The Illinois Department of Revenue (IDOR) recently announced an expansion of its audit resolution program as it braces for a wave of litigation over amendments to the state’s marketplace facilitator law. The department expands its Audit Fast Track Resolution (FTR) Program to all sales and miscellaneous tax audits except for Motor Fuel Use Tax. The newly-expanded FTR program could become an efficient method of settling some sales tax disputes, but disagreements involving the state’s amended marketplace facilitator law will ultimately need to be resolved by legislature or courts.

In this article published by Bloomberg Tax, Eversheds Sutherland Partner Breen Schiller and Associate Dennis Jansen explain why the program won’t stop litigation.
