What local taxes may be imposed in addition to Illinois sales tax?

In a sale at retail, the combined sales tax rate may include mass transit taxes, municipal and county home rule taxes, municipal non-home rule tax, county public safety tax, and various business district taxes among others. Tax rates are subject to change twice a year on January 1 and July 1. Use the Tax Rate Finder to find sales tax rates for specific locations in Illinois.  Note that the Tax Rate Finder only lists taxes that are collected by the Illinois Department of Revenue.

Also see page 2 of PIO-114, How Sales and Use Taxes are Distributed, for a list of locally imposed sales and use taxes administered by the Illinois Department of Revenue. NOTE: PIO-114 does not include Cannabis, Aviation, Rental, Chicago Soft Drink, MPEA Food and Beverage, Telecommunication, or Motor Fuel taxes.
