Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (35 ILCS 5/223)
    Sec. 223. Hospital credit.
    (a) For tax years ending on or after December 31, 2012, 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 and Subchapter S of the Internal Revenue Code. A transfer of 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 offset a liability, the earlier credit shall be applied first. In no event shall a credit under this Section reduce the taxpayer's liability to less than zero.
