Illinois Senate passes "privilege tax"


The Illinois Senate has passed SB 1719, which would impose a 20 percent "privilege tax" on fees earned by partnerships and S corporations engaged in the business of conducting "investment management services".

The tax would be imposed on "fees calculated by reference to the performance of the investment portfolio" rather than on the performance from "the investment itself" or "fees calculated by reference to the total assets under management."
