ARTICLE 90.
5 Section 90-1. Findings. The General Assembly makes all of
6the following findings:
7 (1) That the cumulative reduction to pre-K through 12
8 education funding since 2009 is approximately
9 $861,000,000.
10 (2) That general state aid to Illinois common schools
11 has been underfunded as a result of budget cuts, resulting
12 in pro-rated payments to school districts that are less
13 than the foundational level of $6,119 per pupil, which
14 represents the minimum each pupil needs to be educated.
15 (3) That a significant infusion of new revenue is
16 necessary in order to fully fund the foundation level and
17 to maintain and support education in Illinois.
18 (4) That the decline of the Illinois horse racing and
19 breeding program, a $2.5 billion industry, would be
20 reversed if this amendatory Act of the 100th General
21 Assembly would be enacted.
22 (5) That the Illinois horse racing industry is on the
23 verge of extinction due to fierce competition from fully
24 developed horse racing and gaming operations in other

SB0007- 49 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 states.
2 (6) That allowing the State's horse racing venues,
3 currently licensed gaming destinations, to maximize their
4 capacities with gaming machines, would generate up to $120
5 million to $200 million for the State in the form of extra
6 licensing fees, plus an additional $100 million to $300
7 million in recurring annual tax revenue for the State to
8 help ensure that school, road, and other building projects
9 promised under the capital plan occur on schedule.
10 (7) That Illinois agriculture and other businesses
11 that support and supply the horse racing industry, already
12 a sector that employs over 37,000 Illinoisans, also stand
13 to substantially benefit and would be much more likely to
14 create additional jobs should Illinois horse racing once
15 again become competitive with other states.
16 (8) That by keeping these projects on track, the State
17 can be sure that significant job and economic growth will
18 in fact result from the previously enacted legislation.
19 (9) That gaming machines at Illinois horse racing
20 tracks would create an estimated 1,200 to 1,500 permanent
21 jobs, and an estimated capital investment of up to $200
22 million to $400 million at these race tracks would prompt
23 additional trade organization jobs necessary to construct
24 new facilities or remodel race tracks to operate electronic
25 gaming.

SB0007- 50 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b

26additional amount equal to 1.5% of such taxpayer's net income

SB0007- 104 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1for the taxable year.
2 (d-1) Rate reduction for certain foreign insurers. In the
3case of a foreign insurer, as defined by Section 35A-5 of the

13imposed by subsections (b) and (d) shall be reduced (but not
14increased) to the rate at which the total amount of tax imposed
15under this Act, net of all credits allowed under this Act,
16shall equal (i) the total amount of tax that would be imposed
17on the foreign insurer's net income allocable to Illinois for
18the taxable year by such foreign insurer's state or country of
19domicile if that net income were subject to all income taxes
20and taxes measured by net income imposed by such foreign

SB0007- 105 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 shall the sum of the rates of tax imposed by subsections
2 (b) and (d) be reduced below the rate at which the sum of:
3 (A) the total amount of tax imposed on such foreign
4 insurer under this Act for a taxable year, net of all
5 credits allowed under this Act, plus
6 (B) the privilege tax imposed by Section 409 of the

1 (e) Investment credit. A taxpayer shall be allowed a credit
2against the Personal Property Tax Replacement Income Tax for
3investment in qualified property.
4 (1) A taxpayer shall be allowed a credit equal to .5%
5 of the basis of qualified property placed in service during
6 the taxable year, provided such property is placed in
7 service on or after July 1, 1984. There shall be allowed an
8 additional credit equal to .5% of the basis of qualified
9 property placed in service during the taxable year,
10 provided such property is placed in service on or after
11 July 1, 1986, and the taxpayer's base employment within
12 Illinois has increased by 1% or more over the preceding
13 year as determined by the taxpayer's employment records
14 filed with the Illinois Department of Employment Security.
15 Taxpayers who are new to Illinois shall be deemed to have
16 met the 1% growth in base employment for the first year in
17 which they file employment records with the Illinois
18 Department of Employment Security. The provisions added to
19 this Section by Public Act 85-1200 (and restored by Public
20 Act 87-895) shall be construed as declaratory of existing
21 law and not as a new enactment. If, in any year, the
22 increase in base employment within Illinois over the
23 preceding year is less than 1%, the additional credit shall
24 be limited to that percentage times a fraction, the
25 numerator of which is .5% and the denominator of which is
26 1%, but shall not exceed .5%. The investment credit shall

SB0007- 107 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 not be allowed to the extent that it would reduce a
2 taxpayer's liability in any tax year below zero, nor may
3 any credit for qualified property be allowed for any year
4 other than the year in which the property was placed in
5 service in Illinois. For tax years ending on or after
6 December 31, 1987, and on or before December 31, 1988, the
7 credit shall be allowed for the tax year in which the
8 property is placed in service, or, if the amount of the
9 credit exceeds the tax liability for that year, whether it
10 exceeds the original liability or the liability as later
11 amended, such excess may be carried forward and applied to
12 the tax liability of the 5 taxable years following the
13 excess credit years if the taxpayer (i) makes investments
14 which cause the creation of a minimum of 2,000 full-time
15 equivalent jobs in Illinois, (ii) is located in an
16 enterprise zone established pursuant to the Illinois
17 Enterprise Zone Act and (iii) is certified by the
18 Department of Commerce and Community Affairs (now
19 Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity) as
20 complying with the requirements specified in clause (i) and
21 (ii) by July 1, 1986. The Department of Commerce and
22 Community Affairs (now Department of Commerce and Economic
23 Opportunity) shall notify the Department of Revenue of all
24 such certifications immediately. For tax years ending
25 after December 31, 1988, the credit shall be allowed for
26 the tax year in which the property is placed in service,

SB0007- 108 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 or, if the amount of the credit exceeds the tax liability
2 for that year, whether it exceeds the original liability or
3 the liability as later amended, such excess may be carried
4 forward and applied to the tax liability of the 5 taxable
5 years following the excess credit years. The credit shall
6 be applied to the earliest year for which there is a
7 liability. If there is credit from more than one tax year
8 that is available to offset a liability, earlier credit
9 shall be applied first.
10 (2) The term "qualified property" means property
11 which:
12 (A) is tangible, whether new or used, including
13 buildings and structural components of buildings and
14 signs that are real property, but not including land or
15 improvements to real property that are not a structural
16 component of a building such as landscaping, sewer
17 lines, local access roads, fencing, parking lots, and
18 other appurtenances;
19 (B) is depreciable pursuant to Section 167 of the
20 Internal Revenue Code, except that "3-year property"
21 as defined in Section 168(c)(2)(A) of that Code is not
22 eligible for the credit provided by this subsection
23 (e);
24 (C) is acquired by purchase as defined in Section
25 179(d) of the Internal Revenue Code;
26 (D) is used in Illinois by a taxpayer who is

SB0007- 109 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 primarily engaged in manufacturing, or in mining coal
2 or fluorite, or in retailing, or was placed in service
3 on or after July 1, 2006 in a River Edge Redevelopment
4 Zone established pursuant to the River Edge
5 Redevelopment Zone Act; and
6 (E) has not previously been used in Illinois in
7 such a manner and by such a person as would qualify for
8 the credit provided by this subsection (e) or
9 subsection (f).
10 (3) For purposes of this subsection (e),
11 "manufacturing" means the material staging and production
12 of tangible personal property by procedures commonly
13 regarded as manufacturing, processing, fabrication, or
14 assembling which changes some existing material into new
15 shapes, new qualities, or new combinations. For purposes of
16 this subsection (e) the term "mining" shall have the same
17 meaning as the term "mining" in Section 613(c) of the
18 Internal Revenue Code. For purposes of this subsection (e),
19 the term "retailing" means the sale of tangible personal
20 property for use or consumption and not for resale, or
21 services rendered in conjunction with the sale of tangible
22 personal property for use or consumption and not for
23 resale. For purposes of this subsection (e), "tangible
24 personal property" has the same meaning as when that term
25 is used in the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act, and, for
26 taxable years ending after December 31, 2008, does not

