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 615/2

    (35 ILCS 615/2) (from Ch. 120, par. 467.17)
    Sec. 2. A tax is imposed upon persons engaged in the business of distributing, supplying, furnishing or selling gas to persons for use or consumption and not for resale at the rate of 2.4 cents per therm of all gas which is so distributed, supplied, furnished, sold or transported to or for each customer in the course of such business, or 5% of the gross receipts received from each customer from such business, whichever is the lower rate as applied to each customer for that customer's billing period, provided that any change in rate imposed by this amendatory Act of 1985 shall become effective only with bills having a meter reading date on or after January 1, 1986. However, such taxes are not imposed with respect to any business in interstate commerce, or otherwise to the extent to which such business may not, under the Constitution and statutes of the United States, be made the subject of taxation by this State.
    Nothing in this amendatory Act of 1985 shall impose a tax with respect to any transaction with respect to which no tax was imposed immediately preceding the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1985.
    Beginning with bills issued to customers on and after October 1, 2003, no tax shall be imposed under this Act on transactions with customers who incur a tax liability under the Gas Use Tax Law.
