembly
shall be satisfied by filing copies of the report with the
Speaker, the Minority Leader and the Clerk of the House of
Representatives and the President, the Minority Leader and
the Secretary of the Senate and the Legislative Research
Unit, as required by Section 3.1 of the General Assembly
Organization Act, and filing additional copies with the
State Government Report Distribution Center for the
General Assembly as required under paragraph (t) of Section
7 of the State Library Act.
(g) To establish such subdivisions of the Department as
shall be desirable and assign to the various subdivisions
the responsibilities and duties placed upon the Department
by law.
(h) To cooperate and enter into any necessary
agreements with the Department of Employment Security for
the provision of job placement and job referral services to
clients of the Department, including job service
registration of such clients with Illinois Employment
Security offices and making job listings maintained by the
Department of Employment Security available to such
clients.
(i) To possess all powers reasonable and necessary for
the exercise and administration of the powers, duties and
responsibilities of the Department which are provided for
by law.
(j) (Blank).
(k) (Blank).
(l) To establish, operate, and maintain a Statewide
Housing Clearinghouse of information on available,
government subsidized housing accessible to persons with
disabilities and available privately owned housing
accessible to persons with disabilities. The information
shall include, but not be limited to, the location, rental
requirements, access features and proximity to public
transportation of available housing. The Clearinghouse
shall consist of at least a computerized database for the
storage and retrieval of information and a separate or
shared toll free telephone number for use by those seeking
information from the Clearinghouse. Department offices and
personnel throughout the State shall also assist in the
operation of the Statewide Housing Clearinghouse.
Cooperation with local, State, and federal housing
managers shall be sought and extended in order to
frequently and promptly update the Clearinghouse's
information.
(m) To assure that the names and case records of
persons who received or are receiving services from the
Department, including persons receiving vocational
rehabilitation, home services, or other services, and
those attending one of the Department's schools or other
supervised facility shall be confidential and not be open
to the general public. Those case records and reports or
the information contained in those records and reports
shall be disclosed by the Director only to proper law
enforcement officials, individuals authorized by a court,
the General Assembly or any committee or commission of the
General Assembly, and other persons and for reasons as the
Director designates by rule. Disclosure by the Director may
be only in accordance with other applicable law.

ARTICLE 20. TAX COMPLIANCE AND ADMINISTRATION FUND
Section 20-5. The State Finance Act is amended by changing
Section 6z-20 as follows:
(30 ILCS 105/6z-20) (from Ch. 127, par. 142z-20)
Sec. 6z-20. County and Mass Transit District Fund. Of the
money received from the 6.25% general rate (and, beginning July
1, 2000 and through December 31, 2000, the 1.25% rate on motor
fuel and gasohol, and beginning on August 6, 2010 through
August 15, 2010, the 1.25% rate on sales tax holiday items) on
sales subject to taxation under the Retailers' Occupation Tax
Act and Service Occupation Tax Act and paid into the County and
Mass Transit District Fund, distribution to the Regional
Transportation Authority tax fund, created pursuant to Section
4.03 of the Regional Transportation Authority Act, for deposit
therein shall be made based upon the retail sales occurring in
a county having more than 3,000,000 inhabitants. The remainder
shall be distributed to each county having 3,000,000 or fewer
inhabitants based upon the retail sales occurring in each such
county.
For the purpose of determining allocation to the local
government unit, a retail sale by a producer of coal or other
mineral mined in Illinois is a sale at retail at the place
where the coal or other mineral mined in Illinois is extracted
from the earth. This paragraph does not apply to coal or other
mineral when it is delivered or shipped by the seller to the
purchaser at a point outside Illinois so that the sale is
exempt under the United States Constitution as a sale in
interstate or foreign commerce.
Of the money received from the 6.25% general use tax rate
on tangible personal property which is purchased outside
Illinois at retail from a retailer and which is titled or
registered by any agency of this State's government and paid
into the County and Mass Transit District Fund, the amount for
which Illinois addresses for titling or registration purposes
are given as being in each county having more than 3,000,000
inhabitants shall be distributed into the Regional
Transportation Authority tax fund, created pursuant to Section
4.03 of the Regional Transportation Authority Act. The
remainder of the money paid from such sales shall be
distributed to each county based on sales for which Illinois
addresses for titling or registration purposes are given as
being located in the county. Any money paid into the Regional
Transportation Authority Occupation and Use Tax Replacement
Fund from the County and Mass Transit District Fund prior to
January 14, 1991, which has not been paid to the Authority
prior to that date, shall be transferred to the Regional
Transportation Authority tax fund.
Whenever the Department determines that a refund of money
paid into the County and Mass Transit District Fund should be
made to a claimant instead of issuing a credit memorandum, the
Department shall notify the State Comptroller, who shall cause
the order to be drawn for the amount specified, and to the
person named, in such notification from the Department. Such
refund shall be paid by the State Treasurer out of the County
and Mass Transit District Fund.
As soon as possible after the first day of each month,
beginning January 1, 2011, upon certification of the Department
of Revenue, the Comptroller shall order transferred, and the
Treasurer shall transfer, to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund the
local sales tax increment, as defined in the Innovation
Development and Economy Act, collected during the second
preceding calendar month for sales within a STAR bond district
and deposited into the County and Mass Transit District Fund,
less 3% of that amount, which shall be transferred into the Tax
Compliance and Administration Fund and shall be used by the
Department, subject to appropriation, to cover the costs of the
Department in administering the Innovation Development and
Economy Act.
After the monthly transfer to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund,
on or before the 25th day of each calendar month, the
Department shall prepare and certify to the Comptroller the
disbursement of stated sums of money to the Regional
Transportation Authority and to named counties, the counties to
be those entitled to distribution, as hereinabove provided, of
taxes or penalties paid to the Department during the second
preceding calendar month. The amount to be paid to the Regional
Transportation Authority and each county having 3,000,000 or
fewer inhabitants shall be the amount (not including credit
memoranda) collected during the second preceding calendar
month by the Department and paid into the County and Mass
Transit District Fund, plus an amount the Department determines
is necessary to offset any amounts which were erroneously paid
to a different taxing body, and not including an amount equal
to the amount of refunds made during the second preceding
calendar month by the Department, and not including any amount
which the Department determines is necessary to offset any
amounts which were payable to a different taxing body but were
erroneously paid to the Regional Transportation Authority or
county, and not including any amounts that are transferred to
the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund, less 1.5% 2% of the amount to be
paid to the Regional Transportation Authority, which shall be
transferred into the Tax Compliance and Administration Fund.
The Department, at the time of each monthly disbursement to the
Regional Transportation Authority, shall prepare and certify
to the State Comptroller the amount to be transferred into the
Tax Compliance and Administration Fund under this Section.
Within 10 days after receipt, by the Comptroller, of the
disbursement certification to the Regional Transportation
Authority, counties, and the Tax Compliance and Administration
Fund provided for in this Section to be given to the
Comptroller by the Department, the Comptroller shall cause the
orders to be drawn for the respective amounts in accordance
with the directions contained in such certification.
When certifying the amount of a monthly disbursement to the
Regional Transportation Authority or to a county under this
Section, the Department shall increase or decrease that amount
by an amount necessary to offset any misallocation of previous
disbursements. The offset amount shall be the amount
erroneously disbursed within the 6 months preceding the time a
misallocation is discovered.
The provisions directing the distributions from the
special fund in the State Treasury provided for in this Section
and from the Regional Transportation Authority tax fund created
by Section 4.03 of the Regional Transportation Authority Act
shall constitute an irrevocable and continuing appropriation
of all amounts as provided herein. The State Treasurer and
State Comptroller are hereby authorized to make distributions
as provided in this Section.
In construing any development, redevelopment, annexation,
preannexation or other lawful agreement in effect prior to
September 1, 1990, which describes or refers to receipts from a
county or municipal retailers' occupation tax, use tax or
service occupation tax which now cannot be imposed, such
description or reference shall be deemed to include the
replacement revenue for such abolished taxes, distributed from
the County and Mass Transit District Fund or Local Government
Distributive Fund, as the case may be.
(Source: P.A. 100-23, eff. 7-6-17.)
Section 20-10. The Counties Code is amended by changing
Sections 5-1006, 5-1006.5, and 5-1007 as follows:
(55 ILCS 5/5-1006) (from Ch. 34, par. 5-1006)
Sec. 5-1006. Home Rule County Retailers' Occupation Tax
Law. Any county that is a home rule unit may impose a tax upon
all persons engaged in the business of selling tangible
personal property, other than an item of tangible personal
property titled or registered with an agency of this State's
government, at retail in the county on the gross receipts from
such sales made in the course of their business. If imposed,
this tax shall only be imposed in 1/4% increments. On and after
September 1, 1991, this additional tax may not be imposed on
the sales of food for human consumption which is to be consumed
off the premises where it is sold (other than alcoholic
beverages, soft drinks and food which has been prepared for
immediate consumption) and prescription and nonprescription
medicines, drugs, medical appliances and insulin, urine
testing materials, syringes and needles used by diabetics. The
tax imposed by a home rule county pursuant to this Section and
all civil penalties that may be assessed as an incident thereof
shall be collected and enforced by the State Department of
Revenue. The certificate of registration that is issued by the
Department to a retailer under the Retailers' Occupation Tax
Act shall permit the retailer to engage in a business that is
taxable under any ordinance or resolution enacted pursuant to
this Section without registering separately with the
Department under such ordinance or resolution or under this
Section. The Department shall have full power to administer and
enforce this Section; to collect all taxes and penalties due
hereunder; to dispose of taxes and penalties so collected in
the manner hereinafter provided; and to determine all rights to
credit memoranda arising on account of the erroneous payment of
tax or penalty hereunder. In the administration of, and
compliance with, this Section, the Department and persons who
are subject to this Section shall have the same rights,
remedies, privileges, immunities, powers and duties, and be
subject to the same conditions, restrictions, limitations,
penalties and definitions of terms, and employ the same modes
of procedure, as are prescribed in Sections 1, 1a, 1a-1, 1d,
1e, 1f, 1i, 1j, 1k, 1m, 1n, 2 through 2-65 (in respect to all
provisions therein other than the State rate of tax), 4, 5, 5a,
5b, 5c, 5d, 5e, 5f, 5g, 5h, 5i, 5j, 5k, 5l, 6, 6a, 6b, 6c, 6d,
7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 of the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act
and Section 3-7 of the Uniform Penalty and Interest Act, as
fully as if those provisions were set forth herein.
No tax may be imposed by a home rule county pursuant to
this Section unless the county also imposes a tax at the same
rate pursuant to Section 5-1007.
Persons subject to any tax imposed pursuant to the
authority granted in this Section may reimburse themselves for
their seller's tax liability hereunder by separately stating
such tax as an additional charge, which charge may be stated in
combination, in a single amount, with State tax which sellers
are required to collect under the Use Tax Act, pursuant to such
bracket schedules as the Department may prescribe.
Whenever the Department determines that a refund should be
made under this Section to a claimant instead of issuing a
credit memorandum, the Department shall notify the State
Comptroller, who shall cause the order to be drawn for the
amount specified and to the person named in the notification
from the Department. The refund shall be paid by the State
Treasurer out of the home rule county retailers' occupation tax
fund.
The Department shall forthwith pay over to the State
Treasurer, ex officio, as trustee, all taxes and penalties
collected hereunder.
As soon as possible after the first day of each month,
beginning January 1, 2011, upon certification of the Department
of Revenue, the Comptroller shall order transferred, and the
Treasurer shall transfer, to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund the
local sales tax increment, as defined in the Innovation
Development and Economy Act, collected under this Section
during the second preceding calendar month for sales within a
STAR bond district.
After the monthly transfer to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund,
on or before the 25th day of each calendar month, the
Department shall prepare and certify to the Comptroller the
disbursement of stated sums of money to named counties, the
counties to be those from which retailers have paid taxes or
penalties hereunder to the Department during the second
preceding calendar month. The amount to be paid to each county
shall be the amount (not including credit memoranda) collected
hereunder during the second preceding calendar month by the
Department plus an amount the Department determines is
necessary to offset any amounts that were erroneously paid to a
different taxing body, and not including an amount equal to the
amount of refunds made during the second preceding calendar
month by the Department on behalf of such county, and not
including any amount which the Department determines is
necessary to offset any amounts which were payable to a
different taxing body but were erroneously paid to the county,
and not including any amounts that are transferred to the STAR
Bonds Revenue Fund, less 1.5% 2% of the remainder, which the
Department shall transfer into the Tax Compliance and
Administration Fund. The Department, at the time of each
monthly disbursement to the counties, shall prepare and certify
to the State Comptroller the amount to be transferred into the
Tax Compliance and Administration Fund under this Section.
Within 10 days after receipt, by the Comptroller, of the
disbursement certification to the counties and the Tax
Compliance and Administration Fund provided for in this Section
to be given to the Comptroller by the Department, the
Comptroller shall cause the orders to be drawn for the
respective amounts in accordance with the directions contained
in the certification.
In addition to the disbursement required by the preceding
paragraph, an allocation shall be made in March of each year to
each county that received more than $500,000 in disbursements
under the preceding paragraph in the preceding calendar year.
The allocation shall be in an amount equal to the average
monthly distribution made to each such county under the
preceding paragraph during the preceding calendar year
(excluding the 2 months of highest receipts). The distribution
made in March of each year subsequent to the year in which an
allocation was made pursuant to this paragraph and the
preceding paragraph shall be reduced by the amount allocated
and disbursed under this paragraph in the preceding calendar
year. The Department shall prepare and certify to the
Comptroller for disbursement the allocations made in
accordance with this paragraph.
For the purpose of determining the local governmental unit
whose tax is applicable, a retail sale by a producer of coal or
other mineral mined in Illinois is a sale at retail at the
place where the coal or other mineral mined in Illinois is
extracted from the earth. This paragraph does not apply to coal
or other mineral when it is delivered or shipped by the seller
to the purchaser at a point outside Illinois so that the sale
is exempt under the United States Constitution as a sale in
interstate or foreign commerce.
Nothing in this Section shall be construed to authorize a
county to impose a tax upon the privilege of engaging in any
business which under the Constitution of the United States may
not be made the subject of taxation by this State.
An ordinance or resolution imposing or discontinuing a tax
hereunder or effecting a change in the rate thereof shall be
adopted and a certified copy thereof filed with the Department
on or before the first day of June, whereupon the Department
shall proceed to administer and enforce this Section as of the
first day of September next following such adoption and filing.
Beginning January 1, 1992, an ordinance or resolution imposing
or discontinuing the tax hereunder or effecting a change in the
rate thereof shall be adopted and a certified copy thereof
filed with the Department on or before the first day of July,
whereupon the Department shall proceed to administer and
enforce this Section as of the first day of October next
following such adoption and filing. Beginning January 1, 1993,
an ordinance or resolution imposing or discontinuing the tax
hereunder or effecting a change in the rate thereof shall be
adopted and a certified copy thereof filed with the Department
on or before the first day of October, whereupon the Department
shall proceed to administer and enforce this Section as of the
first day of January next following such adoption and filing.
Beginning April 1, 1998, an ordinance or resolution imposing or
discontinuing the tax hereunder or effecting a change in the
rate thereof shall either (i) be adopted and a certified copy
thereof filed with the Department on or before the first day of
April, whereupon the Department shall proceed to administer and
enforce this Section as of the first day of July next following
the adoption and filing; or (ii) be adopted and a certified
copy thereof filed with the Department on or before the first
day of October, whereupon the Department shall proceed to
administer and enforce this Section as of the first day of
January next following the adoption and filing.
When certifying the amount of a monthly disbursement to a
county under this Section, the Department shall increase or
decrease such amount by an amount necessary to offset any
misallocation of previous disbursements. The offset amount
shall be the amount erroneously disbursed within the previous 6
months from the time a misallocation is discovered.
This Section shall be known and may be cited as the Home
Rule County Retailers' Occupation Tax Law.

