ARTICLE 90.
4 Section 90-1. Findings. The General Assembly makes all of
5the following findings:
6 (1) That the cumulative reduction to pre-K through 12
7 education funding since 2009 is approximately
8 $861,000,000.
9 (2) That general state aid to Illinois common schools
10 has been underfunded as a result of budget cuts, resulting
11 in pro-rated payments to school districts that are less
12 than the foundational level of $6,119 per pupil, which
13 represents the minimum each pupil needs to be educated.
14 (3) That a significant infusion of new revenue is
15 necessary in order to fully fund the foundation level and
16 to maintain and support education in Illinois.
17 (4) That the decline of the Illinois horse racing and
18 breeding program, a $2.5 billion industry, would be
19 reversed if this amendatory Act of the 100th General
20 Assembly would be enacted.
21 (5) That the Illinois horse racing industry is on the
22 verge of extinction due to fierce competition from fully
23 developed horse racing and gaming operations in other
24 states.

SB0007 Engrossed- 48 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 (6) That allowing the State's horse racing venues,
2 currently licensed gaming destinations, to maximize their
3 capacities with gaming machines, would generate up to $120
4 million to $200 million for the State in the form of extra
5 licensing fees, plus an additional $100 million to $300
6 million in recurring annual tax revenue for the State to
7 help ensure that school, road, and other building projects
8 promised under the capital plan occur on schedule.
9 (7) That Illinois agriculture and other businesses
10 that support and supply the horse racing industry, already
11 a sector that employs over 37,000 Illinoisans, also stand
12 to substantially benefit and would be much more likely to
13 create additional jobs should Illinois horse racing once
14 again become competitive with other states.
15 (8) That by keeping these projects on track, the State
16 can be sure that significant job and economic growth will
17 in fact result from the previously enacted legislation.
18 (9) That gaming machines at Illinois horse racing
19 tracks would create an estimated 1,200 to 1,500 permanent
20 jobs, and an estimated capital investment of up to $200
21 million to $400 million at these race tracks would prompt
22 additional trade organization jobs necessary to construct
23 new facilities or remodel race tracks to operate electronic
24 gaming.

15imposed by subsections (b) and (d) shall be reduced (but not
16increased) to the rate at which the total amount of tax imposed
17under this Act, net of all credits allowed under this Act,
18shall equal (i) the total amount of tax that would be imposed
19on the foreign insurer's net income allocable to Illinois for

3 (e) Investment credit. A taxpayer shall be allowed a credit
4against the Personal Property Tax Replacement Income Tax for
5investment in qualified property.
6 (1) A taxpayer shall be allowed a credit equal to .5%
7 of the basis of qualified property placed in service during
8 the taxable year, provided such property is placed in
9 service on or after July 1, 1984. There shall be allowed an
10 additional credit equal to .5% of the basis of qualified
11 property placed in service during the taxable year,
12 provided such property is placed in service on or after
13 July 1, 1986, and the taxpayer's base employment within
14 Illinois has increased by 1% or more over the preceding
15 year as determined by the taxpayer's employment records
16 filed with the Illinois Department of Employment Security.
17 Taxpayers who are new to Illinois shall be deemed to have
18 met the 1% growth in base employment for the first year in
19 which they file employment records with the Illinois
20 Department of Employment Security. The provisions added to
21 this Section by Public Act 85-1200 (and restored by Public
22 Act 87-895) shall be construed as declaratory of existing
23 law and not as a new enactment. If, in any year, the
24 increase in base employment within Illinois over the
25 preceding year is less than 1%, the additional credit shall
26 be limited to that percentage times a fraction, the

SB0007 Engrossed- 100 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 numerator of which is .5% and the denominator of which is
2 1%, but shall not exceed .5%. The investment credit shall
3 not be allowed to the extent that it would reduce a
4 taxpayer's liability in any tax year below zero, nor may
5 any credit for qualified property be allowed for any year
6 other than the year in which the property was placed in
7 service in Illinois. For tax years ending on or after
8 December 31, 1987, and on or before December 31, 1988, the
9 credit shall be allowed for the tax year in which the
10 property is placed in service, or, if the amount of the
11 credit exceeds the tax liability for that year, whether it
12 exceeds the original liability or the liability as later
13 amended, such excess may be carried forward and applied to
14 the tax liability of the 5 taxable years following the
15 excess credit years if the taxpayer (i) makes investments
16 which cause the creation of a minimum of 2,000 full-time
17 equivalent jobs in Illinois, (ii) is located in an
18 enterprise zone established pursuant to the Illinois
19 Enterprise Zone Act and (iii) is certified by the
20 Department of Commerce and Community Affairs (now
21 Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity) as
22 complying with the requirements specified in clause (i) and
23 (ii) by July 1, 1986. The Department of Commerce and
24 Community Affairs (now Department of Commerce and Economic
25 Opportunity) shall notify the Department of Revenue of all
26 such certifications immediately. For tax years ending

SB0007 Engrossed- 101 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 after December 31, 1988, the credit shall be allowed for
2 the tax year in which the property is placed in service,
3 or, if the amount of the credit exceeds the tax liability
4 for that year, whether it exceeds the original liability or
5 the liability as later amended, such excess may be carried
6 forward and applied to the tax liability of the 5 taxable
7 years following the excess credit years. The credit shall
8 be applied to the earliest year for which there is a
9 liability. If there is credit from more than one tax year
10 that is available to offset a liability, earlier credit
11 shall be applied first.
12 (2) The term "qualified property" means property
13 which:
14 (A) is tangible, whether new or used, including
15 buildings and structural components of buildings and
16 signs that are real property, but not including land or

18 component of a building such as landscaping, sewer
19 lines, local access roads, fencing, parking lots, and
20 other appurtenances;
21 (B) is depreciable pursuant to Section 167 of the
22 Internal Revenue Code, except that "3-year property"
23 as defined in Section 168(c)(2)(A) of that Code is not
24 eligible for the credit provided by this subsection
25 (e);
26 (C) is acquired by purchase as defined in Section

SB0007 Engrossed- 102 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 179(d) of the Internal Revenue Code;
2 (D) is used in Illinois by a taxpayer who is
3 primarily engaged in manufacturing, or in mining coal
4 or fluorite, or in retailing, or was placed in service
5 on or after July 1, 2006 in a River Edge Redevelopment
6 Zone established pursuant to the River Edge
7 Redevelopment Zone Act; and
8 (E) has not previously been used in Illinois in
9 such a manner and by such a person as would qualify for
10 the credit provided by this subsection (e) or
11 subsection (f).
12 (3) For purposes of this subsection (e),
13 "manufacturing" means the material staging and production
14 of tangible personal property by procedures commonly
15 regarded as manufacturing, processing, fabrication, or
16 assembling which changes some existing material into new
17 shapes, new qualities, or new combinations. For purposes of
18 this subsection (e) the term "mining" shall have the same
19 meaning as the term "mining" in Section 613(c) of the
20 Internal Revenue Code. For purposes of this subsection (e),
21 the term "retailing" means the sale of tangible personal
22 property for use or consumption and not for resale, or
23 services rendered in conjunction with the sale of tangible
24 personal property for use or consumption and not for
25 resale. For purposes of this subsection (e), "tangible
26 personal property" has the same meaning as when that term

