changing Section 223 as follows:
(35 ILCS 5/223)
Sec. 223. Hospital credit.
(a) For tax years ending on or after December 31, 2012 and
ending on or before December 31, 2027 December 31, 2022, a
taxpayer that is the owner of a hospital licensed under the
Hospital Licensing Act, but not including an organization that
is exempt from federal income taxes under the Internal Revenue
Code, is entitled to a credit against the taxes imposed under
subsections (a) and (b) of Section 201 of this Act in an amount
equal to the lesser of the amount of real property taxes paid
during the tax year on real property used for hospital
purposes during the prior tax year or the cost of free or
discounted services provided during the tax year pursuant to
the hospital's charitable financial assistance policy,
measured at cost.
(b) If the taxpayer is a partnership or Subchapter S
corporation, the credit is allowed to the partners or
shareholders in accordance with the determination of income
and distributive share of income under Sections 702 and 704

this credit may be made by the taxpayer earning the credit
within one year after the credit is earned in accordance with
rules adopted by the Department. The Department shall
prescribe rules to enforce and administer provisions of this
Section. If the amount of the credit exceeds the tax liability
for the year, then the excess credit may be carried forward and
applied to the tax liability of the 5 taxable years following
the excess credit year. The credit shall be applied to the
earliest year for which there is a tax liability. If there are
credits from more than one tax year that are available to

Section 25-10. The Use Tax Act is amended by changing
Section 3-8 as follows:
(35 ILCS 105/3-8)
Sec. 3-8. Hospital exemption.
(a) Tangible Until July 1, 2022, tangible personal
property sold to or used by a hospital owner that owns one or
more hospitals licensed under the Hospital Licensing Act or
operated under the University of Illinois Hospital Act, or a
hospital affiliate that is not already exempt under another
provision of this Act and meets the criteria for an exemption
under this Section, is exempt from taxation under this Act.
(b) A hospital owner or hospital affiliate satisfies the
conditions for an exemption under this Section if the value of
qualified services or activities listed in subsection (c) of
this Section for the hospital year equals or exceeds the
relevant hospital entity's estimated property tax liability,
without regard to any property tax exemption granted under
Section 15-86 of the Property Tax Code, for the calendar year
in which exemption or renewal of exemption is sought. For
purposes of making the calculations required by this
subsection (b), if the relevant hospital entity is a hospital
owner that owns more than one hospital, the value of the
services or activities listed in subsection (c) shall be
calculated on the basis of only those services and activities
relating to the hospital that includes the subject property,
and the relevant hospital entity's estimated property tax
liability shall be calculated only with respect to the
properties comprising that hospital. In the case of a
multi-state hospital system or hospital affiliate, the value
of the services or activities listed in subsection (c) shall
be calculated on the basis of only those services and
activities that occur in Illinois and the relevant hospital
entity's estimated property tax liability shall be calculated
only with respect to its property located in Illinois.
(c) The following services and activities shall be
considered for purposes of making the calculations required by
subsection (b):
(1) Charity care. Free or discounted services provided
pursuant to the relevant hospital entity's financial
assistance policy, measured at cost, including discounts
provided under the Hospital Uninsured Patient Discount
Act.
(2) Health services to low-income and underserved
individuals. Other unreimbursed costs of the relevant
hospital entity for providing without charge, paying for,
or subsidizing goods, activities, or services for the
purpose of addressing the health of low-income or
underserved individuals. Those activities or services may
include, but are not limited to: financial or in-kind
support to affiliated or unaffiliated hospitals, hospital
affiliates, community clinics, or programs that treat
low-income or underserved individuals; paying for or
subsidizing health care professionals who care for
low-income or underserved individuals; providing or
subsidizing outreach or educational services to low-income
or underserved individuals for disease management and
prevention; free or subsidized goods, supplies, or
services needed by low-income or underserved individuals
because of their medical condition; and prenatal or
childbirth outreach to low-income or underserved persons.
(3) Subsidy of State or local governments. Direct or
indirect financial or in-kind subsidies of State or local
governments by the relevant hospital entity that pay for
or subsidize activities or programs related to health care
for low-income or underserved individuals.
(4) Support for State health care programs for
low-income individuals. At the election of the hospital
applicant for each applicable year, either (A) 10% of
payments to the relevant hospital entity and any hospital
affiliate designated by the relevant hospital entity
(provided that such hospital affiliate's operations
provide financial or operational support for or receive
financial or operational support from the relevant
hospital entity) under Medicaid or other means-tested
programs, including, but not limited to, General
Assistance, the Covering ALL KIDS Health Insurance Act,
and the State Children's Health Insurance Program or (B)
the amount of subsidy provided by the relevant hospital
entity and any hospital affiliate designated by the
relevant hospital entity (provided that such hospital
affiliate's operations provide financial or operational
support for or receive financial or operational support
from the relevant hospital entity) to State or local
government in treating Medicaid recipients and recipients
of means-tested programs, including but not limited to
General Assistance, the Covering ALL KIDS Health Insurance
Act, and the State Children's Health Insurance Program.
The amount of subsidy for purpose of this item (4) is
calculated in the same manner as unreimbursed costs are
calculated for Medicaid and other means-tested government
programs in the Schedule H of IRS Form 990 in effect on the
effective date of this amendatory Act of the 97th General
Assembly.
(5) Dual-eligible subsidy. The amount of subsidy
provided to government by treating dual-eligible
Medicare/Medicaid patients. The amount of subsidy for
purposes of this item (5) is calculated by multiplying the
relevant hospital entity's unreimbursed costs for
Medicare, calculated in the same manner as determined in
the Schedule H of IRS Form 990 in effect on the effective
date of this amendatory Act of the 97th General Assembly,
by the relevant hospital entity's ratio of dual-eligible
patients to total Medicare patients.
(6) Relief of the burden of government related to
health care. Except to the extent otherwise taken into
account in this subsection, the portion of unreimbursed
costs of the relevant hospital entity attributable to
providing, paying for, or subsidizing goods, activities,
or services that relieve the burden of government related
to health care for low-income individuals. Such activities
or services shall include, but are not limited to,
providing emergency, trauma, burn, neonatal, psychiatric,
rehabilitation, or other special services; providing
medical education; and conducting medical research or
training of health care professionals. The portion of
those unreimbursed costs attributable to benefiting
low-income individuals shall be determined using the ratio
calculated by adding the relevant hospital entity's costs
attributable to charity care, Medicaid, other means-tested
government programs, Medicare patients with disabilities
under age 65, and dual-eligible Medicare/Medicaid patients
and dividing that total by the relevant hospital entity's
total costs. Such costs for the numerator and denominator
shall be determined by multiplying gross charges by the
cost to charge ratio taken from the hospital's most
recently filed Medicare cost report (CMS 2252-10
Worksheet, Part I). In the case of emergency services, the
ratio shall be calculated using costs (gross charges
multiplied by the cost to charge ratio taken from the
hospital's most recently filed Medicare cost report (CMS
2252-10 Worksheet, Part I)) of patients treated in the
relevant hospital entity's emergency department.
(7) Any other activity by the relevant hospital entity
that the Department determines relieves the burden of
government or addresses the health of low-income or
underserved individuals.
(d) The hospital applicant shall include information in
its exemption application establishing that it satisfies the
requirements of subsection (b). For purposes of making the
calculations required by subsection (b), the hospital
applicant may for each year elect to use either (1) the value
of the services or activities listed in subsection (e) for the
hospital year or (2) the average value of those services or
activities for the 3 fiscal years ending with the hospital
year. If the relevant hospital entity has been in operation
for less than 3 completed fiscal years, then the latter
calculation, if elected, shall be performed on a pro rata
basis.
(e) For purposes of making the calculations required by
this Section:
(1) particular services or activities eligible for
consideration under any of the paragraphs (1) through (7)
of subsection (c) may not be counted under more than one of
those paragraphs; and
(2) the amount of unreimbursed costs and the amount of
subsidy shall not be reduced by restricted or unrestricted
payments received by the relevant hospital entity as
contributions deductible under Section 170(a) of the
Internal Revenue Code.
(f) (Blank).
(g) Estimation of Exempt Property Tax Liability. The
estimated property tax liability used for the determination in
subsection (b) shall be calculated as follows:
(1) "Estimated property tax liability" means the
estimated dollar amount of property tax that would be
owed, with respect to the exempt portion of each of the
relevant hospital entity's properties that are already
fully or partially exempt, or for which an exemption in
whole or in part is currently being sought, and then
aggregated as applicable, as if the exempt portion of
those properties were subject to tax, calculated with
respect to each such property by multiplying:
(A) the lesser of (i) the actual assessed value,
if any, of the portion of the property for which an
exemption is sought or (ii) an estimated assessed
value of the exempt portion of such property as
determined in item (2) of this subsection (g), by
(B) the applicable State equalization rate
(yielding the equalized assessed value), by
(C) the applicable tax rate.
(2) The estimated assessed value of the exempt portion
of the property equals the sum of (i) the estimated fair
market value of buildings on the property, as determined
in accordance with subparagraphs (A) and (B) of this item
(2), multiplied by the applicable assessment factor, and
(ii) the estimated assessed value of the land portion of
the property, as determined in accordance with
subparagraph (C).
(A) The "estimated fair market value of buildings
on the property" means the replacement value of any
exempt portion of buildings on the property, minus
depreciation, determined utilizing the cost
replacement method whereby the exempt square footage
of all such buildings is multiplied by the replacement
cost per square foot for Class A Average building
found in the most recent edition of the Marshall &
Swift Valuation Services Manual, adjusted by any
appropriate current cost and local multipliers.
(B) Depreciation, for purposes of calculating the
estimated fair market value of buildings on the
property, is applied by utilizing a weighted mean life
for the buildings based on original construction and
assuming a 40-year life for hospital buildings and the
applicable life for other types of buildings as
specified in the American Hospital Association
publication "Estimated Useful Lives of Depreciable
Hospital Assets". In the case of hospital buildings,
the remaining life is divided by 40 and this ratio is
multiplied by the replacement cost of the buildings to
obtain an estimated fair market value of buildings. If
a hospital building is older than 35 years, a
remaining life of 5 years for residual value is
assumed; and if a building is less than 8 years old, a
remaining life of 32 years is assumed.
(C) The estimated assessed value of the land
portion of the property shall be determined by
multiplying (i) the per square foot average of the
assessed values of three parcels of land (not
including farm land, and excluding the assessed value
of the improvements thereon) reasonably comparable to
the property, by (ii) the number of square feet
comprising the exempt portion of the property's land
square footage.
(3) The assessment factor, State equalization rate,
and tax rate (including any special factors such as
Enterprise Zones) used in calculating the estimated
property tax liability shall be for the most recent year
that is publicly available from the applicable chief
county assessment officer or officers at least 90 days
before the end of the hospital year.
(4) The method utilized to calculate estimated
property tax liability for purposes of this Section 15-86
shall not be utilized for the actual valuation,
assessment, or taxation of property pursuant to the
Property Tax Code.
(h) For the purpose of this Section, the following terms

(i) It is the intent of the General Assembly that any
exemptions taken, granted, or renewed under this Section prior
to the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 100th

applicant for each applicable year, either (A) 10% of
payments to the relevant hospital entity and any hospital
affiliate designated by the relevant hospital entity
(provided that such hospital affiliate's operations
provide financial or operational support for or receive

