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.

240 ILCS 40/5-15

    (240 ILCS 40/5-15)
    Sec. 5-15. Renewal of license.
    (a) The application for renewal of a license shall be filed with the Department annually within 90 days after the licensee's fiscal year end. The Department may, upon request of the licensee, payment of an extension fee of $100, $50 of which shall be deposited into the General Revenue Fund and the balance of which shall be deposited into the Regulatory Fund, and delivery to the Department of a preliminary financial statement compiled by an independent certified public accountant licensed under Illinois law or an entity permitted to engage in the practice of public accounting under item (b)(3) of Section 14 of the Illinois Public Accounting Act or, in the case of a Class II warehouseman or incidental grain dealer, a preliminary financial statement reviewed by an independent accountant that meets the financial requirements of subsection (b) of Section 5-25, extend, for up to but not exceeding 30 days, the period of time during which the application for renewal of a license may be filed. The Department, however, may provide by rule for reducing the filing period for an application for renewal of a license to no less than 60 days after the licensee's fiscal year end if the Department determines that an applicant has financial deficiencies, or there are other factors, that would create a substantial risk of failure. The Department must give written notice of the reduced filing period to the licensee at least 60 days before the earlier deadline imposed by the Department to file the application for renewal of a license. Notice is deemed given when mailed by certified mail, return receipt requested, properly addressed and with sufficient postage attached.
    (b) The application for renewal shall be accompanied by the financial statement required by Section 5-20.
    (c) Failure to meet all of the conditions to renew the license may result in a denial of renewal of the license. The licensee may request an administrative hearing to dispute the denial of renewal, after which the Director shall enter an order either renewing or refusing to renew the license.