SB0007 Engrossed- 103 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 is used in the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act, and, for
2 taxable years ending after December 31, 2008, does not
3 include the generation, transmission, or distribution of
4 electricity.
5 (4) The basis of qualified property shall be the basis
6 used to compute the depreciation deduction for federal
7 income tax purposes.
8 (5) If the basis of the property for federal income tax
9 depreciation purposes is increased after it has been placed
10 in service in Illinois by the taxpayer, the amount of such
11 increase shall be deemed property placed in service on the
12 date of such increase in basis.
13 (6) The term "placed in service" shall have the same
14 meaning as under Section 46 of the Internal Revenue Code.
15 (7) If during any taxable year, any property ceases to
16 be qualified property in the hands of the taxpayer within
17 48 months after being placed in service, or the situs of
18 any qualified property is moved outside Illinois within 48
19 months after being placed in service, the Personal Property
20 Tax Replacement Income Tax for such taxable year shall be
21 increased. Such increase shall be determined by (i)
22 recomputing the investment credit which would have been
23 allowed for the year in which credit for such property was
24 originally allowed by eliminating such property from such
25 computation and, (ii) subtracting such recomputed credit
26 from the amount of credit previously allowed. For the

SB0007 Engrossed- 104 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 purposes of this paragraph (7), a reduction of the basis of
2 qualified property resulting from a redetermination of the
3 purchase price shall be deemed a disposition of qualified
4 property to the extent of such reduction.
5 (8) Unless the investment credit is extended by law,
6 the basis of qualified property shall not include costs
7 incurred after December 31, 2018, except for costs incurred
8 pursuant to a binding contract entered into on or before
9 December 31, 2018.
10 (9) Each taxable year ending before December 31, 2000,
11 a partnership may elect to pass through to its partners the
12 credits to which the partnership is entitled under this
13 subsection (e) for the taxable year. A partner may use the
14 credit allocated to him or her under this paragraph only
15 against the tax imposed in subsections (c) and (d) of this
16 Section. If the partnership makes that election, those
17 credits shall be allocated among the partners in the
18 partnership in accordance with the rules set forth in
19 Section 704(b) of the Internal Revenue Code, and the rules
20 promulgated under that Section, and the allocated amount of
21 the credits shall be allowed to the partners for that
22 taxable year. The partnership shall make this election on
23 its Personal Property Tax Replacement Income Tax return for
24 that taxable year. The election to pass through the credits
25 shall be irrevocable.
26 For taxable years ending on or after December 31, 2000,

1 a partner that qualifies its partnership for a subtraction
2 under subparagraph (I) of paragraph (2) of subsection (d)
3 of Section 203 or a shareholder that qualifies a Subchapter
4 S corporation for a subtraction under subparagraph (S) of
5 paragraph (2) of subsection (b) of Section 203 shall be
6 allowed a credit under this subsection (e) equal to its
7 share of the credit earned under this subsection (e) during
8 the taxable year by the partnership or Subchapter S
9 corporation, determined in accordance with the
10 determination of income and distributive share of income
11 under Sections 702 and 704 and Subchapter S of the Internal

21 or after July 1, 2006, a River Edge Redevelopment Zone
22 established pursuant to the River Edge Redevelopment Zone
23 Act. For partners, shareholders of Subchapter S
24 corporations, and owners of limited liability companies,
25 if the liability company is treated as a partnership for
26 purposes of federal and State income taxation, there shall

SB0007 Engrossed- 106 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 be allowed a credit under this subsection (f) to be
2 determined in accordance with the determination of income
3 and distributive share of income under Sections 702 and 704
4 and Subchapter S of the Internal Revenue Code. The credit
5 shall be .5% of the basis for such property. The credit
6 shall be available only in the taxable year in which the
7 property is placed in service in the Enterprise Zone or
8 River Edge Redevelopment Zone and shall not be allowed to
9 the extent that it would reduce a taxpayer's liability for
10 the tax imposed by subsections (a) and (b) of this Section
11 to below zero. For tax years ending on or after December
12 31, 1985, the credit shall be allowed for the tax year in
13 which the property is placed in service, or, if the amount
14 of the credit exceeds the tax liability for that year,
15 whether it exceeds the original liability or the liability
16 as later amended, such excess may be carried forward and
17 applied to the tax liability of the 5 taxable years
18 following the excess credit year. The credit shall be
19 applied to the earliest year for which there is a

10 such a manner and by such a person as would qualify for
11 the credit provided by this subsection (f) or
12 subsection (e).
13 (3) The basis of qualified property shall be the basis
14 used to compute the depreciation deduction for federal
15 income tax purposes.
16 (4) If the basis of the property for federal income tax
17 depreciation purposes is increased after it has been placed
18 in service in the Enterprise Zone or River Edge
19 Redevelopment Zone by the taxpayer, the amount of such
20 increase shall be deemed property placed in service on the
21 date of such increase in basis.
22 (5) The term "placed in service" shall have the same
23 meaning as under Section 46 of the Internal Revenue Code.
24 (6) If during any taxable year, any property ceases to
25 be qualified property in the hands of the taxpayer within

2 or River Edge Redevelopment Zone within 48 months after
3 being placed in service, the tax imposed under subsections
4 (a) and (b) of this Section for such taxable year shall be
5 increased. Such increase shall be determined by (i)
6 recomputing the investment credit which would have been
7 allowed for the year in which credit for such property was
8 originally allowed by eliminating such property from such
9 computation, and (ii) subtracting such recomputed credit
10 from the amount of credit previously allowed. For the
11 purposes of this paragraph (6), a reduction of the basis of
12 qualified property resulting from a redetermination of the
13 purchase price shall be deemed a disposition of qualified
14 property to the extent of such reduction.
15 (7) There shall be allowed an additional credit equal
16 to 0.5% of the basis of qualified property placed in
17 service during the taxable year in a River Edge

15 property. The credit shall not be available (i) until the
16 minimum investments in qualified property set forth in
17 subdivision (a)(3)(A) of Section 5.5 of the Illinois

5 Enterprise Zone Act shall be available only in the taxable
6 year in which the property is placed in service and shall
7 not be allowed to the extent that it would reduce a

15 may be carried forward and applied to the tax liability of
16 the 5 taxable years following the excess credit year. The
17 credit shall be applied to the earliest year for which
18 there is a liability. If there is credit from more than one
19 tax year that is available to offset a liability, the
20 credit accruing first in time shall be applied first.
21 Changes made in this subdivision (h)(1) by Public Act

23 reflect existing law.
24 (2) The term qualified property means property which:

1 months after being placed in service, the tax imposed under
2 subsections (a) and (b) of this Section for such taxable
3 year shall be increased. Such increase shall be determined
4 by (i) recomputing the investment credit which would have
5 been allowed for the year in which credit for such property
6 was originally allowed by eliminating such property from
7 such computation, and (ii) subtracting such recomputed
8 credit from the amount of credit previously allowed. For
9 the purposes of this paragraph (6), a reduction of the
10 basis of qualified property resulting from a
11 redetermination of the purchase price shall be deemed a
12 disposition of qualified property to the extent of such
13 reduction.
14 (7) Beginning with tax years ending after December 31,
15 1996, if a taxpayer qualifies for the credit under this
16 subsection (h) and thereby is granted a tax abatement and
17 the taxpayer relocates its entire facility in violation of

SB0007 Engrossed- 113 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1(b) of this Section for the tax imposed by subsections (c) and
2(d) of this Section. This credit shall be computed by
3multiplying the tax imposed by subsections (c) and (d) of this

9 on radio of any and all performances, events, or
10 productions, including but not limited to news,
11 sporting events, plays, stories, or other literary,
12 commercial, educational, or artistic works, either
13 live or through the use of an audio tape, disc, or any
14 other format or medium. Each episode in a series of
15 radio programming produced for radio broadcast shall
16 constitute a separate "radio programming"
17 notwithstanding that the series relates to the same
18 principal subject and is produced during one or more
19 tax periods.
20 (i) In the case of advertising revenue from
21 broadcasting, the customer is the advertiser and
22 the service is received in this State if the
23 commercial domicile of the advertiser is in this
24 State.
25 (ii) In the case where film or radio
26 programming is broadcast by a station, a network,

