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 636/5-5

    (35 ILCS 636/5-5)
    Sec. 5-5. Legislative intent. The General Assembly has authorized the corporate authorities of any municipality to impose various fees and taxes on the privilege of originating or receiving telecommunications, and on retailers engaged in the business of transmitting such telecommunications, all of which are remitted by such retailers directly to the imposing municipality. To simplify the imposition and collection of municipal telecommunications taxes and to reduce complication and burden, the General Assembly is repealing the municipal telecommunications tax, the municipal tax on the occupation or privilege of transmitting messages, and the municipal infrastructure maintenance fee, and is enacting this Simplified Municipal Telecommunications Tax Act which provides for a single municipally imposed telecommunications tax which, for municipalities with populations of less than 500,000, will be collected by the Illinois Department of Revenue, but which, for municipalities of 500,000 or more, will continue to be collected by such municipalities.
