Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Income Tax Act. Provides that if (i) an employer hires an employee on or after the effective date of the amendatory Act to fill a newly created full-time position, (ii) that employee's annualized salary attributable to the employer is at least $22,000 but not more than $40,000, and (iii) the employee is employed by the employer for 6 consecutive calendar months immediately after the date of hire, then, beginning with the first payment due after the end of that 6-month period, the employer may retain from the amount deducted and withheld for that employee an amount equal to 25% of the total amount deducted and withheld for that employee during that 6-month period. Provides that, if an employer is eligible to retain an amount that exceeds the amount that the employer is required to withhold for that employee for that payment period, then the excess may be carried forward until the entire amount has been retained. Provides that the amount retained must be recorded on the employer's withholding tax return. Provides that the Illinois income tax liability of every employee whose taxes are withheld and retained by his or her employer must be calculated as if the retained amounts had been paid to the Department.
