8partnership, trust or a Subchapter S corporation shall be an
9additional amount equal to 1.5% of such taxpayer's net income
10for the taxable year.
11 (d-1) Rate reduction for certain foreign insurers. In the
12case of a foreign insurer, as defined by Section 35A-5 of the
13Illinois Insurance Code, whose state or country of domicile
14imposes on insurers domiciled in Illinois a retaliatory tax
15(excluding any insurer whose premiums from reinsurance assumed
16are 50% or more of its total insurance premiums as determined
17under paragraph (2) of subsection (b) of Section 304, except
18that for purposes of this determination premiums from
19reinsurance do not include premiums from inter-affiliate
20reinsurance arrangements), beginning with taxable years ending
21on or after December 31, 1999, the sum of the rates of tax
22imposed by subsections (b) and (d) shall be reduced (but not
23increased) to the rate at which the total amount of tax imposed
24under this Act, net of all credits allowed under this Act,
25shall equal (i) the total amount of tax that would be imposed
26on the foreign insurer's net income allocable to Illinois for

4insurer's state or country of domicile, net of all credits
5allowed or (ii) a rate of zero if no such tax is imposed on
6such income by the foreign insurer's state of domicile. For
7the purposes of this subsection (d-1), an inter-affiliate
8includes a mutual insurer under common management.
9 (1) For the purposes of subsection (d-1), in no event
10 shall the sum of the rates of tax imposed by subsections
11 (b) and (d) be reduced below the rate at which the sum of:
12 (A) the total amount of tax imposed on such
13 foreign insurer under this Act for a taxable year, net
14 of all credits allowed under this Act, plus
15 (B) the privilege tax imposed by Section 409 of
16 the Illinois Insurance Code, the fire insurance
17 company tax imposed by Section 12 of the Fire
18 Investigation Act, and the fire department taxes
19 imposed under Section 11-10-1 of the Illinois

7 has been reduced to zero, against the rates imposed by
8 subsection (d).
9 This subsection (d-1) is exempt from the provisions of
10Section 250.
11 (e) Investment credit. A taxpayer shall be allowed a
12credit against the Personal Property Tax Replacement Income
13Tax for investment in qualified property.
14 (1) A taxpayer shall be allowed a credit equal to .5%
15 of the basis of qualified property placed in service
16 during the taxable year, provided such property is placed
17 in service on or after July 1, 1984. There shall be allowed
18 an additional credit equal to .5% of the basis of
19 qualified property placed in service during the taxable
20 year, provided such property is placed in service on or
21 after July 1, 1986, and the taxpayer's base employment
22 within Illinois has increased by 1% or more over the
23 preceding year as determined by the taxpayer's employment
24 records filed with the Illinois Department of Employment
25 Security. Taxpayers who are new to Illinois shall be
26 deemed to have met the 1% growth in base employment for the

SB2247- 20 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 first year in which they file employment records with the
2 Illinois Department of Employment Security. The provisions
3 added to this Section by Public Act 85-1200 (and restored
4 by Public Act 87-895) shall be construed as declaratory of
5 existing law and not as a new enactment. If, in any year,
6 the increase in base employment within Illinois over the
7 preceding year is less than 1%, the additional credit
8 shall be limited to that percentage times a fraction, the
9 numerator of which is .5% and the denominator of which is
10 1%, but shall not exceed .5%. The investment credit shall
11 not be allowed to the extent that it would reduce a
12 taxpayer's liability in any tax year below zero, nor may
13 any credit for qualified property be allowed for any year
14 other than the year in which the property was placed in
15 service in Illinois. For tax years ending on or after
16 December 31, 1987, and on or before December 31, 1988, the
17 credit shall be allowed for the tax year in which the
18 property is placed in service, or, if the amount of the
19 credit exceeds the tax liability for that year, whether it
20 exceeds the original liability or the liability as later
21 amended, such excess may be carried forward and applied to
22 the tax liability of the 5 taxable years following the
23 excess credit years if the taxpayer (i) makes investments
24 which cause the creation of a minimum of 2,000 full-time
25 equivalent jobs in Illinois, (ii) is located in an
26 enterprise zone established pursuant to the Illinois

SB2247- 21 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 Enterprise Zone Act and (iii) is certified by the
2 Department of Commerce and Community Affairs (now
3 Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity) as
4 complying with the requirements specified in clause (i)
5 and (ii) by July 1, 1986. The Department of Commerce and
6 Community Affairs (now Department of Commerce and Economic
7 Opportunity) shall notify the Department of Revenue of all
8 such certifications immediately. For tax years ending
9 after December 31, 1988, the credit shall be allowed for
10 the tax year in which the property is placed in service,
11 or, if the amount of the credit exceeds the tax liability
12 for that year, whether it exceeds the original liability
13 or the liability as later amended, such excess may be
14 carried forward and applied to the tax liability of the 5
15 taxable years following the excess credit years. The
16 credit shall be applied to the earliest year for which
17 there is a liability. If there is credit from more than one
18 tax year that is available to offset a liability, earlier
19 credit shall be applied first.
20 (2) The term "qualified property" means property
21 which:
22 (A) is tangible, whether new or used, including
23 buildings and structural components of buildings and
24 signs that are real property, but not including land
25 or improvements to real property that are not a
26 structural component of a building such as

SB2247- 22 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 landscaping, sewer lines, local access roads, fencing,
2 parking lots, and other appurtenances;
3 (B) is depreciable pursuant to Section 167 of the
4 Internal Revenue Code, except that "3-year property"
5 as defined in Section 168(c)(2)(A) of that Code is not
6 eligible for the credit provided by this subsection
7 (e);
8 (C) is acquired by purchase as defined in Section
9 179(d) of the Internal Revenue Code;
10 (D) is used in Illinois by a taxpayer who is
11 primarily engaged in manufacturing, or in mining coal
12 or fluorite, or in retailing, or was placed in service
13 on or after July 1, 2006 in a River Edge Redevelopment
14 Zone established pursuant to the River Edge
15 Redevelopment Zone Act; and
16 (E) has not previously been used in Illinois in
17 such a manner and by such a person as would qualify for
18 the credit provided by this subsection (e) or
19 subsection (f).
20 (3) For purposes of this subsection (e),
21 "manufacturing" means the material staging and production
22 of tangible personal property by procedures commonly
23 regarded as manufacturing, processing, fabrication, or
24 assembling which changes some existing material into new
25 shapes, new qualities, or new combinations. For purposes
26 of this subsection (e) the term "mining" shall have the

SB2247- 23 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 same meaning as the term "mining" in Section 613(c) of the
2 Internal Revenue Code. For purposes of this subsection
3 (e), the term "retailing" means the sale of tangible
4 personal property for use or consumption and not for
5 resale, or services rendered in conjunction with the sale
6 of tangible personal property for use or consumption and
7 not for resale. For purposes of this subsection (e),
8 "tangible personal property" has the same meaning as when
9 that term is used in the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act,
10 and, for taxable years ending after December 31, 2008,
11 does not include the generation, transmission, or
12 distribution of electricity.
13 (4) The basis of qualified property shall be the basis
14 used to compute the depreciation deduction for federal
15 income tax purposes.
16 (5) If the basis of the property for federal income
17 tax depreciation purposes is increased after it has been
18 placed in service in Illinois by the taxpayer, the amount
19 of such increase shall be deemed property placed in
20 service on the date of such increase in basis.
21 (6) The term "placed in service" shall have the same
22 meaning as under Section 46 of the Internal Revenue Code.
23 (7) If during any taxable year, any property ceases to
24 be qualified property in the hands of the taxpayer within
25 48 months after being placed in service, or the situs of
26 any qualified property is moved outside Illinois within 48