(55 ILCS 5/5-1006.5)
Sec. 5-1006.5. Special County Retailers' Occupation Tax
For Public Safety, Public Facilities, or Transportation.
(a) The county board of any county may impose a tax upon
all persons engaged in the business of selling tangible
personal property, other than personal property titled or
registered with an agency of this State's government, at retail
in the county on the gross receipts from the sales made in the
course of business to provide revenue to be used exclusively
for public safety, public facility, or transportation purposes
in that county, if a proposition for the tax has been submitted
to the electors of that county and approved by a majority of
those voting on the question. If imposed, this tax shall be
imposed only in one-quarter percent increments. By resolution,
the county board may order the proposition to be submitted at
any election. If the tax is imposed for transportation purposes
for expenditures for public highways or as authorized under the
Illinois Highway Code, the county board must publish notice of
the existence of its long-range highway transportation plan as
required or described in Section 5-301 of the Illinois Highway
Code and must make the plan publicly available prior to
approval of the ordinance or resolution imposing the tax. If
the tax is imposed for transportation purposes for expenditures
for passenger rail transportation, the county board must
publish notice of the existence of its long-range passenger
rail transportation plan and must make the plan publicly
available prior to approval of the ordinance or resolution
imposing the tax.
If a tax is imposed for public facilities purposes, then
the name of the project may be included in the proposition at
the discretion of the county board as determined in the
enabling resolution. For example, the "XXX Nursing Home" or the
"YYY Museum".
The county clerk shall certify the question to the proper
election authority, who shall submit the proposition at an
election in accordance with the general election law.
(1) The proposition for public safety purposes shall be
in substantially the following form:
"To pay for public safety purposes, shall (name of
county) be authorized to impose an increase on its share of
local sales taxes by (insert rate)?"
As additional information on the ballot below the
question shall appear the following:
"This would mean that a consumer would pay an
additional (insert amount) in sales tax for every $100 of
tangible personal property bought at retail."
The county board may also opt to establish a sunset
provision at which time the additional sales tax would
cease being collected, if not terminated earlier by a vote
of the county board. If the county board votes to include a
sunset provision, the proposition for public safety
purposes shall be in substantially the following form:
"To pay for public safety purposes, shall (name of
county) be authorized to impose an increase on its share of
local sales taxes by (insert rate) for a period not to
exceed (insert number of years)?"
As additional information on the ballot below the
question shall appear the following:
"This would mean that a consumer would pay an
additional (insert amount) in sales tax for every $100 of
tangible personal property bought at retail. If imposed,
the additional tax would cease being collected at the end
of (insert number of years), if not terminated earlier by a
vote of the county board."
For the purposes of the paragraph, "public safety
purposes" means crime prevention, detention, fire
fighting, police, medical, ambulance, or other emergency

notwithstanding the omission of the additional information
that is otherwise required to be printed on the ballot
below the question pursuant to this item (1).
(2) The proposition for transportation purposes shall
be in substantially the following form:
"To pay for improvements to roads and other

sales taxes by (insert rate)?"
As additional information on the ballot below the
question shall appear the following:
"This would mean that a consumer would pay an
additional (insert amount) in sales tax for every $100 of
tangible personal property bought at retail."
The county board may also opt to establish a sunset
provision at which time the additional sales tax would
cease being collected, if not terminated earlier by a vote
of the county board. If the county board votes to include a
sunset provision, the proposition for transportation
purposes shall be in substantially the following form:
"To pay for road improvements and other transportation
purposes, shall (name of county) be authorized to impose an
increase on its share of local sales taxes by (insert rate)
for a period not to exceed (insert number of years)?"
As additional information on the ballot below the

additional (insert amount) in sales tax for every $100 of
tangible personal property bought at retail."
The county board may also opt to establish a sunset
provision at which time the additional sales tax would
cease being collected, if not terminated earlier by a vote
of the county board. If the county board votes to include a
sunset provision, the proposition for public facilities
purposes shall be in substantially the following form:

vote of the county board."
For purposes of this Section, "public facilities
purposes" means the acquisition, development,
construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation, improvement,
financing, architectural planning, and installation of
capital facilities consisting of buildings, structures,
and durable equipment and for the acquisition and
improvement of real property and interest in real property

This additional tax may not be imposed on the sales of food
for human consumption that is to be consumed off the premises
where it is sold (other than alcoholic beverages, soft drinks,
and food which has been prepared for immediate consumption) and
prescription and non-prescription medicines, drugs, medical
appliances and insulin, urine testing materials, syringes, and
needles used by diabetics. The tax imposed by a county under
this Section and all civil penalties that may be assessed as an
incident of the tax shall be collected and enforced by the
Illinois Department of Revenue and deposited into a special
fund created for that purpose. The certificate of registration
that is issued by the Department to a retailer under the
Retailers' Occupation Tax Act shall permit the retailer to
engage in a business that is taxable without registering
separately with the Department under an ordinance or resolution
under this Section. The Department has full power to administer
and enforce this Section, to collect all taxes and penalties
due under this Section, to dispose of taxes and penalties so
collected in the manner provided in this Section, and to
determine all rights to credit memoranda arising on account of
the erroneous payment of a tax or penalty under this Section.
In the administration of and compliance with this Section, the
Department and persons who are subject to this Section shall
(i) have the same rights, remedies, privileges, immunities,
powers, and duties, (ii) be subject to the same conditions,
restrictions, limitations, penalties, and definitions of
terms, and (iii) employ the same modes of procedure as are
prescribed in Sections 1, 1a, 1a-1, 1d, 1e, 1f, 1i, 1j, 1k, 1m,
1n, 2 through 2-70 (in respect to all provisions contained in
those Sections other than the State rate of tax), 2a, 2b, 2c, 3
(except provisions relating to transaction returns and quarter
monthly payments), 4, 5, 5a, 5b, 5c, 5d, 5e, 5f, 5g, 5h, 5i,

of the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act and Section 3-7 of the
Uniform Penalty and Interest Act as if those provisions were
set forth in this Section.
Persons subject to any tax imposed under the authority
granted in this Section may reimburse themselves for their
sellers' tax liability by separately stating the tax as an
additional charge, which charge may be stated in combination,
in a single amount, with State tax which sellers are required
to collect under the Use Tax Act, pursuant to such bracketed
schedules as the Department may prescribe.
Whenever the Department determines that a refund should be
made under this Section to a claimant instead of issuing a
credit memorandum, the Department shall notify the State
Comptroller, who shall cause the order to be drawn for the
amount specified and to the person named in the notification
from the Department. The refund shall be paid by the State
Treasurer out of the County Public Safety or Transportation
Retailers' Occupation Tax Fund.
(b) If a tax has been imposed under subsection (a), a
service occupation tax shall also be imposed at the same rate
upon all persons engaged, in the county, in the business of
making sales of service, who, as an incident to making those
sales of service, transfer tangible personal property within
the county as an incident to a sale of service. This tax may
not be imposed on sales of food for human consumption that is
to be consumed off the premises where it is sold (other than
alcoholic beverages, soft drinks, and food prepared for
immediate consumption) and prescription and non-prescription
medicines, drugs, medical appliances and insulin, urine
testing materials, syringes, and needles used by diabetics. The
tax imposed under this subsection and all civil penalties that
may be assessed as an incident thereof shall be collected and
enforced by the Department of Revenue. The Department has full
power to administer and enforce this subsection; to collect all
taxes and penalties due hereunder; to dispose of taxes and
penalties so collected in the manner hereinafter provided; and
to determine all rights to credit memoranda arising on account
of the erroneous payment of tax or penalty hereunder. In the
administration of, and compliance with this subsection, the
Department and persons who are subject to this paragraph shall
(i) have the same rights, remedies, privileges, immunities,
powers, and duties, (ii) be subject to the same conditions,
restrictions, limitations, penalties, exclusions, exemptions,
and definitions of terms, and (iii) employ the same modes of
procedure as are prescribed in Sections 2 (except that the
reference to State in the definition of supplier maintaining a
place of business in this State shall mean the county), 2a, 2b,
2c, 3 through 3-50 (in respect to all provisions therein other
than the State rate of tax), 4 (except that the reference to
the State shall be to the county), 5, 7, 8 (except that the
jurisdiction to which the tax shall be a debt to the extent
indicated in that Section 8 shall be the county), 9 (except as
to the disposition of taxes and penalties collected), 10, 11,
12 (except the reference therein to Section 2b of the
Retailers' Occupation Tax Act), 13 (except that any reference

and 20 of the Service Occupation Tax Act and Section 3-7 of the
Uniform Penalty and Interest Act, as fully as if those
provisions were set forth herein.
Persons subject to any tax imposed under the authority
granted in this subsection may reimburse themselves for their
serviceman's tax liability by separately stating the tax as an
additional charge, which charge may be stated in combination,
in a single amount, with State tax that servicemen are
authorized to collect under the Service Use Tax Act, in
accordance with such bracket schedules as the Department may
prescribe.
Whenever the Department determines that a refund should be
made under this subsection to a claimant instead of issuing a
credit memorandum, the Department shall notify the State
Comptroller, who shall cause the warrant to be drawn for the
amount specified, and to the person named, in the notification
from the Department. The refund shall be paid by the State
Treasurer out of the County Public Safety or Transportation
Retailers' Occupation Fund.
Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to authorize
the county to impose a tax upon the privilege of engaging in
any business which under the Constitution of the United States
may not be made the subject of taxation by the State.
(c) The Department shall immediately pay over to the State
Treasurer, ex officio, as trustee, all taxes and penalties
collected under this Section to be deposited into the County
Public Safety or Transportation Retailers' Occupation Tax
Fund, which shall be an unappropriated trust fund held outside
of the State treasury.
As soon as possible after the first day of each month,
beginning January 1, 2011, upon certification of the Department
of Revenue, the Comptroller shall order transferred, and the
Treasurer shall transfer, to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund the
local sales tax increment, as defined in the Innovation
Development and Economy Act, collected under this Section
during the second preceding calendar month for sales within a
STAR bond district.
After the monthly transfer to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund,
on or before the 25th day of each calendar month, the
Department shall prepare and certify to the Comptroller the
disbursement of stated sums of money to the counties from which
retailers have paid taxes or penalties to the Department during
the second preceding calendar month. The amount to be paid to
each county, and deposited by the county into its special fund
created for the purposes of this Section, shall be the amount
(not including credit memoranda) collected under this Section
during the second preceding calendar month by the Department
plus an amount the Department determines is necessary to offset
any amounts that were erroneously paid to a different taxing
body, and not including (i) an amount equal to the amount of
refunds made during the second preceding calendar month by the
Department on behalf of the county, (ii) any amount that the
Department determines is necessary to offset any amounts that
were payable to a different taxing body but were erroneously
paid to the county, (iii) any amounts that are transferred to
the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund, and (iv) 1.5% 2% of the remainder,
which shall be transferred into the Tax Compliance and
Administration Fund. The Department, at the time of each
monthly disbursement to the counties, shall prepare and certify
to the State Comptroller the amount to be transferred into the
Tax Compliance and Administration Fund under this subsection.
Within 10 days after receipt by the Comptroller of the
disbursement certification to the counties and the Tax
Compliance and Administration Fund provided for in this Section
to be given to the Comptroller by the Department, the
Comptroller shall cause the orders to be drawn for the
respective amounts in accordance with directions contained in
the certification.
In addition to the disbursement required by the preceding
paragraph, an allocation shall be made in March of each year to
each county that received more than $500,000 in disbursements
under the preceding paragraph in the preceding calendar year.
The allocation shall be in an amount equal to the average
monthly distribution made to each such county under the
preceding paragraph during the preceding calendar year
(excluding the 2 months of highest receipts). The distribution
made in March of each year subsequent to the year in which an
allocation was made pursuant to this paragraph and the
preceding paragraph shall be reduced by the amount allocated
and disbursed under this paragraph in the preceding calendar
year. The Department shall prepare and certify to the
Comptroller for disbursement the allocations made in

unit whose tax is applicable, a retail sale by a producer of
coal or another mineral mined in Illinois is a sale at retail
at the place where the coal or other mineral mined in Illinois
is extracted from the earth. This paragraph does not apply to
coal or another mineral when it is delivered or shipped by the
seller to the purchaser at a point outside Illinois so that the
sale is exempt under the United States Constitution as a sale
in interstate or foreign commerce.
(e) Nothing in this Section shall be construed to authorize
a county to impose a tax upon the privilege of engaging in any
business that under the Constitution of the United States may
not be made the subject of taxation by this State.
(e-5) If a county imposes a tax under this Section, the
county board may, by ordinance, discontinue or lower the rate
of the tax. If the county board lowers the tax rate or

with subsection (a) of this Section in order to increase the
rate of the tax or to reimpose the discontinued tax.
(f) Beginning April 1, 1998 and through December 31, 2013,

a tax under this Section or effecting a change in the rate of
tax, or any ordinance lowering the rate or discontinuing the

Illinois Department of Revenue either (i) on or before the
first day of April, whereupon the Department shall proceed to
administer and enforce the tax as of the first day of July next
following the filing; or (ii) on or before the first day of

first day of October, whereupon the Department shall proceed to
administer and enforce the tax as of the first day of January
next following the adoption and filing.
(g) When certifying the amount of a monthly disbursement to
a county under this Section, the Department shall increase or
decrease the amounts by an amount necessary to offset any
miscalculation of previous disbursements. The offset amount
shall be the amount erroneously disbursed within the previous 6
months from the time a miscalculation is discovered.
(h) This Section may be cited as the "Special County
Occupation Tax For Public Safety, Public Facilities, or
Transportation Law".
(i) For purposes of this Section, "public safety" includes,
but is not limited to, crime prevention, detention, fire
fighting, police, medical, ambulance, or other emergency
services. The county may share tax proceeds received under this

their serviceman's tax liability hereunder by separately
stating such tax as an additional charge, which charge may be
stated in combination, in a single amount, with State tax which

collected hereunder.
As soon as possible after the first day of each month,
beginning January 1, 2011, upon certification of the Department
of Revenue, the Comptroller shall order transferred, and the
Treasurer shall transfer, to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund the

