Mining Sales Tax Exemption

Extends the exemption for coal and aggregate exploration, mining, off-highway hauling, processing, maintenance, and reclamation equipment sunsets on June 30, 2023 (previously, August 15, 2018). Seeks to help Illinois mining companies compete on a level playing field with companies in other states. Every state surrounding Illinois has similar sales tax exemptions for mining equipment. Extending this exemption allows mining companies some certainty over future equipment costs.