SB2247- 24 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 months after being placed in service, the Personal
2 Property Tax Replacement Income Tax for such taxable year
3 shall be increased. Such increase shall be determined by
4 (i) recomputing the investment credit which would have
5 been allowed for the year in which credit for such
6 property was originally allowed by eliminating such
7 property from such computation and, (ii) subtracting such
8 recomputed credit from the amount of credit previously
9 allowed. For the purposes of this paragraph (7), a
10 reduction of the basis of qualified property resulting
11 from a redetermination of the purchase price shall be
12 deemed a disposition of qualified property to the extent
13 of such reduction.
14 (8) Unless the investment credit is extended by law,
15 the basis of qualified property shall not include costs
16 incurred after December 31, 2018, except for costs
17 incurred pursuant to a binding contract entered into on or
18 before December 31, 2018.
19 (9) Each taxable year ending before December 31, 2000,
20 a partnership may elect to pass through to its partners
21 the credits to which the partnership is entitled under
22 this subsection (e) for the taxable year. A partner may
23 use the credit allocated to him or her under this
24 paragraph only against the tax imposed in subsections (c)
25 and (d) of this Section. If the partnership makes that
26 election, those credits shall be allocated among the

SB2247- 25 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 partners in the partnership in accordance with the rules
2 set forth in Section 704(b) of the Internal Revenue Code,
3 and the rules promulgated under that Section, and the
4 allocated amount of the credits shall be allowed to the
5 partners for that taxable year. The partnership shall make
6 this election on its Personal Property Tax Replacement
7 Income Tax return for that taxable year. The election to
8 pass through the credits shall be irrevocable.
9 For taxable years ending on or after December 31,
10 2000, a partner that qualifies its partnership for a
11 subtraction under subparagraph (I) of paragraph (2) of
12 subsection (d) of Section 203 or a shareholder that
13 qualifies a Subchapter S corporation for a subtraction
14 under subparagraph (S) of paragraph (2) of subsection (b)
15 of Section 203 shall be allowed a credit under this
16 subsection (e) equal to its share of the credit earned
17 under this subsection (e) during the taxable year by the
18 partnership or Subchapter S corporation, determined in
19 accordance with the determination of income and
20 distributive share of income under Sections 702 and 704
21 and Subchapter S of the Internal Revenue Code. This
22 paragraph is exempt from the provisions of Section 250.

24Redevelopment Zone.
25 (1) A taxpayer shall be allowed a credit against the

2 service in an Enterprise Zone created pursuant to the
3 Illinois Enterprise Zone Act or, for property placed in
4 service on or after July 1, 2006, a River Edge
5 Redevelopment Zone established pursuant to the River Edge
6 Redevelopment Zone Act. For partners, shareholders of
7 Subchapter S corporations, and owners of limited liability
8 companies, if the liability company is treated as a
9 partnership for purposes of federal and State income
10 taxation, there shall be allowed a credit under this
11 subsection (f) to be determined in accordance with the
12 determination of income and distributive share of income
13 under Sections 702 and 704 and Subchapter S of the
14 Internal Revenue Code. The credit shall be .5% of the
15 basis for such property. The credit shall be available
16 only in the taxable year in which the property is placed in
17 service in the Enterprise Zone or River Edge Redevelopment
18 Zone and shall not be allowed to the extent that it would
19 reduce a taxpayer's liability for the tax imposed by
20 subsections (a) and (b) of this Section to below zero. For
21 tax years ending on or after December 31, 1985, the credit
22 shall be allowed for the tax year in which the property is
23 placed in service, or, if the amount of the credit exceeds
24 the tax liability for that year, whether it exceeds the
25 original liability or the liability as later amended, such
26 excess may be carried forward and applied to the tax

SB2247- 27 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 liability of the 5 taxable years following the excess
2 credit year. The credit shall be applied to the earliest
3 year for which there is a liability. If there is credit
4 from more than one tax year that is available to offset a
5 liability, the credit accruing first in time shall be
6 applied first.
7 (2) The term qualified property means property which:
8 (A) is tangible, whether new or used, including
9 buildings and structural components of buildings;
10 (B) is depreciable pursuant to Section 167 of the
11 Internal Revenue Code, except that "3-year property"
12 as defined in Section 168(c)(2)(A) of that Code is not
13 eligible for the credit provided by this subsection
14 (f);
15 (C) is acquired by purchase as defined in Section
16 179(d) of the Internal Revenue Code;
17 (D) is used in the Enterprise Zone or River Edge
18 Redevelopment Zone by the taxpayer; and
19 (E) has not been previously used in Illinois in
20 such a manner and by such a person as would qualify for
21 the credit provided by this subsection (f) or
22 subsection (e).
23 (3) The basis of qualified property shall be the basis
24 used to compute the depreciation deduction for federal
25 income tax purposes.
26 (4) If the basis of the property for federal income

SB2247- 28 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 tax depreciation purposes is increased after it has been
2 placed in service in the Enterprise Zone or River Edge
3 Redevelopment Zone by the taxpayer, the amount of such
4 increase shall be deemed property placed in service on the
5 date of such increase in basis.
6 (5) The term "placed in service" shall have the same
7 meaning as under Section 46 of the Internal Revenue Code.
8 (6) If during any taxable year, any property ceases to
9 be qualified property in the hands of the taxpayer within
10 48 months after being placed in service, or the situs of
11 any qualified property is moved outside the Enterprise
12 Zone or River Edge Redevelopment Zone within 48 months
13 after being placed in service, the tax imposed under
14 subsections (a) and (b) of this Section for such taxable
15 year shall be increased. Such increase shall be determined
16 by (i) recomputing the investment credit which would have
17 been allowed for the year in which credit for such
18 property was originally allowed by eliminating such
19 property from such computation, and (ii) subtracting such
20 recomputed credit from the amount of credit previously
21 allowed. For the purposes of this paragraph (6), a
22 reduction of the basis of qualified property resulting
23 from a redetermination of the purchase price shall be
24 deemed a disposition of qualified property to the extent
25 of such reduction.
26 (7) There shall be allowed an additional credit equal

SB2247- 29 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 to 0.5% of the basis of qualified property placed in
2 service during the taxable year in a River Edge
3 Redevelopment Zone, provided such property is placed in
4 service on or after July 1, 2006, and the taxpayer's base
5 employment within Illinois has increased by 1% or more
6 over the preceding year as determined by the taxpayer's
7 employment records filed with the Illinois Department of
8 Employment Security. Taxpayers who are new to Illinois
9 shall be deemed to have met the 1% growth in base
10 employment for the first year in which they file
11 employment records with the Illinois Department of
12 Employment Security. If, in any year, the increase in base
13 employment within Illinois over the preceding year is less
14 than 1%, the additional credit shall be limited to that
15 percentage times a fraction, the numerator of which is
16 0.5% and the denominator of which is 1%, but shall not
17 exceed 0.5%.
18 (8) For taxable years beginning on or after January 1,
19 2021, there shall be allowed an Enterprise Zone
20 construction jobs credit against the taxes imposed under
21 subsections (a) and (b) of this Section as provided in
22 Section 13 of the Illinois Enterprise Zone Act.
23 The credit or credits may not reduce the taxpayer's
24 liability to less than zero. If the amount of the credit or
25 credits exceeds the taxpayer's liability, the excess may
26 be carried forward and applied against the taxpayer's

