§ 5-5. Late filing fees. In the event that a liquor license holder fails to submit a license renewal application
to the Commission before or on the expiration date of the current license, the licensee

Health or any other agency of the State as a result of COVID-19. The late filing fee waiver shall remain in effect for 6 months after whichever of
the following dates occurs the latest:
(1) the day on which the region in which the liquor licensee is located enters Phase
4 of the Governor's Restore Illinois Plan as issued on May 5, 2020;
(2) the day after the expiration of the latest executive order that limits or interrupts
the business or business operations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic; or
(3) the day after the expiration of any rules established by the Department of Public
Health or any other agency of the State that limit or interrupt the business or business
operations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