operated under the University of Illinois Hospital Act, or a
hospital affiliate that is not already exempt under another
provision of this Act and meets the criteria for an exemption
under this Section, is exempt from taxation under this Act.
(b) A hospital owner or hospital affiliate satisfies the
conditions for an exemption under this Section if the value of
qualified services or activities listed in subsection (c) of
this Section for the hospital year equals or exceeds the
relevant hospital entity's estimated property tax liability,
without regard to any property tax exemption granted under
Section 15-86 of the Property Tax Code, for the calendar year
in which exemption or renewal of exemption is sought. For
purposes of making the calculations required by this
subsection (b), if the relevant hospital entity is a hospital
owner that owns more than one hospital, the value of the
services or activities listed in subsection (c) shall be
calculated on the basis of only those services and activities
relating to the hospital that includes the subject property,
and the relevant hospital entity's estimated property tax
liability shall be calculated only with respect to the
properties comprising that hospital. In the case of a
multi-state hospital system or hospital affiliate, the value
of the services or activities listed in subsection (c) shall
be calculated on the basis of only those services and
activities that occur in Illinois and the relevant hospital
entity's estimated property tax liability shall be calculated
only with respect to its property located in Illinois.
(c) The following services and activities shall be
considered for purposes of making the calculations required by
subsection (b):
(1) Charity care. Free or discounted services provided
pursuant to the relevant hospital entity's financial
assistance policy, measured at cost, including discounts
provided under the Hospital Uninsured Patient Discount
Act.
(2) Health services to low-income and underserved
individuals. Other unreimbursed costs of the relevant
hospital entity for providing without charge, paying for,
or subsidizing goods, activities, or services for the
purpose of addressing the health of low-income or
underserved individuals. Those activities or services may
include, but are not limited to: financial or in-kind
support to affiliated or unaffiliated hospitals, hospital
affiliates, community clinics, or programs that treat
low-income or underserved individuals; paying for or
subsidizing health care professionals who care for
low-income or underserved individuals; providing or
subsidizing outreach or educational services to low-income
or underserved individuals for disease management and
prevention; free or subsidized goods, supplies, or
services needed by low-income or underserved individuals
because of their medical condition; and prenatal or
childbirth outreach to low-income or underserved persons.
(3) Subsidy of State or local governments. Direct or
indirect financial or in-kind subsidies of State or local
governments by the relevant hospital entity that pay for
or subsidize activities or programs related to health care
for low-income or underserved individuals.
(4) Support for State health care programs for
low-income individuals. At the election of the hospital
applicant for each applicable year, either (A) 10% of
payments to the relevant hospital entity and any hospital
affiliate designated by the relevant hospital entity
(provided that such hospital affiliate's operations
provide financial or operational support for or receive
financial or operational support from the relevant
hospital entity) under Medicaid or other means-tested
programs, including, but not limited to, General
Assistance, the Covering ALL KIDS Health Insurance Act,
and the State Children's Health Insurance Program or (B)
the amount of subsidy provided by the relevant hospital
entity and any hospital affiliate designated by the
relevant hospital entity (provided that such hospital
affiliate's operations provide financial or operational
support for or receive financial or operational support
from the relevant hospital entity) to State or local
government in treating Medicaid recipients and recipients
of means-tested programs, including but not limited to
General Assistance, the Covering ALL KIDS Health Insurance
Act, and the State Children's Health Insurance Program.
The amount of subsidy for purposes of this item (4) is
calculated in the same manner as unreimbursed costs are
calculated for Medicaid and other means-tested government
programs in the Schedule H of IRS Form 990 in effect on the
effective date of this amendatory Act of the 97th General
Assembly.
(5) Dual-eligible subsidy. The amount of subsidy
provided to government by treating dual-eligible
Medicare/Medicaid patients. The amount of subsidy for
purposes of this item (5) is calculated by multiplying the
relevant hospital entity's unreimbursed costs for
Medicare, calculated in the same manner as determined in
the Schedule H of IRS Form 990 in effect on the effective
date of this amendatory Act of the 97th General Assembly,
by the relevant hospital entity's ratio of dual-eligible
patients to total Medicare patients.
(6) Relief of the burden of government related to
health care. Except to the extent otherwise taken into
account in this subsection, the portion of unreimbursed
costs of the relevant hospital entity attributable to
providing, paying for, or subsidizing goods, activities,
or services that relieve the burden of government related
to health care for low-income individuals. Such activities
or services shall include, but are not limited to,
providing emergency, trauma, burn, neonatal, psychiatric,
rehabilitation, or other special services; providing
medical education; and conducting medical research or
training of health care professionals. The portion of
those unreimbursed costs attributable to benefiting
low-income individuals shall be determined using the ratio
calculated by adding the relevant hospital entity's costs
attributable to charity care, Medicaid, other means-tested
government programs, Medicare patients with disabilities
under age 65, and dual-eligible Medicare/Medicaid patients
and dividing that total by the relevant hospital entity's
total costs. Such costs for the numerator and denominator
shall be determined by multiplying gross charges by the
cost to charge ratio taken from the hospital's most
recently filed Medicare cost report (CMS 2252-10
Worksheet, Part I). In the case of emergency services, the
ratio shall be calculated using costs (gross charges
multiplied by the cost to charge ratio taken from the
hospital's most recently filed Medicare cost report (CMS
2252-10 Worksheet, Part I)) of patients treated in the
relevant hospital entity's emergency department.
(7) Any other activity by the relevant hospital entity
that the Department determines relieves the burden of
government or addresses the health of low-income or
underserved individuals.
(d) The hospital applicant shall include information in
its exemption application establishing that it satisfies the
requirements of subsection (b). For purposes of making the
calculations required by subsection (b), the hospital
applicant may for each year elect to use either (1) the value
of the services or activities listed in subsection (e) for the
hospital year or (2) the average value of those services or
activities for the 3 fiscal years ending with the hospital
year. If the relevant hospital entity has been in operation
for less than 3 completed fiscal years, then the latter
calculation, if elected, shall be performed on a pro rata
basis.
(e) For purposes of making the calculations required by
this Section:
(1) particular services or activities eligible for
consideration under any of the paragraphs (1) through (7)
of subsection (c) may not be counted under more than one of
those paragraphs; and
(2) the amount of unreimbursed costs and the amount of
subsidy shall not be reduced by restricted or unrestricted
payments received by the relevant hospital entity as
contributions deductible under Section 170(a) of the
Internal Revenue Code.
(f) (Blank).
(g) Estimation of Exempt Property Tax Liability. The
estimated property tax liability used for the determination in
subsection (b) shall be calculated as follows:
(1) "Estimated property tax liability" means the
estimated dollar amount of property tax that would be
owed, with respect to the exempt portion of each of the
relevant hospital entity's properties that are already
fully or partially exempt, or for which an exemption in
whole or in part is currently being sought, and then
aggregated as applicable, as if the exempt portion of
those properties were subject to tax, calculated with
respect to each such property by multiplying:
(A) the lesser of (i) the actual assessed value,
if any, of the portion of the property for which an
exemption is sought or (ii) an estimated assessed
value of the exempt portion of such property as
determined in item (2) of this subsection (g), by
(B) the applicable State equalization rate
(yielding the equalized assessed value), by
(C) the applicable tax rate.
(2) The estimated assessed value of the exempt portion
of the property equals the sum of (i) the estimated fair
market value of buildings on the property, as determined
in accordance with subparagraphs (A) and (B) of this item
(2), multiplied by the applicable assessment factor, and
(ii) the estimated assessed value of the land portion of
the property, as determined in accordance with
subparagraph (C).
(A) The "estimated fair market value of buildings
on the property" means the replacement value of any
exempt portion of buildings on the property, minus
depreciation, determined utilizing the cost
replacement method whereby the exempt square footage
of all such buildings is multiplied by the replacement
cost per square foot for Class A Average building
found in the most recent edition of the Marshall &
Swift Valuation Services Manual, adjusted by any
appropriate current cost and local multipliers.
(B) Depreciation, for purposes of calculating the
estimated fair market value of buildings on the
property, is applied by utilizing a weighted mean life
for the buildings based on original construction and
assuming a 40-year life for hospital buildings and the
applicable life for other types of buildings as
specified in the American Hospital Association
publication "Estimated Useful Lives of Depreciable
Hospital Assets". In the case of hospital buildings,
the remaining life is divided by 40 and this ratio is
multiplied by the replacement cost of the buildings to
obtain an estimated fair market value of buildings. If
a hospital building is older than 35 years, a
remaining life of 5 years for residual value is
assumed; and if a building is less than 8 years old, a
remaining life of 32 years is assumed.
(C) The estimated assessed value of the land
portion of the property shall be determined by
multiplying (i) the per square foot average of the
assessed values of three parcels of land (not
including farm land, and excluding the assessed value
of the improvements thereon) reasonably comparable to
the property, by (ii) the number of square feet
comprising the exempt portion of the property's land
square footage.
(3) The assessment factor, State equalization rate,
and tax rate (including any special factors such as
Enterprise Zones) used in calculating the estimated
property tax liability shall be for the most recent year
that is publicly available from the applicable chief
county assessment officer or officers at least 90 days
before the end of the hospital year.
(4) The method utilized to calculate estimated
property tax liability for purposes of this Section 15-86
shall not be utilized for the actual valuation,
assessment, or taxation of property pursuant to the
Property Tax Code.
(h) For the purpose of this Section, the following terms

hospital affiliate or (ii) the hospital system to which
the hospital applicant belongs, including any hospitals or
hospital affiliates that are related by common control or
ownership.
(8) "Subject property" means property used for the

different fiscal years, that ends in the year for which
the exemption is sought.
(i) It is the intent of the General Assembly that any
exemptions taken, granted, or renewed under this Section prior
to the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 100th
General Assembly are hereby validated.
(j) It is the intent of the General Assembly that the

applicant for each applicable year, either (A) 10% of
payments to the relevant hospital entity and any hospital
affiliate designated by the relevant hospital entity
(provided that such hospital affiliate's operations

such employees by filing an annual return and paying the taxes
required to be deducted and withheld on or before the 15th day
of the fourth month following the close of the employer's
taxable year. The Department may allow the employer's return
to be submitted with the employer's individual income tax
return or to be submitted with a return due from the employer
under Section 1400.2 of the Unemployment Insurance Act.
(f) Magnetic media and electronic filing. With respect to
taxes withheld in calendar years prior to 2017, any W-2 Form
that, under the Internal Revenue Code and regulations
promulgated thereunder, is required to be submitted to the
Internal Revenue Service on magnetic media or electronically
must also be submitted to the Department on magnetic media or
electronically for Illinois purposes, if required by the
Department.
With respect to taxes withheld in 2017 and subsequent
calendar years, the Department may, by rule, require that any
return (including any amended return) under this Section and
any W-2 Form that is required to be submitted to the Department
must be submitted on magnetic media or electronically.
The due date for submitting W-2 Forms shall be as
prescribed by the Department by rule.
(g) For amounts deducted or withheld after December 31,
2009, a taxpayer who makes an election under subsection (f) of
Section 5-15 of the Economic Development for a Growing Economy
Tax Credit Act for a taxable year shall be allowed a credit
against payments due under this Section for amounts withheld
during the first calendar year beginning after the end of that
taxable year equal to the amount of the credit for the
incremental income tax attributable to full-time employees of
the taxpayer awarded to the taxpayer by the Department of
Commerce and Economic Opportunity under the Economic
Development for a Growing Economy Tax Credit Act for the
taxable year and credits not previously claimed and allowed to
be carried forward under Section 211(4) of this Act as
provided in subsection (f) of Section 5-15 of the Economic
Development for a Growing Economy Tax Credit Act. The credit
or credits may not reduce the taxpayer's obligation for any
payment due under this Section to less than zero. If the amount
of the credit or credits exceeds the total payments due under
this Section with respect to amounts withheld during the
calendar year, the excess may be carried forward and applied
against the taxpayer's liability under this Section in the
succeeding calendar years as allowed to be carried forward
under paragraph (4) of Section 211 of this Act. The credit or
credits shall be applied to the earliest year for which there
is a tax liability. If there are credits from more than one
taxable year that are available to offset a liability, the
earlier credit shall be applied first. Each employer who
deducts and withholds or is required to deduct and withhold
tax under this Act and who retains income tax withholdings
under subsection (f) of Section 5-15 of the Economic
Development for a Growing Economy Tax Credit Act must make a
return with respect to such taxes and retained amounts in the
form and manner that the Department, by rule, requires and pay
to the Department or to a depositary designated by the
Department those withheld taxes not retained by the taxpayer.
For purposes of this subsection (g), the term taxpayer shall
include taxpayer and members of the taxpayer's unitary
business group as defined under paragraph (27) of subsection
(a) of Section 1501 of this Act. This Section is exempt from
the provisions of Section 250 of this Act. No credit awarded
under the Economic Development for a Growing Economy Tax
Credit Act for agreements entered into on or after January 1,
2015 may be credited against payments due under this Section.
(g-1) For amounts deducted or withheld after December 31,
2024, a taxpayer who makes an election under the Reimagining
Electric Vehicles in Illinois Act shall be allowed a credit
against payments due under this Section for amounts withheld
during the first quarterly reporting period beginning after
the certificate is issued equal to the portion of the REV
Illinois Credit attributable to the incremental income tax
attributable to new employees and retained employees as
certified by the Department of Commerce and Economic
Opportunity pursuant to an agreement with the taxpayer under
the Reimagining Electric Vehicles in Illinois Act for the
taxable year. The credit or credits may not reduce the
taxpayer's obligation for any payment due under this Section
to less than zero. If the amount of the credit or credits
exceeds the total payments due under this Section with respect
to amounts withheld during the quarterly reporting period, the
excess may be carried forward and applied against the
taxpayer's liability under this Section in the succeeding
quarterly reporting period as allowed to be carried forward
under paragraph (4) of Section 211 of this Act. The credit or
credits shall be applied to the earliest quarterly reporting
period for which there is a tax liability. If there are credits
from more than one quarterly reporting period that are
available to offset a liability, the earlier credit shall be
applied first. Each employer who deducts and withholds or is
required to deduct and withhold tax under this Act and who
retains income tax withholdings this subsection must make a
return with respect to such taxes and retained amounts in the
form and manner that the Department, by rule, requires and pay
to the Department or to a depositary designated by the
Department those withheld taxes not retained by the taxpayer.
For purposes of this subsection (g-1), the term taxpayer shall
include taxpayer and members of the taxpayer's unitary
business group as defined under paragraph (27) of subsection
(a) of Section 1501 of this Act. This Section is exempt from
the provisions of Section 250 of this Act.
(h) An employer may claim a credit against payments due
under this Section for amounts withheld during the first
calendar year ending after the date on which a tax credit
certificate was issued under Section 35 of the Small Business
Job Creation Tax Credit Act. The credit shall be equal to the
amount shown on the certificate, but may not reduce the
taxpayer's obligation for any payment due under this Section
to less than zero. If the amount of the credit exceeds the
total payments due under this Section with respect to amounts
withheld during the calendar year, the excess may be carried
forward and applied against the taxpayer's liability under
this Section in the 5 succeeding calendar years. The credit
shall be applied to the earliest year for which there is a tax
liability. If there are credits from more than one calendar
year that are available to offset a liability, the earlier
credit shall be applied first. This Section is exempt from the
provisions of Section 250 of this Act.
(i) Each employer with 50 or fewer full-time equivalent
employees during the reporting period may claim a credit
against the payments due under this Section for each qualified
employee in an amount equal to the maximum credit allowable.
The credit may be taken against payments due for reporting
periods that begin on or after January 1, 2020, and end on or
before December 31, 2027. An employer may not claim a credit
for an employee who has worked fewer than 90 consecutive days
immediately preceding the reporting period; however, such
credits may accrue during that 90-day period and be claimed
against payments under this Section for future reporting
periods after the employee has worked for the employer at
least 90 consecutive days. In no event may the credit exceed
the employer's liability for the reporting period. Each
employer who deducts and withholds or is required to deduct
and withhold tax under this Act and who retains income tax
withholdings under this subsection must make a return with
respect to such taxes and retained amounts in the form and
manner that the Department, by rule, requires and pay to the
Department or to a depositary designated by the Department
those withheld taxes not retained by the employer.
For each reporting period, the employer may not claim a
credit or credits for more employees than the number of
employees making less than the minimum or reduced wage for the
current calendar year during the last reporting period of the
preceding calendar year. Notwithstanding any other provision
of this subsection, an employer shall not be eligible for
credits for a reporting period unless the average wage paid by
the employer per employee for all employees making less than
$55,000 during the reporting period is greater than the
average wage paid by the employer per employee for all
employees making less than $55,000 during the same reporting
period of the prior calendar year.
For purposes of this subsection (i):
"Compensation paid in Illinois" has the meaning ascribed
to that term under Section 304(a)(2)(B) of this Act.
"Employer" and "employee" have the meaning ascribed to
those terms in the Minimum Wage Law, except that "employee"
also includes employees who work for an employer with fewer
than 4 employees. Employers that operate more than one
establishment pursuant to a franchise agreement or that
constitute members of a unitary business group shall aggregate
their employees for purposes of determining eligibility for
the credit.
"Full-time equivalent employees" means the ratio of the
number of paid hours during the reporting period and the
number of working hours in that period.
"Maximum credit" means the percentage listed below of the
difference between the amount of compensation paid in Illinois
to employees who are paid not more than the required minimum
wage reduced by the amount of compensation paid in Illinois to
employees who were paid less than the current required minimum
wage during the reporting period prior to each increase in the
required minimum wage on January 1. If an employer pays an
employee more than the required minimum wage and that employee
previously earned less than the required minimum wage, the
employer may include the portion that does not exceed the
required minimum wage as compensation paid in Illinois to
employees who are paid not more than the required minimum
wage.
(1) 25% for reporting periods beginning on or after
January 1, 2020 and ending on or before December 31, 2020;
(2) 21% for reporting periods beginning on or after
January 1, 2021 and ending on or before December 31, 2021;
(3) 17% for reporting periods beginning on or after
January 1, 2022 and ending on or before December 31, 2022;
(4) 13% for reporting periods beginning on or after
January 1, 2023 and ending on or before December 31, 2023;
(5) 9% for reporting periods beginning on or after
January 1, 2024 and ending on or before December 31, 2024;
(6) 5% for reporting periods beginning on or after
January 1, 2025 and ending on or before December 31, 2025.
The amount computed under this subsection may continue to
be claimed for reporting periods beginning on or after January
1, 2026 and:
(A) ending on or before December 31, 2026 for
employers with more than 5 employees; or
(B) ending on or before December 31, 2027 for
employers with no more than 5 employees.
"Qualified employee" means an employee who is paid not
more than the required minimum wage and has an average wage
paid per hour by the employer during the reporting period
equal to or greater than his or her average wage paid per hour
by the employer during each reporting period for the
immediately preceding 12 months. A new qualified employee is
deemed to have earned the required minimum wage in the
preceding reporting period.
"Reporting period" means the quarter for which a return is
required to be filed under subsection (b) of this Section.
(j) For reporting periods beginning on or after January 1,
2023, if a private employer grants all of its employees the
option of taking a paid leave of absence of at least 30 days
for the purpose of serving as an organ donor or bone marrow
donor, then the private employer may take a credit against the
payments due under this Section in an amount equal to the
amount withheld under this Section with respect to wages paid
while the employee is on organ donation leave, not to exceed
$1,000 in withholdings for each employee who takes organ
donation leave. To be eligible for the credit, such a leave of
absence must be taken without loss of pay, vacation time,
compensatory time, personal days, or sick time for at least
the first 30 days of the leave of absence. The private employer
shall adopt rules governing organ donation leave, including
rules that (i) establish conditions and procedures for
requesting and approving leave and (ii) require medical
documentation of the proposed organ or bone marrow donation
before leave is approved by the private employer. A private
employer must provide, in the manner required by the
Department, documentation from the employee's medical
provider, which the private employer receives from the
employee, that verifies the employee's organ donation. The
private employer must also provide, in the manner required by
the Department, documentation that shows that a qualifying
organ donor leave policy was in place and offered to all
qualifying employees at the time the leave was taken. For the
private employer to receive the tax credit, the employee
taking organ donor leave must allow for the applicable medical
records to be disclosed to the Department. If the private
employer cannot provide the required documentation to the
Department, then the private employer is ineligible for the
credit under this Section. A private employer must also
provide, in the form required by the Department, any
additional documentation or information required by the
Department to administer the credit under this Section. The
credit under this subsection (j) shall be taken within one
year after the date upon which the organ donation leave
begins. If the leave taken spans into a second tax year, the
employer qualifies for the allowable credit in the later of
the 2 years. If the amount of credit exceeds the tax liability
for the year, the excess may be carried and applied to the tax
liability for the 3 taxable years following the excess credit
year. The tax credit shall be applied to the earliest year for
which there is a tax liability. If there are credits for more
than one year that are available to offset liability, the
earlier credit shall be applied first.
Nothing in this subsection (j) prohibits a private
employer from providing an unpaid leave of absence to its
employees for the purpose of serving as an organ donor or bone
marrow donor; however, if the employer's policy provides for
fewer than 30 days of paid leave for organ or bone marrow
donation, then the employer shall not be eligible for the
credit under this Section.
As used in this subsection (j):
"Organ" means any biological tissue of the human body
that may be donated by a living donor, including, but not
limited to, the kidney, liver, lung, pancreas, intestine,
bone, skin, or any subpart of those organs.
"Organ donor" means a person from whose body an organ
is taken to be transferred to the body of another person.
"Private employer" means a sole proprietorship,
corporation, partnership, limited liability company, or
other entity with one or more employees. "Private
employer" does not include a municipality, county, State
agency, or other public employer.
This subsection (j) is exempt from the provisions of
Section 250 of this Act.

