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.

820 ILCS 170/5

    (820 ILCS 170/5) (from Ch. 48, par. 2755)
    Sec. 5. Declaration of public policy. In order to alleviate the tax burden of low-income persons in Illinois who have earned income and support one or more dependent children, the State should facilitate the furnishing of information to such persons about the availability of the federal earned income tax credit so that eligible taxpayers may claim that credit on their federal income tax returns. It is the intent of this Act to offer the most cost-effective assistance to eligible taxpayers through notices provided by their employers and by State government.
