Grocery Tax Suspension and Back-to-School State Sales Tax Holiday

Under the Illinois Family Relief Plan (Public Act 102-700) passed by the Illinois House and Senate, temporary reductions in taxes were enacted with regard to groceries (effective July 1, 2022, – June 30, 2023) and back-to-school items (effective August 5, 2022, – August 14, 2022). Resources pertaining to these temporary tax reductions may be found below.

Leveling the Playing Field

Public Acts 101-31 and 101-604 amended the Retailers’ Occupation Tax and enacted the Leveling the Playing Field for Illinois Retail Act to implement a series of structural changes to Illinois’s sales tax laws. The changes are designed to level the playing field between Illinois-based retailers and remote retailers by imposing state and local retailers’ occupation taxes on Illinois retailers and remote retailers alike.