Department shall prepare and certify to the Comptroller the
disbursement of stated sums of money to named counties, the
counties to be those from which suppliers and servicemen have
paid taxes or penalties hereunder to the Department during the
second preceding calendar month. The amount to be paid to each
county shall be the amount (not including credit memoranda)
collected hereunder during the second preceding calendar month
by the Department, and not including an amount equal to the
amount of refunds made during the second preceding calendar
month by the Department on behalf of such county, and not
including any amounts that are transferred to the STAR Bonds

shall be reduced by the amount allocated and disbursed under
this paragraph in the preceding calendar year. The Department
shall prepare and certify to the Comptroller for disbursement
the allocations made in accordance with this paragraph.
Nothing in this Section shall be construed to authorize a
county to impose a tax upon the privilege of engaging in any
business which under the Constitution of the United States may
not be made the subject of taxation by this State.
An ordinance or resolution imposing or discontinuing a tax
hereunder or effecting a change in the rate thereof shall be

No tax may be imposed by a home rule municipality under
this Section unless the municipality also imposes a tax at the
same rate under Section 8-11-5 of this Act.
Persons subject to any tax imposed under the authority
granted in this Section may reimburse themselves for their
seller's tax liability hereunder by separately stating that tax
as an additional charge, which charge may be stated in
combination, in a single amount, with State tax which sellers
are required to collect under the Use Tax Act, pursuant to such
bracket schedules as the Department may prescribe.
Whenever the Department determines that a refund should be
made under this Section to a claimant instead of issuing a
credit memorandum, the Department shall notify the State
Comptroller, who shall cause the order to be drawn for the
amount specified and to the person named in the notification
from the Department. The refund shall be paid by the State
Treasurer out of the home rule municipal retailers' occupation
tax fund.
The Department shall immediately pay over to the State
Treasurer, ex officio, as trustee, all taxes and penalties
collected hereunder.
As soon as possible after the first day of each month,
beginning January 1, 2011, upon certification of the Department
of Revenue, the Comptroller shall order transferred, and the
Treasurer shall transfer, to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund the
local sales tax increment, as defined in the Innovation
Development and Economy Act, collected under this Section
during the second preceding calendar month for sales within a
STAR bond district.
After the monthly transfer to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund,
on or before the 25th day of each calendar month, the
Department shall prepare and certify to the Comptroller the
disbursement of stated sums of money to named municipalities,
the municipalities to be those from which retailers have paid
taxes or penalties hereunder to the Department during the
second preceding calendar month. The amount to be paid to each
municipality shall be the amount (not including credit
memoranda) collected hereunder during the second preceding
calendar month by the Department plus an amount the Department
determines is necessary to offset any amounts that were
erroneously paid to a different taxing body, and not including
an amount equal to the amount of refunds made during the second
preceding calendar month by the Department on behalf of such
municipality, and not including any amount that the Department
determines is necessary to offset any amounts that were payable
to a different taxing body but were erroneously paid to the
municipality, and not including any amounts that are
transferred to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund, less 1.5% 2% of the
remainder, which the Department shall transfer into the Tax
Compliance and Administration Fund. The Department, at the time
of each monthly disbursement to the municipalities, shall
prepare and certify to the State Comptroller the amount to be
transferred into the Tax Compliance and Administration Fund
under this Section. Within 10 days after receipt by the
Comptroller of the disbursement certification to the
municipalities and the Tax Compliance and Administration Fund
provided for in this Section to be given to the Comptroller by
the Department, the Comptroller shall cause the orders to be
drawn for the respective amounts in accordance with the
directions contained in the certification.
In addition to the disbursement required by the preceding
paragraph and in order to mitigate delays caused by
distribution procedures, an allocation shall, if requested, be
made within 10 days after January 14, 1991, and in November of
1991 and each year thereafter, to each municipality that
received more than $500,000 during the preceding fiscal year,
(July 1 through June 30) whether collected by the municipality
or disbursed by the Department as required by this Section.
Within 10 days after January 14, 1991, participating
municipalities shall notify the Department in writing of their
intent to participate. In addition, for the initial
distribution, participating municipalities shall certify to
the Department the amounts collected by the municipality for
each month under its home rule occupation and service
occupation tax during the period July 1, 1989 through June 30,
1990. The allocation within 10 days after January 14, 1991,
shall be in an amount equal to the monthly average of these
amounts, excluding the 2 months of highest receipts. The
monthly average for the period of July 1, 1990 through June 30,
1991 will be determined as follows: the amounts collected by
the municipality under its home rule occupation and service
occupation tax during the period of July 1, 1990 through
September 30, 1990, plus amounts collected by the Department
and paid to such municipality through June 30, 1991, excluding
the 2 months of highest receipts. The monthly average for each
subsequent period of July 1 through June 30 shall be an amount
equal to the monthly distribution made to each such
municipality under the preceding paragraph during this period,
excluding the 2 months of highest receipts. The distribution
made in November 1991 and each year thereafter under this
paragraph and the preceding paragraph shall be reduced by the
amount allocated and disbursed under this paragraph in the
preceding period of July 1 through June 30. The Department
shall prepare and certify to the Comptroller for disbursement
the allocations made in accordance with this paragraph.
For the purpose of determining the local governmental unit
whose tax is applicable, a retail sale by a producer of coal or
other mineral mined in Illinois is a sale at retail at the

or other mineral when it is delivered or shipped by the seller
to the purchaser at a point outside Illinois so that the sale
is exempt under the United States Constitution as a sale in
interstate or foreign commerce.
Nothing in this Section shall be construed to authorize a
municipality to impose a tax upon the privilege of engaging in
any business which under the Constitution of the United States
may not be made the subject of taxation by this State.
An ordinance or resolution imposing or discontinuing a tax
hereunder or effecting a change in the rate thereof shall be

in excess of 3,000,000 that elected to become a home rule unit
at the general primary election in 1994 may adopt an ordinance
or resolution imposing the tax under this Section and file a
certified copy of the ordinance or resolution with the
Department on or before July 1, 1994. The Department shall then
proceed to administer and enforce this Section as of October 1,
1994. Beginning April 1, 1998, an ordinance or resolution
imposing or discontinuing the tax hereunder or effecting a
change in the rate thereof shall either (i) be adopted and a

the first day of April, whereupon the Department shall proceed
to administer and enforce this Section as of the first day of
July next following the adoption and filing; or (ii) be adopted
and a certified copy thereof filed with the Department on or
before the first day of October, whereupon the Department shall
proceed to administer and enforce this Section as of the first
day of January next following the adoption and filing.
When certifying the amount of a monthly disbursement to a
municipality under this Section, the Department shall increase
or decrease the amount by an amount necessary to offset any
misallocation of previous disbursements. The offset amount
shall be the amount erroneously disbursed within the previous 6
months from the time a misallocation is discovered.
Any unobligated balance remaining in the Municipal
Retailers' Occupation Tax Fund on December 31, 1989, which fund

Tax Act and Section 3-7 of the Uniform Penalty and Interest
Act, as fully as if those provisions were set forth herein.
No tax may be imposed by a home rule municipality pursuant
to this Section unless such municipality also imposes a tax at
the same rate pursuant to Section 8-11-1 of this Act.
Persons subject to any tax imposed pursuant to the
authority granted in this Section may reimburse themselves for
their serviceman's tax liability hereunder by separately

on or before the 25th day of each calendar month, the
Department shall prepare and certify to the Comptroller the
disbursement of stated sums of money to named municipalities,
the municipalities to be those from which suppliers and
servicemen have paid taxes or penalties hereunder to the
Department during the second preceding calendar month. The
amount to be paid to each municipality shall be the amount (not
including credit memoranda) collected hereunder during the
second preceding calendar month by the Department, and not
including an amount equal to the amount of refunds made during
the second preceding calendar month by the Department on behalf
of such municipality, and not including any amounts that are

transferred into the Tax Compliance and Administration Fund
under this Section. Within 10 days after receipt, by the
Comptroller, of the disbursement certification to the
municipalities and the Tax Compliance and Administration Fund
provided for in this Section to be given to the Comptroller by
the Department, the Comptroller shall cause the orders to be
drawn for the respective amounts in accordance with the
directions contained in such certification.
In addition to the disbursement required by the preceding
paragraph and in order to mitigate delays caused by
distribution procedures, an allocation shall, if requested, be
made within 10 days after January 14, 1991, and in November of
1991 and each year thereafter, to each municipality that
received more than $500,000 during the preceding fiscal year,

distribution, participating municipalities shall certify to
the Department the amounts collected by the municipality for
each month under its home rule occupation and service
occupation tax during the period July 1, 1989 through June 30,
1990. The allocation within 10 days after January 14, 1991,
shall be in an amount equal to the monthly average of these
amounts, excluding the 2 months of highest receipts. Monthly
average for the period of July 1, 1990 through June 30, 1991
will be determined as follows: the amounts collected by the
municipality under its home rule occupation and service
occupation tax during the period of July 1, 1990 through
September 30, 1990, plus amounts collected by the Department
and paid to such municipality through June 30, 1991, excluding
the 2 months of highest receipts. The monthly average for each
subsequent period of July 1 through June 30 shall be an amount
equal to the monthly distribution made to each such
municipality under the preceding paragraph during this period,
excluding the 2 months of highest receipts. The distribution
made in November 1991 and each year thereafter under this
paragraph and the preceding paragraph shall be reduced by the
amount allocated and disbursed under this paragraph in the
preceding period of July 1 through June 30. The Department
shall prepare and certify to the Comptroller for disbursement
the allocations made in accordance with this paragraph.

amount specified and to the person named in the notification
from the Department. The refund shall be paid by the State
Treasurer out of the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority
trust fund held by the State Treasurer as trustee for the
Authority.
Persons subject to any tax imposed under the authority
granted in this subsection may reimburse themselves for their
tax liability for that tax by separately stating that tax as an
additional charge, which charge may be stated in combination,
in a single amount, with State taxes imposed under the Hotel
Operators' Occupation Tax Act, the municipal tax imposed under
Section 8-3-13 of the Illinois Municipal Code, and the tax
imposed under Section 19 of the Illinois Sports Facilities
Authority Act.
The person filing the return shall, at the time of filing
the return, pay to the Department the amount of tax, less a

