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.

under Section 13.1 of the Illinois Lottery Law, any person making a payment of the purchase price after December 31, 2013, shall withhold from the amount of each payment at a rate equal to the percentage tax rate for individuals provided in subsection (b) of Section 201.
    (b) Credit for taxes withheld. Any amount withheld under Subsection (a) shall be a credit against the Illinois income tax liability of the person to whom the payment of winnings was made for the taxable year in which that person incurred an Illinois income tax liability with respect to those winnings.
