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.

    (625 ILCS 5/3-803) (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 3-803)
    Sec. 3-803. Reductions.
    (a) Reduction of fees and taxes prescribed in this Chapter shall be applicable only to vehicles newly-acquired by the owner after the beginning of a registration period or which become subject to registration after the beginning of a registration period as specified in this Act. The Secretary of State may deny a reduction as to any vehicle operated in this State without being properly and timely registered in Illinois under this Chapter, of a vehicle in violation of any provision of this Chapter, or upon detection of such violation by an audit, or upon determining that such vehicle was operated in Illinois before such violation. Bond or other security in the proper amount may be required by the Secretary of State while the matter is under investigation. Reductions shall be granted if a person becomes the owner after the dates specified or if a vehicle becomes subject to registration under this Act, as amended, after the dates specified.
    (b) Vehicles of the First Division. The annual fees and taxes prescribed by Section 3-806 shall be reduced by 50% on and after June 15, except as provided in Sections 3-414 and 3-802 of this Act.
    (c) Vehicles of the Second Division. The annual fees and taxes prescribed by Sections 3-402, 3-402.1, 3-815 and 3-819 and paid on a calendar year for such vehicles shall be reduced on a quarterly basis if the vehicle becomes subject to registration on and after March 31, June 30 or September 30. Where such fees and taxes are payable on a fiscal year basis, they shall be reduced on a quarterly basis on and after September 30, December 31 or March 31.
    (d) Two-year Registrations. The fees and taxes prescribed by Section 3-808 for 2-year registrations shall not be reduced in any event. However, the fees and taxes prescribed for all other 2-year registrations by this Act, shall be reduced as follows:
    By 25% on and after June 15;
    By 50% on and after December 15;
    By 75% on and after the next ensuing June 15.
    (e) The registration fees and taxes imposed upon certain vehicles shall not be reduced by any amount in any event in the following instances:
    Permits under Sections 3-403 and 3-811;
    Governmental or charitable vehicles under Section 3-808;
    Farm Machinery under Section 3-809;

    (f) The reductions provided for shall not apply to any vehicle of the first or second division registered by the same applicant in the prior registration year.
    The changes to this Section made by Public Act 84-210 take effect with the 1986 Calendar Registration Year.
    (g) Reductions shall in no event result in payment of a fee or tax less than $6, and the Secretary of State shall promulgate schedules of fees reflecting applicable reductions. Where any reduced amount is not stated in full dollars, the Secretary of State may adjust the amount due to the nearest full dollar amount.
    (h) The reductions provided for in subsections (a) through (g) of this Section shall not apply to those vehicles of the first or second division registered on a staggered registration basis.
    (i) A vehicle which becomes subject to registration during the last month of the current registration year is exempt from any applicable reduced fourth quarter or second semiannual registration fee, and may register for the subsequent registration year as its initial registration. This subsection does not include those apportioned and prorated fees under Sections 3-402 and 3-402.1 of this Code.
