Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
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-5)
Annual reporting; penalty; maintenance of records.
(a) After December 31 of each year, and on or before
March 31 of the succeeding year, every long-term care provider subject to
assessment under this Article shall file a report with the Illinois
Department. The report shall be in a form and manner prescribed by the Illinois Department and shall state the revenue received by the long-term care provider, reported in such categories as may be required by the Illinois Department, and other reasonable information the Illinois Department requires for the administration of its responsibilities under this Code.
(b) If a long-term care provider operates or maintains
more than one long-term care facility in this State, the provider
may not file a single return covering all those long-term care
facilities, but shall file a separate return for each
long-term care facility and shall compute and pay the assessment
for each long-term care facility separately.
(c) Notwithstanding any other provision in this Article, in
the case of a person who ceases to operate or maintain a long-term
care facility in respect of which the person is subject to
assessment under this Article as a long-term care provider, the person shall file a final, amended return with the Illinois
Department not more than 90 days after the cessation reflecting
the adjustment and shall pay with the final return the
assessment for the year as so adjusted (to the extent not
previously paid). If a person fails to file a final amended return on a timely basis, there shall, unless waived by the Illinois Department for reasonable cause, be added to the assessment due a penalty assessment equal to 25% of the assessment due.
(d) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Article, a
provider who commences operating or maintaining a long-term care
facility that was under a prior ownership and remained licensed by the Department of Public Health shall notify the Illinois Department of the change in ownership and shall be responsible to immediately pay any prior amounts owed by the facility.
(e) The Department shall develop a procedure for sharing with a potential buyer of a facility information regarding outstanding assessments and penalties owed by that facility.
(f) In the case of a long-term care provider existing as a
corporation or legal entity other than an individual, the return
filed by it shall be signed by its president, vice-president,
secretary, or treasurer or by its properly authorized agent.
(g) If a long-term care provider fails to file its return
on or before the due date of the return,
there shall, unless waived by the Illinois Department for
reasonable cause, be added to the assessment imposed by Section
5B-2 a penalty assessment equal to 25%
of the assessment imposed for the year. After July 1, 2013, no penalty shall be assessed if the Illinois Department has not established a process for the electronic submission of information.
(h) Every long-term care provider subject to assessment
under this Article shall keep records and books that will
permit the determination of occupied bed days on a calendar year
basis. All such books and records shall be kept in the English
language and shall, at all times during business hours of the
day, be subject to inspection by the Illinois Department or its
duly authorized agents and employees.
(i) The Illinois Department shall establish a process for long-term care providers to electronically submit all information required by this Section no later than July 1, 2013.
