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:

Dates and locations for 2016

This year the Local Tax Allocation Division will be experimenting with holding a few of our local government workshop sessions in the afternoon or evening hours to allow more local government officials and their staff to attend a workshop session. If the workshops are successful, we will continue to schedule 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 2017. Unfortunately, if a budget is not passed, we may have to cancel the workshops currently scheduled for Sterling, Harrisburg, Effingham, and Good Hope.

The workshop date, location and registration time is 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.
