    We have urgent information about proposed Senate Bill 9, currently being considered in the Illinois legislature.  

    • This bill contains an amendment that would impose a 6.25% service tax on all landscaping, snow removal services, and potentially other contracted building services.
    • This encompasses all types of landscaping services - tree care, lawn care, maintenance, design-build, and snow removal.
    • The increased tax on landscaping companies will likely be passed along to property owners and managers.
    • It is estimated that this bill could result in increased costs of 3-5 cents per square foot of a commercial building. 

    IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUESTED: BOMA/Suburban Chicago's Government Affairs Committee is actively working to oppose this legislation. As part of that effort, we are asking you to contact both your state senator and state representative and tell them you oppose the service tax on landscaping and snow removal services. If you do not know your state legislator, please look him/her up by zip code and address using the link below. 

    CONTACT YOUR LEGISLATOR!

    Below is a sample email text for your use...

    Dear _____________,

    I am a property owner/manager/facility manager of a commercial __________ building in the Chicago suburban area. Senate Bill 9 will be a huge detriment to my property's operating budget! I do not support this legislation and request that you vote against it.

    Thank you,

    ________ (your name)

    More information about Senate Bill 9

    If passed, this Bill could affect many types of services, including repair, cleaning, painting, towing, and pest control services. Many of the services in the Bill are represented by BOMA Associate members and, of course, they are services needed by Regular members. The proposed tax on these services would greatly impact Regular members and Associate members alike. Read more about how Senate Bill 9 Impacts BOMA Members.