Comptroller the amounts to be paid under subsection (g) of this
Section, which shall be the amounts (not including credit
memoranda) collected under this subsection during the second
preceding calendar month by the Department, less any amounts
determined by the Department to be necessary for payment of
refunds, less 1.5% 2% of the remainder, which the Department
shall transfer into the Tax Compliance and Administration Fund.
The Department, at the time of each monthly disbursement to the
Authority, shall prepare and certify to the State Comptroller
the amount to be transferred into the Tax Compliance and
Administration Fund under this subsection. Within 10 days after
receipt by the Comptroller of the Department's certification,
the Comptroller shall cause the orders to be drawn for such
amounts, and the Treasurer shall administer the amounts
distributed to the Authority as required in subsection (g).
A certified copy of any ordinance imposing or discontinuing
a tax under this subsection or effecting a change in the rate
of that tax shall be filed with the Illinois Department of
Revenue, whereupon the Department shall proceed to administer
and enforce this subsection on behalf of the Authority as of
the first day of the third calendar month following the date of
filing.
(d) By ordinance the Authority shall, as soon as
practicable after July 1, 1992 (the effective date of Public
Act 87-733) this amendatory Act of 1991, impose a tax upon all
persons engaged in the business of renting automobiles in the
metropolitan area at the rate of 6% of the gross receipts from
that business, except that no tax shall be imposed on the
business of renting automobiles for use as taxicabs or in
livery service. The tax imposed under this subsection and all
civil penalties that may be assessed as an incident to that tax
shall be collected and enforced by the Illinois Department of
Revenue. The certificate of registration issued by the
Department to a retailer under the Retailers' Occupation Tax
Act or under the Automobile Renting Occupation and Use Tax Act
shall permit that person to engage in a business that is
taxable under any ordinance enacted under this subsection
without registering separately with the Department under that
ordinance or under this subsection. The Department shall have
full power to administer and enforce this subsection, to
collect all taxes and penalties due under this subsection, to
dispose of taxes and penalties so collected in the manner
provided in this subsection, and to determine all rights to
credit memoranda arising on account of the erroneous payment of
tax or penalty under this subsection. In the administration of
and compliance with this subsection, the Department and persons
who are subject to this subsection shall have the same rights,
remedies, privileges, immunities, powers, and duties, be
subject to the same conditions, restrictions, limitations,
penalties, and definitions of terms, and employ the same modes
of procedure as are prescribed in Sections 2 and 3 (in respect
to all provisions of those Sections other than the State rate
of tax; and in respect to the provisions of the Retailers'
Occupation Tax Act referred to in those Sections, except as to
the disposition of taxes and penalties collected, except for
the provision allowing retailers a deduction from the tax to
cover certain costs, and except that credit memoranda issued
under this subsection may not be used to discharge any State
tax liability) of the Automobile Renting Occupation and Use Tax
Act, as fully as if provisions contained in those Sections of
that Act were set forth in this subsection.
Persons subject to any tax imposed under the authority
granted in this subsection may reimburse themselves for their
tax liability under this subsection by separately stating that
tax as an additional charge, which charge may be stated in
combination, in a single amount, with State tax that sellers
are required to collect under the Automobile Renting Occupation
and Use Tax Act, pursuant to bracket schedules as the
Department may prescribe.
Whenever the Department determines that a refund should be
made under this subsection to a claimant instead of issuing a
credit memorandum, the Department shall notify the State
Comptroller, who shall cause a warrant to be drawn for the
amount specified and to the person named in the notification
from the Department. The refund shall be paid by the State
Treasurer out of the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority
trust fund held by the State Treasurer as trustee for the
Authority.
Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph, the
Department shall forthwith pay over to the State Treasurer, ex
officio, as trustee, all taxes and penalties collected under
this subsection for deposit into a trust fund held outside the
State Treasury. On or before the 25th day of each calendar
month, the Department shall certify to the Comptroller the
amounts to be paid under subsection (g) of this Section (not
including credit memoranda) collected under this subsection
during the second preceding calendar month by the Department,
less any amount determined by the Department to be necessary
for payment of refunds, less 1.5% 2% of the remainder, which
the Department shall transfer into the Tax Compliance and
Administration Fund. The Department, at the time of each
monthly disbursement to the Authority, shall prepare and
certify to the State Comptroller the amount to be transferred
into the Tax Compliance and Administration Fund under this
subsection. Within 10 days after receipt by the Comptroller of
the Department's certification, the Comptroller shall cause
the orders to be drawn for such amounts, and the Treasurer
shall administer the amounts distributed to the Authority as
required in subsection (g).
Nothing in this subsection authorizes the Authority to
impose a tax upon the privilege of engaging in any business
that under the Constitution of the United States may not be
made the subject of taxation by this State.
A certified copy of any ordinance imposing or discontinuing
a tax under this subsection or effecting a change in the rate
of that tax shall be filed with the Illinois Department of
Revenue, whereupon the Department shall proceed to administer
and enforce this subsection on behalf of the Authority as of
the first day of the third calendar month following the date of
filing.
(e) By ordinance the Authority shall, as soon as
practicable after July 1, 1992 (the effective date of Public
Act 87-733) this amendatory Act of 1991, impose a tax upon the
privilege of using in the metropolitan area an automobile that
is rented from a rentor outside Illinois and is titled or
registered with an agency of this State's government at a rate
of 6% of the rental price of that automobile, except that no
tax shall be imposed on the privilege of using automobiles
rented for use as taxicabs or in livery service. The tax shall
be collected from persons whose Illinois address for titling or
registration purposes is given as being in the metropolitan
area. The tax shall be collected by the Department of Revenue
for the Authority. The tax must be paid to the State or an
exemption determination must be obtained from the Department of
Revenue before the title or certificate of registration for the
property may be issued. The tax or proof of exemption may be
transmitted to the Department by way of the State agency with
which or State officer with whom the tangible personal property
must be titled or registered if the Department and that agency
or State officer determine that this procedure will expedite
the processing of applications for title or registration.
The Department shall have full power to administer and
enforce this subsection, to collect all taxes, penalties, and
interest due under this subsection, to dispose of taxes,
penalties, and interest so collected in the manner provided in
this subsection, and to determine all rights to credit
memoranda or refunds arising on account of the erroneous
payment of tax, penalty, or interest under this subsection. In
the administration of and compliance with this subsection, the
Department and persons who are subject to this subsection shall
have the same rights, remedies, privileges, immunities,
powers, and duties, be subject to the same conditions,
restrictions, limitations, penalties, and definitions of
terms, and employ the same modes of procedure as are prescribed
in Sections 2 and 4 (except provisions pertaining to the State
rate of tax; and in respect to the provisions of the Use Tax
Act referred to in that Section, except provisions concerning
collection or refunding of the tax by retailers, except the
provisions of Section 19 pertaining to claims by retailers,
except the last paragraph concerning refunds, and except that
credit memoranda issued under this subsection may not be used
to discharge any State tax liability) of the Automobile Renting
Occupation and Use Tax Act, as fully as if provisions contained
in those Sections of that Act were set forth in this
subsection.
Whenever the Department determines that a refund should be
made under this subsection to a claimant instead of issuing a
credit memorandum, the Department shall notify the State
Comptroller, who shall cause a warrant to be drawn for the
amount specified and to the person named in the notification
from the Department. The refund shall be paid by the State
Treasurer out of the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority
trust fund held by the State Treasurer as trustee for the
Authority.
Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph, the
Department shall forthwith pay over to the State Treasurer, ex
officio, as trustee, all taxes, penalties, and interest
collected under this subsection for deposit into a trust fund
held outside the State Treasury. On or before the 25th day of
each calendar month, the Department shall certify to the State
Comptroller the amounts to be paid under subsection (g) of this
Section, which shall be the amounts (not including credit
memoranda) collected under this subsection during the second
preceding calendar month by the Department, less any amounts
determined by the Department to be necessary for payment of
refunds, less 1.5% 2% of the remainder, which the Department
shall transfer into the Tax Compliance and Administration Fund.
The Department, at the time of each monthly disbursement to the
Authority, shall prepare and certify to the State Comptroller
the amount to be transferred into the Tax Compliance and
Administration Fund under this subsection. Within 10 days after
receipt by the State Comptroller of the Department's
certification, the Comptroller shall cause the orders to be
drawn for such amounts, and the Treasurer shall administer the
amounts distributed to the Authority as required in subsection
(g).
A certified copy of any ordinance imposing or discontinuing
a tax or effecting a change in the rate of that tax shall be
filed with the Illinois Department of Revenue, whereupon the
Department shall proceed to administer and enforce this
subsection on behalf of the Authority as of the first day of
the third calendar month following the date of filing.
(f) By ordinance the Authority shall, as soon as
practicable after July 1, 1992 (the effective date of Public
Act 87-733) this amendatory Act of 1991, impose an occupation
tax on all persons, other than a governmental agency, engaged
in the business of providing ground transportation for hire to
passengers in the metropolitan area at a rate of (i) $4 per
taxi or livery vehicle departure with passengers for hire from
commercial service airports in the metropolitan area, (ii) for
each departure with passengers for hire from a commercial
service airport in the metropolitan area in a bus or van
operated by a person other than a person described in item
(iii): $18 per bus or van with a capacity of 1-12 passengers,
$36 per bus or van with a capacity of 13-24 passengers, and $54
per bus or van with a capacity of over 24 passengers, and (iii)
for each departure with passengers for hire from a commercial
service airport in the metropolitan area in a bus or van
operated by a person regulated by the Interstate Commerce
Commission or Illinois Commerce Commission, operating
scheduled service from the airport, and charging fares on a per
passenger basis: $2 per passenger for hire in each bus or van.
The term "commercial service airports" means those airports
receiving scheduled passenger service and enplaning more than
100,000 passengers per year.
In the ordinance imposing the tax, the Authority may
provide for the administration and enforcement of the tax and
the collection of the tax from persons subject to the tax as
the Authority determines to be necessary or practicable for the
effective administration of the tax. The Authority may enter
into agreements as it deems appropriate with any governmental
agency providing for that agency to act as the Authority's
agent to collect the tax.
In the ordinance imposing the tax, the Authority may
designate a method or methods for persons subject to the tax to
reimburse themselves for the tax liability arising under the
ordinance (i) by separately stating the full amount of the tax
liability as an additional charge to passengers departing the
airports, (ii) by separately stating one-half of the tax
liability as an additional charge to both passengers departing
from and to passengers arriving at the airports, or (iii) by
some other method determined by the Authority.
All taxes, penalties, and interest collected under any
ordinance adopted under this subsection, less any amounts
determined to be necessary for the payment of refunds and less
the taxes, penalties, and interest attributable to any increase
in the rate of tax authorized by Public Act 96-898, shall be
paid forthwith to the State Treasurer, ex officio, for deposit
into a trust fund held outside the State Treasury and shall be
administered by the State Treasurer as provided in subsection
(g) of this Section. All taxes, penalties, and interest
attributable to any increase in the rate of tax authorized by
Public Act 96-898 shall be paid by the State Treasurer as
follows: 25% for deposit into the Convention Center Support
Fund, to be used by the Village of Rosemont for the repair,
maintenance, and improvement of the Donald E. Stephens
Convention Center and for debt service on debt instruments
issued for those purposes by the village and 75% to the
Authority to be used for grants to an organization meeting the
qualifications set out in Section 5.6 of this Act, provided the
Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority has entered into a
marketing agreement with such an organization.
(g) Amounts deposited from the proceeds of taxes imposed by
the Authority under subsections (b), (c), (d), (e), and (f) of
this Section and amounts deposited under Section 19 of the
Illinois Sports Facilities Authority Act shall be held in a
trust fund outside the State Treasury and, other than the
amounts transferred into the Tax Compliance and Administration
Fund under subsections (b), (c), (d), and (e), shall be
administered by the Treasurer as follows:
(1) An amount necessary for the payment of refunds with
respect to those taxes shall be retained in the trust fund
and used for those payments.
(2) On July 20 and on the 20th of each month
thereafter, provided that the amount requested in the
annual certificate of the Chairman of the Authority filed
under Section 8.25f of the State Finance Act has been
appropriated for payment to the Authority, 1/8 of the local
tax transfer amount, together with any cumulative
deficiencies in the amounts transferred into the McCormick
Place Expansion Project Fund under this subparagraph (2)
during the fiscal year for which the certificate has been
filed, shall be transferred from the trust fund into the
McCormick Place Expansion Project Fund in the State
treasury until 100% of the local tax transfer amount has
been so transferred. "Local tax transfer amount" shall mean
the amount requested in the annual certificate, minus the
reduction amount. "Reduction amount" shall mean $41.7
million in fiscal year 2011, $36.7 million in fiscal year
2012, $36.7 million in fiscal year 2013, $36.7 million in
fiscal year 2014, and $31.7 million in each fiscal year
thereafter until 2032, provided that the reduction amount
shall be reduced by (i) the amount certified by the
Authority to the State Comptroller and State Treasurer
under Section 8.25 of the State Finance Act, as amended,
with respect to that fiscal year and (ii) in any fiscal
year in which the amounts deposited in the trust fund under
this Section exceed $318.3 million, exclusive of amounts
set aside for refunds and for the reserve account, one
dollar for each dollar of the deposits in the trust fund
above $318.3 million with respect to that year, exclusive
of amounts set aside for refunds and for the reserve
account.
(3) On July 20, 2010, the Comptroller shall certify to
the Governor, the Treasurer, and the Chairman of the
Authority the 2010 deficiency amount, which means the
cumulative amount of transfers that were due from the trust
fund to the McCormick Place Expansion Project Fund in
fiscal years 2008, 2009, and 2010 under Section 13(g) of
this Act, as it existed prior to May 27, 2010 (the
effective date of Public Act 96-898), but not made. On July
20, 2011 and on July 20 of each year through July 20, 2014,
the Treasurer shall calculate for the previous fiscal year
the surplus revenues in the trust fund and pay that amount
to the Authority. On July 20, 2015 and on July 20 of each
year thereafter to and including July 20, 2017, as long as
bonds and notes issued under Section 13.2 or bonds and
notes issued to refund those bonds and notes are
outstanding, the Treasurer shall calculate for the
previous fiscal year the surplus revenues in the trust fund
and pay one-half of that amount to the State Treasurer for
deposit into the General Revenue Fund until the 2010
deficiency amount has been paid and shall pay the balance
of the surplus revenues to the Authority. On July 20, 2018
and on July 20 of each year thereafter, the Treasurer shall
calculate for the previous fiscal year the surplus revenues
in the trust fund and pay all of such surplus revenues to
the State Treasurer for deposit into the General Revenue
Fund until the 2010 deficiency amount has been paid. After
the 2010 deficiency amount has been paid, the Treasurer
shall pay the balance of the surplus revenues to the
Authority. "Surplus revenues" means the amounts remaining
in the trust fund on June 30 of the previous fiscal year
(A) after the State Treasurer has set aside in the trust
fund (i) amounts retained for refunds under subparagraph
(1) and (ii) any amounts necessary to meet the reserve
account amount and (B) after the State Treasurer has
transferred from the trust fund to the General Revenue Fund
100% of any post-2010 deficiency amount. "Reserve account
amount" means $15 million in fiscal year 2011 and $30
million in each fiscal year thereafter. The reserve account
amount shall be set aside in the trust fund and used as a
reserve to be transferred to the McCormick Place Expansion
Project Fund in the event the proceeds of taxes imposed
under this Section 13 are not sufficient to fund the
transfer required in subparagraph (2). "Post-2010
deficiency amount" means any deficiency in transfers from
the trust fund to the McCormick Place Expansion Project
Fund with respect to fiscal years 2011 and thereafter. It
is the intention of this subparagraph (3) that no surplus
revenues shall be paid to the Authority with respect to any
year in which a post-2010 deficiency amount has not been
satisfied by the Authority.
Moneys received by the Authority as surplus revenues may be
used (i) for the purposes of paying debt service on the bonds
and notes issued by the Authority, including early redemption
of those bonds or notes, (ii) for the purposes of repair,
replacement, and improvement of the grounds, buildings, and
facilities of the Authority, and (iii) for the corporate
purposes of the Authority in fiscal years 2011 through 2015 in
an amount not to exceed $20,000,000 annually or $80,000,000
total, which amount shall be reduced $0.75 for each dollar of
the receipts of the Authority in that year from any contract
entered into with respect to naming rights at McCormick Place
under Section 5(m) of this Act. When bonds and notes issued
under Section 13.2, or bonds or notes issued to refund those
bonds and notes, are no longer outstanding, the balance in the
trust fund shall be paid to the Authority.
(h) The ordinances imposing the taxes authorized by this
Section shall be repealed when bonds and notes issued under
Section 13.2 or bonds and notes issued to refund those bonds
and notes are no longer outstanding.

