Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
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 Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

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.

35 ILCS 5/509.1

    (35 ILCS 5/509.1)
    Sec. 509.1. Removal of excess tax-checkoff funds. Notwithstanding any provisions of this Act to the contrary, beginning on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 95th General Assembly, there may not be more than 15 tax-checkoff funds contained on the individual tax return form at any one time. Each year, the Department shall determine whether the sum of (i) the number of new tax-checkoff funds created by the General Assembly during that year plus (ii) the number of tax-checkoff funds that collected at least $100,000 during the previous year exceeds 15. If so, then the Department shall remove a number of tax-checkoff funds that were on the return during the previous year that is equal to the sum of items (i) and (ii) minus 15, starting with the tax-checkoff fund that received the least amount of contributions and working upward until a sufficient number of funds have been removed. The Hunger Relief Fund checkoff established under Section 507SS shall be included among the 15 tax-checkoff funds as provided in subsection (d) of Section 509 of this Act.
    For taxable years ending on or after December 31, 2012, the Diabetes Research Checkoff Fund checkoff contained in Section 507GG of this Act shall be included on the individual tax return form notwithstanding the provisions of this Section. The Diabetes Research Checkoff Fund checkoff shall not be included when calculating the 15 tax-checkoff fund limitation set forth in this Section.
