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.

205 ILCS 670/18

    (205 ILCS 670/18) (from Ch. 17, par. 5424)
    Sec. 18. Advertising. Advertising for loans transacted under this Act may not be false, misleading or deceptive. That advertising, if it states a rate or amount of charge for a loan, must state the rate as an annual percentage rate. No licensee may advertise in any manner so as to indicate or imply that his interest rates or charges for loans are in any way "recommended", "approved", "set" or "established" by the State government or by this Act.
    If any advertisement to which this Section applies states the amount of any installment payment, the dollar amount of any finance charge, or the number of installments or the period of repayment, then the advertisement shall state all of the following items:
    (1) The amount of the loan.
    (2) The number, amount, and due dates or period of payments scheduled to repay the indebtedness if the credit is extended.
    (3) The rate of the finance charge expressed as an annual percentage rate.