SB0007 Engrossed- 153 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 or a cable system for a fee or other remuneration
2 received from the recipient of the broadcast, the
3 portion of the service that is received in this
4 State is measured by the portion of the recipients
5 of the broadcast located in this State.
6 Accordingly, the fee or other remuneration for
7 such service that is included in the Illinois
8 numerator of the sales factor is the total of those
9 fees or other remuneration received from
10 recipients in Illinois. For purposes of this
11 paragraph, a taxpayer may determine the location
12 of the recipients of its broadcast using the
13 address of the recipient shown in its contracts
14 with the recipient or using the billing address of
15 the recipient in the taxpayer's records.
16 (iii) In the case where film or radio
17 programming is broadcast by a station, a network,
18 or a cable system for a fee or other remuneration
19 from the person providing the programming, the
20 portion of the broadcast service that is received
21 by such station, network, or cable system in this
22 State is measured by the portion of recipients of
23 the broadcast located in this State. Accordingly,
24 the amount of revenue related to such an
25 arrangement that is included in the Illinois
26 numerator of the sales factor is the total fee or

SB0007 Engrossed- 154 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 other total remuneration from the person providing
2 the programming related to that broadcast
3 multiplied by the Illinois audience factor for
4 that broadcast.
5 (iv) In the case where film or radio
6 programming is provided by a taxpayer that is a
7 network or station to a customer for broadcast in
8 exchange for a fee or other remuneration from that
9 customer the broadcasting service is received at
10 the location of the office of the customer from
11 which the services were ordered in the regular
12 course of the customer's trade or business.
13 Accordingly, in such a case the revenue derived by
14 the taxpayer that is included in the taxpayer's
15 Illinois numerator of the sales factor is the
16 revenue from such customers who receive the
17 broadcasting service in Illinois.
18 (v) In the case where film or radio programming
19 is provided by a taxpayer that is not a network or
20 station to another person for broadcasting in
21 exchange for a fee or other remuneration from that
22 person, the broadcasting service is received at
23 the location of the office of the customer from
24 which the services were ordered in the regular
25 course of the customer's trade or business.
26 Accordingly, in such a case the revenue derived by

SB0007 Engrossed- 155 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 the taxpayer that is included in the taxpayer's
2 Illinois numerator of the sales factor is the
3 revenue from such customers who receive the
4 broadcasting service in Illinois.
5 (B-8) Gross receipts from winnings under the Illinois
6 Lottery Law from the assignment of a prize under Section
7 13.1 of the Illinois Lottery Law are received in this
8 State. This paragraph (B-8) applies only to taxable years
9 ending on or after December 31, 2013.
10 (B-9) For taxable years ending on or after December 31,
11 2017, gross receipts from winnings from pari-mutuel
12 wagering conducted at a wagering facility licensed under
13 the Illinois Horse Racing Act of 1975 or from winnings from
14 gambling games conducted on a riverboat or in a casino or
15 electronic gaming facility licensed under the Illinois
16 Gambling Act are in this State.
17 (C) For taxable years ending before December 31, 2008,
18 sales, other than sales governed by paragraphs (B), (B-1),
19 (B-2), and (B-8) are in this State if:
20 (i) The income-producing activity is performed in
21 this State; or
22 (ii) The income-producing activity is performed
23 both within and without this State and a greater
24 proportion of the income-producing activity is
25 performed within this State than without this State,
26 based on performance costs.

SB0007 Engrossed- 156 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 (C-5) For taxable years ending on or after December 31,
2 2008, sales, other than sales governed by paragraphs (B),
3 (B-1), (B-2), (B-5), and (B-7), are in this State if any of
4 the following criteria are met:
5 (i) Sales from the sale or lease of real property
6 are in this State if the property is located in this
7 State.
8 (ii) Sales from the lease or rental of tangible
9 personal property are in this State if the property is
10 located in this State during the rental period. Sales
11 from the lease or rental of tangible personal property
12 that is characteristically moving property, including,
13 but not limited to, motor vehicles, rolling stock,
14 aircraft, vessels, or mobile equipment are in this
15 State to the extent that the property is used in this
16 State.
17 (iii) In the case of interest, net gains (but not
18 less than zero) and other items of income from
19 intangible personal property, the sale is in this State
20 if:
21 (a) in the case of a taxpayer who is a dealer
22 in the item of intangible personal property within
23 the meaning of Section 475 of the Internal Revenue
24 Code, the income or gain is received from a
25 customer in this State. For purposes of this
26 subparagraph, a customer is in this State if the

SB0007 Engrossed- 157 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 customer is an individual, trust or estate who is a
2 resident of this State and, for all other
3 customers, if the customer's commercial domicile
4 is in this State. Unless the dealer has actual
5 knowledge of the residence or commercial domicile
6 of a customer during a taxable year, the customer
7 shall be deemed to be a customer in this State if
8 the billing address of the customer, as shown in
9 the records of the dealer, is in this State; or
10 (b) in all other cases, if the
11 income-producing activity of the taxpayer is
12 performed in this State or, if the
13 income-producing activity of the taxpayer is
14 performed both within and without this State, if a
15 greater proportion of the income-producing
16 activity of the taxpayer is performed within this
17 State than in any other state, based on performance
18 costs.
19 (iv) Sales of services are in this State if the
20 services are received in this State. For the purposes
21 of this section, gross receipts from the performance of
22 services provided to a corporation, partnership, or
23 trust may only be attributed to a state where that
24 corporation, partnership, or trust has a fixed place of
25 business. If the state where the services are received
26 is not readily determinable or is a state where the

SB0007 Engrossed- 158 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 corporation, partnership, or trust receiving the
2 service does not have a fixed place of business, the
3 services shall be deemed to be received at the location
4 of the office of the customer from which the services
5 were ordered in the regular course of the customer's
6 trade or business. If the ordering office cannot be
7 determined, the services shall be deemed to be received
8 at the office of the customer to which the services are
9 billed. If the taxpayer is not taxable in the state in
10 which the services are received, the sale must be
11 excluded from both the numerator and the denominator of
12 the sales factor. The Department shall adopt rules
13 prescribing where specific types of service are
14 received, including, but not limited to, publishing,
15 and utility service.
16 (D) For taxable years ending on or after December 31,
17 1995, the following items of income shall not be included
18 in the numerator or denominator of the sales factor:
19 dividends; amounts included under Section 78 of the
20 Internal Revenue Code; and Subpart F income as defined in
21 Section 952 of the Internal Revenue Code. No inference
22 shall be drawn from the enactment of this paragraph (D) in
23 construing this Section for taxable years ending before
24 December 31, 1995.
25 (E) Paragraphs (B-1) and (B-2) shall apply to tax years
26 ending on or after December 31, 1999, provided that a

SB0007 Engrossed- 159 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 taxpayer may elect to apply the provisions of these
2 paragraphs to prior tax years. Such election shall be made
3 in the form and manner prescribed by the Department, shall
4 be irrevocable, and shall apply to all tax years; provided
5 that, if a taxpayer's Illinois income tax liability for any
6 tax year, as assessed under Section 903 prior to January 1,
7 1999, was computed in a manner contrary to the provisions
8 of paragraphs (B-1) or (B-2), no refund shall be payable to
9 the taxpayer for that tax year to the extent such refund is
10 the result of applying the provisions of paragraph (B-1) or
11 (B-2) retroactively. In the case of a unitary business
12 group, such election shall apply to all members of such
13 group for every tax year such group is in existence, but
14 shall not apply to any taxpayer for any period during which
15 that taxpayer is not a member of such group.
16 (b) Insurance companies.
17 (1) In general. Except as otherwise provided by
18 paragraph (2), business income of an insurance company for
19 a taxable year shall be apportioned to this State by
20 multiplying such income by a fraction, the numerator of
21 which is the direct premiums written for insurance upon
22 property or risk in this State, and the denominator of
23 which is the direct premiums written for insurance upon
24 property or risk everywhere. For purposes of this
25 subsection, the term "direct premiums written" means the
26 total amount of direct premiums written, assessments and