Section 20-25. The Metro-East Park and Recreation District
Act is amended by changing Section 30 as follows:
(70 ILCS 1605/30)
Sec. 30. Taxes.
(a) The board shall impose a tax upon all persons engaged
in the business of selling tangible personal property, other
than personal property titled or registered with an agency of
this State's government, at retail in the District on the gross
receipts from the sales made in the course of business. This
tax shall be imposed only at the rate of one-tenth of one per
cent.
This additional tax may not be imposed on the sales of food
for human consumption that is to be consumed off the premises
where it is sold (other than alcoholic beverages, soft drinks,
and food which has been prepared for immediate consumption) and
prescription and non-prescription medicines, drugs, medical
appliances, and insulin, urine testing materials, syringes,
and needles used by diabetics. The tax imposed by the Board
under this Section and all civil penalties that may be assessed
as an incident of the tax shall be collected and enforced by
the Department of Revenue. The certificate of registration that
is issued by the Department to a retailer under the Retailers'
Occupation Tax Act shall permit the retailer to engage in a
business that is taxable without registering separately with
the Department under an ordinance or resolution under this
Section. The Department has full power to administer and
enforce this Section, to collect all taxes and penalties due
under this Section, to dispose of taxes and penalties so
collected in the manner provided in this Section, and to
determine all rights to credit memoranda arising on account of
the erroneous payment of a tax or penalty under this Section.
In the administration of and compliance with this Section, the
Department and persons who are subject to this Section shall
(i) have the same rights, remedies, privileges, immunities,
powers, and duties, (ii) be subject to the same conditions,
restrictions, limitations, penalties, and definitions of
terms, and (iii) employ the same modes of procedure as are
prescribed in Sections 1, 1a, 1a-1, 1d, 1e, 1f, 1i, 1j, 1k, 1m,
1n, 2, 2-5, 2-5.5, 2-10 (in respect to all provisions contained
in those Sections other than the State rate of tax), 2-12, 2-15
through 2-70, 2a, 2b, 2c, 3 (except provisions relating to
transaction returns and quarter monthly payments), 4, 5, 5a,
5b, 5c, 5d, 5e, 5f, 5g, 5h, 5i, 5j, 5k, 5l, 6, 6a, 6b, 6c, 6d,
7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 11a, 12, and 13 of the Retailers' Occupation
Tax Act and the Uniform Penalty and Interest Act as if those
provisions were set forth in this Section.
Persons subject to any tax imposed under the authority
granted in this Section may reimburse themselves for their
sellers' tax liability by separately stating the tax as an
additional charge, which charge may be stated in combination,
in a single amount, with State tax which sellers are required
to collect under the Use Tax Act, pursuant to such bracketed
schedules as the Department may prescribe.
Whenever the Department determines that a refund should be
made under this Section to a claimant instead of issuing a
credit memorandum, the Department shall notify the State
Comptroller, who shall cause the order to be drawn for the
amount specified and to the person named in the notification
from the Department. The refund shall be paid by the State
Treasurer out of the State Metro-East Park and Recreation
District Fund.
(b) If a tax has been imposed under subsection (a), a
service occupation tax shall also be imposed at the same rate
upon all persons engaged, in the District, in the business of
making sales of service, who, as an incident to making those
sales of service, transfer tangible personal property within
the District as an incident to a sale of service. This tax may
not be imposed on sales of food for human consumption that is
to be consumed off the premises where it is sold (other than
alcoholic beverages, soft drinks, and food prepared for
immediate consumption) and prescription and non-prescription
medicines, drugs, medical appliances, and insulin, urine
testing materials, syringes, and needles used by diabetics. The
tax imposed under this subsection and all civil penalties that
may be assessed as an incident thereof shall be collected and
enforced by the Department of Revenue. The Department has full
power to administer and enforce this subsection; to collect all
taxes and penalties due hereunder; to dispose of taxes and
penalties so collected in the manner hereinafter provided; and
to determine all rights to credit memoranda arising on account
of the erroneous payment of tax or penalty hereunder. In the
administration of, and compliance with this subsection, the
Department and persons who are subject to this paragraph shall
(i) have the same rights, remedies, privileges, immunities,
powers, and duties, (ii) be subject to the same conditions,
restrictions, limitations, penalties, exclusions, exemptions,
and definitions of terms, and (iii) employ the same modes of
procedure as are prescribed in Sections 2 (except that the
reference to State in the definition of supplier maintaining a
place of business in this State shall mean the District), 2a,
2b, 2c, 3 through 3-50 (in respect to all provisions therein
other than the State rate of tax), 4 (except that the reference
to the State shall be to the District), 5, 7, 8 (except that
the jurisdiction to which the tax shall be a debt to the extent
indicated in that Section 8 shall be the District), 9 (except
as to the disposition of taxes and penalties collected), 10,
11, 12 (except the reference therein to Section 2b of the
Retailers' Occupation Tax Act), 13 (except that any reference
to the State shall mean the District), Sections 15, 16, 17, 18,
19 and 20 of the Service Occupation Tax Act and the Uniform
Penalty and Interest Act, as fully as if those provisions were
set forth herein.
Persons subject to any tax imposed under the authority
granted in this subsection may reimburse themselves for their
serviceman's tax liability by separately stating the tax as an
additional charge, which charge may be stated in combination,
in a single amount, with State tax that servicemen are
authorized to collect under the Service Use Tax Act, in
accordance with such bracket schedules as the Department may
prescribe.
Whenever the Department determines that a refund should be
made under this subsection to a claimant instead of issuing a
credit memorandum, the Department shall notify the State
Comptroller, who shall cause the warrant to be drawn for the
amount specified, and to the person named, in the notification
from the Department. The refund shall be paid by the State
Treasurer out of the State Metro-East Park and Recreation
District Fund.
Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to authorize
the board to impose a tax upon the privilege of engaging in any
business which under the Constitution of the United States may
not be made the subject of taxation by the State.
(c) The Department shall immediately pay over to the State
Treasurer, ex officio, as trustee, all taxes and penalties
collected under this Section to be deposited into the State
Metro-East Park and Recreation District Fund, which shall be an
unappropriated trust fund held outside of the State treasury.
As soon as possible after the first day of each month,
beginning January 1, 2011, upon certification of the Department
of Revenue, the Comptroller shall order transferred, and the
Treasurer shall transfer, to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund the
local sales tax increment, as defined in the Innovation
Development and Economy Act, collected under this Section
during the second preceding calendar month for sales within a
STAR bond district. The Department shall make this
certification only if the Metro East Park and Recreation
District imposes a tax on real property as provided in the
definition of "local sales taxes" under the Innovation
Development and Economy Act.
After the monthly transfer to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund,
on or before the 25th day of each calendar month, the
Department shall prepare and certify to the Comptroller the
disbursement of stated sums of money pursuant to Section 35 of
this Act to the District from which retailers have paid taxes
or penalties to the Department during the second preceding
calendar month. The amount to be paid to the District shall be
the amount (not including credit memoranda) collected under
this Section during the second preceding calendar month by the
Department plus an amount the Department determines is
necessary to offset any amounts that were erroneously paid to a
different taxing body, and not including (i) an amount equal to
the amount of refunds made during the second preceding calendar
month by the Department on behalf of the District, (ii) any
amount that the Department determines is necessary to offset
any amounts that were payable to a different taxing body but
were erroneously paid to the District, (iii) any amounts that
are transferred to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund, and (iv) 1.5%
2% of the remainder, which the Department shall transfer into
the Tax Compliance and Administration Fund. The Department, at
the time of each monthly disbursement to the District, shall
prepare and certify to the State Comptroller the amount to be
transferred into the Tax Compliance and Administration Fund
under this subsection. Within 10 days after receipt by the
Comptroller of the disbursement certification to the District
and the Tax Compliance and Administration Fund provided for in
this Section to be given to the Comptroller by the Department,
the Comptroller shall cause the orders to be drawn for the
respective amounts in accordance with directions contained in
the certification.
(d) For the purpose of determining whether a tax authorized
under this Section is applicable, a retail sale by a producer
of coal or another mineral mined in Illinois is a sale at
retail at the place where the coal or other mineral mined in
Illinois is extracted from the earth. This paragraph does not
apply to coal or another mineral when it is delivered or
shipped by the seller to the purchaser at a point outside
Illinois so that the sale is exempt under the United States
Constitution as a sale in interstate or foreign commerce.
(e) Nothing in this Section shall be construed to authorize
the board to impose a tax upon the privilege of engaging in any
business that under the Constitution of the United States may
not be made the subject of taxation by this State.
(f) An ordinance imposing a tax under this Section or an
ordinance extending the imposition of a tax to an additional
county or counties shall be certified by the board and filed
with the Department of Revenue either (i) on or before the
first day of April, whereupon the Department shall proceed to
administer and enforce the tax as of the first day of July next
following the filing; or (ii) on or before the first day of
October, whereupon the Department shall proceed to administer
and enforce the tax as of the first day of January next
following the filing.
(g) When certifying the amount of a monthly disbursement to
the District under this Section, the Department shall increase
or decrease the amounts by an amount necessary to offset any
misallocation of previous disbursements. The offset amount
shall be the amount erroneously disbursed within the previous 6
months from the time a misallocation is discovered.

Section 20-30. The Local Mass Transit District Act is
amended by changing Section 5.01 as follows:
(70 ILCS 3610/5.01) (from Ch. 111 2/3, par. 355.01)
Sec. 5.01. Metro East Mass Transit District; use and
occupation taxes.
(a) The Board of Trustees of any Metro East Mass Transit
District may, by ordinance adopted with the concurrence of
two-thirds of the then trustees, impose throughout the District
any or all of the taxes and fees provided in this Section. All
taxes and fees imposed under this Section shall be used only
for public mass transportation systems, and the amount used to
provide mass transit service to unserved areas of the District
shall be in the same proportion to the total proceeds as the
number of persons residing in the unserved areas is to the
total population of the District. Except as otherwise provided
in this Act, taxes imposed under this Section and civil
penalties imposed incident thereto shall be collected and
enforced by the State Department of Revenue. The Department
shall have the power to administer and enforce the taxes and to
determine all rights for refunds for erroneous payments of the
taxes.
(b) The Board may impose a Metro East Mass Transit District
Retailers' Occupation Tax upon all persons engaged in the
business of selling tangible personal property at retail in the
district at a rate of 1/4 of 1%, or as authorized under
subsection (d-5) of this Section, of the gross receipts from
the sales made in the course of such business within the
district. The tax imposed under this Section and all civil
penalties that may be assessed as an incident thereof shall be
collected and enforced by the State Department of Revenue. The
Department shall have full power to administer and enforce this
Section; to collect all taxes and penalties so collected in the
manner hereinafter provided; and to determine all rights to
credit memoranda arising on account of the erroneous payment of
tax or penalty hereunder. In the administration of, and
compliance with, this Section, the Department and persons who
are subject to this Section shall have the same rights,
remedies, privileges, immunities, powers and duties, and be
subject to the same conditions, restrictions, limitations,
penalties, exclusions, exemptions and definitions of terms and
employ the same modes of procedure, as are prescribed in
Sections 1, 1a, 1a-1, 1c, 1d, 1e, 1f, 1i, 1j, 2 through 2-65
(in respect to all provisions therein other than the State rate
of tax), 2c, 3 (except as to the disposition of taxes and
penalties collected), 4, 5, 5a, 5c, 5d, 5e, 5f, 5g, 5h, 5i, 5j,
5k, 5l, 6, 6a, 6b, 6c, 6d, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 14 of
the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act and Section 3-7 of the
Uniform Penalty and Interest Act, as fully as if those
provisions were set forth herein.
Persons subject to any tax imposed under the Section may
reimburse themselves for their seller's tax liability
hereunder by separately stating the tax as an additional
charge, which charge may be stated in combination, in a single
amount, with State taxes that sellers are required to collect
under the Use Tax Act, in accordance with such bracket
schedules as the Department may prescribe.
Whenever the Department determines that a refund should be
made under this Section to a claimant instead of issuing a
credit memorandum, the Department shall notify the State
Comptroller, who shall cause the warrant to be drawn for the
amount specified, and to the person named, in the notification
from the Department. The refund shall be paid by the State
Treasurer out of the Metro East Mass Transit District tax fund
established under paragraph (h) of this Section.
If a tax is imposed under this subsection (b), a tax shall
also be imposed under subsections (c) and (d) of this Section.
For the purpose of determining whether a tax authorized
under this Section is applicable, a retail sale, by a producer
of coal or other mineral mined in Illinois, is a sale at retail
at the place where the coal or other mineral mined in Illinois
is extracted from the earth. This paragraph does not apply to
coal or other mineral when it is delivered or shipped by the
seller to the purchaser at a point outside Illinois so that the
sale is exempt under the Federal Constitution as a sale in
interstate or foreign commerce.
No tax shall be imposed or collected under this subsection
on the sale of a motor vehicle in this State to a resident of
another state if that motor vehicle will not be titled in this
State.
Nothing in this Section shall be construed to authorize the
Metro East Mass Transit District to impose a tax upon the
privilege of engaging in any business which under the
Constitution of the United States may not be made the subject
of taxation by this State.
(c) If a tax has been imposed under subsection (b), a Metro
East Mass Transit District Service Occupation Tax shall also be
imposed upon all persons engaged, in the district, in the
business of making sales of service, who, as an incident to
making those sales of service, transfer tangible personal
property within the District, either in the form of tangible
personal property or in the form of real estate as an incident
to a sale of service. The tax rate shall be 1/4%, or as
authorized under subsection (d-5) of this Section, of the
selling price of tangible personal property so transferred
within the district. The tax imposed under this paragraph and
all civil penalties that may be assessed as an incident thereof
shall be collected and enforced by the State Department of
Revenue. The Department shall have full power to administer and
enforce this paragraph; to collect all taxes and penalties due
hereunder; to dispose of taxes and penalties so collected in
the manner hereinafter provided; and to determine all rights to
credit memoranda arising on account of the erroneous payment of
tax or penalty hereunder. In the administration of, and
compliance with this paragraph, the Department and persons who
are subject to this paragraph shall have the same rights,
remedies, privileges, immunities, powers and duties, and be
subject to the same conditions, restrictions, limitations,
penalties, exclusions, exemptions and definitions of terms and
employ the same modes of procedure as are prescribed in
Sections 1a-1, 2 (except that the reference to State in the
definition of supplier maintaining a place of business in this
State shall mean the Authority), 2a, 3 through 3-50 (in respect
to all provisions therein other than the State rate of tax), 4
(except that the reference to the State shall be to the
Authority), 5, 7, 8 (except that the jurisdiction to which the
tax shall be a debt to the extent indicated in that Section 8
shall be the District), 9 (except as to the disposition of
taxes and penalties collected, and except that the returned
merchandise credit for this tax may not be taken against any
State tax), 10, 11, 12 (except the reference therein to Section
2b of the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act), 13 (except that any
reference to the State shall mean the District), the first
paragraph of Section 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20 of the Service
Occupation Tax Act and Section 3-7 of the Uniform Penalty and
Interest Act, as fully as if those provisions were set forth
herein.
Persons subject to any tax imposed under the authority
granted in this paragraph may reimburse themselves for their
serviceman's tax liability hereunder by separately stating the
tax as an additional charge, which charge may be stated in
combination, in a single amount, with State tax that servicemen
are authorized to collect under the Service Use Tax Act, in
accordance with such bracket schedules as the Department may
prescribe.
Whenever the Department determines that a refund should be
made under this paragraph to a claimant instead of issuing a
credit memorandum, the Department shall notify the State
Comptroller, who shall cause the warrant to be drawn for the
amount specified, and to the person named, in the notification
from the Department. The refund shall be paid by the State
Treasurer out of the Metro East Mass Transit District tax fund
established under paragraph (h) of this Section.
Nothing in this paragraph shall be construed to authorize
the District to impose a tax upon the privilege of engaging in
any business which under the Constitution of the United States
may not be made the subject of taxation by the State.
(d) If a tax has been imposed under subsection (b), a Metro
East Mass Transit District Use Tax shall also be imposed upon
the privilege of using, in the district, any item of tangible
personal property that is purchased outside the district at
retail from a retailer, and that is titled or registered with
an agency of this State's government, at a rate of 1/4%, or as
authorized under subsection (d-5) of this Section, of the
selling price of the tangible personal property within the
District, as "selling price" is defined in the Use Tax Act. The
tax shall be collected from persons whose Illinois address for
titling or registration purposes is given as being in the
District. The tax shall be collected by the Department of
Revenue for the Metro East Mass Transit District. The tax must
be paid to the State, or an exemption determination must be
obtained from the Department of Revenue, before the title or
certificate of registration for the property may be issued. The
tax or proof of exemption may be transmitted to the Department
by way of the State agency with which, or the State officer
with whom, the tangible personal property must be titled or
registered if the Department and the State agency or State
officer determine that this procedure will expedite the
processing of applications for title or registration.
The Department shall have full power to administer and
enforce this paragraph; to collect all taxes, penalties and
interest due hereunder; to dispose of taxes, penalties and
interest so collected in the manner hereinafter provided; and
to determine all rights to credit memoranda or refunds arising
on account of the erroneous payment of tax, penalty or interest
hereunder. In the administration of, and compliance with, this
paragraph, the Department and persons who are subject to this
paragraph shall have the same rights, remedies, privileges,
immunities, powers and duties, and be subject to the same
conditions, restrictions, limitations, penalties, exclusions,
exemptions and definitions of terms and employ the same modes
of procedure, as are prescribed in Sections 2 (except the
definition of "retailer maintaining a place of business in this
State"), 3 through 3-80 (except provisions pertaining to the
State rate of tax, and except provisions concerning collection
or refunding of the tax by retailers), 4, 11, 12, 12a, 14, 15,
19 (except the portions pertaining to claims by retailers and
except the last paragraph concerning refunds), 20, 21 and 22 of
the Use Tax Act and Section 3-7 of the Uniform Penalty and
Interest Act, that are not inconsistent with this paragraph, as
fully as if those provisions were set forth herein.
Whenever the Department determines that a refund should be
made under this paragraph to a claimant instead of issuing a
credit memorandum, the Department shall notify the State
Comptroller, who shall cause the order to be drawn for the
amount specified, and to the person named, in the notification
from the Department. The refund shall be paid by the State
Treasurer out of the Metro East Mass Transit District tax fund
established under paragraph (h) of this Section.

