Improved Vehicle Tax Law


The New Illinois Sales Tax Law Makes Leasing a Vehicle a More Affordable Option

The new Illinois sales tax law, which went into effect January 1, 2015, is going to be great for Chicagoland drivers who are looking to lease a vehicle. Under this new law, the cost of leasing a car could be reduced by 50 percent or more. We here at Motor Werks Porsche in Barrington couldn’t be more thrilled with the opportunity to pass these substantial savings on to our valued customers. There has never been a better time than now to lease one of the exciting new Porsche vehicles featured at our Chicago area Porsche dealership.

Changes to the Sales Tax Law

Formerly when entering a car lease, the lessee had to pay taxes based upon the total purchase price of the vehicle. If the car was priced at $30,000 then the tax would have been $2,475 at 8.25 percent vehicle tax. The new law requires that the lessee pay taxes only on their downpayment and monthly lease payments. For example, if you were to pay $2,000 down you would have to pay a tax in the amount of $165. If your lease payments are $300 a month, then your tax is $24.75 a month. As this plays out across a 36 month lease, your total tax bill would be $1,056. That’s a savings to you of $1,419!