SB0007- 110 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 include the generation, transmission, or distribution of
2 electricity.
3 (4) The basis of qualified property shall be the basis
4 used to compute the depreciation deduction for federal
5 income tax purposes.
6 (5) If the basis of the property for federal income tax
7 depreciation purposes is increased after it has been placed
8 in service in Illinois by the taxpayer, the amount of such
9 increase shall be deemed property placed in service on the
10 date of such increase in basis.
11 (6) The term "placed in service" shall have the same
12 meaning as under Section 46 of the Internal Revenue Code.
13 (7) If during any taxable year, any property ceases to
14 be qualified property in the hands of the taxpayer within
15 48 months after being placed in service, or the situs of
16 any qualified property is moved outside Illinois within 48
17 months after being placed in service, the Personal Property
18 Tax Replacement Income Tax for such taxable year shall be
19 increased. Such increase shall be determined by (i)
20 recomputing the investment credit which would have been
21 allowed for the year in which credit for such property was
22 originally allowed by eliminating such property from such
23 computation and, (ii) subtracting such recomputed credit
24 from the amount of credit previously allowed. For the
25 purposes of this paragraph (7), a reduction of the basis of
26 qualified property resulting from a redetermination of the

SB0007- 111 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 purchase price shall be deemed a disposition of qualified
2 property to the extent of such reduction.
3 (8) Unless the investment credit is extended by law,
4 the basis of qualified property shall not include costs
5 incurred after December 31, 2018, except for costs incurred
6 pursuant to a binding contract entered into on or before
7 December 31, 2018.
8 (9) Each taxable year ending before December 31, 2000,
9 a partnership may elect to pass through to its partners the
10 credits to which the partnership is entitled under this
11 subsection (e) for the taxable year. A partner may use the
12 credit allocated to him or her under this paragraph only
13 against the tax imposed in subsections (c) and (d) of this
14 Section. If the partnership makes that election, those
15 credits shall be allocated among the partners in the
16 partnership in accordance with the rules set forth in
17 Section 704(b) of the Internal Revenue Code, and the rules
18 promulgated under that Section, and the allocated amount of
19 the credits shall be allowed to the partners for that
20 taxable year. The partnership shall make this election on
21 its Personal Property Tax Replacement Income Tax return for
22 that taxable year. The election to pass through the credits
23 shall be irrevocable.
24 For taxable years ending on or after December 31, 2000,
25 a partner that qualifies its partnership for a subtraction
26 under subparagraph (I) of paragraph (2) of subsection (d)

SB0007- 112 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 of Section 203 or a shareholder that qualifies a Subchapter
2 S corporation for a subtraction under subparagraph (S) of
3 paragraph (2) of subsection (b) of Section 203 shall be
4 allowed a credit under this subsection (e) equal to its
5 share of the credit earned under this subsection (e) during
6 the taxable year by the partnership or Subchapter S
7 corporation, determined in accordance with the
8 determination of income and distributive share of income
9 under Sections 702 and 704 and Subchapter S of the Internal
10 Revenue Code. This paragraph is exempt from the provisions
11 of Section 250.
12 (f) Investment credit; Enterprise Zone; River Edge
13Redevelopment Zone.
14 (1) A taxpayer shall be allowed a credit against the
15 tax imposed by subsections (a) and (b) of this Section for
16 investment in qualified property which is placed in service
17 in an Enterprise Zone created pursuant to the Illinois
18 Enterprise Zone Act or, for property placed in service on
19 or after July 1, 2006, a River Edge Redevelopment Zone
20 established pursuant to the River Edge Redevelopment Zone
21 Act. For partners, shareholders of Subchapter S
22 corporations, and owners of limited liability companies,
23 if the liability company is treated as a partnership for
24 purposes of federal and State income taxation, there shall
25 be allowed a credit under this subsection (f) to be
26 determined in accordance with the determination of income

SB0007- 113 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 and distributive share of income under Sections 702 and 704
2 and Subchapter S of the Internal Revenue Code. The credit
3 shall be .5% of the basis for such property. The credit
4 shall be available only in the taxable year in which the
5 property is placed in service in the Enterprise Zone or
6 River Edge Redevelopment Zone and shall not be allowed to
7 the extent that it would reduce a taxpayer's liability for
8 the tax imposed by subsections (a) and (b) of this Section
9 to below zero. For tax years ending on or after December
10 31, 1985, the credit shall be allowed for the tax year in
11 which the property is placed in service, or, if the amount
12 of the credit exceeds the tax liability for that year,
13 whether it exceeds the original liability or the liability
14 as later amended, such excess may be carried forward and
15 applied to the tax liability of the 5 taxable years
16 following the excess credit year. The credit shall be
17 applied to the earliest year for which there is a
18 liability. If there is credit from more than one tax year
19 that is available to offset a liability, the credit
20 accruing first in time shall be applied first.
21 (2) The term qualified property means property which:
22 (A) is tangible, whether new or used, including
23 buildings and structural components of buildings;
24 (B) is depreciable pursuant to Section 167 of the
25 Internal Revenue Code, except that "3-year property"
26 as defined in Section 168(c)(2)(A) of that Code is not

SB0007- 114 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 eligible for the credit provided by this subsection
2 (f);
3 (C) is acquired by purchase as defined in Section
4 179(d) of the Internal Revenue Code;
5 (D) is used in the Enterprise Zone or River Edge
6 Redevelopment Zone by the taxpayer; and
7 (E) has not been previously used in Illinois in
8 such a manner and by such a person as would qualify for
9 the credit provided by this subsection (f) or
10 subsection (e).
11 (3) The basis of qualified property shall be the basis
12 used to compute the depreciation deduction for federal
13 income tax purposes.
14 (4) If the basis of the property for federal income tax
15 depreciation purposes is increased after it has been placed
16 in service in the Enterprise Zone or River Edge
17 Redevelopment Zone by the taxpayer, the amount of such
18 increase shall be deemed property placed in service on the
19 date of such increase in basis.
20 (5) The term "placed in service" shall have the same
21 meaning as under Section 46 of the Internal Revenue Code.
22 (6) If during any taxable year, any property ceases to
23 be qualified property in the hands of the taxpayer within
24 48 months after being placed in service, or the situs of
25 any qualified property is moved outside the Enterprise Zone
26 or River Edge Redevelopment Zone within 48 months after

SB0007- 115 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 being placed in service, the tax imposed under subsections
2 (a) and (b) of this Section for such taxable year shall be
3 increased. Such increase shall be determined by (i)
4 recomputing the investment credit which would have been
5 allowed for the year in which credit for such property was
6 originally allowed by eliminating such property from such
7 computation, and (ii) subtracting such recomputed credit
8 from the amount of credit previously allowed. For the
9 purposes of this paragraph (6), a reduction of the basis of
10 qualified property resulting from a redetermination of the
11 purchase price shall be deemed a disposition of qualified
12 property to the extent of such reduction.
13 (7) There shall be allowed an additional credit equal
14 to 0.5% of the basis of qualified property placed in
15 service during the taxable year in a River Edge
16 Redevelopment Zone, provided such property is placed in

18 employment within Illinois has increased by 1% or more over
19 the preceding year as determined by the taxpayer's
20 employment records filed with the Illinois Department of
21 Employment Security. Taxpayers who are new to Illinois
22 shall be deemed to have met the 1% growth in base
23 employment for the first year in which they file employment
24 records with the Illinois Department of Employment
25 Security. If, in any year, the increase in base employment
26 within Illinois over the preceding year is less than 1%,

SB0007- 116 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 the additional credit shall be limited to that percentage
2 times a fraction, the numerator of which is 0.5% and the
3 denominator of which is 1%, but shall not exceed 0.5%.