(B) Two thousand five hundred electors of any Metro East
Mass Transit District may petition the Chief Judge of the
Circuit Court, or any judge of that Circuit designated by the
Chief Judge, in which that District is located to cause to be
submitted to a vote of the electors the question whether the
tax rates for the Metro East Mass Transit District Retailers'
Occupation Tax, the Metro East Mass Transit District Service
Occupation Tax, and the Metro East Mass Transit District Use
Tax for the District should be increased from 0.25% to 0.75%.
Upon submission of such petition the court shall set a date
not less than 10 nor more than 30 days thereafter for a hearing
on the sufficiency thereof. Notice of the filing of such
petition and of such date shall be given in writing to the

District Retailers' Occupation Tax, the Metro East Mass
Transit District Service Occupation Tax, and the Metro East
Mass Transit District Use Tax be increased from 0.25% to

Name Address, with Street and Number.
..............................................................
..............................................................
(C) The votes shall be recorded as "YES" or "NO". If a
majority of all votes cast on the proposition are for the
increase in the tax rates, the Metro East Mass Transit District
shall begin imposing the increased rates in the District, and
the Department of Revenue shall begin collecting the increased
amounts, as provided under this Section. An ordinance imposing
or discontinuing a tax hereunder or effecting a change in the
rate thereof shall be adopted and a certified copy thereof
filed with the Department on or before the first day of
October, whereupon the Department shall proceed to administer
and enforce this Section as of the first day of January next
following the adoption and filing, or on or before the first
day of April, whereupon the Department shall proceed to
administer and enforce this Section as of the first day of July
next following the adoption and filing.
(D) If the voters have approved a referendum under this
subsection, before November 1, 1994, to increase the tax rate
under this subsection, the Metro East Mass Transit District
Board of Trustees may adopt by a majority vote an ordinance at
any time before January 1, 1995 that excludes from the rate
increase tangible personal property that is titled or
registered with an agency of this State's government. The
ordinance excluding titled or registered tangible personal
property from the rate increase must be filed with the
Department at least 15 days before its effective date. At any
time after adopting an ordinance excluding from the rate
increase tangible personal property that is titled or
registered with an agency of this State's government, the Metro
East Mass Transit District Board of Trustees may adopt an
ordinance applying the rate increase to that tangible personal
property. The ordinance shall be adopted, and a certified copy
of that ordinance shall be filed with the Department, on or
before October 1, whereupon the Department shall proceed to
administer and enforce the rate increase against tangible
personal property titled or registered with an agency of this
State's government as of the following January 1. After
December 31, 1995, any reimposed rate increase in effect under
this subsection shall no longer apply to tangible personal
property titled or registered with an agency of this State's
government. Beginning January 1, 1996, the Board of Trustees of
any Metro East Mass Transit District may never reimpose a
previously excluded tax rate increase on tangible personal
property titled or registered with an agency of this State's
government. After July 1, 2004, if the voters have approved a
referendum under this subsection to increase the tax rate under
this subsection, the Metro East Mass Transit District Board of
Trustees may adopt by a majority vote an ordinance that
excludes from the rate increase tangible personal property that
is titled or registered with an agency of this State's
government. The ordinance excluding titled or registered
tangible personal property from the rate increase shall be
adopted, and a certified copy of that ordinance shall be filed
with the Department on or before October 1, whereupon the
Department shall administer and enforce this exclusion from the
rate increase as of the following January 1, or on or before
April 1, whereupon the Department shall administer and enforce
this exclusion from the rate increase as of the following July
1. The Board of Trustees of any Metro East Mass Transit
District may never reimpose a previously excluded tax rate
increase on tangible personal property titled or registered
with an agency of this State's government.
(d-6) If the Board of Trustees of any Metro East Mass
Transit District has imposed a rate increase under subsection
(d-5) and filed an ordinance with the Department of Revenue
excluding titled property from the higher rate, then that Board
may, by ordinance adopted with the concurrence of two-thirds of
the then trustees, impose throughout the District a fee. The
fee on the excluded property shall not exceed $20 per retail
transaction or an amount equal to the amount of tax excluded,
whichever is less, on tangible personal property that is titled
or registered with an agency of this State's government.
Beginning July 1, 2004, the fee shall apply only to titled
property that is subject to either the Metro East Mass Transit
District Retailers' Occupation Tax or the Metro East Mass
Transit District Service Occupation Tax. No fee shall be
imposed or collected under this subsection on the sale of a
motor vehicle in this State to a resident of another state if
that motor vehicle will not be titled in this State.
(d-7) Until June 30, 2004, if a fee has been imposed under
subsection (d-6), a fee shall also be imposed upon the
privilege of using, in the district, any item of tangible
personal property that is titled or registered with any agency
of this State's government, in an amount equal to the amount of
the fee imposed under subsection (d-6).
(d-7.1) Beginning July 1, 2004, any fee imposed by the
Board of Trustees of any Metro East Mass Transit District under
subsection (d-6) and all civil penalties that may be assessed
as an incident of the fees shall be collected and enforced by
the State Department of Revenue. Reference to "taxes" in this
Section shall be construed to apply to the administration,
payment, and remittance of all fees under this Section. For
purposes of any fee imposed under subsection (d-6), 4% of the
fee, penalty, and interest received by the Department in the
first 12 months that the fee is collected and enforced by the
Department and 2% of the fee, penalty, and interest following
the first 12 months shall be deposited into the Tax Compliance
and Administration Fund and shall be used by the Department,
subject to appropriation, to cover the costs of the Department.
No retailers' discount shall apply to any fee imposed under
subsection (d-6).
(d-8) No item of titled property shall be subject to both
the higher rate approved by referendum, as authorized under
subsection (d-5), and any fee imposed under subsection (d-6) or
(d-7).
(d-9) (Blank).
(d-10) (Blank).
(e) A certificate of registration issued by the State
Department of Revenue to a retailer under the Retailers'
Occupation Tax Act or under the Service Occupation Tax Act
shall permit the registrant to engage in a business that is
taxed under the tax imposed under paragraphs (b), (c) or (d) of
this Section and no additional registration shall be required
under the tax. A certificate issued under the Use Tax Act or
the Service Use Tax Act shall be applicable with regard to any
tax imposed under paragraph (c) of this Section.
(f) (Blank).
(g) Any ordinance imposing or discontinuing any tax under
this Section shall be adopted and a certified copy thereof
filed with the Department on or before June 1, whereupon the
Department of Revenue shall proceed to administer and enforce
this Section on behalf of the Metro East Mass Transit District
as of September 1 next following such adoption and filing.
Beginning January 1, 1992, an ordinance or resolution imposing
or discontinuing the tax hereunder shall be adopted and a
certified copy thereof filed with the Department on or before
the first day of July, whereupon the Department shall proceed
to administer and enforce this Section as of the first day of
October next following such adoption and filing. Beginning
January 1, 1993, except as provided in subsection (d-5) of this
Section, an ordinance or resolution imposing or discontinuing
the tax hereunder shall be adopted and a certified copy thereof
filed with the Department on or before the first day of
October, whereupon the Department shall proceed to administer
and enforce this Section as of the first day of January next
following such adoption and filing, or, beginning January 1,
2004, on or before the first day of April, whereupon the
Department shall proceed to administer and enforce this Section
as of the first day of July next following the adoption and
filing.
(h) Except as provided in subsection (d-7.1), the State
Department of Revenue shall, upon collecting any taxes as
provided in this Section, pay the taxes over to the State
Treasurer as trustee for the District. The taxes shall be held
in a trust fund outside the State Treasury.
As soon as possible after the first day of each month,
beginning January 1, 2011, upon certification of the Department
of Revenue, the Comptroller shall order transferred, and the
Treasurer shall transfer, to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund the
local sales tax increment, as defined in the Innovation
Development and Economy Act, collected under this Section
during the second preceding calendar month for sales within a
STAR bond district. The Department shall make this
certification only if the local mass transit district imposes a
tax on real property as provided in the definition of "local
sales taxes" under the Innovation Development and Economy Act.
After the monthly transfer to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund,
on or before the 25th day of each calendar month, the State
Department of Revenue shall prepare and certify to the
Comptroller of the State of Illinois the amount to be paid to
the District, which shall be the amount (not including credit
memoranda) collected under this Section during the second
preceding calendar month by the Department plus an amount the
Department determines is necessary to offset any amounts that
were erroneously paid to a different taxing body, and not
including any amount equal to the amount of refunds made during
the second preceding calendar month by the Department on behalf
of the District, and not including any amount that the
Department determines is necessary to offset any amounts that
were payable to a different taxing body but were erroneously
paid to the District, and less any amounts that are transferred
to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund, less 1.5% 2% of the remainder,
which the Department shall transfer into the Tax Compliance and
Administration Fund. The Department, at the time of each
monthly disbursement to the District, shall prepare and certify
to the State Comptroller the amount to be transferred into the
Tax Compliance and Administration Fund under this subsection.
Within 10 days after receipt by the Comptroller of the
certification of the amount to be paid to the District and the
Tax Compliance and Administration Fund, the Comptroller shall
cause an order to be drawn for payment for the amount in
accordance with the direction in the certification.