taxpayer's liability to less than zero, or (2) $300 per
principal residence. The Department shall develop a process to
claim a rebate for taxpayers who otherwise would be eligible

means-tested benefit program administered by a governmental
entity unless required by federal law.
(h) Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, the

taxable year that began on January 1, 2021 and whose adjusted
gross income for the taxable year is less than (i) $400,000, in
the case of spouses filing a joint federal tax return, or (ii)
$200,000, in the case of all other taxpayers, is entitled to a

shall be $50 for single filers and $100 for spouses filing a
joint return, plus an additional $100 for each person who is
claimed as a dependent, up to 3 dependents, on the taxpayer's
federal income tax return for the taxable year that began on
January 1, 2021. A taxpayer who files an individual income tax
return under this Act for the taxable year that began on
January 1, 2021, and who is claimed as a dependent on another
individual's return for that year, is ineligible for the
rebate provided under this Section. Spouses who qualify for a
rebate under this Section and who file a joint return shall be
treated as a single taxpayer for the purposes of the rebate
under this Section. For a part-year resident, the amount of
the rebate under this Section shall be in proportion to the
amount of the taxpayer's income that is attributable to this
State for the taxable year that began on January 1, 2021.
Taxpayers who were non-residents for the taxable year that

this Section.
(b) Beginning on July 5, 2022, the Department shall
certify to the Comptroller the names of the taxpayers who are
eligible for a one-time rebate under this Section, the amounts
of those rebates, and any other information that the

provided under this Section to taxpayers.
(c) If a taxpayer files an amended return indicating that
the taxpayer is entitled to a rebate under this Section that
the taxpayer did not receive, or indicating that the taxpayer
did not receive the full rebate amount to which the taxpayer is
entitled, then the rebate shall be processed in the same
manner as a claim for refund under Article 9. If the taxpayer
files an amended return indicating that the taxpayer received
a rebate under this Section to which the taxpayer is not
entitled, then the Department shall issue a notice of
deficiency as provided in Article 9.
(d) The Department shall make the rebate payments
authorized by this Section from the Income Tax Refund Fund.
(e) The amount of a rebate under this Section shall not be
included in the taxpayer's income or resources for the
purposes of determining eligibility or benefit level in any
means-tested benefit program administered by a governmental
entity unless required by federal law.
(f) Nothing in this Section prevents a taxpayer from
receiving the earned income tax credit and the rebate under
this Section for the same taxable year.
(g) Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, the
rebates shall not be subject to offset by the Comptroller
against any liability owed either to the State or to any unit
of local government.
(h) The Department shall adopt rules for the
implementation of this Section, including emergency rules
under Section 5-45.21 of the Illinois Administrative Procedure
Act.

paid into the General Revenue Fund in the State treasury;
money collected pursuant to subsections (c) and (d) of Section
201 of this Act shall be paid into the Personal Property Tax
Replacement Fund, a special fund in the State Treasury; and

special fund outside the State Treasury, or to the State
Disbursement Unit established under Section 10-26 of the
Illinois Public Aid Code, as directed by the Department of
Healthcare and Family Services.
(b) Local Government Distributive Fund. Beginning August
1, 2017, the Treasurer shall transfer each month from the
General Revenue Fund to the Local Government Distributive Fund
an amount equal to the sum of: (i) 6.06% (10% of the ratio of
the 3% individual income tax rate prior to 2011 to the 4.95%
individual income tax rate after July 1, 2017) of the net
revenue realized from the tax imposed by subsections (a) and
(b) of Section 201 of this Act upon individuals, trusts, and
estates during the preceding month; (ii) 6.85% (10% of the
ratio of the 4.8% corporate income tax rate prior to 2011 to
the 7% corporate income tax rate after July 1, 2017) of the net
revenue realized from the tax imposed by subsections (a) and
(b) of Section 201 of this Act upon corporations during the
preceding month; and (iii) beginning February 1, 2022, 6.06%
of the net revenue realized from the tax imposed by subsection
(p) of Section 201 of this Act upon electing pass-through
entities. Net revenue realized for a month shall be defined as
the revenue from the tax imposed by subsections (a) and (b) of
Section 201 of this Act which is deposited in the General
Revenue Fund, the Education Assistance Fund, the Income Tax
Surcharge Local Government Distributive Fund, the Fund for the
Advancement of Education, and the Commitment to Human Services
Fund during the month minus the amount paid out of the General
Revenue Fund in State warrants during that same month as
refunds to taxpayers for overpayment of liability under the
tax imposed by subsections (a) and (b) of Section 201 of this
Act.
Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary,
beginning on July 6, 2017 (the effective date of Public Act
100-23), those amounts required under this subsection (b) to
be transferred by the Treasurer into the Local Government
Distributive Fund from the General Revenue Fund shall be
directly deposited into the Local Government Distributive Fund
as the revenue is realized from the tax imposed by subsections
(a) and (b) of Section 201 of this Act.
(c) Deposits Into Income Tax Refund Fund.
(1) Beginning on January 1, 1989 and thereafter, the
Department shall deposit a percentage of the amounts
collected pursuant to subsections (a) and (b)(1), (2), and
(3) of Section 201 of this Act into a fund in the State
treasury known as the Income Tax Refund Fund. Beginning
with State fiscal year 1990 and for each fiscal year
thereafter, the percentage deposited into the Income Tax
Refund Fund during a fiscal year shall be the Annual

refunds approved for payment by the Department during the
preceding fiscal year as a result of overpayment of tax
liability under subsections (a) and (b)(1), (2), and (3)
of Section 201 of this Act plus the amount of such refunds
remaining approved but unpaid at the end of the preceding

Section 60-15. The Use Tax Act is amended by changing
Sections 3-10, 3a, and 9 as follows:
(35 ILCS 105/3-10)
Sec. 3-10. Rate of tax. Unless otherwise provided in this
Section, the tax imposed by this Act is at the rate of 6.25% of
either the selling price or the fair market value, if any, of
the tangible personal property. In all cases where property
functionally used or consumed is the same as the property that
was purchased at retail, then the tax is imposed on the selling
price of the property. In all cases where property
functionally used or consumed is a by-product or waste product
that has been refined, manufactured, or produced from property
purchased at retail, then the tax is imposed on the lower of
the fair market value, if any, of the specific property so used
in this State or on the selling price of the property purchased
at retail. For purposes of this Section "fair market value"
means the price at which property would change hands between a
willing buyer and a willing seller, neither being under any
compulsion to buy or sell and both having reasonable knowledge
of the relevant facts. The fair market value shall be
established by Illinois sales by the taxpayer of the same
property as that functionally used or consumed, or if there
are no such sales by the taxpayer, then comparable sales or
purchases of property of like kind and character in Illinois.

Beginning on August 6, 2010 through August 15, 2010, with
respect to sales tax holiday items as defined in Section 3-6 of
this Act, the tax is imposed at the rate of 1.25%.
With respect to gasohol, the tax imposed by this Act
applies to (i) 70% of the proceeds of sales made on or after
January 1, 1990, and before July 1, 2003, (ii) 80% of the
proceeds of sales made on or after July 1, 2003 and on or
before July 1, 2017, and (iii) 100% of the proceeds of sales
made thereafter. If, at any time, however, the tax under this
Act on sales of gasohol is imposed at the rate of 1.25%, then
the tax imposed by this Act applies to 100% of the proceeds of

