CORPORATE PERSONAL PROPERTY REPLACEMENT TAX

Background: Taxing bodies in Illinois receive tax funds from the state known as Corporate Personal Property Replacement Tax (CPPRT). This tax revenue was created after the 1970 constitutional convention abolished local municipalities ability to tax corporate personal property. In 2014 and 2015 the Illinois Department of Revenue who is responsible for distributing the CPPRT funds mistakenly overpaid taxing districts by a total of $168 million dollars. As a result, it is likely that the state will reduce future CPPRT payments until the overpayment is recouped. The District has been overpaid $75,442.91 over the past two years. In Fiscal Year 2015 the District collected $643,785.68 and in Fiscal Year 2016 the District's estimated CPPRT funds were $656,228.00 of which the District has received $423,637.02 as of April 21, 2016.