SB2247- 30 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 liability in succeeding calendar years in the same manner
2 provided under paragraph (4) of Section 211 of this Act.
3 The credit or credits shall be applied to the earliest
4 year for which there is a tax liability. If there are
5 credits from more than one taxable year that are available
6 to offset a liability, the earlier credit shall be applied
7 first.
8 For partners, shareholders of Subchapter S
9 corporations, and owners of limited liability companies,
10 if the liability company is treated as a partnership for
11 the purposes of federal and State income taxation, there
12 shall be allowed a credit under this Section to be

14 and distributive share of income under Sections 702 and
15 704 and Subchapter S of the Internal Revenue Code.

11 Businesses under subdivisions (a)(3)(B), (a)(3)(C), and
12 (a)(3)(D) of Section 5.5 of the Illinois Enterprise Zone
13 Act, and shall not be allowed to the extent that it would
14 reduce a taxpayer's liability for the tax imposed by
15 subsections (a) and (b) of this Section to below zero. The
16 credit applicable to such investments shall be taken in
17 the taxable year in which such investments have been
18 completed. The credit for additional investments beyond
19 the minimum investment by a designated high impact
20 business authorized under subdivision (a)(3)(A) of Section
21 5.5 of the Illinois Enterprise Zone Act shall be available
22 only in the taxable year in which the property is placed in
23 service and shall not be allowed to the extent that it
24 would reduce a taxpayer's liability for the tax imposed by

2 placed in service, or, if the amount of the credit exceeds
3 the tax liability for that year, whether it exceeds the
4 original liability or the liability as later amended, such
5 excess may be carried forward and applied to the tax
6 liability of the 5 taxable years following the excess
7 credit year. The credit shall be applied to the earliest
8 year for which there is a liability. If there is credit
9 from more than one tax year that is available to offset a
10 liability, the credit accruing first in time shall be
11 applied first.
12 Changes made in this subdivision (h)(1) by Public Act
13 88-670 restore changes made by Public Act 85-1182 and
14 reflect existing law.
15 (2) The term qualified property means property which:
16 (A) is tangible, whether new or used, including
17 buildings and structural components of buildings;
18 (B) is depreciable pursuant to Section 167 of the
19 Internal Revenue Code, except that "3-year property"
20 as defined in Section 168(c)(2)(A) of that Code is not
21 eligible for the credit provided by this subsection
22 (h);
23 (C) is acquired by purchase as defined in Section
24 179(d) of the Internal Revenue Code; and
25 (D) is not eligible for the Enterprise Zone
26 Investment Credit provided by subsection (f) of this

SB2247- 33 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 Section.
2 (3) The basis of qualified property shall be the basis
3 used to compute the depreciation deduction for federal
4 income tax purposes.
5 (4) If the basis of the property for federal income
6 tax depreciation purposes is increased after it has been
7 placed in service in a federally designated Foreign Trade
8 Zone or Sub-Zone located in Illinois by the taxpayer, the
9 amount of such increase shall be deemed property placed in
10 service on the date of such increase in basis.
11 (5) The term "placed in service" shall have the same
12 meaning as under Section 46 of the Internal Revenue Code.
13 (6) If during any taxable year ending on or before
14 December 31, 1996, any property ceases to be qualified
15 property in the hands of the taxpayer within 48 months
16 after being placed in service, or the situs of any
17 qualified property is moved outside Illinois within 48
18 months after being placed in service, the tax imposed
19 under subsections (a) and (b) of this Section for such
20 taxable year shall be increased. Such increase shall be
21 determined by (i) recomputing the investment credit which
22 would have been allowed for the year in which credit for
23 such property was originally allowed by eliminating such
24 property from such computation, and (ii) subtracting such
25 recomputed credit from the amount of credit previously
26 allowed. For the purposes of this paragraph (6), a

SB2247- 34 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 reduction of the basis of qualified property resulting
2 from a redetermination of the purchase price shall be
3 deemed a disposition of qualified property to the extent
4 of such reduction.
5 (7) Beginning with tax years ending after December 31,
6 1996, if a taxpayer qualifies for the credit under this
7 subsection (h) and thereby is granted a tax abatement and
8 the taxpayer relocates its entire facility in violation of
9 the explicit terms and length of the contract under
10 Section 18-183 of the Property Tax Code, the tax imposed
11 under subsections (a) and (b) of this Section shall be
12 increased for the taxable year in which the taxpayer

4 Any credit earned on or after December 31, 1986 under this
5subsection which is unused in the year the credit is computed
6because it exceeds the tax liability imposed by subsections

1931, 1986, the tax imposed by subsections (c) and (d) of this
20Section for which a taxpayer has claimed a credit under this

23of the 5 taxable years following the year for which the credit
24is first computed until it is used. This credit shall be
25applied first to the earliest year for which there is a
26liability. If there is a credit under this subsection from

10and (b) of this Section for increasing research activities in
11this State. The credit allowed against the tax imposed by
12subsections (a) and (b) shall be equal to 6 1/2% of the
13qualifying expenditures for increasing research activities in

23means the qualifying expenditures as defined for the federal
24credit for increasing research activities which would be
25allowable under Section 41 of the Internal Revenue Code and
26which are conducted in this State, "qualifying expenditures

SB2247- 39 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1for increasing research activities in this State" means the
2excess of qualifying expenditures for the taxable year in
3which incurred over qualifying expenditures for the base
4period, "qualifying expenditures for the base period" means
5the average of the qualifying expenditures for each year in

12as a credit against the tax liability for the following 5
13taxable years or until it has been fully used, whichever
14occurs first; provided that no credit earned in a tax year
15ending prior to December 31, 2003 may be carried forward to any
16year ending on or after December 31, 2003.
17 If an unused credit is carried forward to a given year from
182 or more earlier years, that credit arising in the earliest
19year will be applied first against the tax liability for the
20given year. If a tax liability for the given year still
21remains, the credit from the next earliest year will then be
22applied, and so on, until all credits have been used or no tax
23liability for the given year remains. Any remaining unused
24credit or credits then will be carried forward to the next
25following year in which a tax liability is incurred, except
26that no credit can be carried forward to a year which is more

SB2247- 40 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1than 5 years after the year in which the expense for which the
2credit is given was incurred.

4amendatory Act of the 91st General Assembly in construing this
5Section for taxable years beginning before January 1, 1999.

