Public Act 101-0047
 
HB0938 EnrolledLRB101 03318 AWJ 48326 b

    AN ACT concerning local government.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 5. The Illinois Municipal Code is amended by
changing Section 8-11-1.3 as follows:
 
    (65 ILCS 5/8-11-1.3)  (from Ch. 24, par. 8-11-1.3)
    Sec. 8-11-1.3. Non-Home Rule Municipal Retailers'
Occupation Tax Act. The corporate authorities of a non-home
rule municipality may impose a tax upon all persons engaged in
the business of selling tangible personal property, other than
on an item of tangible personal property which is titled and
registered by an agency of this State's Government, at retail
in the municipality for expenditure on public infrastructure or
for property tax relief or both as defined in Section 8-11-1.2
if approved by referendum as provided in Section 8-11-1.1, of
the gross receipts from such sales made in the course of such
business. If the tax is approved by referendum on or after July
14, 2010 (the effective date of Public Act 96-1057), the
corporate authorities of a non-home rule municipality may,
until July 1, 2030 December 31, 2020, use the proceeds of the
tax for expenditure on municipal operations, in addition to or
in lieu of any expenditure on public infrastructure or for
property tax relief. The tax imposed may not be more than 1%
and may be imposed only in 1/4% increments. The tax may not be
imposed on tangible personal property taxed at the 1% rate
under the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act. The tax imposed by a
municipality pursuant to this Section and all civil penalties
that may be assessed as an incident thereof shall be collected
and enforced by the State Department of Revenue. The
certificate of registration which is issued by the Department
to a retailer under the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act shall
permit such retailer to engage in a business which is taxable
under any ordinance or resolution enacted pursuant to this
Section without registering separately with the Department
under such ordinance or resolution or under this Section. The
Department shall have full power to administer and enforce this
Section; to collect all taxes and penalties due hereunder; to
dispose of taxes and penalties so collected in the manner
hereinafter provided, and to determine all rights to credit
memoranda, arising on account of the erroneous payment of tax
or penalty hereunder. In the administration of, and compliance
with, this Section, the Department and persons who are subject
to this Section shall have the same rights, remedies,
privileges, immunities, powers and duties, and be subject to
the same conditions, restrictions, limitations, penalties and
definitions of terms, and employ the same modes of procedure,
as are prescribed in Sections 1, 1a, 1a-1, 1d, 1e, 1f, 1i, 1j,
2 through 2-65 (in respect to all provisions therein other than
the State rate of tax), 2c, 3 (except as to the disposition of
taxes and penalties collected), 4, 5, 5a, 5b, 5c, 5d, 5e, 5f,
5g, 5h, 5i, 5j, 5k, 5l, 6, 6a, 6b, 6c, 6d, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12
and 13 of the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act and Section 3-7 of
the Uniform Penalty and Interest Act as fully as if those
provisions were set forth herein.
    No municipality may impose a tax under this Section unless
the municipality also imposes a tax at the same rate under
Section 8-11-1.4 of this Code.
    Persons subject to any tax imposed pursuant to the
authority granted in this Section may reimburse themselves for
their seller's tax liability hereunder by separately stating
such tax as an additional charge, which charge may be stated in
combination, in a single amount, with State tax which sellers
are required to collect under the Use Tax Act, pursuant to such
bracket schedules as the Department may prescribe.
    Whenever the Department determines that a refund should be
made under this Section to a claimant instead of issuing a
credit memorandum, the Department shall notify the State
Comptroller, who shall cause the order to be drawn for the
amount specified, and to the person named, in such notification
from the Department. Such refund shall be paid by the State
Treasurer out of the non-home rule municipal retailers'
occupation tax fund.
    The Department shall forthwith pay over to the State
Treasurer, ex officio, as trustee, all taxes and penalties
collected hereunder.
    As soon as possible after the first day of each month,
beginning January 1, 2011, upon certification of the Department
of Revenue, the Comptroller shall order transferred, and the
Treasurer shall transfer, to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund the
local sales tax increment, as defined in the Innovation
Development and Economy Act, collected under this Section
during the second preceding calendar month for sales within a
STAR bond district.
    After the monthly transfer to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund,
on or before the 25th day of each calendar month, the
Department shall prepare and certify to the Comptroller the
disbursement of stated sums of money to named municipalities,
the municipalities to be those from which retailers have paid
taxes or penalties hereunder to the Department during the
second preceding calendar month. The amount to be paid to each
municipality shall be the amount (not including credit
memoranda) collected hereunder during the second preceding
calendar month by the Department plus an amount the Department
determines is necessary to offset any amounts which were
erroneously paid to a different taxing body, and not including
an amount equal to the amount of refunds made during the second
preceding calendar month by the Department on behalf of such
municipality, and not including any amount which the Department
determines is necessary to offset any amounts which were
payable to a different taxing body but were erroneously paid to
the municipality, and not including any amounts that are
transferred to the STAR Bonds Revenue Fund, less 1.5% of the
remainder, which the Department shall transfer into the Tax
Compliance and Administration Fund. The Department, at the time
of each monthly disbursement to the municipalities, shall
prepare and certify to the State Comptroller the amount to be
transferred into the Tax Compliance and Administration Fund
under this Section. Within 10 days after receipt, by the
Comptroller, of the disbursement certification to the
municipalities and the Tax Compliance and Administration Fund
provided for in this Section to be given to the Comptroller by
the Department, the Comptroller shall cause the orders to be
drawn for the respective amounts in accordance with the
directions contained in such certification.
    For the purpose of determining the local governmental unit
whose tax is applicable, a retail sale, by a producer of coal
or other mineral mined in Illinois, is a sale at retail at the
place where the coal or other mineral mined in Illinois is
extracted from the earth. This paragraph does not apply to coal
or other mineral when it is delivered or shipped by the seller
to the purchaser at a point outside Illinois so that the sale
is exempt under the Federal Constitution as a sale in
interstate or foreign commerce.
    Nothing in this Section shall be construed to authorize a
municipality to impose a tax upon the privilege of engaging in
any business which under the constitution of the United States
may not be made the subject of taxation by this State.
    When certifying the amount of a monthly disbursement to a
municipality under this Section, the Department shall increase
or decrease such amount by an amount necessary to offset any
misallocation of previous disbursements. The offset amount
shall be the amount erroneously disbursed within the previous 6
months from the time a misallocation is discovered.
    The Department of Revenue shall implement Public Act 91-649
this amendatory Act of the 91st General Assembly so as to
collect the tax on and after January 1, 2002.
    As used in this Section, "municipal" and "municipality"
means a city, village or incorporated town, including an
incorporated town which has superseded a civil township.
    This Section shall be known and may be cited as the
"Non-Home Rule Municipal Retailers' Occupation Tax Act".