SB0007 Engrossed- 160 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 annuity considerations as reported for the taxable year on
2 the annual statement filed by the company with the Illinois
3 Director of Insurance in the form approved by the National
4 Convention of Insurance Commissioners or such other form as
5 may be prescribed in lieu thereof.
6 (2) Reinsurance. If the principal source of premiums
7 written by an insurance company consists of premiums for
8 reinsurance accepted by it, the business income of such
9 company shall be apportioned to this State by multiplying
10 such income by a fraction, the numerator of which is the
11 sum of (i) direct premiums written for insurance upon
12 property or risk in this State, plus (ii) premiums written
13 for reinsurance accepted in respect of property or risk in
14 this State, and the denominator of which is the sum of
15 (iii) direct premiums written for insurance upon property
16 or risk everywhere, plus (iv) premiums written for
17 reinsurance accepted in respect of property or risk
18 everywhere. For purposes of this paragraph, premiums
19 written for reinsurance accepted in respect of property or
20 risk in this State, whether or not otherwise determinable,
21 may, at the election of the company, be determined on the
22 basis of the proportion which premiums written for
23 reinsurance accepted from companies commercially domiciled
24 in Illinois bears to premiums written for reinsurance
25 accepted from all sources, or, alternatively, in the
26 proportion which the sum of the direct premiums written for

SB0007 Engrossed- 161 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 insurance upon property or risk in this State by each
2 ceding company from which reinsurance is accepted bears to
3 the sum of the total direct premiums written by each such
4 ceding company for the taxable year. The election made by a
5 company under this paragraph for its first taxable year
6 ending on or after December 31, 2011, shall be binding for
7 that company for that taxable year and for all subsequent
8 taxable years, and may be altered only with the written
9 permission of the Department, which shall not be
10 unreasonably withheld.
11 (c) Financial organizations.
12 (1) In general. For taxable years ending before
13 December 31, 2008, business income of a financial
14 organization shall be apportioned to this State by
15 multiplying such income by a fraction, the numerator of
16 which is its business income from sources within this
17 State, and the denominator of which is its business income
18 from all sources. For the purposes of this subsection, the
19 business income of a financial organization from sources
20 within this State is the sum of the amounts referred to in
21 subparagraphs (A) through (E) following, but excluding the
22 adjusted income of an international banking facility as
23 determined in paragraph (2):
24 (A) Fees, commissions or other compensation for
25 financial services rendered within this State;
26 (B) Gross profits from trading in stocks, bonds or

SB0007 Engrossed- 162 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 other securities managed within this State;
2 (C) Dividends, and interest from Illinois
3 customers, which are received within this State;
4 (D) Interest charged to customers at places of
5 business maintained within this State for carrying
6 debit balances of margin accounts, without deduction
7 of any costs incurred in carrying such accounts; and
8 (E) Any other gross income resulting from the
9 operation as a financial organization within this
10 State. In computing the amounts referred to in
11 paragraphs (A) through (E) of this subsection, any
12 amount received by a member of an affiliated group
13 (determined under Section 1504(a) of the Internal
14 Revenue Code but without reference to whether any such
15 corporation is an "includible corporation" under
16 Section 1504(b) of the Internal Revenue Code) from
17 another member of such group shall be included only to
18 the extent such amount exceeds expenses of the
19 recipient directly related thereto.
20 (2) International Banking Facility. For taxable years
21 ending before December 31, 2008:
22 (A) Adjusted Income. The adjusted income of an
23 international banking facility is its income reduced
24 by the amount of the floor amount.
25 (B) Floor Amount. The floor amount shall be the
26 amount, if any, determined by multiplying the income of

SB0007 Engrossed- 163 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 the international banking facility by a fraction, not
2 greater than one, which is determined as follows:
3 (i) The numerator shall be:
4 The average aggregate, determined on a
5 quarterly basis, of the financial organization's
6 loans to banks in foreign countries, to foreign
7 domiciled borrowers (except where secured
8 primarily by real estate) and to foreign
9 governments and other foreign official
10 institutions, as reported for its branches,
11 agencies and offices within the state on its
12 "Consolidated Report of Condition", Schedule A,
13 Lines 2.c., 5.b., and 7.a., which was filed with
14 the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and
15 other regulatory authorities, for the year 1980,
16 minus
17 The average aggregate, determined on a
18 quarterly basis, of such loans (other than loans of
19 an international banking facility), as reported by
20 the financial institution for its branches,
21 agencies and offices within the state, on the
22 corresponding Schedule and lines of the
23 Consolidated Report of Condition for the current
24 taxable year, provided, however, that in no case
25 shall the amount determined in this clause (the
26 subtrahend) exceed the amount determined in the

SB0007 Engrossed- 164 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 preceding clause (the minuend); and
2 (ii) the denominator shall be the average
3 aggregate, determined on a quarterly basis, of the
4 international banking facility's loans to banks in
5 foreign countries, to foreign domiciled borrowers
6 (except where secured primarily by real estate)
7 and to foreign governments and other foreign
8 official institutions, which were recorded in its
9 financial accounts for the current taxable year.
10 (C) Change to Consolidated Report of Condition and
11 in Qualification. In the event the Consolidated Report
12 of Condition which is filed with the Federal Deposit
13 Insurance Corporation and other regulatory authorities
14 is altered so that the information required for
15 determining the floor amount is not found on Schedule
16 A, lines 2.c., 5.b. and 7.a., the financial institution
17 shall notify the Department and the Department may, by
18 regulations or otherwise, prescribe or authorize the
19 use of an alternative source for such information. The
20 financial institution shall also notify the Department
21 should its international banking facility fail to
22 qualify as such, in whole or in part, or should there
23 be any amendment or change to the Consolidated Report
24 of Condition, as originally filed, to the extent such
25 amendment or change alters the information used in
26 determining the floor amount.

SB0007 Engrossed- 165 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 (3) For taxable years ending on or after December 31,
2 2008, the business income of a financial organization shall
3 be apportioned to this State by multiplying such income by
4 a fraction, the numerator of which is its gross receipts
5 from sources in this State or otherwise attributable to
6 this State's marketplace and the denominator of which is
7 its gross receipts everywhere during the taxable year.
8 "Gross receipts" for purposes of this subparagraph (3)
9 means gross income, including net taxable gain on
10 disposition of assets, including securities and money
11 market instruments, when derived from transactions and
12 activities in the regular course of the financial
13 organization's trade or business. The following examples
14 are illustrative:
15 (i) Receipts from the lease or rental of real or
16 tangible personal property are in this State if the
17 property is located in this State during the rental
18 period. Receipts from the lease or rental of tangible
19 personal property that is characteristically moving
20 property, including, but not limited to, motor
21 vehicles, rolling stock, aircraft, vessels, or mobile
22 equipment are from sources in this State to the extent
23 that the property is used in this State.
24 (ii) Interest income, commissions, fees, gains on
25 disposition, and other receipts from assets in the
26 nature of loans that are secured primarily by real