(35 ILCS 105/9) (from Ch. 120, par. 439.9)
Sec. 9. Except as to motor vehicles, watercraft, aircraft,
and trailers that are required to be registered with an agency
of this State, each retailer required or authorized to collect
the tax imposed by this Act shall pay to the Department the
amount of such tax (except as otherwise provided) at the time
when he is required to file his return for the period during
which such tax was collected, less a discount of 2.1% prior to
January 1, 1990, and 1.75% on and after January 1, 1990, or $5
per calendar year, whichever is greater, which is allowed to
reimburse the retailer for expenses incurred in collecting the
tax, keeping records, preparing and filing returns, remitting
the tax and supplying data to the Department on request. The
discount under this Section is not allowed for the 1.25%
portion of taxes paid on aviation fuel that is subject to the
revenue use requirements of 49 U.S.C. 47107(b) and 49 U.S.C.
47133. When determining the discount allowed under this
Section, retailers shall include the amount of tax that would
have been due at the 1% rate but for the 0% rate imposed under
this amendatory Act of the 102nd General Assembly. In the case
of retailers who report and pay the tax on a transaction by
transaction basis, as provided in this Section, such discount
shall be taken with each such tax remittance instead of when
such retailer files his periodic return. The discount allowed
under this Section is allowed only for returns that are filed
in the manner required by this Act. The Department may
disallow the discount for retailers whose certificate of
registration is revoked at the time the return is filed, but
only if the Department's decision to revoke the certificate of
registration has become final. A retailer need not remit that
part of any tax collected by him to the extent that he is
required to remit and does remit the tax imposed by the
Retailers' Occupation Tax Act, with respect to the sale of the
same property.
Where such tangible personal property is sold under a
conditional sales contract, or under any other form of sale
wherein the payment of the principal sum, or a part thereof, is
extended beyond the close of the period for which the return is
filed, the retailer, in collecting the tax (except as to motor
vehicles, watercraft, aircraft, and trailers that are required
to be registered with an agency of this State), may collect for
each tax return period, only the tax applicable to that part of
the selling price actually received during such tax return
period.
Except as provided in this Section, on or before the
twentieth day of each calendar month, such retailer shall file
a return for the preceding calendar month. Such return shall
be filed on forms prescribed by the Department and shall
furnish such information as the Department may reasonably
require. The return shall include the gross receipts on food
for human consumption that is to be consumed off the premises
where it is sold (other than alcoholic beverages, food
consisting of or infused with adult use cannabis, soft drinks,
and food that has been prepared for immediate consumption)
which were received during the preceding calendar month,
quarter, or year, as appropriate, and upon which tax would
have been due but for the 0% rate imposed under this amendatory
Act of the 102nd General Assembly. The return shall also
include the amount of tax that would have been due on food for
human consumption that is to be consumed off the premises
where it is sold (other than alcoholic beverages, food
consisting of or infused with adult use cannabis, soft drinks,
and food that has been prepared for immediate consumption) but
for the 0% rate imposed under this amendatory Act of the 102nd
General Assembly.
On and after January 1, 2018, except for returns for motor
vehicles, watercraft, aircraft, and trailers that are required
to be registered with an agency of this State, with respect to
retailers whose annual gross receipts average $20,000 or more,
all returns required to be filed pursuant to this Act shall be
filed electronically. Retailers who demonstrate that they do
not have access to the Internet or demonstrate hardship in
filing electronically may petition the Department to waive the
electronic filing requirement.
The Department may require returns to be filed on a
quarterly basis. If so required, a return for each calendar
quarter shall be filed on or before the twentieth day of the
calendar month following the end of such calendar quarter. The
taxpayer shall also file a return with the Department for each
of the first two months of each calendar quarter, on or before
the twentieth day of the following calendar month, stating:
1. The name of the seller;
2. The address of the principal place of business from
which he engages in the business of selling tangible
personal property at retail in this State;
3. The total amount of taxable receipts received by
him during the preceding calendar month from sales of
tangible personal property by him during such preceding
calendar month, including receipts from charge and time
sales, but less all deductions allowed by law;
4. The amount of credit provided in Section 2d of this
Act;
5. The amount of tax due;
5-5. The signature of the taxpayer; and
6. Such other reasonable information as the Department
may require.
Each retailer required or authorized to collect the tax
imposed by this Act on aviation fuel sold at retail in this
State during the preceding calendar month shall, instead of
reporting and paying tax on aviation fuel as otherwise
required by this Section, report and pay such tax on a separate
aviation fuel tax return. The requirements related to the
return shall be as otherwise provided in this Section.
Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Act to the
contrary, retailers collecting tax on aviation fuel shall file
all aviation fuel tax returns and shall make all aviation fuel
tax payments by electronic means in the manner and form
required by the Department. For purposes of this Section,
"aviation fuel" means jet fuel and aviation gasoline.
If a taxpayer fails to sign a return within 30 days after
the proper notice and demand for signature by the Department,
the return shall be considered valid and any amount shown to be
due on the return shall be deemed assessed.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Act to the
contrary, retailers subject to tax on cannabis shall file all
cannabis tax returns and shall make all cannabis tax payments
by electronic means in the manner and form required by the
Department.
Beginning October 1, 1993, a taxpayer who has an average
monthly tax liability of $150,000 or more shall make all
payments required by rules of the Department by electronic
funds transfer. Beginning October 1, 1994, a taxpayer who has
an average monthly tax liability of $100,000 or more shall
make all payments required by rules of the Department by
electronic funds transfer. Beginning October 1, 1995, a
taxpayer who has an average monthly tax liability of $50,000
or more shall make all payments required by rules of the
Department by electronic funds transfer. Beginning October 1,
2000, a taxpayer who has an annual tax liability of $200,000 or
more shall make all payments required by rules of the
Department by electronic funds transfer. The term "annual tax
liability" shall be the sum of the taxpayer's liabilities
under this Act, and under all other State and local occupation
and use tax laws administered by the Department, for the
immediately preceding calendar year. The term "average monthly
tax liability" means the sum of the taxpayer's liabilities
under this Act, and under all other State and local occupation
and use tax laws administered by the Department, for the
immediately preceding calendar year divided by 12. Beginning
on October 1, 2002, a taxpayer who has a tax liability in the
amount set forth in subsection (b) of Section 2505-210 of the
Department of Revenue Law shall make all payments required by
rules of the Department by electronic funds transfer.
Before August 1 of each year beginning in 1993, the
Department shall notify all taxpayers required to make
payments by electronic funds transfer. All taxpayers required
to make payments by electronic funds transfer shall make those
payments for a minimum of one year beginning on October 1.
Any taxpayer not required to make payments by electronic
funds transfer may make payments by electronic funds transfer
with the permission of the Department.
All taxpayers required to make payment by electronic funds
transfer and any taxpayers authorized to voluntarily make
payments by electronic funds transfer shall make those
payments in the manner authorized by the Department.
The Department shall adopt such rules as are necessary to
effectuate a program of electronic funds transfer and the
requirements of this Section.
Before October 1, 2000, if the taxpayer's average monthly
tax liability to the Department under this Act, the Retailers'
Occupation Tax Act, the Service Occupation Tax Act, the
Service Use Tax Act was $10,000 or more during the preceding 4
complete calendar quarters, he shall file a return with the
Department each month by the 20th day of the month next
following the month during which such tax liability is
incurred and shall make payments to the Department on or
before the 7th, 15th, 22nd and last day of the month during
which such liability is incurred. On and after October 1,
2000, if the taxpayer's average monthly tax liability to the
Department under this Act, the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act,
the Service Occupation Tax Act, and the Service Use Tax Act was
$20,000 or more during the preceding 4 complete calendar
quarters, he shall file a return with the Department each
month by the 20th day of the month next following the month
during which such tax liability is incurred and shall make
payment to the Department on or before the 7th, 15th, 22nd and
last day of the month during which such liability is incurred.
If the month during which such tax liability is incurred began
prior to January 1, 1985, each payment shall be in an amount
equal to 1/4 of the taxpayer's actual liability for the month
or an amount set by the Department not to exceed 1/4 of the
average monthly liability of the taxpayer to the Department
for the preceding 4 complete calendar quarters (excluding the
month of highest liability and the month of lowest liability
in such 4 quarter period). If the month during which such tax
liability is incurred begins on or after January 1, 1985, and
prior to January 1, 1987, each payment shall be in an amount
equal to 22.5% of the taxpayer's actual liability for the
month or 27.5% of the taxpayer's liability for the same
calendar month of the preceding year. If the month during
which such tax liability is incurred begins on or after
January 1, 1987, and prior to January 1, 1988, each payment
shall be in an amount equal to 22.5% of the taxpayer's actual
liability for the month or 26.25% of the taxpayer's liability
for the same calendar month of the preceding year. If the month
during which such tax liability is incurred begins on or after
January 1, 1988, and prior to January 1, 1989, or begins on or
after January 1, 1996, each payment shall be in an amount equal
to 22.5% of the taxpayer's actual liability for the month or
25% of the taxpayer's liability for the same calendar month of
the preceding year. If the month during which such tax
liability is incurred begins on or after January 1, 1989, and
prior to January 1, 1996, each payment shall be in an amount
equal to 22.5% of the taxpayer's actual liability for the
month or 25% of the taxpayer's liability for the same calendar
month of the preceding year or 100% of the taxpayer's actual
liability for the quarter monthly reporting period. The amount
of such quarter monthly payments shall be credited against the
final tax liability of the taxpayer's return for that month.
Before October 1, 2000, once applicable, the requirement of
the making of quarter monthly payments to the Department shall
continue until such taxpayer's average monthly liability to
the Department during the preceding 4 complete calendar
quarters (excluding the month of highest liability and the
month of lowest liability) is less than $9,000, or until such
taxpayer's average monthly liability to the Department as
computed for each calendar quarter of the 4 preceding complete
calendar quarter period is less than $10,000. However, if a
taxpayer can show the Department that a substantial change in
the taxpayer's business has occurred which causes the taxpayer
to anticipate that his average monthly tax liability for the
reasonably foreseeable future will fall below the $10,000
threshold stated above, then such taxpayer may petition the
Department for change in such taxpayer's reporting status. On
and after October 1, 2000, once applicable, the requirement of
the making of quarter monthly payments to the Department shall
continue until such taxpayer's average monthly liability to
the Department during the preceding 4 complete calendar
quarters (excluding the month of highest liability and the
month of lowest liability) is less than $19,000 or until such
taxpayer's average monthly liability to the Department as
computed for each calendar quarter of the 4 preceding complete
calendar quarter period is less than $20,000. However, if a
taxpayer can show the Department that a substantial change in
the taxpayer's business has occurred which causes the taxpayer
to anticipate that his average monthly tax liability for the
reasonably foreseeable future will fall below the $20,000
threshold stated above, then such taxpayer may petition the
Department for a change in such taxpayer's reporting status.
The Department shall change such taxpayer's reporting status
unless it finds that such change is seasonal in nature and not
likely to be long term. Quarter monthly payment status shall
be determined under this paragraph as if the rate reduction to
0% in this amendatory Act of the 102nd General Assembly on food
for human consumption that is to be consumed off the premises
where it is sold (other than alcoholic beverages, food
consisting of or infused with adult use cannabis, soft drinks,
and food that has been prepared for immediate consumption) had
not occurred. For quarter monthly payments due under this
paragraph on or after July 1, 2023 and through June 30, 2024,
"25% of the taxpayer's liability for the same calendar month
of the preceding year" shall be determined as if the rate
reduction to 0% in this amendatory Act of the 102nd General
Assembly had not occurred. If any such quarter monthly payment
is not paid at the time or in the amount required by this
Section, then the taxpayer shall be liable for penalties and
interest on the difference between the minimum amount due and
the amount of such quarter monthly payment actually and timely
paid, except insofar as the taxpayer has previously made
payments for that month to the Department in excess of the
minimum payments previously due as provided in this Section.
The Department shall make reasonable rules and regulations to
govern the quarter monthly payment amount and quarter monthly
payment dates for taxpayers who file on other than a calendar
monthly basis.
If any such payment provided for in this Section exceeds
the taxpayer's liabilities under this Act, the Retailers'
Occupation Tax Act, the Service Occupation Tax Act and the
Service Use Tax Act, as shown by an original monthly return,
the Department shall issue to the taxpayer a credit memorandum
no later than 30 days after the date of payment, which
memorandum may be submitted by the taxpayer to the Department
in payment of tax liability subsequently to be remitted by the
taxpayer to the Department or be assigned by the taxpayer to a
similar taxpayer under this Act, the Retailers' Occupation Tax
Act, the Service Occupation Tax Act or the Service Use Tax Act,
in accordance with reasonable rules and regulations to be
prescribed by the Department, except that if such excess
payment is shown on an original monthly return and is made
after December 31, 1986, no credit memorandum shall be issued,
unless requested by the taxpayer. If no such request is made,
the taxpayer may credit such excess payment against tax
liability subsequently to be remitted by the taxpayer to the
Department under this Act, the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act,
the Service Occupation Tax Act or the Service Use Tax Act, in
accordance with reasonable rules and regulations prescribed by
the Department. If the Department subsequently determines that
all or any part of the credit taken was not actually due to the
taxpayer, the taxpayer's 2.1% or 1.75% vendor's discount shall
be reduced by 2.1% or 1.75% of the difference between the
credit taken and that actually due, and the taxpayer shall be
liable for penalties and interest on such difference.
If the retailer is otherwise required to file a monthly
return and if the retailer's average monthly tax liability to
the Department does not exceed $200, the Department may
authorize his returns to be filed on a quarter annual basis,
with the return for January, February, and March of a given
year being due by April 20 of such year; with the return for
April, May and June of a given year being due by July 20 of
such year; with the return for July, August and September of a
given year being due by October 20 of such year, and with the
return for October, November and December of a given year
being due by January 20 of the following year.
If the retailer is otherwise required to file a monthly or
quarterly return and if the retailer's average monthly tax
liability to the Department does not exceed $50, the
Department may authorize his returns to be filed on an annual
basis, with the return for a given year being due by January 20
of the following year.
Such quarter annual and annual returns, as to form and
substance, shall be subject to the same requirements as
monthly returns.
Notwithstanding any other provision in this Act concerning
the time within which a retailer may file his return, in the
case of any retailer who ceases to engage in a kind of business
which makes him responsible for filing returns under this Act,
such retailer shall file a final return under this Act with the
Department not more than one month after discontinuing such
business.
In addition, with respect to motor vehicles, watercraft,
aircraft, and trailers that are required to be registered with
an agency of this State, except as otherwise provided in this
Section, every retailer selling this kind of tangible personal
property shall file, with the Department, upon a form to be
prescribed and supplied by the Department, a separate return
for each such item of tangible personal property which the
retailer sells, except that if, in the same transaction, (i) a
retailer of aircraft, watercraft, motor vehicles or trailers
transfers more than one aircraft, watercraft, motor vehicle or
trailer to another aircraft, watercraft, motor vehicle or
trailer retailer for the purpose of resale or (ii) a retailer
of aircraft, watercraft, motor vehicles, or trailers transfers
more than one aircraft, watercraft, motor vehicle, or trailer
to a purchaser for use as a qualifying rolling stock as
provided in Section 3-55 of this Act, then that seller may
report the transfer of all the aircraft, watercraft, motor
vehicles or trailers involved in that transaction to the
Department on the same uniform invoice-transaction reporting
return form. For purposes of this Section, "watercraft" means
a Class 2, Class 3, or Class 4 watercraft as defined in Section
3-2 of the Boat Registration and Safety Act, a personal
watercraft, or any boat equipped with an inboard motor.
In addition, with respect to motor vehicles, watercraft,
aircraft, and trailers that are required to be registered with
an agency of this State, every person who is engaged in the
business of leasing or renting such items and who, in
connection with such business, sells any such item to a
retailer for the purpose of resale is, notwithstanding any
other provision of this Section to the contrary, authorized to
meet the return-filing requirement of this Act by reporting
the transfer of all the aircraft, watercraft, motor vehicles,
or trailers transferred for resale during a month to the
Department on the same uniform invoice-transaction reporting
return form on or before the 20th of the month following the
month in which the transfer takes place. Notwithstanding any
other provision of this Act to the contrary, all returns filed
under this paragraph must be filed by electronic means in the
manner and form as required by the Department.
The transaction reporting return in the case of motor
vehicles or trailers that are required to be registered with
an agency of this State, shall be the same document as the
Uniform Invoice referred to in Section 5-402 of the Illinois
Vehicle Code and must show the name and address of the seller;
the name and address of the purchaser; the amount of the
selling price including the amount allowed by the retailer for
traded-in property, if any; the amount allowed by the retailer
for the traded-in tangible personal property, if any, to the
extent to which Section 2 of this Act allows an exemption for
the value of traded-in property; the balance payable after
deducting such trade-in allowance from the total selling
price; the amount of tax due from the retailer with respect to
such transaction; the amount of tax collected from the
purchaser by the retailer on such transaction (or satisfactory
evidence that such tax is not due in that particular instance,
if that is claimed to be the fact); the place and date of the
sale; a sufficient identification of the property sold; such
other information as is required in Section 5-402 of the
Illinois Vehicle Code, and such other information as the
Department may reasonably require.
The transaction reporting return in the case of watercraft
and aircraft must show the name and address of the seller; the
name and address of the purchaser; the amount of the selling
price including the amount allowed by the retailer for
traded-in property, if any; the amount allowed by the retailer
for the traded-in tangible personal property, if any, to the
extent to which Section 2 of this Act allows an exemption for
the value of traded-in property; the balance payable after
deducting such trade-in allowance from the total selling
price; the amount of tax due from the retailer with respect to
such transaction; the amount of tax collected from the
purchaser by the retailer on such transaction (or satisfactory
evidence that such tax is not due in that particular instance,
if that is claimed to be the fact); the place and date of the
sale, a sufficient identification of the property sold, and
such other information as the Department may reasonably
require.
Such transaction reporting return shall be filed not later
than 20 days after the date of delivery of the item that is
being sold, but may be filed by the retailer at any time sooner
than that if he chooses to do so. The transaction reporting
return and tax remittance or proof of exemption from the tax
that is imposed by this Act 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 titling or registration is required)
if the Department and such agency or State officer determine
that this procedure will expedite the processing of
applications for title or registration.
With each such transaction reporting return, the retailer
shall remit the proper amount of tax due (or shall submit
satisfactory evidence that the sale is not taxable if that is
the case), to the Department or its agents, whereupon the
Department shall issue, in the purchaser's name, a tax receipt
(or a certificate of exemption if the Department is satisfied
that the particular sale is tax exempt) which such purchaser
may submit to the agency with which, or State officer with
whom, he must title or register the tangible personal property
that is involved (if titling or registration is required) in
support of such purchaser's application for an Illinois
certificate or other evidence of title or registration to such
tangible personal property.
No retailer's failure or refusal to remit tax under this
Act precludes a user, who has paid the proper tax to the
retailer, from obtaining his certificate of title or other
evidence of title or registration (if titling or registration
is required) upon satisfying the Department that such user has
paid the proper tax (if tax is due) to the retailer. The
Department shall adopt appropriate rules to carry out the
mandate of this paragraph.
If the user who would otherwise pay tax to the retailer
wants the transaction reporting return filed and the payment
of tax or proof of exemption made to the Department before the
retailer is willing to take these actions and such user has not
paid the tax to the retailer, such user may certify to the fact
of such delay by the retailer, and may (upon the Department
being satisfied of the truth of such certification) transmit
the information required by the transaction reporting return
and the remittance for tax or proof of exemption directly to
the Department and obtain his tax receipt or exemption
determination, in which event the transaction reporting return
and tax remittance (if a tax payment was required) shall be
credited by the Department to the proper retailer's account
with the Department, but without the 2.1% or 1.75% discount
provided for in this Section being allowed. When the user pays
the tax directly to the Department, he shall pay the tax in the
same amount and in the same form in which it would be remitted
if the tax had been remitted to the Department by the retailer.
Where a retailer collects the tax with respect to the
selling price of tangible personal property which he sells and
the purchaser thereafter returns such tangible personal
property and the retailer refunds the selling price thereof to
the purchaser, such retailer shall also refund, to the
purchaser, the tax so collected from the purchaser. When
filing his return for the period in which he refunds such tax
to the purchaser, the retailer may deduct the amount of the tax
so refunded by him to the purchaser from any other use tax
which such retailer may be required to pay or remit to the
Department, as shown by such return, if the amount of the tax
to be deducted was previously remitted to the Department by
such retailer. If the retailer has not previously remitted the
amount of such tax to the Department, he is entitled to no
deduction under this Act upon refunding such tax to the
purchaser.
Any retailer filing a return under this Section shall also
include (for the purpose of paying tax thereon) the total tax
covered by such return upon the selling price of tangible
personal property purchased by him at retail from a retailer,
but as to which the tax imposed by this Act was not collected
from the retailer filing such return, and such retailer shall
remit the amount of such tax to the Department when filing such
return.
If experience indicates such action to be practicable, the
Department may prescribe and furnish a combination or joint
return which will enable retailers, who are required to file
returns hereunder and also under the Retailers' Occupation Tax
Act, to furnish all the return information required by both
Acts on the one form.
Where the retailer has more than one business registered
with the Department under separate registration under this
Act, such retailer may not file each return that is due as a
single return covering all such registered businesses, but
shall file separate returns for each such registered business.
Beginning January 1, 1990, each month the Department shall
pay into the State and Local Sales Tax Reform Fund, a special

personal property which is purchased outside Illinois at
retail from a retailer and which is titled or registered by an
agency of this State's government and (ii) aviation fuel sold
on or after December 1, 2019. This exception for aviation fuel

