The Illinois Department of Revenue (IDOR) is accepting reports through the online filing system for tax incentives provided during calendar year 2016, only. If you wish to file a report for a year preceding 2016, or amend a report filed for an earlier year, you must contact IDOR using the email form at the bottom of this page.
The following summarizes reporting requirements for calendar year 2016 due in 2017, including who is required to file a report, and the types of reports required.
Building Materials Exemption Certificate (BMEC) Report - If you obtained a sales tax exemption certificate issued by IDOR for the period on or after July 1, 2013, and that certificate was valid during calendar year 2016, you are required to file a report with IDOR. You are required to report the dollar amount of exempt building materials that you purchased during calendar year 2016. Do not report the dollar amount of exempt purchases made in years preceding 2016, or purchases made in calendar year 2017. If you wish to file a report for a prior year, you must contact IDOR using the email form at the bottom of this page.
Business Report - Businesses that received incentives in calendar year 2016 because they were located within either an Enterprise Zone or River Edge Redevelopment Zone, or because they were a High Impact Business, must file a business report with IDOR. Each business that received incentives in calendar year 2016 must provide the information IDOR requests. IDOR will determine the value of incentives for the business based on the information reported. Do not provide information on incentives received in years preceding calendar year 2016, or incentives received in calendar year 2017. If you wish to file a report for a prior year, you must contact IDOR using the email form at the bottom of this page.
