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.

55 ILCS 105/1

    (55 ILCS 105/1) (from Ch. 91 1/2, par. 201)
    Sec. 1. Facilities or services; tax levy. Any county may provide facilities or services for the benefit of its residents who are persons with intellectual or developmental disabilities and who are not eligible to participate in any such program conducted under Article 14 of the School Code, or may contract therefor with any privately or publicly operated entity which provides facilities or services either in or out of such county.
    For such purpose, the county board may levy an annual tax of not to exceed .1% upon all of the taxable property in the county at the value thereof, as equalized or assessed by the Department of Revenue. Taxes first levied under this Section on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 96th General Assembly are subject to referendum approval under Section 1.1 or 1.2 of this Act. Such tax shall be levied and collected in the same manner as other county taxes, but shall not be included in any limitation otherwise prescribed as to the rate or amount of county taxes but shall be in addition thereto and in excess thereof. When collected, such tax shall be paid into a special fund in the county treasury, to be designated as the "Fund for Persons With a Developmental Disability", and shall be used only for the purpose specified in this Section. The levying of this annual tax shall not preclude the county from the use of other federal, State, or local funds for the purpose of providing facilities or services for the care and treatment of its residents who are mentally retarded or under a developmental disability.
