What is the basis or starting point for calculating the tax on Illinois business income?

Under the Illinois Income Tax Act, the computation of taxable "net income" begins with the taxpayer's federal taxable income for business taxpayers and then makes various additions and subtraction modifications. See your specific tax type under Income and Replacement Taxes on our Illinois Tax Information web page for more information.
