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 173/5-10)
    Sec. 5-10. Imposition of tax. Beginning October 1, 2003, a tax is imposed upon the privilege of using in this State gas obtained in a purchase of out-of-state gas at the rate of 2.4 cents per therm or 5% of the purchase price for the billing period, whichever is the lower rate. Such tax rate shall be referred to as the "self-assessing purchaser tax rate". Beginning with bills issued by delivering suppliers on and after October 1, 2003, purchasers may elect an alternative tax rate of 2.4 cents per therm to be paid under the provisions of Section 5-15 of this Law to a delivering supplier maintaining a place of business in this State. Such tax rate shall be referred to as the "alternate tax rate". The tax imposed under this Section shall not apply to gas used by business enterprises certified under Section 9-222.1 of the Public Utilities Act, as amended, to the extent of such exemption and during the period of time specified by the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.