Section 20-35. The Regional Transportation Authority Act
is amended by changing Section 4.03 as follows:
(70 ILCS 3615/4.03) (from Ch. 111 2/3, par. 704.03)
Sec. 4.03. Taxes.
(a) In order to carry out any of the powers or purposes of
the Authority, the Board may by ordinance adopted with the
concurrence of 12 of the then Directors, impose throughout the
metropolitan region any or all of the taxes provided in this
Section. Except as otherwise provided in this Act, taxes
imposed under this Section and civil penalties imposed incident
thereto shall be collected and enforced by the State Department
of Revenue. The Department shall have the power to administer
and enforce the taxes and to determine all rights for refunds
for erroneous payments of the taxes. Nothing in Public Act
95-708 is intended to invalidate any taxes currently imposed by
the Authority. The increased vote requirements to impose a tax
shall only apply to actions taken after January 1, 2008 (the
effective date of Public Act 95-708).
(b) The Board may impose a public transportation tax upon
all persons engaged in the metropolitan region in the business
of selling at retail motor fuel for operation of motor vehicles
upon public highways. The tax shall be at a rate not to exceed
5% of the gross receipts from the sales of motor fuel in the
course of the business. As used in this Act, the term "motor
fuel" shall have the same meaning as in the Motor Fuel Tax Law.
The Board may provide for details of the tax. The provisions of
any tax shall conform, as closely as may be practicable, to the
provisions of the Municipal Retailers Occupation Tax Act,
including without limitation, conformity to penalties with
respect to the tax imposed and as to the powers of the State
Department of Revenue to promulgate and enforce rules and
regulations relating to the administration and enforcement of
the provisions of the tax imposed, except that reference in the
Act to any municipality shall refer to the Authority and the
tax shall be imposed only with regard to receipts from sales of
motor fuel in the metropolitan region, at rates as limited by
this Section.
(c) In connection with the tax imposed under paragraph (b)
of this Section the Board may impose a tax upon the privilege
of using in the metropolitan region motor fuel for the
operation of a motor vehicle upon public highways, the tax to
be at a rate not in excess of the rate of tax imposed under
paragraph (b) of this Section. The Board may provide for
details of the tax.
(d) The Board may impose a motor vehicle parking tax upon
the privilege of parking motor vehicles at off-street parking
facilities in the metropolitan region at which a fee is
charged, and may provide for reasonable classifications in and
exemptions to the tax, for administration and enforcement
thereof and for civil penalties and refunds thereunder and may
provide criminal penalties thereunder, the maximum penalties
not to exceed the maximum criminal penalties provided in the
Retailers' Occupation Tax Act. The Authority may collect and
enforce the tax itself or by contract with any unit of local
government. The State Department of Revenue shall have no
responsibility for the collection and enforcement unless the
Department agrees with the Authority to undertake the
collection and enforcement. As used in this paragraph, the term
"parking facility" means a parking area or structure having
parking spaces for more than 2 vehicles at which motor vehicles
are permitted to park in return for an hourly, daily, or other
periodic fee, whether publicly or privately owned, but does not
include parking spaces on a public street, the use of which is
regulated by parking meters.
(e) The Board may impose a Regional Transportation
Authority Retailers' Occupation Tax upon all persons engaged in
the business of selling tangible personal property at retail in
the metropolitan region. In Cook County the tax rate shall be
1.25% of the gross receipts from sales of food for human
consumption that is to be consumed off the premises where it is
sold (other than alcoholic beverages, soft drinks and food that
has been prepared for immediate consumption) and prescription
and nonprescription medicines, drugs, medical appliances and
insulin, urine testing materials, syringes and needles used by
diabetics, and 1% of the gross receipts from other taxable
sales made in the course of that business. In DuPage, Kane,
Lake, McHenry, and Will Counties, the tax rate shall be 0.75%
of the gross receipts from all taxable sales made in the course
of that business. The tax imposed under this Section and all
civil penalties that may be assessed as an incident thereof
shall be collected and enforced by the State Department of
Revenue. The Department shall have full power to administer and
enforce this Section; to collect all taxes and penalties so
collected in the manner hereinafter provided; and to determine
all rights to credit memoranda arising on account of the
erroneous payment of tax or penalty hereunder. In the
administration of, and compliance with this Section, the
Department and persons who are subject to this Section shall
have the same rights, remedies, privileges, immunities, powers
and duties, and be subject to the same conditions,
restrictions, limitations, penalties, exclusions, exemptions
and definitions of terms, and employ the same modes of
procedure, as are prescribed in Sections 1, 1a, 1a-1, 1c, 1d,
1e, 1f, 1i, 1j, 2 through 2-65 (in respect to all provisions
therein other than the State rate of tax), 2c, 3 (except as to
the disposition of taxes and penalties collected), 4, 5, 5a,
5b, 5c, 5d, 5e, 5f, 5g, 5h, 5i, 5j, 5k, 5l, 6, 6a, 6b, 6c, 6d,
7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 of the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act
and Section 3-7 of the Uniform Penalty and Interest Act, as
fully as if those provisions were set forth herein.
Persons subject to any tax imposed under the authority
granted in this Section may reimburse themselves for their
seller's tax liability hereunder by separately stating the tax
as an additional charge, which charge may be stated in
combination in a single amount with State taxes that sellers
are required to collect under the Use Tax Act, under any
bracket schedules the Department may prescribe.
Whenever the Department determines that a refund should be
made under this Section to a claimant instead of issuing a
credit memorandum, the Department shall notify the State
Comptroller, who shall cause the warrant to be drawn for the
amount specified, and to the person named, in the notification
from the Department. The refund shall be paid by the State
Treasurer out of the Regional Transportation Authority tax fund
established under paragraph (n) of this Section.
If a tax is imposed under this subsection (e), a tax shall
also be imposed under subsections (f) and (g) of this Section.
For the purpose of determining whether a tax authorized
under this Section is applicable, a retail sale by a producer
of coal or other mineral mined in Illinois, is a sale at retail
at the place where the coal or other mineral mined in Illinois
is extracted from the earth. This paragraph does not apply to
coal or other mineral when it is delivered or shipped by the
seller to the purchaser at a point outside Illinois so that the
sale is exempt under the Federal Constitution as a sale in
interstate or foreign commerce.
No tax shall be imposed or collected under this subsection
on the sale of a motor vehicle in this State to a resident of
another state if that motor vehicle will not be titled in this
State.
Nothing in this Section shall be construed to authorize the
Regional Transportation Authority to impose a tax upon the
privilege of engaging in any business that under the
Constitution of the United States may not be made the subject
of taxation by this State.
(f) If a tax has been imposed under paragraph (e), a
Regional Transportation Authority Service Occupation Tax shall
also be imposed upon all persons engaged, in the metropolitan
region in the business of making sales of service, who as an
incident to making the sales of service, transfer tangible
personal property within the metropolitan region, either in the
form of tangible personal property or in the form of real
estate as an incident to a sale of service. In Cook County, the
tax rate shall be: (1) 1.25% of the serviceman's cost price of
food prepared for immediate consumption and transferred
incident to a sale of service subject to the service occupation
tax by an entity licensed under the Hospital Licensing Act, the
Nursing Home Care Act, the Specialized Mental Health
Rehabilitation Act of 2013, the ID/DD Community Care Act, or
the MC/DD Act that is located in the metropolitan region; (2)
1.25% of the selling price of food for human consumption that
is to be consumed off the premises where it is sold (other than
alcoholic beverages, soft drinks and food that has been
prepared for immediate consumption) and prescription and
nonprescription medicines, drugs, medical appliances and
insulin, urine testing materials, syringes and needles used by
diabetics; and (3) 1% of the selling price from other taxable
sales of tangible personal property transferred. In DuPage,
Kane, Lake, McHenry and Will Counties the rate shall be 0.75%
of the selling price of all tangible personal property
transferred.
The tax imposed under this paragraph and all civil
penalties that may be assessed as an incident thereof shall be
collected and enforced by the State Department of Revenue. The
Department shall have full power to administer and enforce this
paragraph; to collect all taxes and penalties due hereunder; to
dispose of taxes and penalties collected in the manner
hereinafter provided; and to determine all rights to credit
memoranda arising on account of the erroneous payment of tax or
penalty hereunder. In the administration of and compliance with
this paragraph, the Department and persons who are subject to
this paragraph shall have the same rights, remedies,
privileges, immunities, powers and duties, and be subject to
the same conditions, restrictions, limitations, penalties,
exclusions, exemptions and definitions of terms, and employ the
same modes of procedure, as are prescribed in Sections 1a-1, 2,
2a, 3 through 3-50 (in respect to all provisions therein other
than the State rate of tax), 4 (except that the reference to
the State shall be to the Authority), 5, 7, 8 (except that the
jurisdiction to which the tax shall be a debt to the extent
indicated in that Section 8 shall be the Authority), 9 (except
as to the disposition of taxes and penalties collected, and
except that the returned merchandise credit for this tax may
not be taken against any State tax), 10, 11, 12 (except the
reference therein to Section 2b of the Retailers' Occupation
Tax Act), 13 (except that any reference to the State shall mean
the Authority), the first paragraph of Section 15, 16, 17, 18,
19 and 20 of the Service Occupation Tax Act and Section 3-7 of
the Uniform Penalty and Interest Act, as fully as if those
provisions were set forth herein.
Persons subject to any tax imposed under the authority
granted in this paragraph may reimburse themselves for their
serviceman's tax liability hereunder by separately stating the
tax as an additional charge, that charge may be stated in
combination in a single amount with State tax that servicemen
are authorized to collect under the Service Use Tax Act, under
any bracket schedules the Department may prescribe.
Whenever the Department determines that a refund should be
made under this paragraph to a claimant instead of issuing a
credit memorandum, the Department shall notify the State
Comptroller, who shall cause the warrant to be drawn for the
amount specified, and to the person named in the notification
from the Department. The refund shall be paid by the State
Treasurer out of the Regional Transportation Authority tax fund
established under paragraph (n) of this Section.
Nothing in this paragraph shall be construed to authorize
the Authority to impose a tax upon the privilege of engaging in
any business that under the Constitution of the United States
may not be made the subject of taxation by the State.
(g) If a tax has been imposed under paragraph (e), a tax
shall also be imposed upon the privilege of using in the
metropolitan region, any item of tangible personal property
that is purchased outside the metropolitan region at retail
from a retailer, and that is titled or registered with an
agency of this State's government. In Cook County the tax rate
shall be 1% of the selling price of the tangible personal
property, as "selling price" is defined in the Use Tax Act. In
DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry and Will counties the tax rate
shall be 0.75% of the selling price of the tangible personal
property, as "selling price" is defined in the Use Tax Act. The
tax shall be collected from persons whose Illinois address for
titling or registration purposes is given as being in the
metropolitan region. The tax shall be collected by the
Department of Revenue for the Regional Transportation
Authority. The tax must be paid to the State, or an exemption
determination must be obtained from the Department of Revenue,
before the title or certificate of registration for the
property may be issued. The tax or proof of exemption may be
transmitted to the Department by way of the State agency with
which, or the State officer with whom, the tangible personal
property must be titled or registered if the Department and the
State agency or State officer determine that this procedure
will expedite the processing of applications for title or
registration.
The Department shall have full power to administer and
enforce this paragraph; to collect all taxes, penalties and
interest due hereunder; to dispose of taxes, penalties and
interest collected in the manner hereinafter provided; and to
determine all rights to credit memoranda or refunds arising on
account of the erroneous payment of tax, penalty or interest
hereunder. In the administration of and compliance with this
paragraph, the Department and persons who are subject to this
paragraph shall have the same rights, remedies, privileges,
immunities, powers and duties, and be subject to the same
conditions, restrictions, limitations, penalties, exclusions,
exemptions and definitions of terms and employ the same modes
of procedure, as are prescribed in Sections 2 (except the
definition of "retailer maintaining a place of business in this
State"), 3 through 3-80 (except provisions pertaining to the
State rate of tax, and except provisions concerning collection
or refunding of the tax by retailers), 4, 11, 12, 12a, 14, 15,
19 (except the portions pertaining to claims by retailers and
except the last paragraph concerning refunds), 20, 21 and 22 of
the Use Tax Act, and are not inconsistent with this paragraph,
as fully as if those provisions were set forth herein.
Whenever the Department determines that a refund should be
made under this paragraph to a claimant instead of issuing a
credit memorandum, the Department shall notify the State
Comptroller, who shall cause the order to be drawn for the
amount specified, and to the person named in the notification
from the Department. The refund shall be paid by the State
Treasurer out of the Regional Transportation Authority tax fund
established under paragraph (n) of this Section.
(h) The Authority may impose a replacement vehicle tax of
$50 on any passenger car as defined in Section 1-157 of the
Illinois Vehicle Code purchased within the metropolitan region
by or on behalf of an insurance company to replace a passenger
car of an insured person in settlement of a total loss claim.
The tax imposed may not become effective before the first day
of the month following the passage of the ordinance imposing

the tax for the Authority in accordance with Sections 3-2002
and 3-2003 of the Illinois Vehicle Code.

Treasurer, ex officio, as trustee, all taxes collected
hereunder.

beginning January 1, 2011, upon certification of the Department
of Revenue, the Comptroller shall order transferred, and the
Treasurer shall transfer, to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund the
local sales tax increment, as defined in the Innovation
Development and Economy Act, collected under this Section
during the second preceding calendar month for sales within a
STAR bond district.
After the monthly transfer to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund,
on or before the 25th day of each calendar month, the
Department shall prepare and certify to the Comptroller the
disbursement of stated sums of money to the Authority. The
amount to be paid to the Authority shall be the amount
collected hereunder during the second preceding calendar month
by the Department, less any amount determined by the Department
to be necessary for the payment of refunds, and less any
amounts that are transferred to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund.
Within 10 days after receipt by the Comptroller of the
disbursement certification to the Authority provided for in
this Section to be given to the Comptroller by the Department,
the Comptroller shall cause the orders to be drawn for that
amount in accordance with the directions contained in the
certification.
(i) The Board may not impose any other taxes except as it
may from time to time be authorized by law to impose.
(j) A certificate of registration issued by the State

required under the tax. A certificate issued under the Use Tax
Act or the Service Use Tax Act shall be applicable with regard
to any tax imposed under paragraph (c) of this Section.
(k) The provisions of any tax imposed under paragraph (c)
of this Section shall conform as closely as may be practicable
to the provisions of the Use Tax Act, including without
limitation conformity as to penalties with respect to the tax

to promulgate and enforce rules and regulations relating to the
administration and enforcement of the provisions of the tax
imposed. The taxes shall be imposed only on use within the
metropolitan region and at rates as provided in the paragraph.
(l) The Board in imposing any tax as provided in paragraphs
(b) and (c) of this Section, shall, after seeking the advice of
the State Department of Revenue, provide means for retailers,
users or purchasers of motor fuel for purposes other than those
with regard to which the taxes may be imposed as provided in
those paragraphs to receive refunds of taxes improperly paid,
which provisions may be at variance with the refund provisions
as applicable under the Municipal Retailers Occupation Tax Act.
The State Department of Revenue may provide for certificates of
registration for users or purchasers of motor fuel for purposes
other than those with regard to which taxes may be imposed as
provided in paragraphs (b) and (c) of this Section to
facilitate the reporting and nontaxability of the exempt sales
or uses.
(m) Any ordinance imposing or discontinuing any tax under
this Section shall be adopted and a certified copy thereof
filed with the Department on or before June 1, whereupon the
Department of Revenue shall proceed to administer and enforce
this Section on behalf of the Regional Transportation Authority
as of September 1 next following such adoption and filing.
Beginning January 1, 1992, an ordinance or resolution imposing
or discontinuing the tax hereunder shall be adopted and a

August 1, 2007 shall remain in full force and effect and shall
be administered by the Department of Revenue under the terms
and conditions and rates of tax established by such ordinance
or resolution until the Department begins administering and
enforcing an increased tax under this Section as authorized by
Public Act 95-708. The tax rates authorized by Public Act
95-708 are effective only if imposed by ordinance of the
Authority.
(n) Except as otherwise provided in this subsection (n),
the State Department of Revenue shall, upon collecting any
taxes as provided in this Section, pay the taxes over to the
State Treasurer as trustee for the Authority. The taxes shall
be held in a trust fund outside the State Treasury. On or
before the 25th day of each calendar month, the State
Department of Revenue shall prepare and certify to the
Comptroller of the State of Illinois and to the Authority (i)
the amount of taxes collected in each County other than Cook
County in the metropolitan region, (ii) the amount of taxes
collected within the City of Chicago, and (iii) the amount
collected in that portion of Cook County outside of Chicago,
each amount less the amount necessary for the payment of
refunds to taxpayers located in those areas described in items

transferred into the Tax Compliance and Administration Fund
under this subsection. Within 10 days after receipt by the

subsection to the Authority.
In addition to the disbursement required by the preceding
paragraph, an allocation shall be made in July 1991 and each
year thereafter to the Regional Transportation Authority. The
allocation shall be made in an amount equal to the average
monthly distribution during the preceding calendar year
(excluding the 2 months of lowest receipts) and the allocation
shall include the amount of average monthly distribution from
the Regional Transportation Authority Occupation and Use Tax
Replacement Fund. The distribution made in July 1992 and each
year thereafter under this paragraph and the preceding
paragraph shall be reduced by the amount allocated and
disbursed under this paragraph in the preceding calendar year.
The Department of Revenue shall prepare and certify to the
Comptroller for disbursement the allocations made in
accordance with this paragraph.
(o) Failure to adopt a budget ordinance or otherwise to
comply with Section 4.01 of this Act or to adopt a Five-year
Capital Program or otherwise to comply with paragraph (b) of
Section 2.01 of this Act shall not affect the validity of any
tax imposed by the Authority otherwise in conformity with law.
(p) At no time shall a public transportation tax or motor
vehicle parking tax authorized under paragraphs (b), (c) and

authorized under paragraphs (e), (f) and (g) of this Section is
in effect.
Any taxes imposed under the authority provided in
paragraphs (b), (c) and (d) shall remain in effect only until

(f) or (g) of this Section becomes ineffective by means other
than an ordinance of the Board.
(q) Any existing rights, remedies and obligations
(including enforcement by the Regional Transportation
Authority) arising under any tax imposed under paragraphs (b),
(c) or (d) of this Section shall not be affected by the
imposition of a tax under paragraphs (e), (f) or (g) of this
Section.

