Illinois Compiled Statutes

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 5/701

    (35 ILCS 5/701) (from Ch. 120, par. 7-701)
    Sec. 701. Requirement and Amount of Withholding.
    (a) In General. Every employer maintaining an office or transacting business within this State and required under the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code to withhold a tax on:
        (1) compensation paid in this State (as determined
    
under Section 304(a)(2)(B) to an individual; or
        (2) payments described in subsection (b) shall deduct
    
and withhold from such compensation for each payroll period (as defined in Section 3401 of the Internal Revenue Code) an amount equal to the amount by which such individual's compensation exceeds the proportionate part of this withholding exemption (computed as provided in Section 702) attributable to the payroll period for which such compensation is payable multiplied by a percentage equal to the percentage tax rate for individuals provided in subsection (b) of Section 201.
    (b) Payment to Residents. Any payment (including compensation, but not including a payment from which withholding is required under Section 710 of this Act) to a resident by a payor maintaining an office or transacting business within this State (including any agency, officer, or employee of this State or of any political subdivision of this State) and on which withholding of tax is required under the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code shall be deemed to be compensation paid in this State by an employer to an employee for the purposes of Article 7 and Section 601(b)(1) to the extent such payment is included in the recipient's base income and not subjected to withholding by another state. Notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary, no amount shall be withheld from unemployment insurance benefit payments made to an individual pursuant to the Unemployment Insurance Act unless the individual has voluntarily elected the withholding pursuant to rules promulgated by the Director of Employment Security.
    (c) Special Definitions. Withholding shall be considered required under the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code to the extent the Internal Revenue Code either requires withholding or allows for voluntary withholding the payor and recipient have entered into such a voluntary withholding agreement. For the purposes of Article 7 and Section 1002(c) the term "employer" includes any payor who is required to withhold tax pursuant to this Section.
    (d) Reciprocal Exemption. The Director may enter into an agreement with the taxing authorities of any state which imposes a tax on or measured by income to provide that compensation paid in such state to residents of this State shall be exempt from withholding of such tax; in such case, any compensation paid in this State to residents of such state shall be exempt from withholding. All reciprocal agreements shall be subject to the requirements of Section 2505-575 of the Department of Revenue Law (20 ILCS 2505/2505-575).
    (e) Notwithstanding subsection (a)(2) of this Section, no withholding is required on payments for which withholding is required under Section 3405 or 3406 of the Internal Revenue Code.

    Sec. 702. Amount Exempt from Withholding. For purposes of this Section an employee shall be entitled to a withholding exemption in an amount equal to the basic amount in Section 204(b) for each personal or dependent exemption which he is entitled to claim on his federal return pursuant to Section 151 of the Internal Revenue Code; plus an allowance equal to $1,000 for each $1,000 he is entitled to deduct from gross income in arriving at adjusted gross income pursuant to Section 62 of the Internal Revenue Code; plus an additional allowance equal to $1,000 for each $1,000 eligible for subtraction on his Illinois income tax return as Illinois real estate taxes paid during the taxable year; or in any lesser amount claimed by him. Every employee shall furnish to his employer such information as is required for the employer to make an accurate withholding under this Act. The employer may rely on this information for withholding purposes. If any employee fails or refuses to furnish such information, the employer shall withhold the full rate of tax from the employee's total compensation.

For purposes of this Section, Saturdays, Sundays, legal holidays and local bank holidays are not banking days. A quarter monthly period, for purposes of this subsection, ends on the 7th, 15th, 22nd and last day of each calendar month. Every such employer shall for each calendar quarter, on or before the last day of the first month following the close of such quarter, and for the calendar year, on or before January 31 of the succeeding calendar year, make a return with respect to such taxes in such form and manner as the Department may by regulations prescribe, and pay to the Department or to a depositary designated by the Department all withheld taxes not previously paid to the Department.

