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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

(from Ch. 120, par. 2-206)
Tax credits for coal research and coal utilization equipment.
(a) Until January 1, 2005, each corporation subject to this Act
entitled to a credit against the tax imposed by subsections (a) and (b) of
Section 201 in an amount equal to 20% of the amount donated to the Illinois
Center for Research on Sulfur in Coal.
(b) Until January 1, 2005, each corporation subject to this Act
be entitled to a credit against the tax imposed by subsections (a) and (b)
of Section 201 in an amount equal to 5% of the amount spent during the
taxable year by the corporation on equipment purchased for the purpose of
maintaining or increasing the use of Illinois coal at any Illinois facility
owned, leased or operated by the corporation. Such equipment shall be
limited to direct coal combustion equipment and pollution control equipment
necessary thereto. For purposes of this credit, the amount spent on
qualifying equipment shall be defined as the basis of the equipment used to
compute the depreciation deduction for federal income tax purposes.
For tax years ending on or after December 31, 1987, the credit shall be
allowed for the tax year in which the amount is donated or the equipment
purchased is placed in service, or, if
the amount of the credit exceeds the tax liability for that year, whether
it exceeds the original liability or the liability as later amended, such
excess may be carried forward and applied to the tax liability of the 5
taxable years following the excess credit years. The credit shall be
applied to the earliest year for which there is a liability. If there is
credit from more than one tax year that is available to offset a liability,
earlier credit shall be applied first.