SB0007 Engrossed- 166 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 estate or tangible personal property are from sources
2 in this State if the security is located in this State.
3 (iii) Interest income, commissions, fees, gains on
4 disposition, and other receipts from consumer loans
5 that are not secured by real or tangible personal
6 property are from sources in this State if the debtor
7 is a resident of this State.
8 (iv) Interest income, commissions, fees, gains on
9 disposition, and other receipts from commercial loans
10 and installment obligations that are not secured by
11 real or tangible personal property are from sources in
12 this State if the proceeds of the loan are to be
13 applied in this State. If it cannot be determined where
14 the funds are to be applied, the income and receipts
15 are from sources in this State if the office of the
16 borrower from which the loan was negotiated in the
17 regular course of business is located in this State. If
18 the location of this office cannot be determined, the
19 income and receipts shall be excluded from the
20 numerator and denominator of the sales factor.
21 (v) Interest income, fees, gains on disposition,
22 service charges, merchant discount income, and other
23 receipts from credit card receivables are from sources
24 in this State if the card charges are regularly billed
25 to a customer in this State.
26 (vi) Receipts from the performance of services,

SB0007 Engrossed- 167 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 including, but not limited to, fiduciary, advisory,
2 and brokerage services, are in this State if the
3 services are received in this State within the meaning
4 of subparagraph (a)(3)(C-5)(iv) of this Section.
5 (vii) Receipts from the issuance of travelers
6 checks and money orders are from sources in this State
7 if the checks and money orders are issued from a
8 location within this State.
9 (viii) Receipts from investment assets and
10 activities and trading assets and activities are
11 included in the receipts factor as follows:
12 (1) Interest, dividends, net gains (but not
13 less than zero) and other income from investment
14 assets and activities from trading assets and
15 activities shall be included in the receipts
16 factor. Investment assets and activities and
17 trading assets and activities include but are not
18 limited to: investment securities; trading account
19 assets; federal funds; securities purchased and
20 sold under agreements to resell or repurchase;
21 options; futures contracts; forward contracts;
22 notional principal contracts such as swaps;
23 equities; and foreign currency transactions. With
24 respect to the investment and trading assets and
25 activities described in subparagraphs (A) and (B)
26 of this paragraph, the receipts factor shall

SB0007 Engrossed- 168 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 include the amounts described in such
2 subparagraphs.
3 (A) The receipts factor shall include the
4 amount by which interest from federal funds
5 sold and securities purchased under resale
6 agreements exceeds interest expense on federal
7 funds purchased and securities sold under
8 repurchase agreements.
9 (B) The receipts factor shall include the
10 amount by which interest, dividends, gains and
11 other income from trading assets and
12 activities, including but not limited to
13 assets and activities in the matched book, in
14 the arbitrage book, and foreign currency
15 transactions, exceed amounts paid in lieu of
16 interest, amounts paid in lieu of dividends,
17 and losses from such assets and activities.
18 (2) The numerator of the receipts factor
19 includes interest, dividends, net gains (but not
20 less than zero), and other income from investment
21 assets and activities and from trading assets and
22 activities described in paragraph (1) of this
23 subsection that are attributable to this State.
24 (A) The amount of interest, dividends, net
25 gains (but not less than zero), and other
26 income from investment assets and activities

SB0007 Engrossed- 169 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 in the investment account to be attributed to
2 this State and included in the numerator is
3 determined by multiplying all such income from
4 such assets and activities by a fraction, the
5 numerator of which is the gross income from
6 such assets and activities which are properly
7 assigned to a fixed place of business of the
8 taxpayer within this State and the denominator
9 of which is the gross income from all such
10 assets and activities.
11 (B) The amount of interest from federal
12 funds sold and purchased and from securities
13 purchased under resale agreements and
14 securities sold under repurchase agreements
15 attributable to this State and included in the
16 numerator is determined by multiplying the
17 amount described in subparagraph (A) of
18 paragraph (1) of this subsection from such
19 funds and such securities by a fraction, the
20 numerator of which is the gross income from
21 such funds and such securities which are
22 properly assigned to a fixed place of business
23 of the taxpayer within this State and the
24 denominator of which is the gross income from
25 all such funds and such securities.
26 (C) The amount of interest, dividends,

SB0007 Engrossed- 170 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 gains, and other income from trading assets and
2 activities, including but not limited to
3 assets and activities in the matched book, in
4 the arbitrage book and foreign currency
5 transactions (but excluding amounts described
6 in subparagraphs (A) or (B) of this paragraph),
7 attributable to this State and included in the
8 numerator is determined by multiplying the
9 amount described in subparagraph (B) of
10 paragraph (1) of this subsection by a fraction,
11 the numerator of which is the gross income from
12 such trading assets and activities which are
13 properly assigned to a fixed place of business
14 of the taxpayer within this State and the
15 denominator of which is the gross income from
16 all such assets and activities.
17 (D) Properly assigned, for purposes of
18 this paragraph (2) of this subsection, means
19 the investment or trading asset or activity is
20 assigned to the fixed place of business with
21 which it has a preponderance of substantive
22 contacts. An investment or trading asset or
23 activity assigned by the taxpayer to a fixed
24 place of business without the State shall be
25 presumed to have been properly assigned if:
26 (i) the taxpayer has assigned, in the

SB0007 Engrossed- 171 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 regular course of its business, such asset
2 or activity on its records to a fixed place
3 of business consistent with federal or
4 state regulatory requirements;
5 (ii) such assignment on its records is
6 based upon substantive contacts of the
7 asset or activity to such fixed place of
8 business; and
9 (iii) the taxpayer uses such records
10 reflecting assignment of such assets or
11 activities for the filing of all state and
12 local tax returns for which an assignment
13 of such assets or activities to a fixed
14 place of business is required.
15 (E) The presumption of proper assignment
16 of an investment or trading asset or activity
17 provided in subparagraph (D) of paragraph (2)
18 of this subsection may be rebutted upon a
19 showing by the Department, supported by a
20 preponderance of the evidence, that the
21 preponderance of substantive contacts
22 regarding such asset or activity did not occur
23 at the fixed place of business to which it was
24 assigned on the taxpayer's records. If the
25 fixed place of business that has a
26 preponderance of substantive contacts cannot

SB0007 Engrossed- 172 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 be determined for an investment or trading
2 asset or activity to which the presumption in
3 subparagraph (D) of paragraph (2) of this
4 subsection does not apply or with respect to
5 which that presumption has been rebutted, that
6 asset or activity is properly assigned to the
7 state in which the taxpayer's commercial
8 domicile is located. For purposes of this
9 subparagraph (E), it shall be presumed,
10 subject to rebuttal, that taxpayer's
11 commercial domicile is in the state of the
12 United States or the District of Columbia to
13 which the greatest number of employees are
14 regularly connected with the management of the
15 investment or trading income or out of which
16 they are working, irrespective of where the
17 services of such employees are performed, as of
18 the last day of the taxable year.
19 (4) (Blank).
20 (5) (Blank).
21 (c-1) Federally regulated exchanges. For taxable years
22ending on or after December 31, 2012, business income of a
23federally regulated exchange shall, at the option of the
24federally regulated exchange, be apportioned to this State by
25multiplying such income by a fraction, the numerator of which
26is its business income from sources within this State, and the

SB0007 Engrossed- 173 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1denominator of which is its business income from all sources.
2For purposes of this subsection, the business income within
3this State of a federally regulated exchange is the sum of the
4following:
5 (1) Receipts attributable to transactions executed on
6 a physical trading floor if that physical trading floor is
7 located in this State.
8 (2) Receipts attributable to all other matching,
9 execution, or clearing transactions, including without
10 limitation receipts from the provision of matching,
11 execution, or clearing services to another entity,
12 multiplied by (i) for taxable years ending on or after
13 December 31, 2012 but before December 31, 2013, 63.77%; and
14 (ii) for taxable years ending on or after December 31,
15 2013, 27.54%.
16 (3) All other receipts not governed by subparagraphs
17 (1) or (2) of this subsection (c-1), to the extent the
18 receipts would be characterized as "sales in this State"
19 under item (3) of subsection (a) of this Section.
20 "Federally regulated exchange" means (i) a "registered
21entity" within the meaning of 7 U.S.C. Section 1a(40)(A), (B),
22or (C), (ii) an "exchange" or "clearing agency" within the
23meaning of 15 U.S.C. Section 78c (a)(1) or (23), (iii) any such
24entities regulated under any successor regulatory structure to
25the foregoing, and (iv) all taxpayers who are members of the
26same unitary business group as a federally regulated exchange,

