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.

    Sec. 15. Notification by employer.
    (a) An employer shall be required to notify all employees that they may be eligible for the federal earned income tax credit and may either apply for the credit on their tax returns or receive the credit in advance payments during the year.

        (1) any notice available from the Internal Revenue
Service for this purpose, including, but not limited to, the Notice of a Possible Federal Tax Refund Due to the Earned Income Credit (EIC); or
        (2) any notice created by the employer, as long as it
contains substantially the same language as either or both notices described in paragraph (1) of this subsection or in subsection (a) of Section 20.
    (c) The notice prescribed in this Section shall be furnished within one week before or after, or at the same time, that the employer provides a Form W-2 to any employee covered by this Act.
