Appeals

Section 7-9 of the Liquor Control Act of 1934 provides for the appeal of an order issued by a local liquor commission to be conducted by the ILCC (except for orders entered by the Chicago Liquor Commission).

Appeals can be filed in person or via mail at our Chicago office.

The proper mailing address for filing appeals from a local liquor commission order is Illinois Liquor Control Commission, Attn: Legal/Appeals, 50 West Washington Street, Suite 209,  Chicago, IL 60602. 

If you have any further questions regarding the appeals process, please call our Legal Division at 312-814-1564. More information about Appeals can be found in Section 7-9 of the Liquor Control Act of 1934 and in Section 100.350 of the Administrative Rules.

Additionally, each appeal should include a single .PDF version of any documents being filed.  The .PDF version may be included on a removable drive (CD/DVD/Flash Drive) containing the file(s) with the mailing or e-mailed to ILCC.LEGAL@ILLINOIS.GOV. However, e-mail does not constitute the initial filing of an appeal.

All appeals must contain e-mail contact information for both parties. 

Once an appeal has been received, the ILCC will send additional instructions to the parties.
