Other HIB Tax Incentives
Note that while other qualifying HIBs may be eligible for additional tax incentives including an investment tax credit, an exemption from state gas and electric tax, and a state sales tax exemption on personal property used or consumed in the manufacturing process or in the operation of a pollution control facility, a Wind Energy / High Impact Business only qualifies for the sales tax exemption on building materials.
A wind power facility must apply to the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) for designation as Wind Energy Business within the High Impact Business Program. Applications are accepted throughout the year. Once an application is received, DCEO will respond within 30 days. Required application information is available in the administrative code (14 Ill. Adm. Code, Part 520.603).
