IDOR Workshops

TO ALL CLERKS, TREASURERS, FISCAL OFFICERS, MAYORS, VILLAGE PRESIDENTS AND COUNTY BOARD CHAIRMEN

The Illinois Department of Revenue will be holding informational workshops in calendar 2017 to discuss items related to the allocation and distribution of taxes to local governments including updates on changes that have happened as well as some exciting news for the future.  Some of the topics that will be covered will include:  Annexations, Business District Taxes, Rebate Sharing Agreement reporting, changes in the reciprocal agreements for exchange of confidential information, and the Annual Taxpayer Location Address List.

We encourage municipal officials, county officials and their staff members to attend the workshops.  Clerks, treasurers, fiscal officers, and staff who are responsible for reviewing taxpayer listings are personnel who also could benefit from these workshops. 

There are no fees associated with the workshops and no limit on the number of people from each local government who may attend.  Please visit our website to register for one of the workshops dates at .  Please provide the following information for each person attending the workshop when you register:

Dates and locations for 2017

This year the Local Tax Allocation Division will again hold workshops in the afternoon or evening hours in addition to our morning hours to allow more local government officials and their staff to attend a workshop session. Our pilot program last year to determine if holding workshops in the afternoon and evening hours would give local governments a better opportunity to attend the workshops proved to be successful; therefore, we will continue to schedule morning, afternoon, and evening hour workshops in the following years.

The workshops have been scheduled with the assumption we will have a budget in place for Fiscal Year 2018. Unfortunately, if a budget is not passed, we may have to cancel the workshops currently scheduled for Elburn, Galesburg, Marion and Charleston. We will notify registrants in the event their scheduled workshop is cancelled. We will also post the cancellations on our website.

The workshop date, location and check-in/registration time is listed with each workshop.