10 property which is placed in service by a Department of
11 Commerce and Economic Opportunity designated High Impact
12 Business. The credit shall be .5% of the basis for such
13 property. The credit shall not be available (i) until the
14 minimum investments in qualified property set forth in
15 subdivision (a)(3)(A) of Section 5.5 of the Illinois
16 Enterprise Zone Act have been satisfied or (ii) until the
17 time authorized in subsection (b-5) of the Illinois

19 Businesses under subdivisions (a)(3)(B), (a)(3)(C), and
20 (a)(3)(D) of Section 5.5 of the Illinois Enterprise Zone
21 Act, and shall not be allowed to the extent that it would
22 reduce a taxpayer's liability for the tax imposed by
23 subsections (a) and (b) of this Section to below zero. The
24 credit applicable to such investments shall be taken in the
25 taxable year in which such investments have been completed.
26 The credit for additional investments beyond the minimum

SB0007- 117 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 investment by a designated high impact business authorized
2 under subdivision (a)(3)(A) of Section 5.5 of the Illinois
3 Enterprise Zone Act shall be available only in the taxable
4 year in which the property is placed in service and shall
5 not be allowed to the extent that it would reduce a
6 taxpayer's liability for the tax imposed by subsections (a)
7 and (b) of this Section to below zero. For tax years ending
8 on or after December 31, 1987, the credit shall be allowed
9 for the tax year in which the property is placed in
10 service, or, if the amount of the credit exceeds the tax
11 liability for that year, whether it exceeds the original
12 liability or the liability as later amended, such excess
13 may be carried forward and applied to the tax liability of
14 the 5 taxable years following the excess credit year. The
15 credit shall be applied to the earliest year for which
16 there is a liability. If there is credit from more than one
17 tax year that is available to offset a liability, the
18 credit accruing first in time shall be applied first.
19 Changes made in this subdivision (h)(1) by Public Act
20 88-670 restore changes made by Public Act 85-1182 and
21 reflect existing law.
22 (2) The term qualified property means property which:
23 (A) is tangible, whether new or used, including
24 buildings and structural components of buildings;
25 (B) is depreciable pursuant to Section 167 of the
26 Internal Revenue Code, except that "3-year property"

SB0007- 118 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 as defined in Section 168(c)(2)(A) of that Code is not
2 eligible for the credit provided by this subsection
3 (h);
4 (C) is acquired by purchase as defined in Section
5 179(d) of the Internal Revenue Code; and
6 (D) is not eligible for the Enterprise Zone
7 Investment Credit provided by subsection (f) of this
8 Section.
9 (3) The basis of qualified property shall be the basis
10 used to compute the depreciation deduction for federal
11 income tax purposes.
12 (4) If the basis of the property for federal income tax
13 depreciation purposes is increased after it has been placed
14 in service in a federally designated Foreign Trade Zone or
15 Sub-Zone located in Illinois by the taxpayer, the amount of
16 such increase shall be deemed property placed in service on
17 the date of such increase in basis.
18 (5) The term "placed in service" shall have the same
19 meaning as under Section 46 of the Internal Revenue Code.
20 (6) If during any taxable year ending on or before
21 December 31, 1996, any property ceases to be qualified
22 property in the hands of the taxpayer within 48 months
23 after being placed in service, or the situs of any
24 qualified property is moved outside Illinois within 48
25 months after being placed in service, the tax imposed under
26 subsections (a) and (b) of this Section for such taxable

SB0007- 119 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 year shall be increased. Such increase shall be determined
2 by (i) recomputing the investment credit which would have
3 been allowed for the year in which credit for such property
4 was originally allowed by eliminating such property from
5 such computation, and (ii) subtracting such recomputed
6 credit from the amount of credit previously allowed. For
7 the purposes of this paragraph (6), a reduction of the
8 basis of qualified property resulting from a
9 redetermination of the purchase price shall be deemed a
10 disposition of qualified property to the extent of such
11 reduction.
12 (7) Beginning with tax years ending after December 31,
13 1996, if a taxpayer qualifies for the credit under this
14 subsection (h) and thereby is granted a tax abatement and
15 the taxpayer relocates its entire facility in violation of
16 the explicit terms and length of the contract under Section
17 18-183 of the Property Tax Code, the tax imposed under
18 subsections (a) and (b) of this Section shall be increased
19 for the taxable year in which the taxpayer relocated its
20 facility by an amount equal to the amount of credit
21 received by the taxpayer under this subsection (h).
22 (i) Credit for Personal Property Tax Replacement Income
23Tax. For tax years ending prior to December 31, 2003, a credit
24shall be allowed against the tax imposed by subsections (a) and
25(b) of this Section for the tax imposed by subsections (c) and
26(d) of this Section. This credit shall be computed by

SB0007- 120 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1multiplying the tax imposed by subsections (c) and (d) of this
2Section by a fraction, the numerator of which is base income
3allocable to Illinois and the denominator of which is Illinois
4base income, and further multiplying the product by the tax
5rate imposed by subsections (a) and (b) of this Section.
6 Any credit earned on or after December 31, 1986 under this
7subsection which is unused in the year the credit is computed
8because it exceeds the tax liability imposed by subsections (a)
9and (b) for that year (whether it exceeds the original
10liability or the liability as later amended) may be carried
11forward and applied to the tax liability imposed by subsections
12(a) and (b) of the 5 taxable years following the excess credit
13year, provided that no credit may be carried forward to any
14year ending on or after December 31, 2003. This credit shall be
15applied first to the earliest year for which there is a
16liability. If there is a credit under this subsection from more
17than one tax year that is available to offset a liability the
18earliest credit arising under this subsection shall be applied
19first.
20 If, during any taxable year ending on or after December 31,
211986, the tax imposed by subsections (c) and (d) of this
22Section for which a taxpayer has claimed a credit under this
23subsection (i) is reduced, the amount of credit for such tax
24shall also be reduced. Such reduction shall be determined by
25recomputing the credit to take into account the reduced tax
26imposed by subsections (c) and (d). If any portion of the

SB0007- 121 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1reduced amount of credit has been carried to a different
2taxable year, an amended return shall be filed for such taxable
3year to reduce the amount of credit claimed.
4 (j) Training expense credit. Beginning with tax years
5ending on or after December 31, 1986 and prior to December 31,

10of Illinois by a taxpayer, for educational or vocational
11training in semi-technical or technical fields or semi-skilled
12or skilled fields, which were deducted from gross income in the
13computation of taxable income. The credit against the tax
14imposed by subsections (a) and (b) shall be 1.6% of such
15training expenses. For partners, shareholders of subchapter S
16corporations, and owners of limited liability companies, if the
17liability company is treated as a partnership for purposes of
18federal and State income taxation, there shall be allowed a
19credit under this subsection (j) to be determined in accordance
20with the determination of income and distributive share of
21income under Sections 702 and 704 and subchapter S of the
22Internal Revenue Code.
23 Any credit allowed under this subsection which is unused in
24the year the credit is earned may be carried forward to each of
25the 5 taxable years following the year for which the credit is
26first computed until it is used. This credit shall be applied

SB0007- 122 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1first to the earliest year for which there is a liability. If
2there is a credit under this subsection from more than one tax
3year that is available to offset a liability the earliest
4credit arising under this subsection shall be applied first. No
5carryforward credit may be claimed in any tax year ending on or
6after December 31, 2003.
7 (k) Research and development credit. For tax years ending

