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 630/12

    (35 ILCS 630/12) (from Ch. 120, par. 2012)
    Sec. 12. For the purpose of administering and enforcing the provisions of this Article, the Department or any officer or employee of the Department designated, in writing, by the Director thereof, may hold investigations and, except for matters otherwise reserved to the Illinois Independent Tax Tribunal, may hold hearings concerning any matters covered by this Article and may examine any books, papers, records or memoranda bearing upon the business transacted or purchased by any such retailer or taxpayer and may require the attendance of such retailer or taxpayer or any officer or employee of such, or of any person having knowledge of such business, and may take testimony and require proof of its information. In the conduct of any investigation or hearing, neither the Department nor any officer or employee thereof shall be bound by the technical rules of evidence, and no informality in any proceeding, or in the manner of taking testimony, shall invalidate any order, decision, rule or regulation made or approved or confirmed by the Department. The Director or any officer or employee thereof shall have power to administer oaths to any such persons. The books, papers, records and memoranda of the Department, or parts thereof, may be provided in any hearing, investigation or legal proceeding by a reproduced copy thereof under the certificate of the Director. Such reproduced copy shall, without further proof, be admitted into evidence before the Department or in any legal proceeding.
