Illinois – Update to Proposed Amendments to Shipping and Handling Regulations

SALT Report 2679 – On May 14, 2013, the Illinois Department of Revenue agreed to withdraw its proposed amendments to its shipping and handling regulations because the Illinois Joint Committee on Administrative Rules voted unanimously to reject the Department’s proposed regulations.

As previously reported in SALT Report 2337 the proposed amendments would have imposed sales and use tax on all shipping and handling charges, regardless of whether they were separately agreed to.

A Notice Of Withdraw To Meet The Objection Of The Joint Committee Of Administrative Rules was published in the June 21, 2013 Illinois Register.
