Sales and use taxes apply to 80% of the proceeds from the sale of fuels containing 10% ethanol (E10) made between July 1, 2003, and December 31, 2018. If at any time these taxes are imposed at a rate of 1.25%, the tax on E10 will apply to 100% of the proceeds of sales. State sales and use taxes do not apply to fuels containing between 70% and 90% ethanol (E70-E90) sold between July 1, 2003, and December 31, 2018. Taxes will apply to 100% of the proceeds from ethanol fuel blend sales made after December 31, 2018. (Reference 35 Illinois Compiled Statutes 120/2-10, 105/3-10, and 105/3-44)
