SBAC voice grows stronger and louder as Governor proposes to significantly lower LLC filing fees in his State of the State Address!

  • The SBAC and our Coalition members have been working to pass legislation that would lower all LLC fees
  • After a great deal of education and outreach to our local legislators and the Governor’s office from all of our members in support of reducing these fees, we are excited to announce that the Governor proposed lowering SBAC filing fees from $500 to $39 and series LLC fees from $750 to $59 in his State of the State Address last week 
  • The SBAC and our Coalition will continue to support this legislation as it is debated in the Illinois House and Senate and will keep you posted on its progress
