Printed Invoices will contain IDOR information at the bottom. The first line is the month to date amount, while the bottom line is the amount on this invoice only.
The Illinois Taxes Plugin adds the capability to compute taxes for the Illinois Department of Revenue (IDOR) Tax Module. For more information on IDOR, see IDOR Website. As of January 1, 2003, IDOR began accepting Liquor Return filings electronically. eoStar's Illinois Tax Plugin fully complies with the specifications (revision 9/04) drafted by IDOR.

Changes 2011 - Clockwork

Changes in April 2011 to the IDOR tax submission specifications have revealed the great difficulty we face in ensuring that our tax-submission procedures adhere to the standards set forth by IDOR. As a distributor, Clockwork is in a position to receive information in a far timelier manner, allowing them to ensure compliance. It is for this reason that we are happy to announce our partnership with Clockwork.