For aviation fuel sold on or after December 1, 2019, each
month the Department shall pay into the State Aviation Program
Fund 20% of the net revenue realized for the preceding month
from the 6.25% general rate on the selling price of aviation
fuel, less an amount estimated by the Department to be
required for refunds of the 20% portion of the tax on aviation
fuel under this Act, which amount shall be deposited into the
Aviation Fuel Sales Tax Refund Fund. The Department shall only
pay moneys into the State Aviation Program Fund and the
Aviation Fuels Sales Tax Refund Fund under this Act for so long
as the revenue use requirements of 49 U.S.C. 47107(b) and 49
U.S.C. 47133 are binding on the State.
Beginning August 1, 2000, each month the Department shall

(35 ILCS 110/9) (from Ch. 120, par. 439.39)
Sec. 9. Each serviceman required or authorized to collect
the tax herein imposed shall pay to the Department the amount
of such tax (except as otherwise provided) at the time when he
is required to file his return for the period during which such
tax was collected, less a discount of 2.1% prior to January 1,
1990 and 1.75% on and after January 1, 1990, or $5 per calendar
year, whichever is greater, which is allowed to reimburse the
serviceman for expenses incurred in collecting the tax,
keeping records, preparing and filing returns, remitting the
tax and supplying data to the Department on request. When
determining the discount allowed under this Section,
servicemen shall include the amount of tax that would have
been due at the 1% rate but for the 0% rate imposed under this
amendatory Act of the 102nd General Assembly. The discount
under this Section is not allowed for the 1.25% portion of
taxes paid on aviation fuel that is subject to the revenue use
requirements of 49 U.S.C. 47107(b) and 49 U.S.C. 47133. The
discount allowed under this Section is allowed only for
returns that are filed in the manner required by this Act. The
Department may disallow the discount for servicemen whose
certificate of registration is revoked at the time the return
is filed, but only if the Department's decision to revoke the
certificate of registration has become final. A serviceman
need not remit that part of any tax collected by him to the
extent that he is required to pay and does pay the tax imposed
by the Service Occupation Tax Act with respect to his sale of
service involving the incidental transfer by him of the same
property.
Except as provided hereinafter in this Section, on or
before the twentieth day of each calendar month, such
serviceman shall file a return for the preceding calendar
month in accordance with reasonable Rules and Regulations to
be promulgated by the Department. Such return shall be filed
on a form prescribed by the Department and shall contain such
information as the Department may reasonably require. The
return shall include the gross receipts which were received
during the preceding calendar month or quarter on the
following items upon which tax would have been due but for the
0% rate imposed under this amendatory Act of the 102nd General
Assembly: (i) food for human consumption that is to be
consumed off the premises where it is sold (other than
alcoholic beverages, food consisting of or infused with adult
use cannabis, soft drinks, and food that has been prepared for
immediate consumption); and (ii) food prepared for immediate
consumption and transferred incident to a sale of service
subject to this Act or the Service Occupation Tax Act by an
entity licensed under the Hospital Licensing Act, the Nursing
Home Care Act, the Assisted Living and Shared Housing Act, the
ID/DD Community Care Act, the MC/DD Act, the Specialized
Mental Health Rehabilitation Act of 2013, or the Child Care
Act of 1969, or an entity that holds a permit issued pursuant
to the Life Care Facilities Act. The return shall also include
the amount of tax that would have been due on the items listed
in the previous sentence but for the 0% rate imposed under this
amendatory Act of the 102nd General Assembly.
On and after January 1, 2018, with respect to servicemen
whose annual gross receipts average $20,000 or more, all
returns required to be filed pursuant to this Act shall be
filed electronically. Servicemen who demonstrate that they do
not have access to the Internet or demonstrate hardship in
filing electronically may petition the Department to waive the
electronic filing requirement.
The Department may require returns to be filed on a
quarterly basis. If so required, a return for each calendar
quarter shall be filed on or before the twentieth day of the
calendar month following the end of such calendar quarter. The
taxpayer shall also file a return with the Department for each
of the first two months of each calendar quarter, on or before
the twentieth day of the following calendar month, stating:
1. The name of the seller;
2. The address of the principal place of business from
which he engages in business as a serviceman in this
State;
3. The total amount of taxable receipts received by
him during the preceding calendar month, including
receipts from charge and time sales, but less all
deductions allowed by law;
4. The amount of credit provided in Section 2d of this
Act;
5. The amount of tax due;
5-5. The signature of the taxpayer; and
6. Such other reasonable information as the Department
may require.
Each serviceman required or authorized to collect the tax
imposed by this Act on aviation fuel transferred as an
incident of a sale of service in this State during the
preceding calendar month shall, instead of reporting and
paying tax on aviation fuel as otherwise required by this
Section, report and pay such tax on a separate aviation fuel
tax return. The requirements related to the return shall be as
otherwise provided in this Section. Notwithstanding any other
provisions of this Act to the contrary, servicemen collecting
tax on aviation fuel shall file all aviation fuel tax returns
and shall make all aviation fuel tax payments by electronic
means in the manner and form required by the Department. For
purposes of this Section, "aviation fuel" means jet fuel and
aviation gasoline.
If a taxpayer fails to sign a return within 30 days after
the proper notice and demand for signature by the Department,
the return shall be considered valid and any amount shown to be
due on the return shall be deemed assessed.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Act to the
contrary, servicemen subject to tax on cannabis shall file all
cannabis tax returns and shall make all cannabis tax payments
by electronic means in the manner and form required by the
Department.
Beginning October 1, 1993, a taxpayer who has an average
monthly tax liability of $150,000 or more shall make all
payments required by rules of the Department by electronic
funds transfer. Beginning October 1, 1994, a taxpayer who has
an average monthly tax liability of $100,000 or more shall
make all payments required by rules of the Department by
electronic funds transfer. Beginning October 1, 1995, a
taxpayer who has an average monthly tax liability of $50,000
or more shall make all payments required by rules of the
Department by electronic funds transfer. Beginning October 1,
2000, a taxpayer who has an annual tax liability of $200,000 or
more shall make all payments required by rules of the
Department by electronic funds transfer. The term "annual tax
liability" shall be the sum of the taxpayer's liabilities
under this Act, and under all other State and local occupation
and use tax laws administered by the Department, for the
immediately preceding calendar year. The term "average monthly
tax liability" means the sum of the taxpayer's liabilities
under this Act, and under all other State and local occupation
and use tax laws administered by the Department, for the
immediately preceding calendar year divided by 12. Beginning
on October 1, 2002, a taxpayer who has a tax liability in the
amount set forth in subsection (b) of Section 2505-210 of the
Department of Revenue Law shall make all payments required by
rules of the Department by electronic funds transfer.
Before August 1 of each year beginning in 1993, the
Department shall notify all taxpayers required to make
payments by electronic funds transfer. All taxpayers required
to make payments by electronic funds transfer shall make those
payments for a minimum of one year beginning on October 1.
Any taxpayer not required to make payments by electronic
funds transfer may make payments by electronic funds transfer
with the permission of the Department.
All taxpayers required to make payment by electronic funds
transfer and any taxpayers authorized to voluntarily make
payments by electronic funds transfer shall make those
payments in the manner authorized by the Department.
The Department shall adopt such rules as are necessary to
effectuate a program of electronic funds transfer and the
requirements of this Section.
If the serviceman is otherwise required to file a monthly
return and if the serviceman's average monthly tax liability
to the Department does not exceed $200, the Department may
authorize his returns to be filed on a quarter annual basis,
with the return for January, February and March of a given year
being due by April 20 of such year; with the return for April,
May and June of a given year being due by July 20 of such year;
with the return for July, August and September of a given year
being due by October 20 of such year, and with the return for
October, November and December of a given year being due by
January 20 of the following year.
If the serviceman is otherwise required to file a monthly
or quarterly return and if the serviceman's average monthly
tax liability to the Department does not exceed $50, the
Department may authorize his returns to be filed on an annual
basis, with the return for a given year being due by January 20
of the following year.
Such quarter annual and annual returns, as to form and
substance, shall be subject to the same requirements as
monthly returns.
Notwithstanding any other provision in this Act concerning
the time within which a serviceman may file his return, in the
case of any serviceman who ceases to engage in a kind of
business which makes him responsible for filing returns under
this Act, such serviceman shall file a final return under this
Act with the Department not more than 1 month after
discontinuing such business.
Where a serviceman collects the tax with respect to the
selling price of property which he sells and the purchaser
thereafter returns such property and the serviceman refunds
the selling price thereof to the purchaser, such serviceman
shall also refund, to the purchaser, the tax so collected from
the purchaser. When filing his return for the period in which
he refunds such tax to the purchaser, the serviceman may
deduct the amount of the tax so refunded by him to the
purchaser from any other Service Use Tax, Service Occupation
Tax, retailers' occupation tax or use tax which such
serviceman may be required to pay or remit to the Department,
as shown by such return, provided that the amount of the tax to
be deducted shall previously have been remitted to the
Department by such serviceman. If the serviceman shall not
previously have remitted the amount of such tax to the
Department, he shall be entitled to no deduction hereunder
upon refunding such tax to the purchaser.
Any serviceman filing a return hereunder shall also
include the total tax upon the selling price of tangible
personal property purchased for use by him as an incident to a
sale of service, and such serviceman shall remit the amount of
such tax to the Department when filing such return.
If experience indicates such action to be practicable, the
Department may prescribe and furnish a combination or joint
return which will enable servicemen, who are required to file
returns hereunder and also under the Service Occupation Tax
Act, to furnish all the return information required by both
Acts on the one form.
Where the serviceman has more than one business registered
with the Department under separate registration hereunder,
such serviceman shall not file each return that is due as a
single return covering all such registered businesses, but
shall file separate returns for each such registered business.

Illinois at retail from a retailer and which is titled or
registered by an agency of this State's government and (ii)
aviation fuel sold on or after December 1, 2019. This

47133 are binding on the State.

Aviation Fuel Sales Tax Refund Fund. The Department shall only
pay moneys into the State Aviation Program Fund and the
Aviation Fuel Sales Tax Refund Fund under this Act for so long

U.S.C. 47133 are binding on the State.

net revenue realized for the preceding month from the 1.25%
rate on the selling price of motor fuel and gasohol.

payment into the Underground Storage Tank Fund under this Act,
the Use Tax Act, the Service Occupation Tax Act, and the
Retailers' Occupation Tax Act shall not exceed $18,000,000 in

received by the Department under the Use Tax Act, this Act, the

required to be deposited into the Build Illinois Bond Account
in the Build Illinois Fund during such month and (2) the amount
transferred during such month to the Build Illinois Fund from
the State and Local Sales Tax Reform Fund shall have been less

the difference shall be immediately paid into the Build
Illinois Fund from other moneys received by the Department

Account in the Build Illinois Fund in such month shall be less
than the amount required to be transferred in such month from
the Build Illinois Bond Account to the Build Illinois Bond
Retirement and Interest Fund pursuant to Section 13 of the
Build Illinois Bond Act, an amount equal to such deficiency
shall be immediately paid from other moneys received by the
Department pursuant to the Tax Acts to the Build Illinois
Fund; provided, however, that any amounts paid to the Build
Illinois Fund in any fiscal year pursuant to this sentence
shall be deemed to constitute payments pursuant to clause (b)
of the preceding sentence and shall reduce the amount
otherwise payable for such fiscal year pursuant to clause (b)
of the preceding sentence. The moneys received by the
Department pursuant to this Act and required to be deposited
into the Build Illinois Fund are subject to the pledge, claim

Sec. 3-10. Rate of tax. Unless otherwise provided in this
Section, the tax imposed by this Act is at the rate of 6.25% of
the "selling price", as defined in Section 2 of the Service Use
Tax Act, of the tangible personal property. For the purpose of
computing this tax, in no event shall the "selling price" be
less than the cost price to the serviceman of the tangible
personal property transferred. The selling price of each item
of tangible personal property transferred as an incident of a
sale of service may be shown as a distinct and separate item on
the serviceman's billing to the service customer. If the
selling price is not so shown, the selling price of the
tangible personal property is deemed to be 50% of the
serviceman's entire billing to the service customer. When,
however, a serviceman contracts to design, develop, and
produce special order machinery or equipment, the tax imposed
by this Act shall be based on the serviceman's cost price of
the tangible personal property transferred incident to the
completion of the contract.
Beginning on July 1, 2000 and through December 31, 2000,

(ii) 80% of the selling price of property transferred as an
incident to the sale of service on or after July 1, 2003 and on
or before July 1, 2017, and (iii) 100% of the cost price
thereafter. If, at any time, however, the tax under this Act on
sales of gasohol, as defined in the Use Tax Act, is imposed at
the rate of 1.25%, then the tax imposed by this Act applies to
100% of the proceeds of sales of gasohol made during that time.
With respect to majority blended ethanol fuel, as defined
in the Use Tax Act, the tax imposed by this Act does not apply
to the selling price of property transferred as an incident to
the sale of service on or after July 1, 2003 and on or before
December 31, 2023 but applies to 100% of the selling price
thereafter.
With respect to biodiesel blends, as defined in the Use
Tax Act, with no less than 1% and no more than 10% biodiesel,
the tax imposed by this Act applies to (i) 80% of the selling
price of property transferred as an incident to the sale of
service on or after July 1, 2003 and on or before December 31,
2018 and (ii) 100% of the proceeds of the selling price
thereafter. If, at any time, however, the tax under this Act on
sales of biodiesel blends, as defined in the Use Tax Act, with
no less than 1% and no more than 10% biodiesel is imposed at
the rate of 1.25%, then the tax imposed by this Act applies to
100% of the proceeds of sales of biodiesel blends with no less
than 1% and no more than 10% biodiesel made during that time.
With respect to 100% biodiesel, as defined in the Use Tax
Act, and biodiesel blends, as defined in the Use Tax Act, with
more than 10% but no more than 99% biodiesel material, the tax
imposed by this Act does not apply to the proceeds of the
selling price of property transferred as an incident to the
sale of service on or after July 1, 2003 and on or before
December 31, 2023 but applies to 100% of the selling price
thereafter.
At the election of any registered serviceman made for each
fiscal year, sales of service in which the aggregate annual
cost price of tangible personal property transferred as an
incident to the sales of service is less than 35%, or 75% in
the case of servicemen transferring prescription drugs or
servicemen engaged in graphic arts production, of the
aggregate annual total gross receipts from all sales of
service, the tax imposed by this Act shall be based on the
serviceman's cost price of the tangible personal property
transferred incident to the sale of those services.

