State of Illinois Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates - Click Here

Dear Friend,

To help relieve the burden on the small business owners who are bearing an unprecedented burden during the COVID-19 outbreak, the State of Illinois is working with authorities to make relief available. Read about how below.

Small business loans



To assist business owners, the State of Illinois has received an economic injury disaster declaration from the U.S. Small Business Administration. The application requires data from businesses in every county to justify the declaration from the federal government. This disaster declaration will help open up avenues of funding for small businesses in Illinois that have been negatively impacted by COVID-19. You can see all related info on their website here.

If your business, regardless of how small, has been affected by COVID-19, please take two minutes to complete the survey here.

Sales tax deferral

Sales taxes will be deferred for small- and medium-sized bars and restaurants in March, April and May. More details about tax relief are available from the Illinois Department of Revenue website here.
