Illinois Department of Revenue Posts Tax Rate Database

The Illinois Department of Revenue has posted on its website a database that provides rates for both state and local taxes. The database contains the rates for income, sales, excise, property, motor fuel, use, and gaming taxes as well as other miscellaneous taxes, fees, and surcharges for taxing districts in the state. The database specifies whether taxes are fixed rate or location-based rate. Legislation passed in 2011 required the creation of the database. The database can be viewed on the Department website here. (Tax Rate Database, Illinois Department of Revenue, December 30, 2011)
