Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act. Provides that the Act does not apply to the overcollection of any tax by a person, to the extent such overcollected tax is remitted to a government entity or agency. Provides that a tax is remitted to a governmental entity or agency when it is paid or transferred to the government entity or agency, or taken as a credit, allowance, or offset on a tax return or other tax form (including any amount of commission or discount taken by or allowed to a tax collector or taxpayer).
Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Practices Act. Provides that an action for damages may not be brought under the Act against a person as a result of the over collection of any tax by a person to the extent such over collected tax is remitted to a government entity or agency rather than providing that the Act does not apply to the over collection of any tax by a person to the extent such over collected tax is remitted to a government entity or agency. Effective immediately.
