Lease You Can Do

The New Illinois Sales Tax Law Means Lower Car Leases for Schaumburg Area Drivers

Thanks to the new Illinois sales tax law that took effect January 1, 2015, drivers in and around Schaumburg can look forward to saving hundreds of dollars when leasing a car. These changes in the tax law are pretty spectacular, and all of us here at Mercedes-Benz of Hoffman Estates are just as thrilled as you are. We’re gearing up in anticipation of Chicagoland drivers eager to take advantage of the terrific savings they’ll receive when leasing one of our world-class Mercedes-Benz vehicles.

You’ll Get More Car for Less Money

With the old sales tax law, anyone leasing a vehicle was taxed on the total capitalized cost of the vehicle up-front. This meant that on a vehicle priced at $30,000, you would have to pay 8.25 percent of that cost in taxes, which would total $2,475. If you were to lease that same vehicle now under the new sales tax law you would pay the 8.25 percent tax on the downpayment only, and 8.25 percent on each monthly lease payment. So, for example, if your downpayment was $2,000, the tax on that would be $165, and with monthly lease payments at $300 a month you’d pay only $24.75 each month in taxes. Your total tax cost over a 36 month lease would be $1,056, which represents a savings of $1,419!
