Beginning July 1, 2013 the building materials exemption will be available only to those contractors or other entities with a certificate issued by the Illinois Department of Revenue. Construction contractors or other entities seeking exemption certificates must go through the Belvidere-Boone County Zone Administrator, Jarid Funderburg.

*Download the applicable form above, fill it out in its entirety (partially completed forms cannot be processed) and e-mail to info@growthdimensions.org or mail/deliver to 401 Whitney Blvd., Belvidere, IL 61008.

The Department of Revenue will issue an exemption certificate within 72 hours of receiving application.

*A Belvidere-Boone County Enterprise Zone Application and Administration Fee is now in effect. Approved Enterprise Zone projects requesting a sales tax exemption will be subject to a fee of ½ % of the total cost of construction materials included on the sales tax exemption application form. The maximum fee allowed by Public Act 97-905 is $50,000 per project. The fee will be due upon the issuance of the sales tax exemption certificate by the Zone Administrator, and a summary of construction materials costs must be provided to the Zone Administrator at the same time.
Payment must accompany the application when submitted.