1allowable under Section 41 of the Internal Revenue Code and
2which are conducted in this State, "qualifying expenditures for
3increasing research activities in this State" means the excess
4of qualifying expenditures for the taxable year in which
5incurred over qualifying expenditures for the base period,
6"qualifying expenditures for the base period" means the average
7of the qualifying expenditures for each year in the base
8period, and "base period" means the 3 taxable years immediately
9preceding the taxable year for which the determination is being

12year may be carried forward. A taxpayer may elect to have the
13unused credit shown on its final completed return carried over
14as a credit against the tax liability for the following 5
15taxable years or until it has been fully used, whichever occurs
16first; provided that no credit earned in a tax year ending
17prior to December 31, 2003 may be carried forward to any year
18ending on or after December 31, 2003.
19 If an unused credit is carried forward to a given year from
202 or more earlier years, that credit arising in the earliest
21year will be applied first against the tax liability for the
22given year. If a tax liability for the given year still
23remains, the credit from the next earliest year will then be
24applied, and so on, until all credits have been used or no tax
25liability for the given year remains. Any remaining unused
26credit or credits then will be carried forward to the next

SB0007- 124 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1following year in which a tax liability is incurred, except
2that no credit can be carried forward to a year which is more
3than 5 years after the year in which the expense for which the

20 Agency and recorded under Section 58.10 of the
21 Environmental Protection Act. The credit must be claimed
22 for the taxable year in which Agency approval of the
23 eligible remediation costs is granted. The credit is not
24 available to any taxpayer if the taxpayer or any related
25 party caused or contributed to, in any material respect, a
26 release of regulated substances on, in, or under the site

SB0007- 125 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b

17 and (b) shall be equal to 25% of the unreimbursed eligible
18 remediation costs in excess of $100,000 per site, except
19 that the $100,000 threshold shall not apply to any site
20 contained in an enterprise zone as determined by the
21 Department of Commerce and Community Affairs (now

13 subsection from more than one tax year that is available to
14 offset a liability, the earliest credit arising under this
15 subsection shall be applied first. A credit allowed under
16 this subsection may be sold to a buyer as part of a sale of
17 all or part of the remediation site for which the credit
18 was granted. The purchaser of a remediation site and the
19 tax credit shall succeed to the unused credit and remaining
20 carry-forward period of the seller. To perfect the
21 transfer, the assignor shall record the transfer in the
22 chain of title for the site and provide written notice to
23 the Director of the Illinois Department of Revenue of the
24 assignor's intent to sell the remediation site and the
25 amount of the tax credit to be transferred as a portion of
26 the sale. In no event may a credit be transferred to any

SB0007- 127 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b

5 (i) The individual's service is performed entirely
6 within this State;
7 (ii) The individual's service is performed both

18 (B-7) For taxable years ending on or after December 31,
19 2008, receipts from the sale of broadcasting services are
20 in this State if the broadcasting services are received in
21 this State. For purposes of this paragraph (B-7), the
22 following terms have the following meanings:
23 "Advertising revenue" means consideration received
24 by the taxpayer in exchange for broadcasting services
25 or allowing the broadcasting of commercials or
26 announcements in connection with the broadcasting of

SB0007- 158 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 film or radio programming, from sponsorships of the
2 programming, or from product placements in the
3 programming.
4 "Audience factor" means the ratio that the
5 audience or subscribers located in this State of a
6 station, a network, or a cable system bears to the
7 total audience or total subscribers for that station,
8 network, or cable system. The audience factor for film
9 or radio programming shall be determined by reference
10 to the books and records of the taxpayer or by
11 reference to published rating statistics provided the
12 method used by the taxpayer is consistently used from
13 year to year for this purpose and fairly represents the
14 taxpayer's activity in this State.
15 "Broadcast" or "broadcasting" or "broadcasting
16 services" means the transmission or provision of film
17 or radio programming, whether through the public
18 airwaves, by cable, by direct or indirect satellite
19 transmission, or by any other means of communication,
20 either through a station, a network, or a cable system.
21 "Film" or "film programming" means the broadcast
22 on television of any and all performances, events, or
23 productions, including but not limited to news,
24 sporting events, plays, stories, or other literary,
25 commercial, educational, or artistic works, either
26 live or through the use of video tape, disc, or any

SB0007- 159 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 other type of format or medium. Each episode of a
2 series of films produced for television shall
3 constitute separate "film" notwithstanding that the
4 series relates to the same principal subject and is
5 produced during one or more tax periods.
6 "Radio" or "radio programming" means the broadcast
7 on radio of any and all performances, events, or
8 productions, including but not limited to news,
9 sporting events, plays, stories, or other literary,
10 commercial, educational, or artistic works, either
11 live or through the use of an audio tape, disc, or any
12 other format or medium. Each episode in a series of
13 radio programming produced for radio broadcast shall
14 constitute a separate "radio programming"
15 notwithstanding that the series relates to the same
16 principal subject and is produced during one or more
17 tax periods.
18 (i) In the case of advertising revenue from
19 broadcasting, the customer is the advertiser and
20 the service is received in this State if the
21 commercial domicile of the advertiser is in this
22 State.
23 (ii) In the case where film or radio
24 programming is broadcast by a station, a network,
25 or a cable system for a fee or other remuneration
26 received from the recipient of the broadcast, the

SB0007- 160 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 portion of the service that is received in this
2 State is measured by the portion of the recipients
3 of the broadcast located in this State.
4 Accordingly, the fee or other remuneration for
5 such service that is included in the Illinois
6 numerator of the sales factor is the total of those
7 fees or other remuneration received from
8 recipients in Illinois. For purposes of this
9 paragraph, a taxpayer may determine the location
10 of the recipients of its broadcast using the
11 address of the recipient shown in its contracts
12 with the recipient or using the billing address of
13 the recipient in the taxpayer's records.
14 (iii) In the case where film or radio
15 programming is broadcast by a station, a network,
16 or a cable system for a fee or other remuneration
17 from the person providing the programming, the
18 portion of the broadcast service that is received
19 by such station, network, or cable system in this
20 State is measured by the portion of recipients of
21 the broadcast located in this State. Accordingly,
22 the amount of revenue related to such an
23 arrangement that is included in the Illinois
24 numerator of the sales factor is the total fee or
25 other total remuneration from the person providing
26 the programming related to that broadcast

SB0007- 161 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 multiplied by the Illinois audience factor for
2 that broadcast.
3 (iv) In the case where film or radio
4 programming is provided by a taxpayer that is a
5 network or station to a customer for broadcast in
6 exchange for a fee or other remuneration from that
7 customer the broadcasting service is received at
8 the location of the office of the customer from
9 which the services were ordered in the regular
10 course of the customer's trade or business.
11 Accordingly, in such a case the revenue derived by
12 the taxpayer that is included in the taxpayer's
13 Illinois numerator of the sales factor is the
14 revenue from such customers who receive the
15 broadcasting service in Illinois.
16 (v) In the case where film or radio programming
17 is provided by a taxpayer that is not a network or
18 station to another person for broadcasting in
19 exchange for a fee or other remuneration from that
20 person, the broadcasting service is received at
21 the location of the office of the customer from
22 which the services were ordered in the regular
23 course of the customer's trade or business.
24 Accordingly, in such a case the revenue derived by
25 the taxpayer that is included in the taxpayer's
26 Illinois numerator of the sales factor is the

SB0007- 162 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 revenue from such customers who receive the
2 broadcasting service in Illinois.
3 (B-8) Gross receipts from winnings under the Illinois