18 This credit shall be applied first to the earliest year
19 for which there is a liability. If there is a credit under
20 this subsection from more than one tax year that is
21 available to offset a liability, the earliest credit
22 arising under this subsection shall be applied first. A
23 credit allowed under this subsection may be sold to a
24 buyer as part of a sale of all or part of the remediation

17income for the taxable year, except that beginning on January
181, 1981, and thereafter, the rate of 2.85% specified in this
19subsection shall be reduced to 2.5%, and in the case of a
20partnership, trust or a Subchapter S corporation shall be an
21additional amount equal to 1.5% of such taxpayer's net income
22for the taxable year.
23 (d-1) Rate reduction for certain foreign insurers. In the
24case of a foreign insurer, as defined by Section 35A-5 of the
25Illinois Insurance Code, whose state or country of domicile
26imposes on insurers domiciled in Illinois a retaliatory tax

SB2247- 59 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b

2are 50% or more of its total insurance premiums as determined
3under paragraph (2) of subsection (b) of Section 304, except
4that for purposes of this determination premiums from
5reinsurance do not include premiums from inter-affiliate
6reinsurance arrangements), beginning with taxable years ending
7on or after December 31, 1999, the sum of the rates of tax
8imposed by subsections (b) and (d) shall be reduced (but not
9increased) to the rate at which the total amount of tax imposed
10under this Act, net of all credits allowed under this Act,
11shall equal (i) the total amount of tax that would be imposed
12on the foreign insurer's net income allocable to Illinois for
13the taxable year by such foreign insurer's state or country of
14domicile if that net income were subject to all income taxes
15and taxes measured by net income imposed by such foreign
16insurer's state or country of domicile, net of all credits
17allowed or (ii) a rate of zero if no such tax is imposed on
18such income by the foreign insurer's state of domicile. For
19the purposes of this subsection (d-1), an inter-affiliate
20includes a mutual insurer under common management.
21 (1) For the purposes of subsection (d-1), in no event
22 shall the sum of the rates of tax imposed by subsections
23 (b) and (d) be reduced below the rate at which the sum of:
24 (A) the total amount of tax imposed on such
25 foreign insurer under this Act for a taxable year, net
26 of all credits allowed under this Act, plus

SB2247- 60 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 (B) the privilege tax imposed by Section 409 of

13 subsections (b) and (d).
14 (2) Any reduction in the rates of tax imposed by this
15 subsection shall be applied first against the rates
16 imposed by subsection (b) and only after the tax imposed
17 by subsection (a) net of all credits allowed under this
18 Section other than the credit allowed under subsection (i)
19 has been reduced to zero, against the rates imposed by
20 subsection (d).
21 This subsection (d-1) is exempt from the provisions of

23 (e) Investment credit. A taxpayer shall be allowed a
24credit against the Personal Property Tax Replacement Income

SB2247- 61 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 of the basis of qualified property placed in service
2 during the taxable year, provided such property is placed
3 in service on or after July 1, 1984. There shall be allowed
4 an additional credit equal to .5% of the basis of
5 qualified property placed in service during the taxable
6 year, provided such property is placed in service on or
7 after July 1, 1986, and the taxpayer's base employment
8 within Illinois has increased by 1% or more over the
9 preceding year as determined by the taxpayer's employment
10 records filed with the Illinois Department of Employment
11 Security. Taxpayers who are new to Illinois shall be
12 deemed to have met the 1% growth in base employment for the
13 first year in which they file employment records with the
14 Illinois Department of Employment Security. The provisions
15 added to this Section by Public Act 85-1200 (and restored
16 by Public Act 87-895) shall be construed as declaratory of
17 existing law and not as a new enactment. If, in any year,
18 the increase in base employment within Illinois over the
19 preceding year is less than 1%, the additional credit
20 shall be limited to that percentage times a fraction, the
21 numerator of which is .5% and the denominator of which is
22 1%, but shall not exceed .5%. The investment credit shall
23 not be allowed to the extent that it would reduce a
24 taxpayer's liability in any tax year below zero, nor may
25 any credit for qualified property be allowed for any year
26 other than the year in which the property was placed in

SB2247- 62 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 service in Illinois. For tax years ending on or after
2 December 31, 1987, and on or before December 31, 1988, the
3 credit shall be allowed for the tax year in which the
4 property is placed in service, or, if the amount of the
5 credit exceeds the tax liability for that year, whether it
6 exceeds the original liability or the liability as later
7 amended, such excess may be carried forward and applied to
8 the tax liability of the 5 taxable years following the
9 excess credit years if the taxpayer (i) makes investments
10 which cause the creation of a minimum of 2,000 full-time
11 equivalent jobs in Illinois, (ii) is located in an
12 enterprise zone established pursuant to the Illinois
13 Enterprise Zone Act and (iii) is certified by the
14 Department of Commerce and Community Affairs (now
15 Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity) as
16 complying with the requirements specified in clause (i)
17 and (ii) by July 1, 1986. The Department of Commerce and
18 Community Affairs (now Department of Commerce and Economic
19 Opportunity) shall notify the Department of Revenue of all
20 such certifications immediately. For tax years ending
21 after December 31, 1988, the credit shall be allowed for
22 the tax year in which the property is placed in service,
23 or, if the amount of the credit exceeds the tax liability
24 for that year, whether it exceeds the original liability
25 or the liability as later amended, such excess may be
26 carried forward and applied to the tax liability of the 5

SB2247- 63 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 taxable years following the excess credit years. The
2 credit shall be applied to the earliest year for which
3 there is a liability. If there is credit from more than one
4 tax year that is available to offset a liability, earlier
5 credit shall be applied first.
6 (2) The term "qualified property" means property
7 which:
8 (A) is tangible, whether new or used, including
9 buildings and structural components of buildings and
10 signs that are real property, but not including land
11 or improvements to real property that are not a
12 structural component of a building such as
13 landscaping, sewer lines, local access roads, fencing,
14 parking lots, and other appurtenances;
15 (B) is depreciable pursuant to Section 167 of the
16 Internal Revenue Code, except that "3-year property"
17 as defined in Section 168(c)(2)(A) of that Code is not
18 eligible for the credit provided by this subsection
19 (e);
20 (C) is acquired by purchase as defined in Section
21 179(d) of the Internal Revenue Code;
22 (D) is used in Illinois by a taxpayer who is
23 primarily engaged in manufacturing, or in mining coal
24 or fluorite, or in retailing, or was placed in service
25 on or after July 1, 2006 in a River Edge Redevelopment
26 Zone established pursuant to the River Edge

SB2247- 64 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 Redevelopment Zone Act; and
2 (E) has not previously been used in Illinois in
3 such a manner and by such a person as would qualify for
4 the credit provided by this subsection (e) or
5 subsection (f).
6 (3) For purposes of this subsection (e),
7 "manufacturing" means the material staging and production
8 of tangible personal property by procedures commonly
9 regarded as manufacturing, processing, fabrication, or
10 assembling which changes some existing material into new
11 shapes, new qualities, or new combinations. For purposes
12 of this subsection (e) the term "mining" shall have the
13 same meaning as the term "mining" in Section 613(c) of the
14 Internal Revenue Code. For purposes of this subsection
15 (e), the term "retailing" means the sale of tangible
16 personal property for use or consumption and not for
17 resale, or services rendered in conjunction with the sale
18 of tangible personal property for use or consumption and
19 not for resale. For purposes of this subsection (e),
20 "tangible personal property" has the same meaning as when
21 that term is used in the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act,
22 and, for taxable years ending after December 31, 2008,
23 does not include the generation, transmission, or
24 distribution of electricity.
25 (4) The basis of qualified property shall be the basis
26 used to compute the depreciation deduction for federal

