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.

765 ILCS 725/1

    (765 ILCS 725/1) (from Ch. 6, par. 9)
    Sec. 1. No contract, agreement or lease in writing or by parol, by which any lands or tenements therein are demised or leased by any noncitizen or his agents for the purpose of farming, cultivation or the raising of crops thereon, shall contain any provision requiring the tenant or other person for him, to pay taxes on said lands or tenements, or any part thereof, and all such provisions, agreements and leases so made are declared void as to the taxes aforesaid. If any noncitizen landlord or his agents shall receive in advance or at any other time any sum of money or article of value from any tenant in lieu of such taxes, directly or indirectly, the same may be recovered back by such tenant before any court having jurisdiction of the amount thereof, and all provisions or agreements in writing or otherwise to pay such taxes shall be held in all courts of this state to be void.
