Recently, the Cook County Board of Commissioners repealed the Sweetened Beverage Tax. That repeal will be effective December 1, 2017, and the last tax returns/payments will be due on December 20, 2017. On December 1, 2017, there may be unsold product in restaurants on which tax was previously remitted to distributors.

Both distributors and retailers may request a credit or refund. Refund procedures vary depending on if a retailer remitted the tax to distributors, remitted the floor tax, and other scenarios.

Please contact Matt Quinn, IRA Government Relations & Communications Manager, at (312) 380-4122 or with any questions.
