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.

65 ILCS 5/8-3-14a

    (65 ILCS 5/8-3-14a)
    Sec. 8-3-14a. Municipal hotel use tax.
    (a) The corporate authorities of any municipality may impose a tax upon the privilege of renting or leasing rooms in a hotel within the municipality at a rate not to exceed 5% of the rental or lease payment. The corporate authorities may provide for the administration and enforcement of the tax and for the collection thereof from the persons subject to the tax, as the corporate authorities determine to be necessary or practical for the effective administration of the tax.
    (b) Each hotel in the municipality shall collect the tax from the person making the rental or lease payment at the time that the payment is tendered to the hotel. The hotel shall, as trustee, remit the tax to the municipality.
    (c) The tax authorized under this Section does not apply to any rental or lease payment by a permanent resident of that hotel or to any payment made to any hotel that is subject to the tax imposed under subsection (c) of Section 13 of the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority Act. A municipality may not impose a tax under this Section if it imposes a tax under Section 8-3-14. Nothing in this Section may be construed to authorize a municipality to impose a tax upon the privilege of engaging in any business that under the Constitution of the United States may not be made the subject of taxation by this State.
    (d) Except as otherwise provided in this Division, the moneys collected by a municipality under this Section may be expended solely to promote tourism and conventions within that municipality or otherwise to attract nonresident overnight visitors to the municipality. No moneys received under this Section may be used to advertise for or otherwise promote new competition in the hotel business.
    (e) As used in this Section, "hotel" has the meaning set forth in Section 2 of the Hotel Operators' Occupation Tax Act.
