As of July 1, 2017, certificates for sales tax registration issued by Illinois will renew on an annual basis. Before, certificates renewed every five years.
Despite the change, certificates issued before July 1, 2017, will renew after five years. However, later renewals of those certificates will occur annually.
The Department of Revenue may still revoke certificates when requirements are not met.