12 gambling games conducted on a riverboat or in a casino or
13 electronic gaming facility licensed under the Illinois
14 Gambling Act are in this State.
15 (C) For taxable years ending before December 31, 2008,
16 sales, other than sales governed by paragraphs (B), (B-1),
17 (B-2), and (B-8) are in this State if:
18 (i) The income-producing activity is performed in
19 this State; or
20 (ii) The income-producing activity is performed
21 both within and without this State and a greater
22 proportion of the income-producing activity is
23 performed within this State than without this State,
24 based on performance costs.
25 (C-5) For taxable years ending on or after December 31,
26 2008, sales, other than sales governed by paragraphs (B),

SB0007- 163 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 (B-1), (B-2), (B-5), and (B-7), are in this State if any of
2 the following criteria are met:
3 (i) Sales from the sale or lease of real property
4 are in this State if the property is located in this
5 State.
6 (ii) Sales from the lease or rental of tangible
7 personal property are in this State if the property is
8 located in this State during the rental period. Sales
9 from the lease or rental of tangible personal property
10 that is characteristically moving property, including,
11 but not limited to, motor vehicles, rolling stock,
12 aircraft, vessels, or mobile equipment are in this
13 State to the extent that the property is used in this
14 State.
15 (iii) In the case of interest, net gains (but not
16 less than zero) and other items of income from
17 intangible personal property, the sale is in this State
18 if:
19 (a) in the case of a taxpayer who is a dealer
20 in the item of intangible personal property within
21 the meaning of Section 475 of the Internal Revenue
22 Code, the income or gain is received from a
23 customer in this State. For purposes of this
24 subparagraph, a customer is in this State if the
25 customer is an individual, trust or estate who is a
26 resident of this State and, for all other

SB0007- 164 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 customers, if the customer's commercial domicile
2 is in this State. Unless the dealer has actual
3 knowledge of the residence or commercial domicile
4 of a customer during a taxable year, the customer
5 shall be deemed to be a customer in this State if
6 the billing address of the customer, as shown in
7 the records of the dealer, is in this State; or
8 (b) in all other cases, if the
9 income-producing activity of the taxpayer is
10 performed in this State or, if the
11 income-producing activity of the taxpayer is
12 performed both within and without this State, if a
13 greater proportion of the income-producing
14 activity of the taxpayer is performed within this
15 State than in any other state, based on performance
16 costs.
17 (iv) Sales of services are in this State if the
18 services are received in this State. For the purposes
19 of this section, gross receipts from the performance of
20 services provided to a corporation, partnership, or
21 trust may only be attributed to a state where that
22 corporation, partnership, or trust has a fixed place of
23 business. If the state where the services are received
24 is not readily determinable or is a state where the
25 corporation, partnership, or trust receiving the
26 service does not have a fixed place of business, the

SB0007- 165 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 services shall be deemed to be received at the location
2 of the office of the customer from which the services
3 were ordered in the regular course of the customer's
4 trade or business. If the ordering office cannot be
5 determined, the services shall be deemed to be received
6 at the office of the customer to which the services are
7 billed. If the taxpayer is not taxable in the state in
8 which the services are received, the sale must be
9 excluded from both the numerator and the denominator of
10 the sales factor. The Department shall adopt rules
11 prescribing where specific types of service are
12 received, including, but not limited to, publishing,
13 and utility service.
14 (D) For taxable years ending on or after December 31,
15 1995, the following items of income shall not be included
16 in the numerator or denominator of the sales factor:
17 dividends; amounts included under Section 78 of the
18 Internal Revenue Code; and Subpart F income as defined in
19 Section 952 of the Internal Revenue Code. No inference
20 shall be drawn from the enactment of this paragraph (D) in
21 construing this Section for taxable years ending before
22 December 31, 1995.
23 (E) Paragraphs (B-1) and (B-2) shall apply to tax years
24 ending on or after December 31, 1999, provided that a
25 taxpayer may elect to apply the provisions of these
26 paragraphs to prior tax years. Such election shall be made

SB0007- 166 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 in the form and manner prescribed by the Department, shall
2 be irrevocable, and shall apply to all tax years; provided
3 that, if a taxpayer's Illinois income tax liability for any
4 tax year, as assessed under Section 903 prior to January 1,
5 1999, was computed in a manner contrary to the provisions
6 of paragraphs (B-1) or (B-2), no refund shall be payable to
7 the taxpayer for that tax year to the extent such refund is
8 the result of applying the provisions of paragraph (B-1) or
9 (B-2) retroactively. In the case of a unitary business
10 group, such election shall apply to all members of such
11 group for every tax year such group is in existence, but
12 shall not apply to any taxpayer for any period during which
13 that taxpayer is not a member of such group.
14 (b) Insurance companies.
15 (1) In general. Except as otherwise provided by
16 paragraph (2), business income of an insurance company for
17 a taxable year shall be apportioned to this State by
18 multiplying such income by a fraction, the numerator of
19 which is the direct premiums written for insurance upon
20 property or risk in this State, and the denominator of
21 which is the direct premiums written for insurance upon
22 property or risk everywhere. For purposes of this
23 subsection, the term "direct premiums written" means the
24 total amount of direct premiums written, assessments and
25 annuity considerations as reported for the taxable year on
26 the annual statement filed by the company with the Illinois

SB0007- 167 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 Director of Insurance in the form approved by the National
2 Convention of Insurance Commissioners or such other form as
3 may be prescribed in lieu thereof.
4 (2) Reinsurance. If the principal source of premiums
5 written by an insurance company consists of premiums for
6 reinsurance accepted by it, the business income of such
7 company shall be apportioned to this State by multiplying
8 such income by a fraction, the numerator of which is the
9 sum of (i) direct premiums written for insurance upon
10 property or risk in this State, plus (ii) premiums written
11 for reinsurance accepted in respect of property or risk in
12 this State, and the denominator of which is the sum of
13 (iii) direct premiums written for insurance upon property
14 or risk everywhere, plus (iv) premiums written for
15 reinsurance accepted in respect of property or risk
16 everywhere. For purposes of this paragraph, premiums
17 written for reinsurance accepted in respect of property or
18 risk in this State, whether or not otherwise determinable,
19 may, at the election of the company, be determined on the
20 basis of the proportion which premiums written for
21 reinsurance accepted from companies commercially domiciled
22 in Illinois bears to premiums written for reinsurance
23 accepted from all sources, or, alternatively, in the
24 proportion which the sum of the direct premiums written for
25 insurance upon property or risk in this State by each
26 ceding company from which reinsurance is accepted bears to

SB0007- 168 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 the sum of the total direct premiums written by each such
2 ceding company for the taxable year. The election made by a
3 company under this paragraph for its first taxable year
4 ending on or after December 31, 2011, shall be binding for
5 that company for that taxable year and for all subsequent
6 taxable years, and may be altered only with the written
7 permission of the Department, which shall not be
8 unreasonably withheld.
9 (c) Financial organizations.
10 (1) In general. For taxable years ending before
11 December 31, 2008, business income of a financial
12 organization shall be apportioned to this State by
13 multiplying such income by a fraction, the numerator of
14 which is its business income from sources within this
15 State, and the denominator of which is its business income
16 from all sources. For the purposes of this subsection, the
17 business income of a financial organization from sources
18 within this State is the sum of the amounts referred to in
19 subparagraphs (A) through (E) following, but excluding the
20 adjusted income of an international banking facility as
21 determined in paragraph (2):
22 (A) Fees, commissions or other compensation for
23 financial services rendered within this State;
24 (B) Gross profits from trading in stocks, bonds or
25 other securities managed within this State;
26 (C) Dividends, and interest from Illinois