General Assembly. The discount under this Section is not
allowed for the 1.25% portion of taxes paid on aviation fuel
that is subject to the revenue use requirements of 49 U.S.C.
47107(b) and 49 U.S.C. 47133. The discount allowed under this
Section is allowed only for returns that are filed in the
manner required by this Act. The Department may disallow the
discount for servicemen whose certificate of registration is
revoked at the time the return is filed, but only if the
Department's decision to revoke the certificate of
registration has become final.
Where such tangible personal property is sold under a
conditional sales contract, or under any other form of sale
wherein the payment of the principal sum, or a part thereof, is
extended beyond the close of the period for which the return is
filed, the serviceman, in collecting the tax may collect, for

before the twentieth day of each calendar month, such
serviceman shall file a return for the preceding calendar
month in accordance with reasonable rules and regulations to
be promulgated by the Department of Revenue. Such return shall
be filed on a form prescribed by the Department and shall

General Assembly: (i) food for human consumption that is to be
consumed off the premises where it is sold (other than
alcoholic beverages, food consisting of or infused with adult
use cannabis, soft drinks, and food that has been prepared for
immediate consumption); and (ii) food prepared for immediate
consumption and transferred incident to a sale of service
subject to this Act or the Service Use Tax Act by an entity
licensed under the Hospital Licensing Act, the Nursing Home
Care Act, the Assisted Living and Shared Housing Act, the

amendatory Act of the 102nd General Assembly.
On and after January 1, 2018, with respect to servicemen
whose annual gross receipts average $20,000 or more, all
returns required to be filed pursuant to this Act shall be
filed electronically. Servicemen who demonstrate that they do
not have access to the Internet or demonstrate hardship in
filing electronically may petition the Department to waive the
electronic filing requirement.
The Department may require returns to be filed on a
quarterly basis. If so required, a return for each calendar
quarter shall be filed on or before the twentieth day of the
calendar month following the end of such calendar quarter. The
taxpayer shall also file a return with the Department for each
of the first two months of each calendar quarter, on or before

herein imposed on aviation fuel acquired as an incident to the

calendar month shall, instead of reporting and paying tax as
otherwise required by this Section, report and pay such tax on
a separate aviation fuel tax return. The requirements related
to the return shall be as otherwise provided in this Section.

contrary, servicemen subject to tax on cannabis shall file all
cannabis tax returns and shall make all cannabis tax payments
by electronic means in the manner and form required by the

the purchaser provides the appropriate documentation as
required by Section 3-70 of the Service Use Tax Act. A
Manufacturer's Purchase Credit certification, accepted prior
to October 1, 2003 or on or after September 1, 2004 by a
serviceman as provided in Section 3-70 of the Service Use Tax
Act, may be used by that serviceman to satisfy Service
Occupation Tax liability in the amount claimed in the
certification, not to exceed 6.25% of the receipts subject to
tax from a qualifying purchase. A Manufacturer's Purchase
Credit reported on any original or amended return filed under
this Act after October 20, 2003 for reporting periods prior to
September 1, 2004 shall be disallowed. Manufacturer's Purchase
Credit reported on annual returns due on or after January 1,
2005 will be disallowed for periods prior to September 1,
2004. No Manufacturer's Purchase Credit may be used after
September 30, 2003 through August 31, 2004 to satisfy any tax
liability imposed under this Act, including any audit
liability.
If the serviceman's average monthly tax liability to the
Department does not exceed $200, the Department may authorize
his returns to be filed on a quarter annual basis, with the
return for January, February and March of a given year being
due by April 20 of such year; with the return for April, May
and June of a given year being due by July 20 of such year;
with the return for July, August and September of a given year
being due by October 20 of such year, and with the return for
October, November and December of a given year being due by
January 20 of the following year.
If the serviceman's average monthly tax liability to the
Department does not exceed $50, the Department may authorize
his returns to be filed on an annual basis, with the return for
a given year being due by January 20 of the following year.
Such quarter annual and annual returns, as to form and
substance, shall be subject to the same requirements as
monthly returns.
Notwithstanding any other provision in this Act concerning
the time within which a serviceman may file his return, in the
case of any serviceman who ceases to engage in a kind of
business which makes him responsible for filing returns under
this Act, such serviceman shall file a final return under this
Act with the Department not more than 1 month after
discontinuing such business.
Beginning October 1, 1993, a taxpayer who has an average
monthly tax liability of $150,000 or more shall make all
payments required by rules of the Department by electronic
funds transfer. Beginning October 1, 1994, a taxpayer who has
an average monthly tax liability of $100,000 or more shall
make all payments required by rules of the Department by
electronic funds transfer. Beginning October 1, 1995, a
taxpayer who has an average monthly tax liability of $50,000
or more shall make all payments required by rules of the
Department by electronic funds transfer. Beginning October 1,
2000, a taxpayer who has an annual tax liability of $200,000 or
more shall make all payments required by rules of the
Department by electronic funds transfer. The term "annual tax
liability" shall be the sum of the taxpayer's liabilities
under this Act, and under all other State and local occupation
and use tax laws administered by the Department, for the
immediately preceding calendar year. The term "average monthly
tax liability" means the sum of the taxpayer's liabilities
under this Act, and under all other State and local occupation
and use tax laws administered by the Department, for the
immediately preceding calendar year divided by 12. Beginning
on October 1, 2002, a taxpayer who has a tax liability in the
amount set forth in subsection (b) of Section 2505-210 of the
Department of Revenue Law shall make all payments required by
rules of the Department by electronic funds transfer.
Before August 1 of each year beginning in 1993, the
Department shall notify all taxpayers required to make
payments by electronic funds transfer. All taxpayers required
to make payments by electronic funds transfer shall make those
payments for a minimum of one year beginning on October 1.

funds transfer may make payments by electronic funds transfer
with the permission of the Department.
All taxpayers required to make payment by electronic funds
transfer and any taxpayers authorized to voluntarily make
payments by electronic funds transfer shall make those
payments in the manner authorized by the Department.
The Department shall adopt such rules as are necessary to
effectuate a program of electronic funds transfer and the
requirements of this Section.

selling price of tangible personal property which he sells and
the purchaser thereafter returns such tangible personal
property and the serviceman refunds the selling price thereof
to the purchaser, such serviceman shall also refund, to the
purchaser, the tax so collected from the purchaser. When
filing his return for the period in which he refunds such tax
to the purchaser, the serviceman may deduct the amount of the
tax so refunded by him to the purchaser from any other Service
Occupation Tax, Service Use Tax, Retailers' Occupation Tax or
Use Tax which such serviceman may be required to pay or remit
to the Department, as shown by such return, provided that the
amount of the tax to be deducted shall previously have been
remitted to the Department by such serviceman. If the
serviceman shall not previously have remitted the amount of
such tax to the Department, he shall be entitled to no
deduction hereunder upon refunding such tax to the purchaser.
If experience indicates such action to be practicable, the
Department may prescribe and furnish a combination or joint
return which will enable servicemen, who are required to file
returns hereunder and also under the Retailers' Occupation Tax
Act, the Use Tax Act or the Service Use Tax Act, to furnish all
the return information required by all said Acts on the one
form.
Where the serviceman has more than one business registered
with the Department under separate registrations hereunder,
such serviceman shall file separate returns for each
registered business.
Beginning January 1, 1990, each month the Department shall
pay into the Local Government Tax Fund the revenue realized
for the preceding month from the 1% tax imposed under this Act.

pay into the County and Mass Transit District Fund 4% of the
revenue realized for the preceding month from the 6.25%
general rate on sales of tangible personal property other than
aviation fuel sold on or after December 1, 2019. This
exception for aviation fuel only applies for so long as the

Act of the 102nd General Assembly;
7. The amount of credit provided in Section 2d of this
Act;

retailers whose annual gross receipts average $20,000 or more,
all returns required to be filed pursuant to this Act shall be

Prior to October 1, 2003, and on and after September 1,
2004 a retailer may accept a Manufacturer's Purchase Credit
certification from a purchaser in satisfaction of Use Tax as
provided in Section 3-85 of the Use Tax Act if the purchaser
provides the appropriate documentation as required by Section

certification, accepted by a retailer prior to October 1, 2003

used after September 30, 2003 through August 31, 2004 to
satisfy any tax liability imposed under this Act, including
any audit liability.

fuel at retail in this State during the preceding calendar
month shall, instead of reporting and paying tax as otherwise
required by this Section, report and pay such tax on a separate
aviation fuel tax return. The requirements related to the
return shall be as otherwise provided in this Section.
Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Act to the
contrary, retailers selling aviation fuel shall file all
aviation fuel tax returns and shall make all aviation fuel tax
payments by electronic means in the manner and form required
by the Department. For purposes of this Section, "aviation
fuel" means jet fuel and aviation gasoline.
Beginning on October 1, 2003, any person who is not a
licensed distributor, importing distributor, or manufacturer,
as defined in the Liquor Control Act of 1934, but is engaged in
the business of selling, at retail, alcoholic liquor shall
file a statement with the Department of Revenue, in a format
and at a time prescribed by the Department, showing the total
amount paid for alcoholic liquor purchased during the
preceding month and such other information as is reasonably
required by the Department. The Department may adopt rules to
require that this statement be filed in an electronic or
telephonic format. Such rules may provide for exceptions from
the filing requirements of this paragraph. For the purposes of
this paragraph, the term "alcoholic liquor" shall have the
meaning prescribed in the Liquor Control Act of 1934.
Beginning on October 1, 2003, every distributor, importing
distributor, and manufacturer of alcoholic liquor as defined
in the Liquor Control Act of 1934, shall file a statement with
the Department of Revenue, no later than the 10th day of the
month for the preceding month during which transactions
occurred, by electronic means, showing the total amount of
gross receipts from the sale of alcoholic liquor sold or
distributed during the preceding month to purchasers;
identifying the purchaser to whom it was sold or distributed;
the purchaser's tax registration number; and such other
information reasonably required by the Department. A
distributor, importing distributor, or manufacturer of
alcoholic liquor must personally deliver, mail, or provide by
electronic means to each retailer listed on the monthly
statement a report containing a cumulative total of that
distributor's, importing distributor's, or manufacturer's
total sales of alcoholic liquor to that retailer no later than
the 10th day of the month for the preceding month during which
the transaction occurred. The distributor, importing
distributor, or manufacturer shall notify the retailer as to
the method by which the distributor, importing distributor, or
manufacturer will provide the sales information. If the
retailer is unable to receive the sales information by
electronic means, the distributor, importing distributor, or
manufacturer shall furnish the sales information by personal
delivery or by mail. For purposes of this paragraph, the term
"electronic means" includes, but is not limited to, the use of
a secure Internet website, e-mail, or facsimile.
If a total amount of less than $1 is payable, refundable or
creditable, such amount shall be disregarded if it is less
than 50 cents and shall be increased to $1 if it is 50 cents or
more.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Act to the
contrary, retailers subject to tax on cannabis shall file all