SB2247- 65 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 income tax purposes.
2 (5) If the basis of the property for federal income
3 tax depreciation purposes is increased after it has been
4 placed in service in Illinois by the taxpayer, the amount
5 of such increase shall be deemed property placed in
6 service on the date of such increase in basis.
7 (6) The term "placed in service" shall have the same
8 meaning as under Section 46 of the Internal Revenue Code.
9 (7) If during any taxable year, any property ceases to
10 be qualified property in the hands of the taxpayer within
11 48 months after being placed in service, or the situs of
12 any qualified property is moved outside Illinois within 48
13 months after being placed in service, the Personal
14 Property Tax Replacement Income Tax for such taxable year
15 shall be increased. Such increase shall be determined by
16 (i) recomputing the investment credit which would have
17 been allowed for the year in which credit for such
18 property was originally allowed by eliminating such
19 property from such computation and, (ii) subtracting such
20 recomputed credit from the amount of credit previously
21 allowed. For the purposes of this paragraph (7), a
22 reduction of the basis of qualified property resulting
23 from a redetermination of the purchase price shall be
24 deemed a disposition of qualified property to the extent
25 of such reduction.
26 (8) Unless the investment credit is extended by law,

SB2247- 66 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 the basis of qualified property shall not include costs
2 incurred after December 31, 2018, except for costs
3 incurred pursuant to a binding contract entered into on or
4 before December 31, 2018.
5 (9) Each taxable year ending before December 31, 2000,
6 a partnership may elect to pass through to its partners
7 the credits to which the partnership is entitled under
8 this subsection (e) for the taxable year. A partner may
9 use the credit allocated to him or her under this
10 paragraph only against the tax imposed in subsections (c)
11 and (d) of this Section. If the partnership makes that
12 election, those credits shall be allocated among the
13 partners in the partnership in accordance with the rules
14 set forth in Section 704(b) of the Internal Revenue Code,
15 and the rules promulgated under that Section, and the
16 allocated amount of the credits shall be allowed to the
17 partners for that taxable year. The partnership shall make
18 this election on its Personal Property Tax Replacement
19 Income Tax return for that taxable year. The election to
20 pass through the credits shall be irrevocable.
21 For taxable years ending on or after December 31,
22 2000, a partner that qualifies its partnership for a
23 subtraction under subparagraph (I) of paragraph (2) of
24 subsection (d) of Section 203 or a shareholder that
25 qualifies a Subchapter S corporation for a subtraction
26 under subparagraph (S) of paragraph (2) of subsection (b)

SB2247- 67 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 of Section 203 shall be allowed a credit under this
2 subsection (e) equal to its share of the credit earned
3 under this subsection (e) during the taxable year by the
4 partnership or Subchapter S corporation, determined in
5 accordance with the determination of income and
6 distributive share of income under Sections 702 and 704
7 and Subchapter S of the Internal Revenue Code. This

14 service in an Enterprise Zone created pursuant to the
15 Illinois Enterprise Zone Act or, for property placed in
16 service on or after July 1, 2006, a River Edge
17 Redevelopment Zone established pursuant to the River Edge
18 Redevelopment Zone Act. For partners, shareholders of
19 Subchapter S corporations, and owners of limited liability
20 companies, if the liability company is treated as a
21 partnership for purposes of federal and State income
22 taxation, there shall be allowed a credit under this
23 subsection (f) to be determined in accordance with the
24 determination of income and distributive share of income
25 under Sections 702 and 704 and Subchapter S of the
26 Internal Revenue Code. The credit shall be .5% of the

SB2247- 68 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 basis for such property. The credit shall be available
2 only in the taxable year in which the property is placed in
3 service in the Enterprise Zone or River Edge Redevelopment
4 Zone and shall not be allowed to the extent that it would
5 reduce a taxpayer's liability for the tax imposed by
6 subsections (a) and (b) of this Section to below zero. For
7 tax years ending on or after December 31, 1985, the credit
8 shall be allowed for the tax year in which the property is
9 placed in service, or, if the amount of the credit exceeds
10 the tax liability for that year, whether it exceeds the
11 original liability or the liability as later amended, such
12 excess may be carried forward and applied to the tax
13 liability of the 5 taxable years following the excess
14 credit year. The credit shall be applied to the earliest
15 year for which there is a liability. If there is credit
16 from more than one tax year that is available to offset a
17 liability, the credit accruing first in time shall be
18 applied first.

6 such a manner and by such a person as would qualify for
7 the credit provided by this subsection (f) or
8 subsection (e).
9 (3) The basis of qualified property shall be the basis
10 used to compute the depreciation deduction for federal
11 income tax purposes.
12 (4) If the basis of the property for federal income
13 tax depreciation purposes is increased after it has been
14 placed in service in the Enterprise Zone or River Edge
15 Redevelopment Zone by the taxpayer, the amount of such
16 increase shall be deemed property placed in service on the
17 date of such increase in basis.
18 (5) The term "placed in service" shall have the same
19 meaning as under Section 46 of the Internal Revenue Code.
20 (6) If during any taxable year, any property ceases to
21 be qualified property in the hands of the taxpayer within
22 48 months after being placed in service, or the situs of
23 any qualified property is moved outside the Enterprise
24 Zone or River Edge Redevelopment Zone within 48 months
25 after being placed in service, the tax imposed under
26 subsections (a) and (b) of this Section for such taxable

SB2247- 70 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 year shall be increased. Such increase shall be determined
2 by (i) recomputing the investment credit which would have
3 been allowed for the year in which credit for such
4 property was originally allowed by eliminating such
5 property from such computation, and (ii) subtracting such
6 recomputed credit from the amount of credit previously
7 allowed. For the purposes of this paragraph (6), a
8 reduction of the basis of qualified property resulting
9 from a redetermination of the purchase price shall be
10 deemed a disposition of qualified property to the extent
11 of such reduction.
12 (7) There shall be allowed an additional credit equal
13 to 0.5% of the basis of qualified property placed in
14 service during the taxable year in a River Edge
15 Redevelopment Zone, provided such property is placed in
16 service on or after July 1, 2006, and the taxpayer's base
17 employment within Illinois has increased by 1% or more
18 over the preceding year as determined by the taxpayer's
19 employment records filed with the Illinois Department of
20 Employment Security. Taxpayers who are new to Illinois
21 shall be deemed to have met the 1% growth in base
22 employment for the first year in which they file
23 employment records with the Illinois Department of
24 Employment Security. If, in any year, the increase in base
25 employment within Illinois over the preceding year is less
26 than 1%, the additional credit shall be limited to that

SB2247- 71 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 percentage times a fraction, the numerator of which is
2 0.5% and the denominator of which is 1%, but shall not
3 exceed 0.5%.
4 (8) For taxable years beginning on or after January 1,
5 2021, there shall be allowed an Enterprise Zone
6 construction jobs credit against the taxes imposed under
7 subsections (a) and (b) of this Section as provided in
8 Section 13 of the Illinois Enterprise Zone Act.
9 The credit or credits may not reduce the taxpayer's
10 liability to less than zero. If the amount of the credit or
11 credits exceeds the taxpayer's liability, the excess may
12 be carried forward and applied against the taxpayer's
13 liability in succeeding calendar years in the same manner
14 provided under paragraph (4) of Section 211 of this Act.
15 The credit or credits shall be applied to the earliest
16 year for which there is a tax liability. If there are
17 credits from more than one taxable year that are available
18 to offset a liability, the earlier credit shall be applied
19 first.
20 For partners, shareholders of Subchapter S
21 corporations, and owners of limited liability companies,
22 if the liability company is treated as a partnership for
23 the purposes of federal and State income taxation, there
24 shall be allowed a credit under this Section to be
25 determined in accordance with the determination of income
26 and distributive share of income under Sections 702 and

SB2247- 72 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 704 and Subchapter S of the Internal Revenue Code.