SB0007- 169 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 customers, which are received within this State;
2 (D) Interest charged to customers at places of
3 business maintained within this State for carrying
4 debit balances of margin accounts, without deduction
5 of any costs incurred in carrying such accounts; and
6 (E) Any other gross income resulting from the
7 operation as a financial organization within this
8 State. In computing the amounts referred to in
9 paragraphs (A) through (E) of this subsection, any
10 amount received by a member of an affiliated group
11 (determined under Section 1504(a) of the Internal
12 Revenue Code but without reference to whether any such
13 corporation is an "includible corporation" under
14 Section 1504(b) of the Internal Revenue Code) from
15 another member of such group shall be included only to
16 the extent such amount exceeds expenses of the
17 recipient directly related thereto.
18 (2) International Banking Facility. For taxable years
19 ending before December 31, 2008:
20 (A) Adjusted Income. The adjusted income of an
21 international banking facility is its income reduced
22 by the amount of the floor amount.
23 (B) Floor Amount. The floor amount shall be the
24 amount, if any, determined by multiplying the income of
25 the international banking facility by a fraction, not
26 greater than one, which is determined as follows:

SB0007- 170 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 (i) The numerator shall be:
2 The average aggregate, determined on a
3 quarterly basis, of the financial organization's
4 loans to banks in foreign countries, to foreign
5 domiciled borrowers (except where secured
6 primarily by real estate) and to foreign
7 governments and other foreign official
8 institutions, as reported for its branches,
9 agencies and offices within the state on its
10 "Consolidated Report of Condition", Schedule A,
11 Lines 2.c., 5.b., and 7.a., which was filed with
12 the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and
13 other regulatory authorities, for the year 1980,
14 minus
15 The average aggregate, determined on a
16 quarterly basis, of such loans (other than loans of
17 an international banking facility), as reported by
18 the financial institution for its branches,
19 agencies and offices within the state, on the
20 corresponding Schedule and lines of the
21 Consolidated Report of Condition for the current
22 taxable year, provided, however, that in no case
23 shall the amount determined in this clause (the
24 subtrahend) exceed the amount determined in the
25 preceding clause (the minuend); and
26 (ii) the denominator shall be the average

SB0007- 171 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 aggregate, determined on a quarterly basis, of the
2 international banking facility's loans to banks in
3 foreign countries, to foreign domiciled borrowers
4 (except where secured primarily by real estate)
5 and to foreign governments and other foreign
6 official institutions, which were recorded in its
7 financial accounts for the current taxable year.
8 (C) Change to Consolidated Report of Condition and
9 in Qualification. In the event the Consolidated Report
10 of Condition which is filed with the Federal Deposit
11 Insurance Corporation and other regulatory authorities
12 is altered so that the information required for
13 determining the floor amount is not found on Schedule
14 A, lines 2.c., 5.b. and 7.a., the financial institution
15 shall notify the Department and the Department may, by
16 regulations or otherwise, prescribe or authorize the
17 use of an alternative source for such information. The
18 financial institution shall also notify the Department
19 should its international banking facility fail to
20 qualify as such, in whole or in part, or should there
21 be any amendment or change to the Consolidated Report
22 of Condition, as originally filed, to the extent such
23 amendment or change alters the information used in
24 determining the floor amount.
25 (3) For taxable years ending on or after December 31,
26 2008, the business income of a financial organization shall

SB0007- 172 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 be apportioned to this State by multiplying such income by
2 a fraction, the numerator of which is its gross receipts
3 from sources in this State or otherwise attributable to
4 this State's marketplace and the denominator of which is
5 its gross receipts everywhere during the taxable year.
6 "Gross receipts" for purposes of this subparagraph (3)
7 means gross income, including net taxable gain on
8 disposition of assets, including securities and money
9 market instruments, when derived from transactions and
10 activities in the regular course of the financial

21 equities; and foreign currency transactions. With
22 respect to the investment and trading assets and
23 activities described in subparagraphs (A) and (B)
24 of this paragraph, the receipts factor shall
25 include the amounts described in such
26 subparagraphs.

SB0007- 175 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 (A) The receipts factor shall include the
2 amount by which interest from federal funds
3 sold and securities purchased under resale
4 agreements exceeds interest expense on federal
5 funds purchased and securities sold under

7 (B) The receipts factor shall include the
8 amount by which interest, dividends, gains and
9 other income from trading assets and
10 activities, including but not limited to
11 assets and activities in the matched book, in
12 the arbitrage book, and foreign currency
13 transactions, exceed amounts paid in lieu of

22 (A) The amount of interest, dividends, net
23 gains (but not less than zero), and other
24 income from investment assets and activities
25 in the investment account to be attributed to
26 this State and included in the numerator is

SB0007- 176 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 determined by multiplying all such income from
2 such assets and activities by a fraction, the
3 numerator of which is the gross income from
4 such assets and activities which are properly
5 assigned to a fixed place of business of the
6 taxpayer within this State and the denominator
7 of which is the gross income from all such
8 assets and activities.
9 (B) The amount of interest from federal
10 funds sold and purchased and from securities
11 purchased under resale agreements and
12 securities sold under repurchase agreements
13 attributable to this State and included in the
14 numerator is determined by multiplying the
15 amount described in subparagraph (A) of
16 paragraph (1) of this subsection from such
17 funds and such securities by a fraction, the
18 numerator of which is the gross income from
19 such funds and such securities which are
20 properly assigned to a fixed place of business
21 of the taxpayer within this State and the
22 denominator of which is the gross income from
23 all such funds and such securities.
24 (C) The amount of interest, dividends,
25 gains, and other income from trading assets and
26 activities, including but not limited to

SB0007- 177 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 assets and activities in the matched book, in
2 the arbitrage book and foreign currency
3 transactions (but excluding amounts described
4 in subparagraphs (A) or (B) of this paragraph),
5 attributable to this State and included in the
6 numerator is determined by multiplying the
7 amount described in subparagraph (B) of
8 paragraph (1) of this subsection by a fraction,
9 the numerator of which is the gross income from
10 such trading assets and activities which are
11 properly assigned to a fixed place of business
12 of the taxpayer within this State and the
13 denominator of which is the gross income from
14 all such assets and activities.
15 (D) Properly assigned, for purposes of
16 this paragraph (2) of this subsection, means
17 the investment or trading asset or activity is
18 assigned to the fixed place of business with
19 which it has a preponderance of substantive
20 contacts. An investment or trading asset or
21 activity assigned by the taxpayer to a fixed
22 place of business without the State shall be
23 presumed to have been properly assigned if:
24 (i) the taxpayer has assigned, in the
25 regular course of its business, such asset
26 or activity on its records to a fixed place

SB0007- 178 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 of business consistent with federal or
2 state regulatory requirements;
3 (ii) such assignment on its records is
4 based upon substantive contacts of the
5 asset or activity to such fixed place of
6 business; and
7 (iii) the taxpayer uses such records
8 reflecting assignment of such assets or
9 activities for the filing of all state and
10 local tax returns for which an assignment
11 of such assets or activities to a fixed
12 place of business is required.
13 (E) The presumption of proper assignment
14 of an investment or trading asset or activity
15 provided in subparagraph (D) of paragraph (2)
16 of this subsection may be rebutted upon a
17 showing by the Department, supported by a
18 preponderance of the evidence, that the
19 preponderance of substantive contacts
20 regarding such asset or activity did not occur
21 at the fixed place of business to which it was
22 assigned on the taxpayer's records. If the
23 fixed place of business that has a
24 preponderance of substantive contacts cannot
25 be determined for an investment or trading
26 asset or activity to which the presumption in

SB0007- 179 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 subparagraph (D) of paragraph (2) of this
2 subsection does not apply or with respect to
3 which that presumption has been rebutted, that
4 asset or activity is properly assigned to the
5 state in which the taxpayer's commercial
6 domicile is located. For purposes of this
7 subparagraph (E), it shall be presumed,
8 subject to rebuttal, that taxpayer's
9 commercial domicile is in the state of the
10 United States or the District of Columbia to
11 which the greatest number of employees are
12 regularly connected with the management of the
13 investment or trading income or out of which
14 they are working, irrespective of where the
15 services of such employees are performed, as of
16 the last day of the taxable year.

