Running a successful business today is more difficult than ever. There are laws to follow, bills to
pay, employees to care for, and taxes to file. In an effort to help you meet these ongoing
challenges, the Illinois Liquor Control Commission (ILCC) will focus on ways to maximize your
business potential in this issue of ILCC News.
With the start of a new year, your thoughts may begin to turn to that inescapable chore in
American life—paying your taxes. On page 7, we list three quick and straightforward methods for
filing your liquor sales tax returns. The New Year also requires new signage. On page 5, you will find
ordering instructions for the 2006 tobacco and liquor “proof of age”
signs, along with a variety of other new ILCC materials.
Believe it or not, spring is right around the corner. With the warmer
weather comes more outdoor activities, such as special events. To keep
current on the liquor laws governing special events, please turn to page
4 for details on how to order the new, business-friendly “How to Apply
for a Special Event Liquor License” DVD. Copies of this ILCC-produced
video are available free-of-charge.
As always, if you are unclear on any other issues relative to the operation of your business, please
contact the ILCC at 312-814-2206. We take pride in our ability to serve your needs.
Finally, do your children—or your employee’s children—have medical insurance? On page 3, we
describe a new, innovative program that will provide comprehensive health insurance for All Kids in
Illinois. The Illinois Liquor Control Commission wishes you and your business a happy, healthy, and
successful New Year.