SB0007 Engrossed- 174 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1determined without regard to the prohibition in Section
21501(a)(27) of this Act against including in a unitary business
3group taxpayers who are ordinarily required to apportion
4business income under different subsections of this Section;
5provided that this subparagraph (iv) shall apply only if 50% or
6more of the business receipts of the unitary business group
7determined by application of this subparagraph (iv) for the
8taxable year are attributable to the matching, execution, or
9clearing of transactions conducted by an entity described in
10subparagraph (i), (ii), or (iii) of this paragraph.
11 In no event shall the Illinois apportionment percentage
12computed in accordance with this subsection (c-1) for any
13taxpayer for any tax year be less than the Illinois
14apportionment percentage computed under this subsection (c-1)
15for that taxpayer for the first full tax year ending on or
16after December 31, 2013 for which this subsection (c-1) applied
17to the taxpayer.
18 (d) Transportation services. For taxable years ending
19before December 31, 2008, business income derived from
20furnishing transportation services shall be apportioned to
21this State in accordance with paragraphs (1) and (2):
22 (1) Such business income (other than that derived from
23 transportation by pipeline) shall be apportioned to this
24 State by multiplying such income by a fraction, the
25 numerator of which is the revenue miles of the person in
26 this State, and the denominator of which is the revenue

SB0007 Engrossed- 175 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 miles of the person everywhere. For purposes of this
2 paragraph, a revenue mile is the transportation of 1
3 passenger or 1 net ton of freight the distance of 1 mile
4 for a consideration. Where a person is engaged in the
5 transportation of both passengers and freight, the
6 fraction above referred to shall be determined by means of
7 an average of the passenger revenue mile fraction and the
8 freight revenue mile fraction, weighted to reflect the
9 person's
10 (A) relative railway operating income from total
11 passenger and total freight service, as reported to the
12 Interstate Commerce Commission, in the case of
13 transportation by railroad, and
14 (B) relative gross receipts from passenger and
15 freight transportation, in case of transportation
16 other than by railroad.
17 (2) Such business income derived from transportation
18 by pipeline shall be apportioned to this State by
19 multiplying such income by a fraction, the numerator of
20 which is the revenue miles of the person in this State, and
21 the denominator of which is the revenue miles of the person
22 everywhere. For the purposes of this paragraph, a revenue
23 mile is the transportation by pipeline of 1 barrel of oil,
24 1,000 cubic feet of gas, or of any specified quantity of
25 any other substance, the distance of 1 mile for a
26 consideration.

SB0007 Engrossed- 176 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 (3) For taxable years ending on or after December 31,
2 2008, business income derived from providing
3 transportation services other than airline services shall
4 be apportioned to this State by using a fraction, (a) the
5 numerator of which shall be (i) all receipts from any
6 movement or shipment of people, goods, mail, oil, gas, or
7 any other substance (other than by airline) that both
8 originates and terminates in this State, plus (ii) that
9 portion of the person's gross receipts from movements or
10 shipments of people, goods, mail, oil, gas, or any other
11 substance (other than by airline) that originates in one
12 state or jurisdiction and terminates in another state or
13 jurisdiction, that is determined by the ratio that the
14 miles traveled in this State bears to total miles
15 everywhere and (b) the denominator of which shall be all
16 revenue derived from the movement or shipment of people,
17 goods, mail, oil, gas, or any other substance (other than
18 by airline). Where a taxpayer is engaged in the
19 transportation of both passengers and freight, the
20 fraction above referred to shall first be determined
21 separately for passenger miles and freight miles. Then an
22 average of the passenger miles fraction and the freight
23 miles fraction shall be weighted to reflect the taxpayer's:
24 (A) relative railway operating income from total
25 passenger and total freight service, as reported to the
26 Surface Transportation Board, in the case of

SB0007 Engrossed- 177 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 transportation by railroad; and
2 (B) relative gross receipts from passenger and
3 freight transportation, in case of transportation
4 other than by railroad.
5 (4) For taxable years ending on or after December 31,
6 2008, business income derived from furnishing airline
7 transportation services shall be apportioned to this State
8 by multiplying such income by a fraction, the numerator of
9 which is the revenue miles of the person in this State, and
10 the denominator of which is the revenue miles of the person
11 everywhere. For purposes of this paragraph, a revenue mile
12 is the transportation of one passenger or one net ton of
13 freight the distance of one mile for a consideration. If a
14 person is engaged in the transportation of both passengers
15 and freight, the fraction above referred to shall be
16 determined by means of an average of the passenger revenue
17 mile fraction and the freight revenue mile fraction,
18 weighted to reflect the person's relative gross receipts
19 from passenger and freight airline transportation.
20 (e) Combined apportionment. Where 2 or more persons are
21engaged in a unitary business as described in subsection
22(a)(27) of Section 1501, a part of which is conducted in this
23State by one or more members of the group, the business income
24attributable to this State by any such member or members shall
25be apportioned by means of the combined apportionment method.
26 (f) Alternative allocation. If the allocation and

SB0007 Engrossed- 178 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1apportionment provisions of subsections (a) through (e) and of
2subsection (h) do not, for taxable years ending before December
331, 2008, fairly represent the extent of a person's business
4activity in this State, or, for taxable years ending on or
5after December 31, 2008, fairly represent the market for the
6person's goods, services, or other sources of business income,
7the person may petition for, or the Director may, without a
8petition, permit or require, in respect of all or any part of
9the person's business activity, if reasonable:
10 (1) Separate accounting;
11 (2) The exclusion of any one or more factors;
12 (3) The inclusion of one or more additional factors
13 which will fairly represent the person's business
14 activities or market in this State; or
15 (4) The employment of any other method to effectuate an
16 equitable allocation and apportionment of the person's
17 business income.
18 (g) Cross reference. For allocation of business income by
19residents, see Section 301(a).
20 (h) For tax years ending on or after December 31, 1998, the
21apportionment factor of persons who apportion their business
22income to this State under subsection (a) shall be equal to:
23 (1) for tax years ending on or after December 31, 1998
24 and before December 31, 1999, 16 2/3% of the property
25 factor plus 16 2/3% of the payroll factor plus 66 2/3% of
26 the sales factor;

SB0007 Engrossed- 179 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 (2) for tax years ending on or after December 31, 1999
2 and before December 31, 2000, 8 1/3% of the property factor
3 plus 8 1/3% of the payroll factor plus 83 1/3% of the sales
4 factor;
5 (3) for tax years ending on or after December 31, 2000,
6 the sales factor.
7If, in any tax year ending on or after December 31, 1998 and
8before December 31, 2000, the denominator of the payroll,
9property, or sales factor is zero, the apportionment factor
10computed in paragraph (1) or (2) of this subsection for that
11year shall be divided by an amount equal to 100% minus the
12percentage weight given to each factor whose denominator is
13equal to zero.

