Rental Purchase Agreement Occupation Tax.
A tax is imposed upon persons engaged in this State in the business of renting merchandise under a rental-purchase agreement in Illinois at the rate of 6.25% of the gross receipts received from the business. Every person engaged in this State in the business of renting merchandise shall apply to the Department (upon a form prescribed and furnished by the Department) for a certificate of registration under this Act. The certificate of registration which is issued by the Department to a retailer under the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act shall permit the merchant to engage in a business that is taxable under this Section without registering separately with the Department.
The Department shall have full power to administer and enforce this Section, to collect all taxes and penalties due hereunder, to dispose of taxes and penalties so collected in the manner hereinafter provided, and to determine all rights to credit memoranda, arising on account of the erroneous payment of tax or penalty hereunder. In the administration of, and compliance with, this Section, the Department and persons who are subject to this Section shall have the same rights, remedies, privileges, immunities, powers and duties, and be subject to the same conditions, restrictions, limitations, penalties and definitions of terms, and employ the same modes of procedure, as are prescribed in Sections 1, 1a, 2, 2-10 through 2-65 (in respect to all provisions therein other than the State rate of tax), 2a, 2b, 2c, 3 (except provisions relating to transaction returns), 4, 5, 5a, 5b, 5c, 5d, 5e, 5f, 5g, 5i, 5j, 6, 6a, 6b, 6c, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 11a, 12, and 13 of the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act and Section 3-7 of the Uniform Penalty and Interest Act as fully as if those provisions were set forth herein.
