Horowitz & Weinstein represents taxpayers before the Illinois Department of Revenue (IDOR) almost daily on matters relating to Use Tax, Sales Tax, Motor Fuels Tax, and other tax matters. We have recently noticed an upswing in the number of cases resulting from IDOR taking enforcement action against gas stations and their owners and operators.
At the same time, new legislation is moving through the Illinois General Assembly that would make it easier for state prosecutors to charge sales tax evaders. The legislation would also make changes to the penalties related to such evasion, designating several as “non-probational.”