11thereafter in connection with a race track in Madison County,
12the Board shall award racing dates and such organization
13licensee shall run at least 700 thoroughbred races at the race
14track in Madison County each year.
15 Notwithstanding Section 7.7 of the Illinois Gambling Act or
16any provision of this Act other than subsection (e-4.5), for
17each calendar year for which an electronic gaming licensee
18located in Madison County requests racing dates resulting in
19less than 700 live thoroughbred races at its race track
20facility, the electronic gaming licensee may not conduct
21electronic gaming for the calendar year of such requested live
22races.
23 (e-4) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 7.7 of the
24Illinois Gambling Act or any provision of this Act other than
25subsections (e-3) and (e-4.5), for each calendar year for which
26an electronic gaming licensee requests thoroughbred racing

SB0007 Engrossed- 211 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1dates which results in a number of live races under its
2organization license that is less than the total number of live
3races which it conducted in 2016 at its race track facility,
4the electronic gaming licensee may not conduct electronic
5gaming for the calendar year of such requested live races.
6 (e-4.1) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 7.7 of
7the Illinois Gambling Act or any provision of this Act other
8than subsections (e-3) and (e-4.5), for each calendar year for
9which an organization licensee requests racing dates for

11that is less than the total number of live races required in

17per year to qualify for an electronic gaming license under this
18Act. The General Assembly finds that the minimum live racing
19guarantees contained in subsections (e-1), (e-2), and (e-3) are
20in the best interest of the sport of horse racing, and that
21such guarantees may only be reduced in the limited
22circumstances described in this subsection. The Board may
23decrease the number of racing days without affecting an
24organization licensee's ability to conduct electronic gaming
25only if the Board determines, after notice and hearing, that:
26 (i) a decrease is necessary to maintain a sufficient

SB0007 Engrossed- 212 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 number of betting interests per race to ensure the
2 integrity of racing;
3 (ii) there are unsafe track conditions due to weather
4 or acts of God;
5 (iii) there is an agreement between an organization
6 licensee and the breed association that is applicable to
7 the involved live racing guarantee, such association
8 representing either the largest number of thoroughbred
9 owners and trainers or the largest number of standardbred
10 owners, trainers and drivers who race horses at the
11 involved organization licensee's racing meeting, so long
12 as the agreement does not compromise the integrity of the
13 sport of horse racing; or
14 (iv) the horse population or purse levels are
15 insufficient to provide the number of racing opportunities
16 otherwise required in this Act.
17 In decreasing the number of racing dates in accordance with
18this subsection, the Board shall hold a hearing and shall
19provide the public and all interested parties notice and an
20opportunity to be heard. The Board shall accept testimony from
21all interested parties, including any association representing
22owners, trainers, jockeys, or drivers who will be affected by
23the decrease in racing dates. The Board shall provide a written
24explanation of the reasons for the decrease and the Board's
25findings. The written explanation shall include a listing and
26content of all communication between any party and any Illinois

SB0007 Engrossed- 213 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1Racing Board member or staff that does not take place at a
2public meeting of the Board.
3 (e-5) In reviewing an application for the purpose of
4granting an organization license consistent with the best
5interests of the public and the sport of horse racing, the
6Board shall consider:
7 (1) the character, reputation, experience, and
8 financial integrity of the applicant and of any other
9 separate person that either:
10 (i) controls the applicant, directly or
11 indirectly, or
12 (ii) is controlled, directly or indirectly, by
13 that applicant or by a person who controls, directly or
14 indirectly, that applicant;
15 (2) the applicant's facilities or proposed facilities
16 for conducting horse racing;
17 (3) the total revenue without regard to Section 32.1 to
18 be derived by the State and horsemen from the applicant's
19 conducting a race meeting;
20 (4) the applicant's good faith affirmative action plan
21 to recruit, train, and upgrade minorities in all employment
22 classifications;
23 (5) the applicant's financial ability to purchase and
24 maintain adequate liability and casualty insurance;
25 (6) the applicant's proposed and prior year's
26 promotional and marketing activities and expenditures of

SB0007 Engrossed- 214 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 the applicant associated with those activities;
2 (7) an agreement, if any, among organization licensees
3 as provided in subsection (b) of Section 21 of this Act;
4 and
5 (8) the extent to which the applicant exceeds or meets
6 other standards for the issuance of an organization license
7 that the Board shall adopt by rule.
8 In granting organization licenses and allocating dates for
9horse race meetings, the Board shall have discretion to
10determine an overall schedule, including required simulcasts
11of Illinois races by host tracks that will, in its judgment, be
12conducive to the best interests of the public and the sport of
13horse racing.
14 (e-10) The Illinois Administrative Procedure Act shall
15apply to administrative procedures of the Board under this Act
16for the granting of an organization license, except that (1)
17notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (b) of Section
1810-40 of the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act regarding
19cross-examination, the Board may prescribe rules limiting the
20right of an applicant or participant in any proceeding to award
21an organization license to conduct cross-examination of
22witnesses at that proceeding where that cross-examination
23would unduly obstruct the timely award of an organization
24license under subsection (e) of Section 20 of this Act; (2) the
25provisions of Section 10-45 of the Illinois Administrative
26Procedure Act regarding proposals for decision are excluded

SB0007 Engrossed- 215 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1under this Act; (3) notwithstanding the provisions of
2subsection (a) of Section 10-60 of the Illinois Administrative
3Procedure Act regarding ex parte communications, the Board may
4prescribe rules allowing ex parte communications with
5applicants or participants in a proceeding to award an
6organization license where conducting those communications
7would be in the best interest of racing, provided all those
8communications are made part of the record of that proceeding
9pursuant to subsection (c) of Section 10-60 of the Illinois
10Administrative Procedure Act; (4) the provisions of Section 14a
11of this Act and the rules of the Board promulgated under that
12Section shall apply instead of the provisions of Article 10 of
13the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act regarding
14administrative law judges; and (5) the provisions of subsection
15(d) of Section 10-65 of the Illinois Administrative Procedure
16Act that prevent summary suspension of a license pending
17revocation or other action shall not apply.
18 (f) The Board may allot racing dates to an organization
19licensee for more than one calendar year but for no more than 3
20successive calendar years in advance, provided that the Board
21shall review such allotment for more than one calendar year
22prior to each year for which such allotment has been made. The
23granting of an organization license to a person constitutes a
24privilege to conduct a horse race meeting under the provisions
25of this Act, and no person granted an organization license
26shall be deemed to have a vested interest, property right, or

SB0007 Engrossed- 216 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1future expectation to receive an organization license in any
2subsequent year as a result of the granting of an organization
3license. Organization licenses shall be subject to revocation
4if the organization licensee has violated any provision of this
5Act or the rules and regulations promulgated under this Act or
6has been convicted of a crime or has failed to disclose or has
7stated falsely any information called for in the application
8for an organization license. Any organization license
9revocation proceeding shall be in accordance with Section 16
10regarding suspension and revocation of occupation licenses.
11 (f-5) If, (i) an applicant does not file an acceptance of
12the racing dates awarded by the Board as required under part
13(1) of subsection (h) of this Section 20, or (ii) an
14organization licensee has its license suspended or revoked
15under this Act, the Board, upon conducting an emergency hearing
16as provided for in this Act, may reaward on an emergency basis
17pursuant to rules established by the Board, racing dates not
18accepted or the racing dates associated with any suspension or
19revocation period to one or more organization licensees, new
20applicants, or any combination thereof, upon terms and
21conditions that the Board determines are in the best interest
22of racing, provided, the organization licensees or new
23applicants receiving the awarded racing dates file an
24acceptance of those reawarded racing dates as required under
25paragraph (1) of subsection (h) of this Section 20 and comply
26with the other provisions of this Act. The Illinois

23 If any applicant fails to comply with this Section or fails
24to pay the organization license fees herein provided, no
25organization license shall be issued to such applicant.

