It's not tax abatement...it's a tax refund which is a financing tool. And there's lots more than what is listed on your link It's a rather long section of 65 ILCS 5/11-74 http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/ilcs/ilcs4.asp?Ac...

The TIF district does not include a Property Tax abatement. Those are features of the Enterprise Zone which this site is not a part of. Would like to know how we are going to force that one through against our rules.....not that I doubt they will do it. Take a look at the eligible TIF expenses and tell me where they are going to lie to us to classify 1.8 million of a 4 million project as TIF eligible.…

Just remember that getting taxable property there doesn't bring in any extra $$ for the city. What it does is lower property taxes for the rest of us. Obviously more $$ back for more expensive properties (i.e. same % saved across the board). By the same token the TIF district raises our taxes until such time as the TIF expires. That's because some of the tax $$ are diverted to a special…

Illinois lawmakers advance 'cupcake' bill inspired by 12-year-old baker

4 months, 1 week ago foxnews.com

Measure comes after town shut down home bakery

From foxnews.com:

An Illinois Senate committee on Tuesday gave approval to legislation prompted by the shutdown of an Illinois girl's home-baked cupcake operation.

The Belleville News-Democrat reported that the Senate Public Health Committee voted 6-0 to approve home-baking regulations requiring sellers to go through sanitation training, pay fees, label ingredients, and let consumers know the product was made in a home kitchen.

 
 

The measure applies to those making less than $1,000 per month.

Chloe Stirling's home kitchen operation in Troy was shut down by the Madison County Health Department earlier this year. Officials said they were enforcing a law governing businesses that sell and distribute food to the general public.

State Sen. Donne Trotter, a Democrat, told the News-Democrat the regulations included in the bill are aimed at protecting the public from food-borne illnesses.

"I don't foresee that we're going to be raiding lemonade stands or cupcake sales," Trotter said.

Another committee member, Sen. Dave Syverson, R-Rockford, told the newspaper he is concerned about imposing regulations on church bake sales and other fundraisers. He said he is supporting a compromise amendment to the bill.

The 12-year-old appeared before the committee Tuesday, bringing with her two containers of cupcakes. She later met Gov. Pat Quinn and gave him four cupcakes. 

"I'm here so people like me can bake things out of their home and sell them," she told legislators.

The legislation now moves to the full Senate for consideration.