14 property which is placed in service by a Department of
15 Commerce and Economic Opportunity designated High Impact
16 Business. The credit shall be .5% of the basis for such
17 property. The credit shall not be available (i) until the
18 minimum investments in qualified property set forth in
19 subdivision (a)(3)(A) of Section 5.5 of the Illinois
20 Enterprise Zone Act have been satisfied or (ii) until the
21 time authorized in subsection (b-5) of the Illinois

23 Businesses under subdivisions (a)(3)(B), (a)(3)(C), and
24 (a)(3)(D) of Section 5.5 of the Illinois Enterprise Zone
25 Act, and shall not be allowed to the extent that it would
26 reduce a taxpayer's liability for the tax imposed by

SB2247- 73 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 subsections (a) and (b) of this Section to below zero. The
2 credit applicable to such investments shall be taken in
3 the taxable year in which such investments have been
4 completed. The credit for additional investments beyond
5 the minimum investment by a designated high impact
6 business authorized under subdivision (a)(3)(A) of Section
7 5.5 of the Illinois Enterprise Zone Act shall be available
8 only in the taxable year in which the property is placed in
9 service and shall not be allowed to the extent that it
10 would reduce a taxpayer's liability for the tax imposed by
11 subsections (a) and (b) of this Section to below zero. For
12 tax years ending on or after December 31, 1987, the credit
13 shall be allowed for the tax year in which the property is
14 placed in service, or, if the amount of the credit exceeds
15 the tax liability for that year, whether it exceeds the
16 original liability or the liability as later amended, such
17 excess may be carried forward and applied to the tax
18 liability of the 5 taxable years following the excess
19 credit year. The credit shall be applied to the earliest
20 year for which there is a liability. If there is credit
21 from more than one tax year that is available to offset a
22 liability, the credit accruing first in time shall be
23 applied first.
24 Changes made in this subdivision (h)(1) by Public Act
25 88-670 restore changes made by Public Act 85-1182 and
26 reflect existing law.

7 eligible for the credit provided by this subsection
8 (h);
9 (C) is acquired by purchase as defined in Section

14 (3) The basis of qualified property shall be the basis
15 used to compute the depreciation deduction for federal
16 income tax purposes.
17 (4) If the basis of the property for federal income
18 tax depreciation purposes is increased after it has been
19 placed in service in a federally designated Foreign Trade
20 Zone or Sub-Zone located in Illinois by the taxpayer, the
21 amount of such increase shall be deemed property placed in
22 service on the date of such increase in basis.
23 (5) The term "placed in service" shall have the same
24 meaning as under Section 46 of the Internal Revenue Code.

2 after being placed in service, or the situs of any
3 qualified property is moved outside Illinois within 48
4 months after being placed in service, the tax imposed
5 under subsections (a) and (b) of this Section for such
6 taxable year shall be increased. Such increase shall be
7 determined by (i) recomputing the investment credit which
8 would have been allowed for the year in which credit for
9 such property was originally allowed by eliminating such
10 property from such computation, and (ii) subtracting such
11 recomputed credit from the amount of credit previously
12 allowed. For the purposes of this paragraph (6), a
13 reduction of the basis of qualified property resulting
14 from a redetermination of the purchase price shall be
15 deemed a disposition of qualified property to the extent
16 of such reduction.
17 (7) Beginning with tax years ending after December 31,
18 1996, if a taxpayer qualifies for the credit under this
19 subsection (h) and thereby is granted a tax abatement and

10credits exceeds the taxpayer's liability, the excess may be
11carried forward and applied against the taxpayer's liability
12in succeeding calendar years in the manner provided under
13paragraph (4) of Section 211 of this Act. The credit or credits
14shall be applied to the earliest year for which there is a tax
15liability. If there are credits from more than one taxable
16year that are available to offset a liability, the earlier
17credit shall be applied first.
18 For partners, shareholders of Subchapter S corporations,

11multiplying the tax imposed by subsections (c) and (d) of this
12Section by a fraction, the numerator of which is base income
13allocable to Illinois and the denominator of which is Illinois
14base income, and further multiplying the product by the tax

17subsection which is unused in the year the credit is computed
18because it exceeds the tax liability imposed by subsections

9of the 5 taxable years following the year for which the credit
10is first computed until it is used. This credit shall be
11applied first to the earliest year for which there is a
12liability. If there is a credit under this subsection from
13more than one tax year that is available to offset a liability,
14the earliest credit arising under this subsection shall be
15applied first. No carryforward credit may be claimed in any
16tax year ending on or after December 31, 2003.

13for increasing research activities in this State" means the
14excess of qualifying expenditures for the taxable year in
15which incurred over qualifying expenditures for the base
16period, "qualifying expenditures for the base period" means
17the average of the qualifying expenditures for each year in

24as a credit against the tax liability for the following 5
25taxable years or until it has been fully used, whichever
26occurs first; provided that no credit earned in a tax year

SB2247- 81 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1ending prior to December 31, 2003 may be carried forward to any
2year ending on or after December 31, 2003.
3 If an unused credit is carried forward to a given year from
42 or more earlier years, that credit arising in the earliest
5year will be applied first against the tax liability for the
6given year. If a tax liability for the given year still
7remains, the credit from the next earliest year will then be
8applied, and so on, until all credits have been used or no tax
9liability for the given year remains. Any remaining unused
10credit or credits then will be carried forward to the next
11following year in which a tax liability is incurred, except
12that no credit can be carried forward to a year which is more
13than 5 years after the year in which the expense for which the
14credit is given was incurred.

4 allowed a credit against the tax imposed by subsections
5 (a) and (b) of this Section for certain amounts paid for
6 unreimbursed eligible remediation costs, as specified in
7 this subsection. For purposes of this Section,
8 "unreimbursed eligible remediation costs" means costs
9 approved by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency
10 ("Agency") under Section 58.14 of the Environmental
11 Protection Act that were paid in performing environmental
12 remediation at a site for which a No Further Remediation
13 Letter was issued by the Agency and recorded under Section
14 58.10 of the Environmental Protection Act. The credit must
15 be claimed for the taxable year in which Agency approval
16 of the eligible remediation costs is granted. The credit
17 is not available to any taxpayer if the taxpayer or any
18 related party caused or contributed to, in any material
19 respect, a release of regulated substances on, in, or
20 under the site that was identified and addressed by the
21 remedial action pursuant to the Site Remediation Program
22 of the Environmental Protection Act. After the Pollution
23 Control Board rules are adopted pursuant to the Illinois
24 Administrative Procedure Act for the administration and
25 enforcement of Section 58.9 of the Environmental
26 Protection Act, determinations as to credit availability

