Where You Live

The “Where you live” rows in the Tax Look-Up Table refer to the address where your vehicle will be registered, which is a critical factor in determining the sales tax collected on your purchase.

  • Chicago – You live within the city limits of Chicago.
  • Cook County – You live in Cook County but not in Chicago.
  • Collar County – You live in one of the following counties that border Cook:

    • DuPage
    • Lake
    • McHenry
    • Kane
    • Will
  • Beyond – You live in Illinois but outside of Cook County and the Collar Counties. Note that a few downstate Illinois communities also have special sales tax situations, and those are not covered in the table.