election officials, who shall submit the proposition to the
voters residing in the territory at an election in accordance
with the general election law, and the proposition has been
approved by a majority of those voting on the proposition.
The proposition shall be in the form provided in Section 5
or shall be substantially in the following form:
-------------------------------------------------------------
Shall the (insert corporate
name of county water commission) YES
impose (state type of tax or ------------------------
taxes to be imposed) at the NO

For the purpose of determining whether a tax authorized
under this paragraph is applicable, a retail sale by a producer

collected from persons whose Illinois address for titling or
registration purposes is given as being in the territory. The
tax shall be collected by the Department of Revenue for a
county water commission. The tax must be paid to the State, or
an exemption determination must be obtained from the Department
of Revenue, before the title or certificate of registration for
the property may be issued. The tax or proof of exemption may
be transmitted to the Department by way of the State agency

(e) A certificate of registration issued by the State
Department of Revenue to a retailer under the Retailers'
Occupation Tax Act or under the Service Occupation Tax Act
shall permit the registrant to engage in a business that is

re-transferred from general funds and the Health Insurance
Reserve Fund to those special funds of the State.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section, no such
transfer may be made from any special fund that is exclusively
collected by or directly appropriated to any other
constitutional officer without the written approval of that
constitutional officer.
(b) If moneys have been transferred to general funds and
the Health Insurance Reserve Fund pursuant to subsection (a) of
this Section, this amendatory Act of the 100th General Assembly
shall constitute the continuing authority for and direction to
the State Treasurer and State Comptroller to reimburse the
funds of origin from general funds by transferring to the funds
of origin, at such times and in such amounts as directed by the
Comptroller when necessary to support appropriated
expenditures from the funds, an amount equal to that
transferred from them plus any interest that would have accrued
thereon had the transfer not occurred, except that any moneys
transferred pursuant to subsection (a) of this Section shall be
repaid to the fund of origin within 24 months after the date on
which they were borrowed. When any of the funds from which
moneys have been transferred pursuant to subsection (a) have
insufficient cash from which the State Comptroller may make
expenditures properly supported by appropriations from the
fund, then the State Treasurer and State Comptroller shall
transfer from general funds to the fund only such amount as is
immediately necessary to satisfy outstanding expenditure
obligations on a timely basis.
(c) On the first day of each quarterly period in each
fiscal year, until such time as a report indicates that all
moneys borrowed and interest pursuant to this Section have been
repaid, the Comptroller shall provide to the President and the
Minority Leader of the Senate, the Speaker and the Minority
Leader of the House of Representatives, and the Commission on
Government Forecasting and Accountability a report on all
transfers made pursuant to this Section in the prior quarterly
period. The report must be provided in electronic format. The
report must include all of the following:
(1) the date each transfer was made;
(2) the amount of each transfer;
(3) in the case of a transfer from general funds to a
fund of origin pursuant to subsection (b) of this Section,
the amount of interest being paid to the fund of origin;
and
(4) the end of day balance of the fund of origin, the
general funds, and the Health Insurance Reserve Fund on the

ARTICLE 45. HIGHER EDUCATION
Section 45-1. Legislative intent. It is the intent of this
Article to increase enrollment at public 4-year universities in
this State by providing those universities with the option for
additional funding through a new, merit-based and means-tested
matching scholarship for Illinois students. It is also the
intent of this Article that any public university participating
in this program should, in its best efforts, attempt to
delegate scholarship funds among a racially diverse range of
students and not use a student's race, color, religion, sex
(including gender identity, sexual orientation, or pregnancy),
national origin, age, disability, or genetic information to
disqualify him or her from receiving funds under the program.
Section 45-5. The Higher Education Student Assistance Act
is amended by changing Section 10 and adding Section 65.100 as
follows:
(110 ILCS 947/10)
Sec. 10. Definitions. In this Act, and except to the extent
that any of the following words or phrases is specifically
qualified by its context:
"Commission" means the Illinois Student Assistance
Commission created by this Act.
"Enrollment" means the establishment and maintenance of an
individual's status as a student in an institution of higher
learning, regardless of the terms used at the institution to
describe that status.
"Approved high school" means any public high school located
in this State; and any high school, located in this State or
elsewhere (whether designated as a high school, secondary
school, academy, preparatory school, or otherwise) which in the
judgment of the State Superintendent of Education provides a
course of instruction at the secondary level and maintains
standards of instruction substantially equivalent to those of
the public high schools located in this State.
"Institution of higher learning", "qualified institution",
or "institution" means an educational organization located in
this State which
(1) provides at least an organized 2 year program of
collegiate grade in the liberal arts or sciences, or both,
directly applicable toward the attainment of a
baccalaureate degree or a program in health education
directly applicable toward the attainment of a
certificate, diploma, or an associate degree;
(2) either is
(A) operated by this State, or
(B) operated publicly or privately, not for
profit, or
(C) operated for profit, provided such for profit
organization
(i) offers degree programs which have been
approved by the Board of Higher Education for a
minimum of 3 years under the Academic Degree Act,
and
(ii) enrolls a majority of its students in such
degree programs, and
(iii) maintains an accredited status with the
Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of
the North Central Association of Colleges and
Schools;
(3) in the judgment of the Commission meets standards
substantially equivalent to those of comparable
institutions operated by this State; and
(4) if so required by the Commission, uses the State as
its primary guarantor of student loans made under the
federal Higher Education Act of 1965.
For otherwise eligible educational organizations which provide
academic programs for incarcerated students, the terms
"institution of higher learning", "qualified institutions",
and "institution" shall specifically exclude academic programs
for incarcerated students.
"Academic Year" means a 12 month period of time, normally
but not exclusively, from September 1 of any year through
August 31 of the ensuing year.

enrolled in 12 or more semester or quarter hours of credit
courses in any given semester or quarter or in the equivalent
number of units of registration as determined by the
Commission.
"Part-time student" means any undergraduate student, other
than a full-time student, enrolled in 6 or more semester or
quarter hours of credit courses in any given semester or
quarter or in the equivalent number of units of registration as
determined by the Commission. Beginning with fiscal year 1999,
the Commission may, on a program by program basis, expand this
definition of "part-time student" to include students who
enroll in less than 6 semester or quarter hours of credit
courses in any given semester or quarter.
"Public university" means any public 4-year university in
this State.

(110 ILCS 947/65.100 new)
Sec. 65.100. AIM HIGH Grant Pilot Program.
(a) The General Assembly makes all of the following
findings:
(1) Both access and affordability are important
aspects of the Illinois Public Agenda for College and
Career Success report.
(2) This State is in the top quartile with respect to
the percentage of family income needed to pay for college.
(3) Research suggests that as loan amounts increase,
rather than an increase in grant amounts, the probability
of college attendance decreases.
(4) There is further research indicating that
socioeconomic status may affect the willingness of
students to use loans to attend college.
(5) Strategic use of tuition discounting can decrease
the amount of loans that students must use to pay for
tuition.
(6) A modest, individually tailored tuition discount
can make the difference in a student choosing to attend
college and enhance college access for low-income and
middle-income families.
(7) Even if the federally calculated financial need for
college attendance is met, the federally determined
Expected Family Contribution can still be a daunting
amount.
(8) This State is the second largest exporter of
students in the country.
(9) When talented Illinois students attend
universities in this State, the State and those
universities benefit.
(10) State universities in other states have adopted
pricing and incentives that allow many Illinois residents
to pay less to attend an out-of-state university than to
remain in this State for college.
(11) Supporting Illinois student attendance at
Illinois public universities can assist in State efforts to
maintain and educate a highly trained workforce.
(12) Modest tuition discounts that are individually
targeted and tailored can result in enhanced revenue for
public universities.
(13) By increasing a public university's capacity to
strategically use tuition discounting, the public
university will be capable of creating enhanced tuition
revenue by increasing enrollment yields.
(b) In this Section:
"Eligible applicant" means a student from any high school
in this State, whether or not recognized by the State Board of
Education, who is engaged in a program of study that will be
completed by the end of the school year and who meets all of
the qualifications and requirements under this Section.
"Tuition and other necessary fees" includes the customary
charge for instruction and use of facilities in general and the
additional fixed fees charged for specified purposes that are
required generally of non-grant recipients for each academic
period for which the grant applicant actually enrolls, but does
not include fees payable only once or breakage fees and other
contingent deposits that are refundable in whole or in part.
The Commission may adopt, by rule not inconsistent with this
Section, detailed provisions concerning the computation of
tuition and other necessary fees.
(c) Beginning with the 2019-2020 academic year, each public
university may establish a merit-based scholarship pilot
program known as the AIM HIGH Grant Pilot Program. Each year,
the Commission shall receive and consider applications from
public universities under this Section. Subject to
appropriation and any tuition waiver limitation established by
the Board of Higher Education, a public university campus may
award a grant to a student under this Section if it finds that
the applicant meets all of the following criteria:
(1) He or she is a resident of this State and a citizen
or eligible noncitizen of the United States.
(2) He or she files a Free Application for Federal
Student Aid and demonstrates financial need with a
household income no greater than 6 times the poverty
guidelines updated periodically in the Federal Register by
the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services under the
authority of 42 U.S.C. 9902(2).
(3) He or she meets the minimum cumulative grade point
average or ACT or SAT college admissions test score, as
determined by the public university campus.
(4) He or she is enrolled in a public university as an
undergraduate student on a full-time basis.
(5) He or she has not yet received a baccalaureate
degree or the equivalent of 135 semester credit hours.
(6) He or she is not incarcerated.
(7) He or she is not in default on any student loan or
does not owe a refund or repayment on any State or federal
grant or scholarship.
(8) Any other reasonable criteria, as determined by the
public university campus.
(d) Each public university campus shall determine grant
renewal criteria consistent with the requirements under this
Section.
(e) Each participating public university campus shall post
on its Internet website criteria and eligibility requirements
for receiving awards that use funds under this Section that
include a range in the sizes of these individual awards. The
criteria and amounts must also be reported to the Commission
and the Board of Higher Education, who shall post the
information on their respective Internet websites.
(f) After enactment of an appropriation for this Program,
the Commission shall determine an allocation of funds to each
public university in an amount proportionate to the number of
undergraduate students who are residents of this State and
citizens or eligible noncitizens of the United States and who
were enrolled at each public university campus in the previous
academic year. All applications must be made to the Commission
on or before a date determined by the Commission and on forms
that the Commission shall provide to each public university
campus. The form of the application and the information
required shall be determined by the Commission and shall
include, without limitation, the total public university
campus funds used to match funds received from the Commission
in the previous academic year under this Section, if any, the
total enrollment of undergraduate students who are residents of
this State from the previous academic year, and any supporting
documents as the Commission deems necessary. Each public
university campus shall match the amount of funds received by
the Commission with financial aid for eligible students.
A public university campus is not required to claim its
entire allocation. The Commission shall make available to all
public universities, on a date determined by the Commission,
any unclaimed funds and the funds must be made available to
those public university campuses in the proportion determined
under this subsection (f), excluding from the calculation those
public university campuses not claiming their full
allocations.
Each public university campus may determine the award
amounts for eligible students on an individual or broad basis,
but, subject to renewal eligibility, each renewed award may not
be less than the amount awarded to the eligible student in his
or her first year attending the public university campus.
Notwithstanding this limitation, a renewal grant may be reduced
due to changes in the student's cost of attendance, including,
but not limited to, if a student reduces the number of credit
hours in which he or she is enrolled, but remains a full-time
student, or switches to a course of study with a lower tuition
rate.
An eligible applicant awarded grant assistance under this
Section is eligible to receive other financial aid. Total grant
aid to the student from all sources may not exceed the total
cost of attendance at the public university campus.
(g) All money allocated to a public university campus under
this Section may be used only for financial aid purposes for
students attending the public university campus during the
academic year, not including summer terms. Any funds received
by a public university campus under this Section that are not
granted to students in the academic year for which the funds
are received must be refunded to the Commission before any new
funds are received by the public university campus for the next
academic year.
(h) Each public university campus that establishes a
Program under this Section must annually report to the
Commission, on or before a date determined by the Commission,
the number of undergraduate students enrolled at that campus
who are residents of this State.
(i) Each public university campus must report to the
Commission the total non-loan financial aid amount given by the
public university campus to undergraduate students in fiscal
year 2018. To be eligible to receive funds under the Program, a
public university campus may not decrease the total amount of
non-loan financial aid for undergraduate students to an amount
lower than the total non-loan financial aid amount given by the
public university campus to undergraduate students in fiscal
year 2018, not including any funds received from the Commission
under this Section or any funds used to match grant awards
under this Section.
(j) On or before a date determined by the Commission, each
public university campus that participates in the Program under
this Section shall annually submit a report to the Commission
with all of the following information:
(1) The Program's impact on tuition revenue and
enrollment goals and increase in access and affordability
at the public university campus.
(2) Total funds received by the public university
campus under the Program.
(3) Total non-loan financial aid awarded to
undergraduate students attending the public university
campus.
(4) Total amount of funds matched by the public
university campus.
(5) Total amount of funds refunded to the Commission by
the public university campus.
(6) The percentage of total financial aid distributed
under the Program by the public university campus.
(7) The total number of students receiving grants from
the public university campus under the Program and those
students' grade level, race, gender, income level, family
size, Monetary Award Program eligibility, Pell Grant
eligibility, and zip code of residence and the amount of
each grant award. This information shall include unit
record data on those students regarding variables
associated with the parameters of the public university's
Program, including, but not limited to, a student's ACT or
SAT college admissions test score, high school or
university cumulative grade point average, or program of
study.
On or before October 1, 2020 and annually on or before
October 1 thereafter, the Commission shall submit a report with
the findings under this subsection (j) and any other
information regarding the AIM HIGH Grant Pilot Program to (i)
the Governor, (ii) the Speaker of the House of Representatives,
(iii) the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, (iv)
the President of the Senate, and (v) the Minority Leader of the
Senate. The reports to the General Assembly shall be filed with
the Clerk of the House of Representatives and the Secretary of
the Senate in electronic form only, in the manner that the
Clerk and the Secretary shall direct. The Commission's report
may not disaggregate data to a level that may disclose
personally identifying information of individual students.
The sharing and reporting of student data under this
subsection (j) must be in accordance with the requirements
under the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of
1974 and the Illinois School Student Records Act. All parties
must preserve the confidentiality of the information as
required by law. The names of the grant recipients under this
Section are not subject to disclosure under the Freedom of
Information Act.
Public university campuses that fail to submit a report
under this subsection (j) or that fail to adhere to any other
requirements under this Section may not be eligible for
distribution of funds under the Program for the next academic
year, but may be eligible for distribution of funds for each
academic year thereafter.
(k) The Commission shall adopt rules to implement this
Section.
(l) This Section is repealed on October 1, 2024.
