Illinois Compiled Statutes

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.

    "Receiver" means a person who is licensed under Section 3c of the Motor Fuel Tax Law and who either produces, refines, blends, compounds or manufactures fuel in this State, or transports fuel into this State or receives fuel transported to him from without the State or exports fuel out of this State, or who is engaged in distribution of fuel primarily by tank car or tank truck, or both, and who operates an Illinois bulk plant that has active fuel bulk storage capacity of not less than 30,000 gallons.

415 ILCS 125/310

    (415 ILCS 125/310)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2025)
    Sec. 310. Environmental impact fee; imposition. Beginning January 1, 1996, all receivers of fuel are subject to an environmental impact fee of $60 per 7,500 gallons of fuel, or an equivalent amount per fraction thereof, that is sold or used in Illinois. The fee shall be paid by the receiver in this State who first sells or uses the fuel. The environmental impact fee imposed by this Law replaces the fee imposed under the corresponding provisions of Article 3 of Public Act 89-428. Environmental impact fees paid under that Article 3 shall satisfy the receiver's corresponding liability under this Law.
    A receiver of fuels is subject to the fee without regard to whether the fuel is intended to be used for operation of motor vehicles on the public highways and waters. However, no fee shall be imposed upon the importation or receipt of aviation fuels and kerosene at airports with over 170,000 operations per year, located in a city of more than 1,000,000 inhabitants, for sale to or use by holders of certificates of public convenience and necessity or foreign air carrier permits, issued by the United States Department of Transportation, and their air carrier affiliates, or upon the importation or receipt of aviation fuels and kerosene at facilities owned or leased by those certificate or permit holders and used in their activities at an airport described above. In addition, no fee may be imposed upon the importation or receipt of diesel fuel or liquefied natural gas sold to or used by a rail carrier registered under Section 18c-7201 of the Illinois Vehicle Code or otherwise recognized by the Illinois Commerce Commission as a rail carrier, to the extent used directly in railroad operations. In addition, no fee may be imposed when the sale is made with delivery to a purchaser outside this State or when the sale is made to a person holding a valid license as a receiver. In addition, no fee shall be imposed upon diesel fuel or liquefied natural gas consumed or used in the operation of ships, barges, or vessels, that are used primarily in or for the transportation of property in interstate commerce for hire on rivers bordering on this State, if the diesel fuel or liquefied natural gas is delivered by a licensed receiver to the purchaser's barge, ship, or vessel while it is afloat upon that bordering river. A specific notation thereof shall be made on the invoices or sales slips covering each sale. Beginning January 1, 2021 no fee shall be imposed under this Section on receivers of aviation fuel for sale or use for so long as the revenue use requirements of 49 U.S.C. 47107(b) and 49 U.S.C. 47133 are binding on the State.

415 ILCS 125/315

    (415 ILCS 125/315)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2025)
    Sec. 315. Fee on receivers of fuel for sale or use; collection and reporting. A person that is required to pay the fee imposed by this Law shall pay the fee to the Department by return showing all fuel purchased, acquired, or received and sold, distributed or used during the preceding calendar month, including losses of fuel as the result of evaporation or shrinkage due to temperature variations, and such other reasonable information as the Department may require. Losses of fuel as the result of evaporation or shrinkage due to temperature variations may not exceed 1% of the total gallons in storage at the beginning of the month, plus the receipts of gallonage during the month, minus the gallonage remaining in storage at the end of the month. Any loss reported that is in excess of this amount shall be subject to the fee imposed by Section 310 of this Law. On and after July 1, 2001, for each 6-month period January through June, net losses of fuel (for each category of fuel that is required to be reported on a return) as the result of evaporation or shrinkage due to temperature variations may not exceed 1% of the total gallons in storage at the beginning of each January, plus the receipts of gallonage each January through June, minus the gallonage remaining in storage at the end of each June. On and after July 1, 2001, for each 6-month period July through December, net losses of fuel (for each category of fuel that is required to be reported on a return) as the result of evaporation or shrinkage due to temperature variations may not exceed 1% of the total gallons in storage at the beginning of each July, plus the receipts of gallonage each July through December, minus the gallonage remaining in storage at the end of each December. Any net loss reported that is in excess of this amount shall be subject to the fee imposed by Section 310 of this Law. For purposes of this Section, "net loss" means the number of gallons gained through temperature variations minus the number of gallons lost through temperature variations or evaporation for each of the respective 6-month periods.
    The return shall be prescribed by the Department and shall be filed between the 1st and 20th days of each calendar month. The Department may, in its discretion, combine the return filed under this Law with the return filed under Section 2b of the Motor Fuel Tax Law. If the return is timely filed, the receiver may take a discount of 2% through June 30, 2003 and 1.75% thereafter to reimburse himself for the expenses incurred in keeping records, preparing and filing returns, collecting and remitting the fee, and supplying data to the Department on request. However, the discount applies only to the amount of the fee payment that accompanies a return that is timely filed in accordance with this Section. The discount is not permitted on fees paid on aviation fuel sold or used on and after December 1, 2019 and through December 31, 2020.
    Beginning with returns due on January 20, 2019 and ending with returns due on January 20, 2021, each retailer required or authorized to collect the fee imposed by this Act on aviation fuel at retail in this State during the preceding calendar month shall, instead of reporting and paying tax on aviation fuel as otherwise required by this Section, report and pay such tax on a separate aviation fuel tax return, or on a separate line on the return. The requirements related to the return shall be as otherwise provided in this Section. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Act to the contrary, retailers collecting fees on aviation fuel shall file all aviation fuel tax returns and shall make all aviation fuel fee payments by electronic means in the manner and form required by the Department. For purposes of this paragraph, "aviation fuel" means jet fuel and aviation gasoline.
    If any payment provided for in this Section exceeds the receiver's liabilities under this Act, as shown on an original return, the Department may authorize the receiver to credit such excess payment against liability subsequently to be remitted to the Department under this Act, in accordance with reasonable rules adopted by the Department. If the Department subsequently determines that all or any part of the credit taken was not actually due to the receiver, the receiver's discount shall be reduced by an amount equal to the difference between the discount as applied to the credit taken and that actually due, and that receiver shall be liable for penalties and interest on such difference.

    (415 ILCS 125/320)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2025)
    Sec. 320. Deposit of fee receipts. Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph, all money received by the Department under this Law shall be deposited in the Underground Storage Tank Fund created by Section 57.11 of the Environmental Protection Act. All money received for aviation fuel by the Department under this Law on or after December 1, 2019 and ending with returns due on January 20, 2021, shall be immediately paid over by the Department to the State Aviation Program Fund. The Department shall only pay such moneys into the State Aviation Program Fund under this Act for so long as the revenue use requirements of 49 U.S.C. 47107(b) and 49 U.S.C. 47133 are binding on the State. For purposes of this Section, "aviation fuel" means jet fuel and aviation gasoline.

    In addition, Sections 2d, 12, 12a, 13a.8, 14, 15, 16, 17, 17a, and 18 of the Motor Fuel Tax Law shall apply as far as practicable, to the subject matter of this Law to the same extent as if those provisions were included in this Law.
