Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Income Tax Act. In a Section concerning a credit for wages paid to ex-felons, removes a provision providing that the credit may not exceed $600 for each qualified ex-offender. Provides that the credit is exempt from the Act's automatic sunset. Amends the Economic Development for a Growing Economy Tax Credit Act. Provides that each Agreement entered into on or after the effective date of the amendatory Act shall contain a provision stating that the Applicant shall establish a goal of hiring qualified ex-offenders so that no less than 10% of the jobs created or retained under the Agreement are filled by qualified ex-offenders. Effective immediately.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 2
Deletes reference to:
35 ILCS 10/5-47 new

Provides that the total amount of the credit for wages paid to ex-offenders may not exceed $1,500 for each qualified ex-offender (the introduced bill removed that limitation). Provides that an ex offender includes a person who has been convicted of a crime in this State or of an offense in any other jurisdiction, not including any offense or attempted offense that would subject a person to registration under the Sex Offender Registration Act (now, a person who is an eligible offender, as defined under Section 5-5.5-5 of the Unified Code of Corrections). Provides that the taxpayer is entitled to the credit for hiring ex offenders if the taxpayer hired the ex offender within 3 years (instead of one year) after the offender was released from an Illinois adult correctional center. Removes provisions concerning the Economic Development for a Growing Economy Tax Credit Act.
