Sets forth the amounts of the credit. Sets forth conditions for the revocation of benefits under the Act. Amends the Illinois Income Tax Act to create the income tax credit certified under the Health Care Enterprise Zone Act. Amends the Property Tax Code. Provides that taxing districts may abate the property taxes for the property of any facility operated by a health care professional as part of his or her practice in a health care enterprise zone or specialty shortage zone certified under the Health Care Enterprise Zone Act.

 Fiscal Note (Commission on Gov't Forecasting and Accountability)
 Senate Bill 7 would reduce State corporate income tax revenues by an amount that cannot be determined due to the creation of the Health Care Enterprise Zone income tax credit. Senate Bill 7 could also reduce local property tax revenues due to the provision that would allow an abatement of property taxes in health care enterprise zones.