SB2247- 83 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b

2 those rules. For purposes of this Section, "taxpayer"
3 includes a person whose tax attributes the taxpayer has
4 succeeded to under Section 381 of the Internal Revenue
5 Code and "related party" includes the persons disallowed a

11 eligible remediation costs in excess of $100,000 per site,
12 except that the $100,000 threshold shall not apply to any
13 site contained in an enterprise zone as determined by the
14 Department of Commerce and Community Affairs (now
15 Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity). The
16 total credit allowed shall not exceed $40,000 per year
17 with a maximum total of $150,000 per site. For partners
18 and shareholders of subchapter S corporations, there shall
19 be allowed a credit under this subsection to be determined
20 in accordance with the determination of income and
21 distributive share of income under Sections 702 and 704
22 and subchapter S of the Internal Revenue Code.
23 (ii) A credit allowed under this subsection that is
24 unused in the year the credit is earned may be carried
25 forward to each of the 5 taxable years following the year
26 for which the credit is first earned until it is used. The

SB2247- 84 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1 term "unused credit" does not include any amounts of
2 unreimbursed eligible remediation costs in excess of the
3 maximum credit per site authorized under paragraph (i).
4 This credit shall be applied first to the earliest year
5 for which there is a liability. If there is a credit under
6 this subsection from more than one tax year that is
7 available to offset a liability, the earliest credit
8 arising under this subsection shall be applied first. A
9 credit allowed under this subsection may be sold to a
10 buyer as part of a sale of all or part of the remediation
11 site for which the credit was granted. The purchaser of a
12 remediation site and the tax credit shall succeed to the
13 unused credit and remaining carry-forward period of the
14 seller. To perfect the transfer, the assignor shall record
15 the transfer in the chain of title for the site and provide
16 written notice to the Director of the Illinois Department
17 of Revenue of the assignor's intent to sell the
18 remediation site and the amount of the tax credit to be
19 transferred as a portion of the sale. In no event may a
20 credit be transferred to any taxpayer if the taxpayer or a
21 related party would not be eligible under the provisions
22 of subsection (i).
23 (iii) For purposes of this Section, the term "site"
24 shall have the same meaning as under Section 58.2 of the
25 Environmental Protection Act.

21the vehicle for a defined period that is longer than one year
22and (1) is a motor vehicle of the second division that: (A) is
23a self-contained motor vehicle designed or permanently
24converted to provide living quarters for recreational,
25camping, or travel use, with direct walk through access to the
26living quarters from the driver's seat; (B) is of the van

SB2247- 98 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1configuration designed for the transportation of not less than
27 nor more than 16 passengers; or (C) has a gross vehicle
3weight rating of 8,000 pounds or less or (2) is a motor vehicle
4of the first division, "selling price" or "amount of sale"
5means the consideration received by the lessor pursuant to the
6lease contract, including amounts due at lease signing and all
7monthly or other regular payments charged over the term of the
8lease. Also included in the selling price is any amount
9received by the lessor from the lessee for the leased vehicle
10that is not calculated at the time the lease is executed,
11including, but not limited to, excess mileage charges and
12charges for excess wear and tear. For sales that occur in
13Illinois, with respect to any amount received by the lessor
14from the lessee for the leased vehicle that is not calculated
15at the time the lease is executed, the lessor who purchased the
16motor vehicle does not incur the tax imposed by the Use Tax Act
17on those amounts, and the retailer who makes the retail sale of
18the motor vehicle to the lessor is not required to collect the
19tax imposed by this Act or to pay the tax imposed by the
20Retailers' Occupation Tax Act on those amounts. However, the
21lessor who purchased the motor vehicle assumes the liability
22for reporting and paying the tax on those amounts directly to
23the Department in the same form (Illinois Retailers'
24Occupation Tax, and local retailers' occupation taxes, if
25applicable) in which the retailer would have reported and paid
26such tax if the retailer had accounted for the tax to the

SB2247- 99 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1Department. For amounts received by the lessor from the lessee
2that are not calculated at the time the lease is executed, the
3lessor must file the return and pay the tax to the Department
4by the due date otherwise required by this Act for returns
5other than transaction returns. If the retailer is entitled
6under this Act to a discount for collecting and remitting the
7tax imposed under this Act to the Department with respect to
8the sale of the motor vehicle to the lessor, then the right to
9the discount provided in this Act shall be transferred to the
10lessor with respect to the tax paid by the lessor for any
11amount received by the lessor from the lessee for the leased
12vehicle that is not calculated at the time the lease is
13executed; provided that the discount is only allowed if the
14return is timely filed and for amounts timely paid. The
15"selling price" of a motor vehicle that is sold on or after
16January 1, 2015 for the purpose of leasing for a defined period
17of longer than one year shall not be reduced by the value of or
18credit given for traded-in tangible personal property owned by
19the lessor, nor shall it be reduced by the value of or credit
20given for traded-in tangible personal property owned by the
21lessee, regardless of whether the trade-in value thereof is
22assigned by the lessee to the lessor. In the case of a motor
23vehicle that is sold for the purpose of leasing for a defined
24period of longer than one year, the sale occurs at the time of
25the delivery of the vehicle, regardless of the due date of any
26lease payments. A lessor who incurs a Retailers' Occupation

SB2247- 100 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1Tax liability on the sale of a motor vehicle coming off lease
2may not take a credit against that liability for the Use Tax
3the lessor paid upon the purchase of the motor vehicle (or for
4any tax the lessor paid with respect to any amount received by
5the lessor from the lessee for the leased vehicle that was not
6calculated at the time the lease was executed) if the selling
7price of the motor vehicle at the time of purchase was
8calculated using the definition of "selling price" as defined
9in this paragraph. Notwithstanding any other provision of this
10Act to the contrary, lessors shall file all returns and make
11all payments required under this paragraph to the Department
12by electronic means in the manner and form as required by the
13Department. This paragraph does not apply to leases of motor
14vehicles for which, at the time the lease is entered into, the
15term of the lease is not a defined period, including leases
16with a defined initial period with the option to continue the
17lease on a month-to-month or other basis beyond the initial
18defined period.
19 The phrase "like kind and character" shall be liberally
20construed (including but not limited to any form of motor
21vehicle for any form of motor vehicle, or any kind of farm or
22agricultural implement for any other kind of farm or
23agricultural implement), while not including a kind of item
24which, if sold at retail by that retailer, would be exempt from
25retailers' occupation tax and use tax as an isolated or
26occasional sale.

