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 at the various venues; therefore, it is preferred that you pre-register with our office at least three business days before the workshop is held. However, we will welcome walk-in registrations. 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 2018

The workshops have been scheduled with the assumption we will have a budget in place for Fiscal Year 2019. Unfortunately, if a budget is not passed, we may have to cancel the workshops currently scheduled for Huntley. We will notify registrants in the event their scheduled workshop is cancelled. We will also post the cancellations on our website.

We regret that we must reserve the right to cancel any workshop for which fewer than 20 registrations are received.  Should it become necessary to cancel the workshop you selected, you will be notified in advance and every effort will be made to accommodate you at an alternate location.

The workshop date, location and check-in/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.