19 (c-1) Federally regulated exchanges. For taxable years
20ending on or after December 31, 2012, business income of a
21federally regulated exchange shall, at the option of the
22federally regulated exchange, be apportioned to this State by
23multiplying such income by a fraction, the numerator of which
24is its business income from sources within this State, and the
25denominator of which is its business income from all sources.
26For purposes of this subsection, the business income within

SB0007- 180 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1this State of a federally regulated exchange is the sum of the
2following:
3 (1) Receipts attributable to transactions executed on
4 a physical trading floor if that physical trading floor is
5 located in this State.
6 (2) Receipts attributable to all other matching,
7 execution, or clearing transactions, including without
8 limitation receipts from the provision of matching,
9 execution, or clearing services to another entity,
10 multiplied by (i) for taxable years ending on or after
11 December 31, 2012 but before December 31, 2013, 63.77%; and
12 (ii) for taxable years ending on or after December 31,
13 2013, 27.54%.
14 (3) All other receipts not governed by subparagraphs
15 (1) or (2) of this subsection (c-1), to the extent the
16 receipts would be characterized as "sales in this State"
17 under item (3) of subsection (a) of this Section.
18 "Federally regulated exchange" means (i) a "registered
19entity" within the meaning of 7 U.S.C. Section 1a(40)(A), (B),
20or (C), (ii) an "exchange" or "clearing agency" within the
21meaning of 15 U.S.C. Section 78c (a)(1) or (23), (iii) any such
22entities regulated under any successor regulatory structure to
23the foregoing, and (iv) all taxpayers who are members of the
24same unitary business group as a federally regulated exchange,
25determined without regard to the prohibition in Section
261501(a)(27) of this Act against including in a unitary business

SB0007- 181 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1group taxpayers who are ordinarily required to apportion
2business income under different subsections of this Section;
3provided that this subparagraph (iv) shall apply only if 50% or
4more of the business receipts of the unitary business group
5determined by application of this subparagraph (iv) for the
6taxable year are attributable to the matching, execution, or
7clearing of transactions conducted by an entity described in
8subparagraph (i), (ii), or (iii) of this paragraph.
9 In no event shall the Illinois apportionment percentage
10computed in accordance with this subsection (c-1) for any
11taxpayer for any tax year be less than the Illinois
12apportionment percentage computed under this subsection (c-1)
13for that taxpayer for the first full tax year ending on or
14after December 31, 2013 for which this subsection (c-1) applied
15to the taxpayer.
16 (d) Transportation services. For taxable years ending
17before December 31, 2008, business income derived from
18furnishing transportation services shall be apportioned to
19this State in accordance with paragraphs (1) and (2):
20 (1) Such business income (other than that derived from
21 transportation by pipeline) shall be apportioned to this
22 State by multiplying such income by a fraction, the
23 numerator of which is the revenue miles of the person in
24 this State, and the denominator of which is the revenue
25 miles of the person everywhere. For purposes of this
26 paragraph, a revenue mile is the transportation of 1

SB0007- 182 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 passenger or 1 net ton of freight the distance of 1 mile
2 for a consideration. Where a person is engaged in the
3 transportation of both passengers and freight, the
4 fraction above referred to shall be determined by means of
5 an average of the passenger revenue mile fraction and the
6 freight revenue mile fraction, weighted to reflect the
7 person's
8 (A) relative railway operating income from total
9 passenger and total freight service, as reported to the
10 Interstate Commerce Commission, in the case of
11 transportation by railroad, and
12 (B) relative gross receipts from passenger and
13 freight transportation, in case of transportation
14 other than by railroad.
15 (2) Such business income derived from transportation
16 by pipeline shall be apportioned to this State by
17 multiplying such income by a fraction, the numerator of
18 which is the revenue miles of the person in this State, and
19 the denominator of which is the revenue miles of the person
20 everywhere. For the purposes of this paragraph, a revenue
21 mile is the transportation by pipeline of 1 barrel of oil,
22 1,000 cubic feet of gas, or of any specified quantity of
23 any other substance, the distance of 1 mile for a
24 consideration.
25 (3) For taxable years ending on or after December 31,
26 2008, business income derived from providing

SB0007- 183 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 transportation services other than airline services shall
2 be apportioned to this State by using a fraction, (a) the
3 numerator of which shall be (i) all receipts from any
4 movement or shipment of people, goods, mail, oil, gas, or
5 any other substance (other than by airline) that both
6 originates and terminates in this State, plus (ii) that
7 portion of the person's gross receipts from movements or
8 shipments of people, goods, mail, oil, gas, or any other
9 substance (other than by airline) that originates in one
10 state or jurisdiction and terminates in another state or
11 jurisdiction, that is determined by the ratio that the
12 miles traveled in this State bears to total miles
13 everywhere and (b) the denominator of which shall be all
14 revenue derived from the movement or shipment of people,
15 goods, mail, oil, gas, or any other substance (other than
16 by airline). Where a taxpayer is engaged in the
17 transportation of both passengers and freight, the
18 fraction above referred to shall first be determined
19 separately for passenger miles and freight miles. Then an
20 average of the passenger miles fraction and the freight
21 miles fraction shall be weighted to reflect the taxpayer's:
22 (A) relative railway operating income from total
23 passenger and total freight service, as reported to the
24 Surface Transportation Board, in the case of
25 transportation by railroad; and
26 (B) relative gross receipts from passenger and

SB0007- 184 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 freight transportation, in case of transportation
2 other than by railroad.
3 (4) For taxable years ending on or after December 31,
4 2008, business income derived from furnishing airline
5 transportation services shall be apportioned to this State
6 by multiplying such income by a fraction, the numerator of
7 which is the revenue miles of the person in this State, and
8 the denominator of which is the revenue miles of the person
9 everywhere. For purposes of this paragraph, a revenue mile
10 is the transportation of one passenger or one net ton of
11 freight the distance of one mile for a consideration. If a
12 person is engaged in the transportation of both passengers
13 and freight, the fraction above referred to shall be
14 determined by means of an average of the passenger revenue
15 mile fraction and the freight revenue mile fraction,
16 weighted to reflect the person's relative gross receipts
17 from passenger and freight airline transportation.
18 (e) Combined apportionment. Where 2 or more persons are
19engaged in a unitary business as described in subsection
20(a)(27) of Section 1501, a part of which is conducted in this
21State by one or more members of the group, the business income
22attributable to this State by any such member or members shall
23be apportioned by means of the combined apportionment method.
24 (f) Alternative allocation. If the allocation and
25apportionment provisions of subsections (a) through (e) and of
26subsection (h) do not, for taxable years ending before December

SB0007- 185 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
131, 2008, fairly represent the extent of a person's business
2activity in this State, or, for taxable years ending on or
3after December 31, 2008, fairly represent the market for the
4person's goods, services, or other sources of business income,
5the person may petition for, or the Director may, without a
6petition, permit or require, in respect of all or any part of
7the person's business activity, if reasonable:
8 (1) Separate accounting;
9 (2) The exclusion of any one or more factors;
10 (3) The inclusion of one or more additional factors
11 which will fairly represent the person's business
12 activities or market in this State; or
13 (4) The employment of any other method to effectuate an
14 equitable allocation and apportionment of the person's
15 business income.
16 (g) Cross reference. For allocation of business income by
17residents, see Section 301(a).
18 (h) For tax years ending on or after December 31, 1998, the
19apportionment factor of persons who apportion their business
20income to this State under subsection (a) shall be equal to:
21 (1) for tax years ending on or after December 31, 1998
22 and before December 31, 1999, 16 2/3% of the property
23 factor plus 16 2/3% of the payroll factor plus 66 2/3% of
24 the sales factor;
25 (2) for tax years ending on or after December 31, 1999
26 and before December 31, 2000, 8 1/3% of the property factor

SB0007- 186 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 plus 8 1/3% of the payroll factor plus 83 1/3% of the sales
2 factor;
3 (3) for tax years ending on or after December 31, 2000,
4 the sales factor.
5If, in any tax year ending on or after December 31, 1998 and
6before December 31, 2000, the denominator of the payroll,
7property, or sales factor is zero, the apportionment factor
8computed in paragraph (1) or (2) of this subsection for that
9year shall be divided by an amount equal to 100% minus the
10percentage weight given to each factor whose denominator is
11equal to zero.

