Informal Conference Board/Implementing Section 2505-510, and authorized by Section 2505-795, of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois [20 ILCS 2505/2505-510 and2505-795]

This rulemaking extends the time that must remain on the statute of limitations before Informal Conference Board (ICB) rights will be granted from 60 days to 180 days. That ensures the Audit Bureau has enough time to complete the internal review process and issue an assessment when taxpayers do not avail themselves of the ICB. This rulemaking provides that ICB will not hold cases nor make adjustments to issues that are related to pending litigation. This rulemaking also would expand ICB jurisdiction to include audit adjustments that result in reductions to net operating losses rather than assessments or claim denials. This allows taxpayers to seek informal review of the audit adjustments without having to wait until the losses have been used completely and a deficiency results. However, no protest rights will be afforded in these cases to remain consistent with IRS procedure.