8business of making sales at retail as defined in this Section.
9 A person who holds himself or herself out as being engaged
10(or who habitually engages) in selling tangible personal
11property at retail is a retailer hereunder with respect to
12such sales (and not primarily in a service occupation)
13notwithstanding the fact that such person designs and produces
14such tangible personal property on special order for the
15purchaser and in such a way as to render the property of value
16only to such purchaser, if such tangible personal property so
17produced on special order serves substantially the same
18function as stock or standard items of tangible personal
19property that are sold at retail.
20 A person whose activities are organized and conducted
21primarily as a not-for-profit service enterprise, and who
22engages in selling tangible personal property at retail
23(whether to the public or merely to members and their guests)
24is a retailer with respect to such transactions, excepting
25only a person organized and operated exclusively for
26charitable, religious or educational purposes either (1), to

2patients or inmates of tangible personal property to be used
3primarily for the purposes of such person, or (2), to the
4extent of sales by such person of tangible personal property
5which is not sold or offered for sale by persons organized for
6profit. The selling of school books and school supplies by
7schools at retail to students is not "primarily for the
8purposes of" the school which does such selling. This
9paragraph does not apply to nor subject to taxation occasional
10dinners, social or similar activities of a person organized
11and operated exclusively for charitable, religious or
12educational purposes, whether or not such activities are open
13to the public.
14 A person who is the recipient of a grant or contract under
15Title VII of the Older Americans Act of 1965 (P.L. 92-258) and
16serves meals to participants in the federal Nutrition Program
17for the Elderly in return for contributions established in
18amount by the individual participant pursuant to a schedule of
19suggested fees as provided for in the federal Act is not a
20retailer under this Act with respect to such transactions.
21 Persons who engage in the business of transferring
22tangible personal property upon the redemption of trading
23stamps are retailers hereunder when engaged in such business.
24 The isolated or occasional sale of tangible personal
25property at retail by a person who does not hold himself out as
26being engaged (or who does not habitually engage) in selling

SB2247- 103 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1such tangible personal property at retail or a sale through a
2bulk vending machine does not make such person a retailer
3hereunder. However, any person who is engaged in a business
4which is not subject to the tax imposed by the Retailers'
5Occupation Tax Act because of involving the sale of or a
6contract to sell real estate or a construction contract to
7improve real estate, but who, in the course of conducting such
8business, transfers tangible personal property to users or
9consumers in the finished form in which it was purchased, and
10which does not become real estate, under any provision of a
11construction contract or real estate sale or real estate sales
12agreement entered into with some other person arising out of
13or because of such nontaxable business, is a retailer to the
14extent of the value of the tangible personal property so
15transferred. If, in such transaction, a separate charge is
16made for the tangible personal property so transferred, the
17value of such property, for the purposes of this Act, is the
18amount so separately charged, but not less than the cost of
19such property to the transferor; if no separate charge is
20made, the value of such property, for the purposes of this Act,
21is the cost to the transferor of such tangible personal
22property.

9 State. However, the ownership of property that is located
10 at the premises of a printer with which the retailer has
11 contracted for printing and that consists of the final

25 Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, for any motor
26vehicle, as defined in Section 1-146 of the Vehicle Code, that

SB2247- 196 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1is sold on or after January 1, 2015 for the purpose of leasing
2the vehicle for a defined period that is longer than one year
3and (1) is a motor vehicle of the second division that: (A) is
4a self-contained motor vehicle designed or permanently
5converted to provide living quarters for recreational,
6camping, or travel use, with direct walk through access to the
7living quarters from the driver's seat; (B) is of the van
8configuration designed for the transportation of not less than
97 nor more than 16 passengers; or (C) has a gross vehicle
10weight rating of 8,000 pounds or less or (2) is a motor vehicle
11of the first division, "selling price" or "amount of sale"
12means the consideration received by the lessor pursuant to the
13lease contract, including amounts due at lease signing and all
14monthly or other regular payments charged over the term of the
15lease. Also included in the selling price is any amount
16received by the lessor from the lessee for the leased vehicle
17that is not calculated at the time the lease is executed,
18including, but not limited to, excess mileage charges and
19charges for excess wear and tear. For sales that occur in
20Illinois, with respect to any amount received by the lessor
21from the lessee for the leased vehicle that is not calculated
22at the time the lease is executed, the lessor who purchased the
23motor vehicle does not incur the tax imposed by the Use Tax Act
24on those amounts, and the retailer who makes the retail sale of
25the motor vehicle to the lessor is not required to collect the
26tax imposed by the Use Tax Act or to pay the tax imposed by

SB2247- 197 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1this Act on those amounts. However, the lessor who purchased
2the motor vehicle assumes the liability for reporting and
3paying the tax on those amounts directly to the Department in
4the same form (Illinois Retailers' Occupation Tax, and local
5retailers' occupation taxes, if applicable) in which the
6retailer would have reported and paid such tax if the retailer
7had accounted for the tax to the Department. For amounts
8received by the lessor from the lessee that are not calculated
9at the time the lease is executed, the lessor must file the
10return and pay the tax to the Department by the due date
11otherwise required by this Act for returns other than
12transaction returns. If the retailer is entitled under this
13Act to a discount for collecting and remitting the tax imposed
14under this Act to the Department with respect to the sale of
15the motor vehicle to the lessor, then the right to the discount
16provided in this Act shall be transferred to the lessor with
17respect to the tax paid by the lessor for any amount received
18by the lessor from the lessee for the leased vehicle that is
19not calculated at the time the lease is executed; provided
20that the discount is only allowed if the return is timely filed
21and for amounts timely paid. The "selling price" of a motor
22vehicle that is sold on or after January 1, 2015 for the
23purpose of leasing for a defined period of longer than one year
24shall not be reduced by the value of or credit given for
25traded-in tangible personal property owned by the lessor, nor
26shall it be reduced by the value of or credit given for

SB2247- 198 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1traded-in tangible personal property owned by the lessee,
2regardless of whether the trade-in value thereof is assigned
3by the lessee to the lessor. In the case of a motor vehicle
4that is sold for the purpose of leasing for a defined period of
5longer than one year, the sale occurs at the time of the
6delivery of the vehicle, regardless of the due date of any
7lease payments. A lessor who incurs a Retailers' Occupation
8Tax liability on the sale of a motor vehicle coming off lease
9may not take a credit against that liability for the Use Tax
10the lessor paid upon the purchase of the motor vehicle (or for
11any tax the lessor paid with respect to any amount received by
12the lessor from the lessee for the leased vehicle that was not
13calculated at the time the lease was executed) if the selling
14price of the motor vehicle at the time of purchase was
15calculated using the definition of "selling price" as defined
16in this paragraph. Notwithstanding any other provision of this
17Act to the contrary, lessors shall file all returns and make
18all payments required under this paragraph to the Department
19by electronic means in the manner and form as required by the
20Department. This paragraph does not apply to leases of motor
21vehicles for which, at the time the lease is entered into, the
22term of the lease is not a defined period, including leases
23with a defined initial period with the option to continue the
24lease on a month-to-month or other basis beyond the initial
25defined period.
26 The phrase "like kind and character" shall be liberally

SB2247- 199 -LRB102 13440 HLH 18787 b
1construed (including but not limited to any form of motor
2vehicle for any form of motor vehicle, or any kind of farm or
3agricultural implement for any other kind of farm or
4agricultural implement), while not including a kind of item
5which, if sold at retail by that retailer, would be exempt from
6retailers' occupation tax and use tax as an isolated or
7occasional sale.
8 "Gross receipts" from the sales of tangible personal
9property at retail means the total selling price or the amount
10of such sales, as hereinbefore defined. In the case of charge
11and time sales, the amount thereof shall be included only as
12and when payments are received by the seller. Receipts or
13other consideration derived by a seller from the sale,

24property at retail by a person who does not hold himself out as
25being engaged (or who does not habitually engage) in selling
26such tangible personal property at retail, or a sale through a

21this Act, shall be the amount so separately charged, but not
22less than the cost of such property to the transferor; if no
23separate charge is made, the value of such property, for the
24purposes of this Act, is the cost to the transferor of such
