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.
(35 ILCS 105/3a)
(from Ch. 120, par. 439.3a)
The tax imposed by the Act shall when collected be stated as
a distinct item separate and apart from the selling price of the tangible
personal property. However, where it is not possible to state the sales
tax separately in situations such as sales from vending machines or sales
of liquor by the drink the Department may by rule exempt such sales from
this requirement so long as purchasers are notified by a sign that the tax
is included in the selling price.
In addition, retailers who sell items that would have been taxed at the 1% rate but for the 0% rate imposed under this amendatory Act of the 102nd General Assembly shall, to the extent feasible, include the following statement on any cash register tape, receipt, invoice, or sales ticket issued to customers: "From July 1, 2022 through July 1, 2023, the State of Illinois sales tax on groceries is 0%.". If it is not feasible for the retailer to include the statement on any cash register tape, receipt, invoice, or sales ticket issued to customers, then the retailer shall post the statement on a sign that is clearly visible to customers. The sign shall be no smaller than 4 inches by 8 inches.