11located in Madison County requests racing dates resulting in
12less than 700 live thoroughbred races at its race track
13facility, the electronic gaming licensee may not conduct

17Illinois Gambling Act or any provision of this Act other than
18subsections (e-3) and (e-4.5), for each calendar year for which
19an electronic gaming licensee requests racing dates for a
20specific horse breed which results in a number of live races
21for that specific breed under its organization license that is
22less than the total number of live races for that specific
23breed which it conducted in 2011 for standardbred racing and in

SB0007- 218 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 (e-4.5) The Board shall ensure that each organization
2licensee shall individually run a sufficient number of races
3per year to qualify for an electronic gaming license under this
4Act. The General Assembly finds that the minimum live racing
5guarantees contained in subsections (e-1), (e-2), and (e-3) are
6in the best interest of the sport of horse racing, and that
7such guarantees may only be reduced in the limited
8circumstances described in this subsection. The Board may
9decrease the number of racing days without affecting an
10organization licensee's ability to conduct electronic gaming
11only if the Board determines, after notice and hearing, that:
12 (i) a decrease is necessary to maintain a sufficient
13 number of betting interests per race to ensure the
14 integrity of racing;
15 (ii) there are unsafe track conditions due to weather
16 or acts of God;
17 (iii) there is an agreement between an organization
18 licensee and the breed association that is applicable to
19 the involved live racing guarantee, such association
20 representing either the largest number of thoroughbred
21 owners and trainers or the largest number of standardbred
22 owners, trainers and drivers who race horses at the
23 involved organization licensee's racing meeting, so long
24 as the agreement does not compromise the integrity of the
25 sport of horse racing; or
26 (iv) the horse population or purse levels are

SB0007- 219 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 insufficient to provide the number of racing opportunities
2 otherwise required in this Act.
3 In decreasing the number of racing dates in accordance with
4this subsection, the Board shall hold a hearing and shall
5provide the public and all interested parties notice and an
6opportunity to be heard. The Board shall accept testimony from
7all interested parties, including any association representing
8owners, trainers, jockeys, or drivers who will be affected by
9the decrease in racing dates. The Board shall provide a written
10explanation of the reasons for the decrease and the Board's
11findings. The written explanation shall include a listing and
12content of all communication between any party and any Illinois
13Racing Board member or staff that does not take place at a
14public meeting of the Board.
15 (e-5) In reviewing an application for the purpose of
16granting an organization license consistent with the best
17interests of the public and the sport of horse racing, the
18Board shall consider:
19 (1) the character, reputation, experience, and
20 financial integrity of the applicant and of any other
21 separate person that either:
22 (i) controls the applicant, directly or
23 indirectly, or
24 (ii) is controlled, directly or indirectly, by
25 that applicant or by a person who controls, directly or
26 indirectly, that applicant;

SB0007- 220 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1 (2) the applicant's facilities or proposed facilities
2 for conducting horse racing;
3 (3) the total revenue without regard to Section 32.1 to
4 be derived by the State and horsemen from the applicant's
5 conducting a race meeting;
6 (4) the applicant's good faith affirmative action plan
7 to recruit, train, and upgrade minorities in all employment
8 classifications;
9 (5) the applicant's financial ability to purchase and
10 maintain adequate liability and casualty insurance;
11 (6) the applicant's proposed and prior year's
12 promotional and marketing activities and expenditures of
13 the applicant associated with those activities;
14 (7) an agreement, if any, among organization licensees
15 as provided in subsection (b) of Section 21 of this Act;
16 and
17 (8) the extent to which the applicant exceeds or meets
18 other standards for the issuance of an organization license
19 that the Board shall adopt by rule.
20 In granting organization licenses and allocating dates for
21horse race meetings, the Board shall have discretion to
22determine an overall schedule, including required simulcasts
23of Illinois races by host tracks that will, in its judgment, be
24conducive to the best interests of the public and the sport of
25horse racing.
26 (e-10) The Illinois Administrative Procedure Act shall

SB0007- 221 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1apply to administrative procedures of the Board under this Act
2for the granting of an organization license, except that (1)
3notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (b) of Section
410-40 of the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act regarding
5cross-examination, the Board may prescribe rules limiting the
6right of an applicant or participant in any proceeding to award
7an organization license to conduct cross-examination of
8witnesses at that proceeding where that cross-examination
9would unduly obstruct the timely award of an organization
10license under subsection (e) of Section 20 of this Act; (2) the
11provisions of Section 10-45 of the Illinois Administrative
12Procedure Act regarding proposals for decision are excluded
13under this Act; (3) notwithstanding the provisions of
14subsection (a) of Section 10-60 of the Illinois Administrative
15Procedure Act regarding ex parte communications, the Board may
16prescribe rules allowing ex parte communications with
17applicants or participants in a proceeding to award an
18organization license where conducting those communications
19would be in the best interest of racing, provided all those
20communications are made part of the record of that proceeding
21pursuant to subsection (c) of Section 10-60 of the Illinois
22Administrative Procedure Act; (4) the provisions of Section 14a
23of this Act and the rules of the Board promulgated under that
24Section shall apply instead of the provisions of Article 10 of
25the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act regarding
26administrative law judges; and (5) the provisions of subsection

SB0007- 222 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1(d) of Section 10-65 of the Illinois Administrative Procedure
2Act that prevent summary suspension of a license pending
3revocation or other action shall not apply.
4 (f) The Board may allot racing dates to an organization
5licensee for more than one calendar year but for no more than 3
6successive calendar years in advance, provided that the Board
7shall review such allotment for more than one calendar year
8prior to each year for which such allotment has been made. The
9granting of an organization license to a person constitutes a
10privilege to conduct a horse race meeting under the provisions
11of this Act, and no person granted an organization license
12shall be deemed to have a vested interest, property right, or
13future expectation to receive an organization license in any
14subsequent year as a result of the granting of an organization
15license. Organization licenses shall be subject to revocation
16if the organization licensee has violated any provision of this
17Act or the rules and regulations promulgated under this Act or
18has been convicted of a crime or has failed to disclose or has
19stated falsely any information called for in the application
20for an organization license. Any organization license
21revocation proceeding shall be in accordance with Section 16
22regarding suspension and revocation of occupation licenses.
23 (f-5) If, (i) an applicant does not file an acceptance of
24the racing dates awarded by the Board as required under part
25(1) of subsection (h) of this Section 20, or (ii) an
26organization licensee has its license suspended or revoked

SB0007- 223 -LRB100 06307 AMC 16345 b
1under this Act, the Board, upon conducting an emergency hearing
2as provided for in this Act, may reaward on an emergency basis
3pursuant to rules established by the Board, racing dates not
4accepted or the racing dates associated with any suspension or
5revocation period to one or more organization licensees, new
6applicants, or any combination thereof, upon terms and
7conditions that the Board determines are in the best interest
8of racing, provided, the organization licensees or new
9applicants receiving the awarded racing dates file an
10acceptance of those reawarded racing dates as required under
11paragraph (1) of subsection (h) of this Section 20 and comply
12with the other provisions of this Act. The Illinois