electronic funds transfer. Beginning October 1, 1995, a
taxpayer who has an average monthly tax liability of $50,000
or more shall make all payments required by rules of the
Department by electronic funds transfer. Beginning October 1,
2000, a taxpayer who has an annual tax liability of $200,000 or
more shall make all payments required by rules of the
Department by electronic funds transfer. The term "annual tax
liability" shall be the sum of the taxpayer's liabilities
under this Act, and under all other State and local occupation
and use tax laws administered by the Department, for the
immediately preceding calendar year. The term "average monthly
tax liability" shall be the sum of the taxpayer's liabilities
under this Act, and under all other State and local occupation
and use tax laws administered by the Department, for the
immediately preceding calendar year divided by 12. Beginning
on October 1, 2002, a taxpayer who has a tax liability in the
amount set forth in subsection (b) of Section 2505-210 of the
Department of Revenue Law shall make all payments required by
rules of the Department by electronic funds transfer.
Before August 1 of each year beginning in 1993, the
Department shall notify all taxpayers required to make
payments by electronic funds transfer. All taxpayers required
to make payments by electronic funds transfer shall make those
payments for a minimum of one year beginning on October 1.
Any taxpayer not required to make payments by electronic
funds transfer may make payments by electronic funds transfer
with the permission of the Department.
All taxpayers required to make payment by electronic funds
transfer and any taxpayers authorized to voluntarily make
payments by electronic funds transfer shall make those
payments in the manner authorized by the Department.
The Department shall adopt such rules as are necessary to
effectuate a program of electronic funds transfer and the
requirements of this Section.
Any amount which is required to be shown or reported on any
return or other document under this Act shall, if such amount
is not a whole-dollar amount, be increased to the nearest
whole-dollar amount in any case where the fractional part of a
dollar is 50 cents or more, and decreased to the nearest
whole-dollar amount where the fractional part of a dollar is
less than 50 cents.
If the retailer is otherwise required to file a monthly
return and if the retailer's average monthly tax liability to
the Department does not exceed $200, the Department may
authorize his returns to be filed on a quarter annual basis,
with the return for January, February and March of a given year
being due by April 20 of such year; with the return for April,
May and June of a given year being due by July 20 of such year;
with the return for July, August and September of a given year
being due by October 20 of such year, and with the return for
October, November and December of a given year being due by
January 20 of the following year.
If the retailer is otherwise required to file a monthly or
quarterly return and if the retailer's average monthly tax
liability with the Department does not exceed $50, the
Department may authorize his returns to be filed on an annual
basis, with the return for a given year being due by January 20
of the following year.
Such quarter annual and annual returns, as to form and
substance, shall be subject to the same requirements as
monthly returns.
Notwithstanding any other provision in this Act concerning
the time within which a retailer may file his return, in the
case of any retailer who ceases to engage in a kind of business
which makes him responsible for filing returns under this Act,
such retailer shall file a final return under this Act with the
Department not more than one month after discontinuing such
business.
Where the same person has more than one business
registered with the Department under separate registrations
under this Act, such person may not file each return that is
due as a single return covering all such registered
businesses, but shall file separate returns for each such
registered business.
In addition, with respect to motor vehicles, watercraft,
aircraft, and trailers that are required to be registered with
an agency of this State, except as otherwise provided in this
Section, every retailer selling this kind of tangible personal
property shall file, with the Department, upon a form to be
prescribed and supplied by the Department, a separate return
for each such item of tangible personal property which the
retailer sells, except that if, in the same transaction, (i) a
retailer of aircraft, watercraft, motor vehicles or trailers
transfers more than one aircraft, watercraft, motor vehicle or
trailer to another aircraft, watercraft, motor vehicle
retailer or trailer retailer for the purpose of resale or (ii)
a retailer of aircraft, watercraft, motor vehicles, or
trailers transfers more than one aircraft, watercraft, motor
vehicle, or trailer to a purchaser for use as a qualifying
rolling stock as provided in Section 2-5 of this Act, then that
seller may report the transfer of all aircraft, watercraft,
motor vehicles or trailers involved in that transaction to the
Department on the same uniform invoice-transaction reporting
return form. For purposes of this Section, "watercraft" means
a Class 2, Class 3, or Class 4 watercraft as defined in Section
3-2 of the Boat Registration and Safety Act, a personal
watercraft, or any boat equipped with an inboard motor.
In addition, with respect to motor vehicles, watercraft,
aircraft, and trailers that are required to be registered with
an agency of this State, every person who is engaged in the
business of leasing or renting such items and who, in
connection with such business, sells any such item to a
retailer for the purpose of resale is, notwithstanding any
other provision of this Section to the contrary, authorized to
meet the return-filing requirement of this Act by reporting
the transfer of all the aircraft, watercraft, motor vehicles,
or trailers transferred for resale during a month to the
Department on the same uniform invoice-transaction reporting
return form on or before the 20th of the month following the
month in which the transfer takes place. Notwithstanding any
other provision of this Act to the contrary, all returns filed
under this paragraph must be filed by electronic means in the
manner and form as required by the Department.
Any retailer who sells only motor vehicles, watercraft,
aircraft, or trailers that are required to be registered with
an agency of this State, so that all retailers' occupation tax
liability is required to be reported, and is reported, on such
transaction reporting returns and who is not otherwise
required to file monthly or quarterly returns, need not file
monthly or quarterly returns. However, those retailers shall
be required to file returns on an annual basis.
The transaction reporting return, in the case of motor
vehicles or trailers that are required to be registered with
an agency of this State, shall be the same document as the
Uniform Invoice referred to in Section 5-402 of the Illinois
Vehicle Code and must show the name and address of the seller;
the name and address of the purchaser; the amount of the
selling price including the amount allowed by the retailer for
traded-in property, if any; the amount allowed by the retailer
for the traded-in tangible personal property, if any, to the
extent to which Section 1 of this Act allows an exemption for
the value of traded-in property; the balance payable after
deducting such trade-in allowance from the total selling
price; the amount of tax due from the retailer with respect to
such transaction; the amount of tax collected from the
purchaser by the retailer on such transaction (or satisfactory
evidence that such tax is not due in that particular instance,
if that is claimed to be the fact); the place and date of the
sale; a sufficient identification of the property sold; such
other information as is required in Section 5-402 of the
Illinois Vehicle Code, and such other information as the
Department may reasonably require.
The transaction reporting return in the case of watercraft
or aircraft must show the name and address of the seller; the
name and address of the purchaser; the amount of the selling
price including the amount allowed by the retailer for
traded-in property, if any; the amount allowed by the retailer
for the traded-in tangible personal property, if any, to the
extent to which Section 1 of this Act allows an exemption for
the value of traded-in property; the balance payable after
deducting such trade-in allowance from the total selling
price; the amount of tax due from the retailer with respect to
such transaction; the amount of tax collected from the
purchaser by the retailer on such transaction (or satisfactory
evidence that such tax is not due in that particular instance,
if that is claimed to be the fact); the place and date of the
sale, a sufficient identification of the property sold, and
such other information as the Department may reasonably
require.
Such transaction reporting return shall be filed not later
than 20 days after the day of delivery of the item that is
being sold, but may be filed by the retailer at any time sooner
than that if he chooses to do so. The transaction reporting
return and tax remittance or proof of exemption from the
Illinois use tax 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
titling or registration is required) if the Department and
such agency or State officer determine that this procedure
will expedite the processing of applications for title or
registration.
With each such transaction reporting return, the retailer
shall remit the proper amount of tax due (or shall submit
satisfactory evidence that the sale is not taxable if that is
the case), to the Department or its agents, whereupon the
Department shall issue, in the purchaser's name, a use tax
receipt (or a certificate of exemption if the Department is
satisfied that the particular sale is tax exempt) which such
purchaser may submit to the agency with which, or State
officer with whom, he must title or register the tangible
personal property that is involved (if titling or registration
is required) in support of such purchaser's application for an
Illinois certificate or other evidence of title or
registration to such tangible personal property.
No retailer's failure or refusal to remit tax under this
Act precludes a user, who has paid the proper tax to the
retailer, from obtaining his certificate of title or other
evidence of title or registration (if titling or registration
is required) upon satisfying the Department that such user has
paid the proper tax (if tax is due) to the retailer. The
Department shall adopt appropriate rules to carry out the
mandate of this paragraph.
If the user who would otherwise pay tax to the retailer
wants the transaction reporting return filed and the payment
of the tax or proof of exemption made to the Department before
the retailer is willing to take these actions and such user has
not paid the tax to the retailer, such user may certify to the
fact of such delay by the retailer and may (upon the Department
being satisfied of the truth of such certification) transmit
the information required by the transaction reporting return
and the remittance for tax or proof of exemption directly to
the Department and obtain his tax receipt or exemption
determination, in which event the transaction reporting return
and tax remittance (if a tax payment was required) shall be
credited by the Department to the proper retailer's account
with the Department, but without the 2.1% or 1.75% discount
provided for in this Section being allowed. When the user pays
the tax directly to the Department, he shall pay the tax in the
same amount and in the same form in which it would be remitted
if the tax had been remitted to the Department by the retailer.
Refunds made by the seller during the preceding return
period to purchasers, on account of tangible personal property
returned to the seller, shall be allowed as a deduction under
subdivision 5 of his monthly or quarterly return, as the case
may be, in case the seller had theretofore included the
receipts from the sale of such tangible personal property in a
return filed by him and had paid the tax imposed by this Act
with respect to such receipts.
Where the seller is a corporation, the return filed on
behalf of such corporation shall be signed by the president,
vice-president, secretary or treasurer or by the properly
accredited agent of such corporation.
Where the seller is a limited liability company, the
return filed on behalf of the limited liability company shall
be signed by a manager, member, or properly accredited agent
of the limited liability company.
Except as provided in this Section, the retailer filing
the return under this Section shall, at the time of filing such
return, pay to the Department the amount of tax imposed by this
Act less a discount of 2.1% prior to January 1, 1990 and 1.75%
on and after January 1, 1990, or $5 per calendar year,
whichever is greater, which is allowed to reimburse the
retailer for the expenses incurred in keeping records,
preparing and filing returns, remitting the tax and supplying
data to the Department on request. On and after January 1,
2021, a certified service provider, as defined in the Leveling
the Playing Field for Illinois Retail Act, filing the return
under this Section on behalf of a remote retailer shall, at the
time of such return, pay to the Department the amount of tax
imposed by this Act less a discount of 1.75%. A remote retailer
using a certified service provider to file a return on its
behalf, as provided in the Leveling the Playing Field for
Illinois Retail Act, is not eligible for the discount. When
determining the discount allowed under this Section, retailers
shall include the amount of tax that would have been due at the
1% rate but for the 0% rate imposed under this amendatory Act
of the 102nd General Assembly. The discount under this Section
is not allowed for the 1.25% portion of taxes paid on aviation
fuel that is subject to the revenue use requirements of 49
U.S.C. 47107(b) and 49 U.S.C. 47133. Any prepayment made
pursuant to Section 2d of this Act shall be included in the
amount on which such 2.1% or 1.75% discount is computed. In the
case of retailers who report and pay the tax on a transaction
by transaction basis, as provided in this Section, such
discount shall be taken with each such tax remittance instead
of when such retailer files his periodic return. The discount
allowed under this Section is allowed only for returns that
are filed in the manner required by this Act. The Department
may disallow the discount for retailers whose certificate of
registration is revoked at the time the return is filed, but
only if the Department's decision to revoke the certificate of
registration has become final.
Before October 1, 2000, if the taxpayer's average monthly
tax liability to the Department under this Act, the Use Tax
Act, the Service Occupation Tax Act, and the Service Use Tax
Act, excluding any liability for prepaid sales tax to be
remitted in accordance with Section 2d of this Act, was
$10,000 or more during the preceding 4 complete calendar
quarters, he shall file a return with the Department each
month by the 20th day of the month next following the month
during which such tax liability is incurred and shall make
payments to the Department on or before the 7th, 15th, 22nd and
last day of the month during which such liability is incurred.
On and after October 1, 2000, if the taxpayer's average
monthly tax liability to the Department under this Act, the
Use Tax Act, the Service Occupation Tax Act, and the Service
Use Tax Act, excluding any liability for prepaid sales tax to
be remitted in accordance with Section 2d of this Act, was
$20,000 or more during the preceding 4 complete calendar
quarters, he shall file a return with the Department each
month by the 20th day of the month next following the month
during which such tax liability is incurred and shall make
payment to the Department on or before the 7th, 15th, 22nd and
last day of the month during which such liability is incurred.
If the month during which such tax liability is incurred began
prior to January 1, 1985, each payment shall be in an amount
equal to 1/4 of the taxpayer's actual liability for the month
or an amount set by the Department not to exceed 1/4 of the
average monthly liability of the taxpayer to the Department
for the preceding 4 complete calendar quarters (excluding the
month of highest liability and the month of lowest liability
in such 4 quarter period). If the month during which such tax
liability is incurred begins on or after January 1, 1985 and
prior to January 1, 1987, each payment shall be in an amount
equal to 22.5% of the taxpayer's actual liability for the
month or 27.5% of the taxpayer's liability for the same
calendar month of the preceding year. If the month during
which such tax liability is incurred begins on or after
January 1, 1987 and prior to January 1, 1988, each payment
shall be in an amount equal to 22.5% of the taxpayer's actual
liability for the month or 26.25% of the taxpayer's liability
for the same calendar month of the preceding year. If the month
during which such tax liability is incurred begins on or after
January 1, 1988, and prior to January 1, 1989, or begins on or
after January 1, 1996, each payment shall be in an amount equal
to 22.5% of the taxpayer's actual liability for the month or
25% of the taxpayer's liability for the same calendar month of
the preceding year. If the month during which such tax
liability is incurred begins on or after January 1, 1989, and
prior to January 1, 1996, each payment shall be in an amount
equal to 22.5% of the taxpayer's actual liability for the
month or 25% of the taxpayer's liability for the same calendar
month of the preceding year or 100% of the taxpayer's actual
liability for the quarter monthly reporting period. The amount
of such quarter monthly payments shall be credited against the
final tax liability of the taxpayer's return for that month.
Before October 1, 2000, once applicable, the requirement of
the making of quarter monthly payments to the Department by
taxpayers having an average monthly tax liability of $10,000
or more as determined in the manner provided above shall
continue until such taxpayer's average monthly liability to
the Department during the preceding 4 complete calendar
quarters (excluding the month of highest liability and the
month of lowest liability) is less than $9,000, or until such
taxpayer's average monthly liability to the Department as
computed for each calendar quarter of the 4 preceding complete
calendar quarter period is less than $10,000. However, if a
taxpayer can show the Department that a substantial change in
the taxpayer's business has occurred which causes the taxpayer
to anticipate that his average monthly tax liability for the
reasonably foreseeable future will fall below the $10,000
threshold stated above, then such taxpayer may petition the
Department for a change in such taxpayer's reporting status.
On and after October 1, 2000, once applicable, the requirement
of the making of quarter monthly payments to the Department by
taxpayers having an average monthly tax liability of $20,000
or more as determined in the manner provided above shall
continue until such taxpayer's average monthly liability to
the Department during the preceding 4 complete calendar
quarters (excluding the month of highest liability and the
month of lowest liability) is less than $19,000 or until such
taxpayer's average monthly liability to the Department as
computed for each calendar quarter of the 4 preceding complete
calendar quarter period is less than $20,000. However, if a
taxpayer can show the Department that a substantial change in
the taxpayer's business has occurred which causes the taxpayer
to anticipate that his average monthly tax liability for the
reasonably foreseeable future will fall below the $20,000
threshold stated above, then such taxpayer may petition the
Department for a change in such taxpayer's reporting status.
The Department shall change such taxpayer's reporting status
unless it finds that such change is seasonal in nature and not
likely to be long term. Quarter monthly payment status shall
be determined under this paragraph as if the rate reduction to
0% in this amendatory Act of the 102nd General Assembly on food
for human consumption that is to be consumed off the premises
where it is sold (other than alcoholic beverages, food
consisting of or infused with adult use cannabis, soft drinks,
and food that has been prepared for immediate consumption) had
not occurred. For quarter monthly payments due under this
paragraph on or after July 1, 2023 and through June 30, 2024,
"25% of the taxpayer's liability for the same calendar month
of the preceding year" shall be determined as if the rate
reduction to 0% in this amendatory Act of the 102nd General
Assembly had not occurred. If any such quarter monthly payment
is not paid at the time or in the amount required by this
Section, then the taxpayer shall be liable for penalties and
interest on the difference between the minimum amount due as a
payment and the amount of such quarter monthly payment
actually and timely paid, except insofar as the taxpayer has
previously made payments for that month to the Department in
excess of the minimum payments previously due as provided in
this Section. The Department shall make reasonable rules and
regulations to govern the quarter monthly payment amount and
quarter monthly payment dates for taxpayers who file on other
than a calendar monthly basis.
The provisions of this paragraph apply before October 1,
2001. Without regard to whether a taxpayer is required to make
quarter monthly payments as specified above, any taxpayer who
is required by Section 2d of this Act to collect and remit
prepaid taxes and has collected prepaid taxes which average in
excess of $25,000 per month during the preceding 2 complete
calendar quarters, shall file a return with the Department as
required by Section 2f and shall make payments to the
Department on or before the 7th, 15th, 22nd and last day of the
month during which such liability is incurred. If the month
during which such tax liability is incurred began prior to
September 1, 1985 (the effective date of Public Act 84-221),
each payment shall be in an amount not less than 22.5% of the
taxpayer's actual liability under Section 2d. If the month
during which such tax liability is incurred begins on or after
January 1, 1986, each payment shall be in an amount equal to
22.5% of the taxpayer's actual liability for the month or
27.5% of the taxpayer's liability for the same calendar month
of the preceding calendar year. If the month during which such
tax liability is incurred begins on or after January 1, 1987,
each payment shall be in an amount equal to 22.5% of the
taxpayer's actual liability for the month or 26.25% of the
taxpayer's liability for the same calendar month of the
preceding year. The amount of such quarter monthly payments
shall be credited against the final tax liability of the
taxpayer's return for that month filed under this Section or
Section 2f, as the case may be. Once applicable, the
requirement of the making of quarter monthly payments to the
Department pursuant to this paragraph shall continue until
such taxpayer's average monthly prepaid tax collections during
the preceding 2 complete calendar quarters is $25,000 or less.
If any such quarter monthly payment is not paid at the time or
in the amount required, the taxpayer shall be liable for
penalties and interest on such difference, except insofar as
the taxpayer has previously made payments for that month in
excess of the minimum payments previously due.
The provisions of this paragraph apply on and after
October 1, 2001. Without regard to whether a taxpayer is
required to make quarter monthly payments as specified above,
any taxpayer who is required by Section 2d of this Act to
collect and remit prepaid taxes and has collected prepaid
taxes that average in excess of $20,000 per month during the
preceding 4 complete calendar quarters shall file a return
with the Department as required by Section 2f and shall make
payments to the Department on or before the 7th, 15th, 22nd and
last day of the month during which the liability is incurred.
Each payment shall be in an amount equal to 22.5% of the
taxpayer's actual liability for the month or 25% of the
taxpayer's liability for the same calendar month of the
preceding year. The amount of the quarter monthly payments
shall be credited against the final tax liability of the
taxpayer's return for that month filed under this Section or
Section 2f, as the case may be. Once applicable, the
requirement of the making of quarter monthly payments to the
Department pursuant to this paragraph shall continue until the
taxpayer's average monthly prepaid tax collections during the
preceding 4 complete calendar quarters (excluding the month of
highest liability and the month of lowest liability) is less
than $19,000 or until such taxpayer's average monthly
liability to the Department as computed for each calendar
quarter of the 4 preceding complete calendar quarters is less
than $20,000. If any such quarter monthly payment is not paid
at the time or in the amount required, the taxpayer shall be
liable for penalties and interest on such difference, except
insofar as the taxpayer has previously made payments for that
month in excess of the minimum payments previously due.
If any payment provided for in this Section exceeds the
taxpayer's liabilities under this Act, the Use Tax Act, the
Service Occupation Tax Act and the Service Use Tax Act, as
shown on an original monthly return, the Department shall, if
requested by the taxpayer, issue to the taxpayer a credit
memorandum no later than 30 days after the date of payment. The
credit evidenced by such credit memorandum may be assigned by
the taxpayer to a similar taxpayer under this Act, the Use Tax
Act, the Service Occupation Tax Act or the Service Use Tax Act,
in accordance with reasonable rules and regulations to be
prescribed by the Department. If no such request is made, the
taxpayer may credit such excess payment against tax liability
subsequently to be remitted to the Department under this Act,
the Use Tax Act, the Service Occupation Tax Act or the Service
Use Tax Act, in accordance with reasonable rules and
regulations prescribed by the Department. If the Department
subsequently determined that all or any part of the credit
taken was not actually due to the taxpayer, the taxpayer's
2.1% and 1.75% vendor's discount shall be reduced by 2.1% or
1.75% of the difference between the credit taken and that
actually due, and that taxpayer shall be liable for penalties
and interest on such difference.
If a retailer of motor fuel is entitled to a credit under
Section 2d of this Act which exceeds the taxpayer's liability
to the Department under this Act for the month for which the
taxpayer is filing a return, the Department shall issue the
taxpayer a credit memorandum for the excess.

