New Illinois Sales Tax Law

Lease You Can Do

The New Illinois Sales Tax Law Makes Leasing a Car More Affordable Than Ever

A change in the Illinois sales tax law, which took effect on January 1, 2015, reduces the cost of leasing a vehicle by as much as 50 percent or more. Here at INFINITI of Hoffman Estates, a premier Schaumburg area INFINITI dealer, this means that now drivers from throughout Chicagoland are looking at keeping significant amounts in their bank accounts when they lease one of our fine INFINITI vehicles. There is no better time than now to take advantage of this exciting change in the tax law, and get behind the wheel of the sophisticated luxury car you’ve always wanted today.

New Rules Will Make Leasing More Affordable

The way the sales tax law worked previously, lessees were required to pay taxes on the total purchase price of the vehicle they were leasing. For example taxes on a leased vehicle valued at $30,000 would have cost you $2,475 at 8.25 percent vehicle tax. With the new law, you now pay taxes only on the amount of your down payment and monthly lease rate. So if you were to pay $2,000 up front, at 8.25 percent your tax payment would be $165, and with a monthly lease payment of $300 you’d pay $24.75 a month in taxes, making the total amount of taxes paid $1,056, which is $1,419 less than if you had leased under the old law.

As vehicle leases have seen a 26 percent up swing over the past 5 years nationwide, the Chicago area has only experienced an increase of 14 percent. The changes provided by the new sales tax law are sure to have a significant effect on the number of Chicagoland drivers opting to lease a vehicle from here on out.
