Groundbreaking Legislation on Property Tax and Sales Tax Exemptions for Illinois Hospitals


Illinois Governor Patrick Quinn just signed into law a comprehensive and groundbreaking legislative package that significantly changes the criteria for establishing and maintaining property tax exemptions and sales tax exemptions for Illinois not-for-profit hospitals and their affiliates.
