Petition for Restaurants & Bars That Exceed the $75K Sales Tax Bill Threshold

UPDATE:  The Hospitality Association of Chicago is circulating a petition on behalf of restaurants and bars that exceed the $75K threshold for sales tax bill from 2019.  Many of our businesses do not qualify for this sales tax break and we are asking bars and restaurants to sign this petition if you fall in this category for medium sized Chicago businesses doing more than $750k in sales annually.
