Taxpayer Victory In Refund Case Involving Illinois Amnesty Program

>The Illinois Appellate Court, 1st District, issued a decision in favor of the taxpayer in Con-Way Transportation Services, Inc. v. Hamer. The Court held that Con-Way Transportation Services, Inc., who was undergoing a federal audit at the time of an Illinois amnesty program, is entitled to a refund of tax paid under amnesty for the 1997 tax year because the return requesting such refund was timely filed pursuant to the applicable statute of limitations set forth in Section 911(b) of the Illinois Income Tax Act. Fred Marcus and Jennifer Zimmerman of Horwood Marcus & Berk represented the Taxpayer in this case.
