RG-61 Gas Use Tax Exemption Certificate
Step 1: Read this information first
If you purchase natural gas from outside of Illinois for use in Illinois and any description in Step 3 applies to you, you are exempt
from paying Gas Use Tax. You must provide your delivering supplier with this completed certificate as your proof that no Gas
Use Tax is due.
— If you use gas which is both exempt (e.g., gas used in the production of electric energy) and non-exempt (e.g.,gas used in
heating and general maintenance of the production facility, etc.) from Gas Use Tax, you must have separate accounts
for exempt and non-exempt purchases.
— If you have multiple accounts which are exempt from Gas Use Tax, you must complete a separate Form RG-61 for each
account unless the same exemption applies to all of the accounts. In this case, complete one Form RG-61 and list each
account subject to that exemption. Attach an additional sheet(s) if necessary.
— If any information you provide below changes, you must complete a new Form RG-61. If no changes are needed, you
should submit a new Form RG-61 every five years to keep records current.
If you have any questions, call us weekdays between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. at 217 782-6045.
