Workshops For Local Government Officials

What are Local Government Workshop?
The Illinois Department of Revenue holds informational workshops 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 include:  Annexations, Business District Taxes, new Rebate Sharing Agreement reporting, and Annual Taxpayer Location Address List.

Who should attend?
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.

Are reservations required?
Seating is limited; therefore, registration is required at least five business days before the workshop is held. There are no fees associated with the workshops and no limit on the number of people from each local government who may attend. 

How do I register?
To register for a workshop or if there are any questions, you can:

Please provide the following information for each person attending the workshop when you register:

Dates and locations for 2015
Due to budget restraints for Fiscal Year 2015, we will hold four workshops.  We hope that the budget for Fiscal Year 2016, which will begin July 1, 2015, will provide our area with the additional money needed to schedule more workshops.  Please check our website for additional updates.

We are, however, looking into the possibility of holding a nighttime workshop from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the Illinois Department of Revenue building.  In order to determine if it would be feasible to hold the nighttime workshop, we are asking any official that would like to attend the workshop to contact our office.  If it is determined that we will have enough participation to hold the workshop, we will send a confirmation letter with the date to those who expressed an interest in attending the workshop.

The workshop and registration times are listed with each workshop.

Would you like to host a local government workshop?
The success of the Department’s Local Government Workshop program is due in part to the generosity of local officials throughout the State who have provided places for us to conduct the workshops.  If you have a handicap accessible facility with ample parking that will accommodate 30 to 60 people and are interested in sponsoring a workshop, please contact us for more information on becoming a host.