47133 are binding on the State.
For aviation fuel sold on or after December 1, 2019, each
month the Department shall pay into the State Aviation Program

fuel, less an amount estimated by the Department to be
required for refunds of the 20% portion of the tax on aviation

information return for the tax year specified in the notice.
Such annual return to the Department shall include a statement

any other penalty provided for in this Act.
(ii) On and after January 1, 1994, the taxpayer shall
be liable for a penalty as described in Section 3-4 of the
Uniform Penalty and Interest Act.
The chief executive officer, proprietor, owner or highest
ranking manager shall sign the annual return to certify the
accuracy of the information contained therein. Any person who
willfully signs the annual return containing false or
inaccurate information shall be guilty of perjury and punished
accordingly. The annual return form prescribed by the
Department shall include a warning that the person signing the
return may be liable for perjury.
The provisions of this Section concerning the filing of an
annual information return do not apply to a retailer who is not
required to file an income tax return with the United States
Government.
As soon as possible after the first day of each month, upon
certification of the Department of Revenue, the Comptroller
shall order transferred and the Treasurer shall transfer from
the General Revenue Fund to the Motor Fuel Tax Fund an amount
equal to 1.7% of 80% of the net revenue realized under this Act
for the second preceding month. Beginning April 1, 2000, this
transfer is no longer required and shall not be made.
Net revenue realized for a month shall be the revenue
collected by the State pursuant to this Act, less the amount
paid out during that month as refunds to taxpayers for
overpayment of liability.
For greater simplicity of administration, manufacturers,
importers and wholesalers whose products are sold at retail in
Illinois by numerous retailers, and who wish to do so, may
assume the responsibility for accounting and paying to the
Department all tax accruing under this Act with respect to
such sales, if the retailers who are affected do not make
written objection to the Department to this arrangement.
Any person who promotes, organizes, provides retail
selling space for concessionaires or other types of sellers at
the Illinois State Fair, DuQuoin State Fair, county fairs,
local fairs, art shows, flea markets and similar exhibitions
or events, including any transient merchant as defined by
Section 2 of the Transient Merchant Act of 1987, is required to
file a report with the Department providing the name of the
merchant's business, the name of the person or persons engaged
in merchant's business, the permanent address and Illinois
Retailers Occupation Tax Registration Number of the merchant,
the dates and location of the event and other reasonable
information that the Department may require. The report must
be filed not later than the 20th day of the month next
following the month during which the event with retail sales
was held. Any person who fails to file a report required by
this Section commits a business offense and is subject to a
fine not to exceed $250.
Any person engaged in the business of selling tangible
personal property at retail as a concessionaire or other type
of seller at the Illinois State Fair, county fairs, art shows,
flea markets and similar exhibitions or events, or any
transient merchants, as defined by Section 2 of the Transient
Merchant Act of 1987, may be required to make a daily report of
the amount of such sales to the Department and to make a daily
payment of the full amount of tax due. The Department shall
impose this requirement when it finds that there is a
significant risk of loss of revenue to the State at such an
exhibition or event. Such a finding shall be based on evidence
that a substantial number of concessionaires or other sellers
who are not residents of Illinois will be engaging in the
business of selling tangible personal property at retail at
the exhibition or event, or other evidence of a significant
risk of loss of revenue to the State. The Department shall
notify concessionaires and other sellers affected by the
imposition of this requirement. In the absence of notification
by the Department, the concessionaires and other sellers shall
file their returns as otherwise required in this Section.

Sec. 31. STAR bond occupation taxes.
(a) If the corporate authorities of a political
subdivision have established a STAR bond district and have
elected to impose a tax by ordinance pursuant to subsection
(b) or (c) of this Section, each year after the date of the
adoption of the ordinance and until all STAR bond project
costs and all political subdivision obligations financing the
STAR bond project costs, if any, have been paid in accordance
with the STAR bond project plans, but in no event longer than
the maximum maturity date of the last of the STAR bonds issued
for projects in the STAR bond district, all amounts generated
by the retailers' occupation tax and service occupation tax
shall be collected and the tax shall be enforced by the
Department of Revenue in the same manner as all retailers'
occupation taxes and service occupation taxes imposed in the
political subdivision imposing the tax. The corporate
authorities of the political subdivision shall deposit the
proceeds of the taxes imposed under subsections (b) and (c)
into either (i) a special fund held by the corporate
authorities of the political subdivision called the STAR Bonds
Tax Allocation Fund for the purpose of paying STAR bond
project costs and obligations incurred in the payment of those
costs if such taxes are designated as pledged STAR revenues by
resolution or ordinance of the political subdivision or (ii)
the political subdivision's general corporate fund if such
taxes are not designated as pledged STAR revenues by
resolution or ordinance.
The tax imposed under this Section by a municipality may
be imposed only on the portion of a STAR bond district that is
within the boundaries of the municipality. For any part of a
STAR bond district that lies outside of the boundaries of that
municipality, the municipality in which the other part of the
STAR bond district lies (or the county, in cases where a
portion of the STAR bond district lies in the unincorporated
area of a county) is authorized to impose the tax under this
Section on that part of the STAR bond district.
(b) The corporate authorities of a political subdivision
that has established a STAR bond district under this Act may,
by ordinance or resolution, impose a STAR Bond Retailers'
Occupation 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 STAR bond
district at a rate not to exceed 1% of the gross receipts from
the sales made in the course of that business, to be imposed
only in 0.25% increments. The tax may not be imposed on
tangible personal property taxed at the 1% rate under the
Retailers' Occupation Tax Act (or at the 0% rate imposed under
this amendatory Act of the 102nd General Assembly). Beginning
December 1, 2019 and through December 31, 2020, this tax is not
imposed on sales of aviation fuel unless the tax revenue is
expended for airport-related purposes. If the District does
not have an airport-related purpose to which aviation fuel tax
revenue is dedicated, then aviation fuel is excluded from the
tax. The municipality must comply with the certification
requirements for airport-related purposes under Section 2-22
of the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act. For purposes of this
Act, "airport-related purposes" has the meaning ascribed in
Section 6z-20.2 of the State Finance Act. Beginning January 1,
2021, this tax is not imposed on sales of aviation fuel for so
long as the revenue use requirements of 49 U.S.C. 47107(b) and
49 U.S.C. 47133 are binding on the District.
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
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
subsection without registering separately with the Department
under such ordinance or resolution or under this subsection.
The Department of Revenue shall have full power to administer
and enforce this subsection, to collect all taxes and
penalties due under this subsection in the manner hereinafter
provided, 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, 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 through 1o, 2 through 2-65 (in respect to all
provisions therein other than the State rate of tax), 2c
through 2h, 3 (except as to the disposition of taxes and
penalties collected, and except that the retailer's discount
is not allowed for taxes paid on aviation fuel that are subject
to the revenue use requirements of 49 U.S.C. 47107(b) and 49
U.S.C. 47133), 4, 5, 5a, 5b, 5c, 5d, 5e, 5f, 5g, 5i, 5j, 5k,
5l, 6, 6a, 6b, 6c, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 14 of the
Retailers' Occupation Tax Act and all provisions of the
Uniform Penalty and Interest Act, as fully as if those
provisions were set forth herein.
If a tax is imposed under this subsection (b), a tax shall
also be imposed under subsection (c) of this Section.
(c) If a tax has been imposed under subsection (b), a STAR
Bond Service Occupation Tax shall also be imposed upon all
persons engaged, in the STAR bond 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 STAR bond 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 shall be imposed at the same rate
as the tax imposed in subsection (b) and shall not exceed 1% of
the selling price of tangible personal property so transferred
within the STAR bond district, to be imposed only in 0.25%
increments. The tax may not be imposed on tangible personal
property taxed at the 1% rate under the Service Occupation Tax
Act (or at the 0% rate imposed under this amendatory Act of the
102nd General Assembly). Beginning December 1, 2019 and
through December 31, 2020, this tax is not imposed on sales of
aviation fuel unless the tax revenue is expended for
airport-related purposes. If the District does not have an
airport-related purpose to which aviation fuel tax revenue is
dedicated, then aviation fuel is excluded from the tax. The
municipality must comply with the certification requirements
for airport-related purposes under Section 2-22 of the
Retailers' Occupation Tax Act. For purposes of this Act,
"airport-related purposes" has the meaning ascribed in Section
6z-20.2 of the State Finance Act. Beginning January 1, 2021,
this tax is not imposed on sales of aviation fuel for so long
as the revenue use requirements of 49 U.S.C. 47107(b) and 49
U.S.C. 47133 are binding on the District.
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
certificate of registration that is issued by the Department
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 taxable under any ordinance or
resolution enacted pursuant to this subsection without
registering separately with the Department under that
ordinance or resolution or under this subsection. The
Department of Revenue 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 hereinafter provided, 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, 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, 2a through 2d, 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 STAR bond 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 political
subdivision), 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, and
except that the retailer's discount is not allowed for taxes
paid on aviation fuel that are subject to the revenue use
requirements of 49 U.S.C. 47107(b) and 49 U.S.C. 47133), 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 political subdivision), the first
paragraph of Section 15, and Sections 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20 of
the Service Occupation Tax Act and all provisions of the
Uniform Penalty and Interest Act, as fully as if those
provisions were set forth herein.
If a tax is imposed under this subsection (c), a tax shall
also be imposed under subsection (b) of this Section.
(d) Persons subject to any tax imposed under this Section
may reimburse themselves for their seller's tax liability
under this Section 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 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 STAR Bond Retailers' Occupation Tax Fund
or the Local Government Aviation Trust Fund, as appropriate.
Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph, the
Department shall immediately pay over to the State Treasurer,
ex officio, as trustee, all taxes, penalties, and interest
collected under this Section for deposit into the STAR Bond
Retailers' Occupation Tax Fund. Taxes and penalties collected
on aviation fuel sold on or after December 1, 2019, shall be
immediately paid over by the Department to the State
Treasurer, ex officio, as trustee, for deposit into the Local
Government Aviation Trust Fund. The Department shall only pay
moneys into the Local Government Aviation Trust Fund under
this Section for so long as the revenue use requirements of 49
U.S.C. 47107(b) and 49 U.S.C. 47133 are binding on the
District. 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 political
subdivisions from the STAR Bond Retailers' Occupation Tax
Fund, the political subdivisions to be those from which
retailers have paid taxes or penalties under this Section to
the Department during the second preceding calendar month. The
amount to be paid to each political subdivision shall be the
amount (not including credit memoranda and not including taxes
and penalties collected on aviation fuel sold on or after
December 1, 2019) 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 an amount equal to the amount of refunds made
during the second preceding calendar month by the Department,
less 3% of that amount, which 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 in administering and enforcing the provisions
of this Section, on behalf of such political subdivision, 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
political subdivision. Within 10 days after receipt by the
Comptroller of the disbursement certification to the political
subdivisions 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. The
proceeds of the tax paid to political subdivisions under this
Section shall be deposited into either (i) the STAR Bonds Tax
Allocation Fund by the political subdivision if the political
subdivision has designated them as pledged STAR revenues by
resolution or ordinance or (ii) the political subdivision's
general corporate fund if the political subdivision has not
designated them as pledged STAR revenues.
An ordinance or resolution imposing or discontinuing the
tax under this Section 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, if all other requirements of
this Section are met, 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, if all other requirements of this Section
are met, the Department shall proceed to administer and
enforce this Section as of the first day of January next
following the adoption and filing.
The Department of Revenue shall not administer or enforce
an ordinance imposing, discontinuing, or changing the rate of
the tax under this Section until the political subdivision
also provides, in the manner prescribed by the Department, the
boundaries of the STAR bond district and each address in the
STAR bond district in such a way that the Department can
determine by its address whether a business is located in the
STAR bond district. The political subdivision must provide
this boundary and address information to the Department on or
before April 1 for administration and enforcement of the tax
under this Section by the Department beginning on the
following July 1 and on or before October 1 for administration
and enforcement of the tax under this Section by the
Department beginning on the following January 1. The
Department of Revenue shall not administer or enforce any
change ma
