        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                
        Deletes  everything  after  the  enacting  clause.   Creates  the      
   Simplified Sales and Use Tax Administration Act.   Provides  that  the      
   Department  of  Revenue  is  authorized  and  directed to enter into a      
   Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement with one  or  more  states  to      
   simplify  and  modernize  sales and use tax administration in order to      
   substantially reduce the burden of tax compliance for all sellers  and      
   for  all types of commerce.  Sets forth requirements for any agreement      
   entered  into.   Provides  that  "certified  automated  system"  means      
   software certified jointly by the states that are signatories  to  the      
   Agreement  to  calculate  the  tax  imposed  by each jurisdiction on a      
   transaction, determine the amount of tax to remit to  the  appropriate      
   state,  and  maintain  a  record  of  the  transaction.  Provides that      
   "certified service provider" means an agent certified jointly  by  the      
   states  that  are  signatories  to the Agreement to perform all of the      
   seller's sales tax functions.  Effective immediately.                       
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 2.                                                
        Provides that the Department of Revenue is  authorized  to  enter      
   into  the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement (now, authorized and

        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 3.                                                
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          65 ILCS 5/8-11-6                from Ch. 24, par. 8-11-6             
          70 ILCS 3615/4.03               from Ch. 111 2/3, par. 704.03        
          70 ILCS 3720/4                  from Ch. 111 2/3, par. 254           
        Provides  that  the  term  "sales  tax"  includes  local  service      
   occupation and retailers' occupation taxes.   Provides  that  "seller"      
   means  any  person making sales of personal property or services (now,      
   sales, leases, or rentals of personal property or services).  Provides      
   that "use tax" also means  a  local  use  tax  imposed  in  home  rule      
   municipalities  with 2,000,000 or more inhabitants on the privilege of      
   using in the municipality any  item  of  tangible  personal  property,      
   other  than  tangible  personal  property titled or registered with an      
   agency of the State's government, that is purchased at retail  from  a      
   retailer  located  outside the corporate limits of the municipality if      
   the State and the municipality have entered  into  an  agreement  that      
   provides  for administration of the tax by the State.  Amends the Home      
   Rule Municipal Tax Act provisions of the Illinois  Municipal  Code  to      
   authorize  the  collection  of this local use tax by the Department of      
   Revenue pursuant to  an  agreement  between  the  Department  and  the      
   municipality.   Provides that nothing in the Streamlined Sales and Use      
   Tax Agreement shall require a signatory  state  to  administer  a  tax      
   levied  by  a  local jurisdiction unless the tax is a sales tax or use      
   tax as defined by the signatory state in the Act by  which  the  state      
   authorizes   its  entry  into  the  Agreement.   Amends  the  Regional      
   Transportation Authority Act and the Water Commission Act of  1985  to      
   name 2 local service occupation taxes imposed under those Acts.  Makes      
   other changes.
