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.

50 ILCS 430/2

    (50 ILCS 430/2) (from Ch. 146 1/2, par. 2)
    Sec. 2. Whenever a county, township, sanitary district, or other municipal corporation, a quasi municipal corporation, farm drainage district, river district, drainage and levee district, or fire protection district, does not have sufficient money in its treasury to meet all necessary expenses and liabilities thereof, including all expenses for building purposes, the proper authorities thereof may provide a fund to meet these expenses and liabilities by issuing and disposing of warrants drawn against and in anticipation of any taxes already levied by said authorities for the payment of these expenses and liabilities, to the extent of 85% of the total amount of those taxes. However, in any county in which there has been created a working cash fund pursuant to the provisions of "An Act to provide for the creation, setting apart, maintenance and administration of a working cash fund in counties having a population of five hundred thousand or more inhabitants," filed June 28, 1930, as amended, or in the Chicago Park District if there has been created a working cash fund pursuant to the provisions of "An Act authorizing the Chicago Park District to provide for the creation, maintenance and administration of a working cash fund," approved July 11, 1935, as amended, no tax anticipation warrants shall be drawn against taxes levied for general corporate purposes for such an amount that the aggregate of (1) the amount of those warrants, and the interest to accrue thereon, (2) the aggregate amount of those warrants theretofore drawn against those taxes and the interest accrued and to accrue thereon, (3) in case of counties having more than five hundred thousand population, the aggregate amount of notes issued in anticipation of taxes, and (4) the aggregate amount of money theretofore transferred from the working cash fund to the general fund of that county or park district, exceeds ninety per cent of the actual or estimated amount of those taxes extended or to be extended by the county clerk upon the books of the collector or collectors of State and county taxes within that county or park district, as the case may be. Tax anticipation warrants drawn and issued under the provisions of this Section shall show upon their face that they are payable in the numerical order of their issuance solely from the anticipated taxes when these anticipated taxes are collected and not otherwise. These warrants shall be received by any collector of taxes in payment of the taxes against which they are issued, and the taxes against which these warrants are drawn shall be set apart and held for their payment.
    The board of town trustees shall be the proper authority for the issuance and disposal of warrants drawn against and in anticipation of all taxes levied by the electors of a township at a town meeting.