13 (c) Until January 1, 2000, the sum held by any licensee for
14payment of outstanding pari-mutuel tickets, if unclaimed prior
15to December 31 of the next year, shall be retained by the
16licensee for payment of such tickets until that date. Within 10
17days thereafter, the balance of such sum remaining unclaimed,
18less any uncashed supplements contributed by such licensee for
19the purpose of guaranteeing minimum distributions of any

2remaining unclaimed, less any uncashed supplements contributed
3by such licensee for the purpose of guaranteeing minimum
4distributions of any pari-mutuel pool, shall be evenly
5distributed to the purse account of the organization licensee

14driver, or employee thereof, to be admitted during a racing
15program unless accompanied by a parent or guardian, or any
16minor to be a patron of the pari-mutuel system of wagering
17conducted or supervised by it. The admission of any
18unaccompanied minor, other than an employee of the licensee or
19an owner, trainer, jockey, driver, or employee thereof at a
20race track is a Class C misdemeanor.
21 (f) Notwithstanding the other provisions of this Act, an
22organization licensee may contract with an entity in another
23state or country to permit any legal wagering entity in another
24state or country to accept wagers solely within such other
25state or country on races conducted by the organization
26licensee in this State. Beginning January 1, 2000, these wagers

SB0007 Engrossed- 228 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1shall not be subject to State taxation. Until January 1, 2000,
2when the out-of-State entity conducts a pari-mutuel pool
3separate from the organization licensee, a privilege tax equal
4to 7 1/2% of all monies received by the organization licensee
5from entities in other states or countries pursuant to such
6contracts is imposed on the organization licensee, and such
7privilege tax shall be remitted to the Department of Revenue
8within 48 hours of receipt of the moneys from the simulcast.
9When the out-of-State entity conducts a combined pari-mutuel
10pool with the organization licensee, the tax shall be 10% of
11all monies received by the organization licensee with 25% of
12the receipts from this 10% tax to be distributed to the county
13in which the race was conducted.
14 An organization licensee may permit one or more of its
15races to be utilized for pari-mutuel wagering at one or more
16locations in other states and may transmit audio and visual
17signals of races the organization licensee conducts to one or
18more locations outside the State or country and may also permit
19pari-mutuel pools in other states or countries to be combined
20with its gross or net wagering pools or with wagering pools
21established by other states.
22 (g) A host track may accept interstate simulcast wagers on
23horse races conducted in other states or countries and shall
24control the number of signals and types of breeds of racing in
25its simulcast program, subject to the disapproval of the Board.
26The Board may prohibit a simulcast program only if it finds

SB0007 Engrossed- 229 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1that the simulcast program is clearly adverse to the integrity
2of racing. The host track simulcast program shall include the
3signal of live racing of all organization licensees. All
4non-host licensees and advance deposit wagering licensees
5shall carry the signal of and accept wagers on live racing of
6all organization licensees. Advance deposit wagering licensees
7shall not be permitted to accept out-of-state wagers on any
8Illinois signal provided pursuant to this Section without the
9approval and consent of the organization licensee providing the
10signal. For one year after August 15, 2014 (the effective date
11of Public Act 98-968) this amendatory Act of the 98th General
12Assembly, non-host licensees may carry the host track simulcast
13program and shall accept wagers on all races included as part
14of the simulcast program of horse races conducted at race
15tracks located within North America upon which wagering is
16permitted. For a period of one year after August 15, 2014 (the
17effective date of Public Act 98-968) this amendatory Act of the
1898th General Assembly, on horse races conducted at race tracks
19located outside of North America, non-host licensees may accept
20wagers on all races included as part of the simulcast program
21upon which wagering is permitted. Beginning August 15, 2015
22(one year after the effective date of Public Act 98-968) this
23amendatory Act of the 98th General Assembly, non-host licensees
24may carry the host track simulcast program and shall accept
25wagers on all races included as part of the simulcast program
26upon which wagering is permitted. All organization licensees

SB0007 Engrossed- 230 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1shall provide their live signal to all advance deposit wagering
2licensees for a simulcast commission fee not to exceed 6% of
3the advance deposit wagering licensee's Illinois handle on the
4organization licensee's signal without prior approval by the
5Board. The Board may adopt rules under which it may permit
6simulcast commission fees in excess of 6%. The Board shall
7adopt rules limiting the interstate commission fees charged to
8an advance deposit wagering licensee. The Board shall adopt
9rules regarding advance deposit wagering on interstate
10simulcast races that shall reflect, among other things, the
11General Assembly's desire to maximize revenues to the State,
12horsemen purses, and organizational licensees. However,
13organization licensees providing live signals pursuant to the
14requirements of this subsection (g) may petition the Board to
15withhold their live signals from an advance deposit wagering
16licensee if the organization licensee discovers and the Board
17finds reputable or credible information that the advance
18deposit wagering licensee is under investigation by another
19state or federal governmental agency, the advance deposit
20wagering licensee's license has been suspended in another
21state, or the advance deposit wagering licensee's license is in
22revocation proceedings in another state. The organization
23licensee's provision of their live signal to an advance deposit
24wagering licensee under this subsection (g) pertains to wagers
25placed from within Illinois. Advance deposit wagering
26licensees may place advance deposit wagering terminals at

SB0007 Engrossed- 231 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1wagering facilities as a convenience to customers. The advance
2deposit wagering licensee shall not charge or collect any fee
3from purses for the placement of the advance deposit wagering
4terminals. The costs and expenses of the host track and
5non-host licensees associated with interstate simulcast
6wagering, other than the interstate commission fee, shall be
7borne by the host track and all non-host licensees incurring
8these costs. The interstate commission fee shall not exceed 5%
9of Illinois handle on the interstate simulcast race or races
10without prior approval of the Board. The Board shall promulgate
11rules under which it may permit interstate commission fees in
12excess of 5%. The interstate commission fee and other fees
13charged by the sending racetrack, including, but not limited
14to, satellite decoder fees, shall be uniformly applied to the
15host track and all non-host licensees.
16 Notwithstanding any other provision of this Act, through
17December 31, 2018, an organization licensee, with the consent
18of the horsemen association representing the largest number of
19owners, trainers, jockeys, or standardbred drivers who race
20horses at that organization licensee's racing meeting, may
21maintain a system whereby advance deposit wagering may take
22place or an organization licensee, with the consent of the
23horsemen association representing the largest number of
24owners, trainers, jockeys, or standardbred drivers who race
25horses at that organization licensee's racing meeting, may
26contract with another person to carry out a system of advance

SB0007 Engrossed- 232 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1deposit wagering. Such consent may not be unreasonably
2withheld. Only with respect to an appeal to the Board that
3consent for an organization licensee that maintains its own
4advance deposit wagering system is being unreasonably
5withheld, the Board shall issue a final order within 30 days
6after initiation of the appeal, and the organization licensee's
7advance deposit wagering system may remain operational during
8that 30-day period. The actions of any organization licensee
9who conducts advance deposit wagering or any person who has a
10contract with an organization licensee to conduct advance
11deposit wagering who conducts advance deposit wagering on or
12after January 1, 2013 and prior to June 7, 2013 (the effective
13date of Public Act 98-18) this amendatory Act of the 98th
14General Assembly taken in reliance on the changes made to this
15subsection (g) by Public Act 98-18 this amendatory Act of the
1698th General Assembly are hereby validated, provided payment of
17all applicable pari-mutuel taxes are remitted to the Board. All
18advance deposit wagers placed from within Illinois must be
19placed through a Board-approved advance deposit wagering
20licensee; no other entity may accept an advance deposit wager
21from a person within Illinois. All advance deposit wagering is
22subject to any rules adopted by the Board. The Board may adopt
23rules necessary to regulate advance deposit wagering through
24the use of emergency rulemaking in accordance with Section 5-45
25of the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act. The General
26Assembly finds that the adoption of rules to regulate advance
