An ordinance has been filed which will impose a tax on retailers that use automated self-checkout kiosks. This ordinance taxes retailers $20,000.00 for each automated self-checkout kiosk operated at their establishment. The burden for paying this tax cannot be shifted onto customers. There are record-keeping requirements and other rules set forth by the ordinance. Proceeds from the tax, including interest and penalties, will be allocated to Transitional Jobs Programs within the Department of Family & Support Services Workforce Services Programs.

This ordinance is currently in the Chicago City Council Rules Committee.