    (e) Annual Return. The Department may, as it deems appropriate, prescribe by regulation for the filing of annual returns in lieu of quarterly returns described in subsections (b) and (c).

the Department, on or before the due date for each return required to be filed under this Section, any tax withheld or required to be withheld during the period for which the return is due and not previously paid to the Department.

        (1) Permit employers, in lieu of the requirements of
    
subsections (b) and (c), to file annual returns due on or before January 31 of the year for taxes withheld or required to be withheld during the previous calendar year and, if the aggregate amounts required to be withheld by the employer under this Article 7 (other than amounts required to be withheld under Section 709.5) do not exceed $1,000 for the previous calendar year, to pay the taxes required to be shown on each such return no later than the due date for such return.

        (3) Designate one or more depositories to which
    
payment of taxes required to be withheld under this Article 7 must be paid by some or all employers.

    (g) For amounts deducted or withheld after December 31, 2009, a taxpayer who makes an election under subsection (f) of Section 5-15 of the Economic Development for a Growing Economy Tax Credit Act for a taxable year shall be allowed a credit against payments due under this Section for amounts withheld during the first calendar year beginning after the end of that taxable year equal to the amount of the credit for the incremental income tax attributable to full-time employees of the taxpayer awarded to the taxpayer by the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity under the Economic Development for a Growing Economy Tax Credit Act for the taxable year and credits not previously claimed and allowed to be carried forward under Section 211(4) of this Act as provided in subsection (f) of Section 5-15 of the Economic Development for a Growing Economy Tax Credit Act. The credit or credits may not reduce the taxpayer's obligation for any payment due under this Section to less than zero. If the amount of the credit or credits exceeds the total payments due under this Section with respect to amounts withheld during the calendar year, the excess may be carried forward and applied against the taxpayer's liability under this Section in the succeeding calendar years as allowed to be carried forward under paragraph (4) of Section 211 of this Act. The credit or credits shall be applied to the earliest year for which there is a tax liability. If there are credits from more than one taxable year that are available to offset a liability, the earlier credit shall be applied first.

For purposes of this subsection (g), the term taxpayer shall include taxpayer and members of the taxpayer's unitary business group as defined under paragraph (27) of subsection (a) of Section 1501 of this Act. This Section is exempt from the provisions of Section 250 of this Act.
    (h) An employer may claim a credit against payments due under this Section for amounts withheld during the first calendar year ending after the date on which a tax credit certificate was issued under Section 35 of the Small Business Job Creation Tax Credit Act. The credit shall be equal to the amount shown on the certificate, but may not reduce the taxpayer's obligation for any payment due under this Section to less than zero. If the amount of the credit exceeds the total payments due under this Section with respect to amounts withheld during the calendar year, the excess may be carried forward and applied against the taxpayer's liability under this Section in the 5 succeeding calendar years. The credit shall be applied to the earliest year for which there is a tax liability. If there are credits from more than one calendar year that are available to offset a liability, the earlier credit shall be applied first. This Section is exempt from the provisions of Section 250 of this Act.

            (A) file all returns that the partner,
        
shareholder, or beneficiary is required to file under Section 502 of this Act and make timely payment of all taxes imposed under Section 201 of this Act or under this Section on the partner, shareholder, or beneficiary with respect to income of the partnership, S corporation, or trust; and

        (2) The Department may revoke the exemption provided
    
by this subsection (c) at any time that it determines that the nonresident partner, shareholder, or beneficiary is not abiding by the terms of the certificate. The Department shall notify the partnership, S corporation, or trust that it has revoked a certificate by notice left at the usual place of business of the partnership, S corporation, or trust or by mail to the last known address of the partnership, S corporation, or trust.
        (3) A partnership, S corporation, or trust that
    
receives a certificate under this subsection (c) properly completed by a nonresident partner, shareholder, or beneficiary shall not be required to withhold any amount from that partner, shareholder, or beneficiary, the payment of which would be due under Section 711(a-5) of this Act after the receipt of the certificate and no earlier than 60 days after the Department has notified the partnership, S corporation, or trust that the certificate has been revoked.
