(35 ILCS 5/502.1)
Beginning with taxable years ending on or after December 31, 2010, individual purchasers with an annual use tax liability that does not exceed $600 may, in lieu of the filing and payment requirements of Section 10 of the Use Tax Act, file and pay in compliance with this Section.
Beginning with taxable years ending on or after December 31, 2010, the Department shall print on its standard individual income tax form a provision indicating that if the taxpayer's annual individual use tax liability does not exceed $600, he or she may report and pay individual use tax liability at the same time as his or her individual income tax liability. If the taxpayer elects to report and pay his or her individual use tax liability at the same time as his or her standard individual income tax liability in accordance with this Section, then the use tax shown due on the return may be (i) treated as being due at the same time as the income tax obligation, (ii) assessed, collected, and deposited in the same manner as income taxes, and (iii) treated as an income tax liability for all purposes.
The individual income tax return instructions shall include information explaining the tax imposed under the Use Tax Act and informing taxpayers how to report and pay their use tax obligations, including specific information on how to report and pay individual use tax at the same time as the individual income tax return is filed.
This Section shall not apply to any amended return.
