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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

(from Ch. 23, par. 5B-2)
Assessment; no local authorization to tax.
(a) For the privilege of engaging in the occupation of long-term care
provider, beginning July 1, 2011 an assessment is imposed upon each long-term care provider in an amount equal to $6.07 times the number of occupied bed days due and payable each month. Notwithstanding any provision of any other Act to the
contrary, this assessment shall be construed as a tax, but shall not be billed or passed on to any resident of a nursing home operated by the nursing home provider.
(b) Nothing in this amendatory Act of 1992 shall be construed to
authorize any home rule unit or other unit of local government to license
for revenue or impose a tax or assessment upon long-term care providers or
the occupation of long-term care provider, or a tax or assessment measured
by the income or earnings or occupied bed days of a long-term care provider.
(c) The assessment imposed by this Section shall not be due and payable, however, until after the Department notifies the long-term care providers, in writing, that the payment methodologies to long-term care providers required under Section 5-5.4 of this Code have been approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the waivers under 42 CFR 433.68 for the assessment imposed by this Section, if necessary, have been granted by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
