Illinois Compiled Statutes 35 ILCS 1010 Illinois Independent Tax Tribunal Act of 2012. Section 1-85

    (35 ILCS 1010/1-85)

    Sec. 1-85. Publication of decisions and electronic submission of documents.

    (a) The Tax Tribunal shall, within 180 days of the issuance of a decision, index and publish its final decision in such print or electronic form as it deems best adapted for public convenience. Such publications shall be made permanently available and constitute the official reports of the Tax Tribunal.

    (b) All published decisions shall be edited by the Tax Tribunal so that the identification number of the taxpayer and any related entities or employees, and any trade secrets or other intellectual property, are not disclosed or identified.

    (c) Within 30 days following the issuance of any hearing decision, the taxpayer affected by the decision may also request that the Tax Tribunal omit specifically identified trade secrets or other confidential or proprietary information prior to publication of the decision. The Tax Tribunal shall approve those requests if it determines that the requests are reasonable and that the disclosure of such information would potentially cause economic or other injury to the taxpayer.

    (d) The Tax Tribunal shall provide, by rule, reasonable requirements for the electronic submission of documents and records and the method and type of symbol or security procedure it will accept to authenticate electronic submissions or as a legal signature.

    (e) Each year, no later than October 1, the Tax Tribunal shall report to the General Assembly regarding the Tax Tribunal's operations during the prior fiscal year. Such report shall include the number of cases opened and closed, the size of its docket, the average age of cases, the dollar amount of cases by tax type, the number of cases decided in favor of the Department, the number of cases decided in favor of the taxpayer, the number of cases resolved through mediation or settlement, and such other statistics so as to apprise the General Assembly of whether the Tax Tribunal has successfully accomplished its mission to fairly and efficiently adjudicate tax disputes.
