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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

Sunset of exemptions, credits, and deductions.
(a) The application
of every exemption, credit, and deduction against tax imposed by this Act that
becomes law after the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1994 shall be
limited by a reasonable and appropriate sunset date. A taxpayer is not
entitled to take the exemption, credit, or deduction for tax years beginning on
or after the sunset
date. Except as provided in subsection (b) of this Section, if a reasonable and appropriate sunset date is not
specified in the Public Act that creates the exemption, credit, or deduction, a
taxpayer shall not be entitled to take the exemption, credit, or deduction for
tax years beginning on or after 5 years after the effective date of the Public
Act creating the
exemption, credit, or deduction and thereafter; provided, however, that in
the case of any Public Act authorizing the issuance of tax-exempt obligations
that does not specify a sunset date for the exemption or deduction of income
derived from the obligations, the exemption or deduction shall not terminate
until after the obligations have been paid by the issuer.
(b) Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (a) of this Section, the sunset date of any exemption, credit, or deduction that is scheduled to expire in 2011, 2012, or 2013 by operation of this Section shall be extended by 5 years.
