Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Use Tax Act and the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act. Provides that, notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary, no tax shall be imposed under those Acts upon the privilege of using in this State (for the Use Tax Act) or persons engaged in the business of selling at retail (for the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act) an individual item of clothing or footwear designed to be worn about the human body that (i) is purchased for a selling price of $200 or less and (ii) is purchased from 12:01 a.m. on the first Friday in August through midnight of the Sunday that follows 9 days later. Provides that a unit of local government may, by ordinance adopted by that unit of local government, opt out of the tax holiday and continue to collect and remit the tax imposed under those Acts during the tax holiday period. Provides that articles that are normally sold as a unit cannot be priced separately and sold as individual items in order to be subject to the holiday. Amends the State Mandates Act to require implementation without reimbursement. Effective immediately.

 Fiscal Note (Illinois Department of Revenue)
 The fiscal impact is unknown at this time, however, there would be a negative impact to State revenues and possibly also local revenues. There would also be some cost to administer this bill.
