Taxes on a new camaro?

If you dont mind me asking, is anyone from IL. that picked up a new SS, what were taxes? I am going to be looking at used 2010 SS's for about 31,00-32,000 and I have know I dea how much more it will actually be! How were the dealers with pricing, for a 32,000$ car I hope these guys will work with me so the taxes dont jack the price up much.

cook county charges 7.25% sales tax on vehicle purchases
If you live outside Cook county and purchase in Cook county (but in IL), they will charge you 0.25% tax on top of your county's tax rate.
Lake is 7.0%
Will is 7.0%

looks like you get a lucky break in Plainfield depending upon the county you live in...

Quote:
Sales Taxes (retailers' and service occupation taxes)
General merchandise 8.250%
Qualifying food and drugs 1.000%
Vehicle(ST-556) 6.250% (dealer purchase)

If the vehicle or trailer is titled and registered to an out-of-state location, you (the dealer) may be required to collect tax. Refer to "Information for Vehicle Dealers" on the Welcome Page.


Use Taxes (use and service use taxes)
General merchandise 6.250%
Qualifying food and drugs 1.000%
Vehicle (RUT-25) 6.250%
use this link https://www.revenue.state.il.us/app/trii/ to see what you'll pay depending upon which county you live in (I think cook county is the only county that charges an extra 0.25% on top of your local tax rate).

That sh*t blows. Move to NC, 3% sales tax. Trade in, and only pay the 3% on the net difference to boot

The $300 cap in SC is true, but I've heard it may soon be a thing of the past.

Yea, unless your buying something with a gas guzzler tax, its capped at 300.00, then they get you when you renew your tag the next year. My renewal property tax was 801.00 this year.

Buy from an individual. Get two bills of sale. One that is left blank and put you paid 24,950. Illinois sales tax on vehicles under 25k is 1000 dollars. 25-30k is 1250 and over 30k is 1500 dollars. (Private sellers only) I did this and the DMV told me that if they value the car more than 24950, they will send me a letter for fair market value taxes. I am the third owner of my immaculate 2SS RS with 6500 miles; meaning I am the third person to pay taxes on this car. Illinois is making out like a bandit from my bandit (I named my car black bandit LOL).

Where are you guys hearing that SC is changing the $300 sales tax cap.

The whole point is because we are taxed on cars every year here... basically that would be double taxation because they technically call it "property" tax.

Knowing this state's government I am sure the plan is to keep both taxes.

Well then I guess IL isn't that bad then. We only pay a $99/yr registration fee no matter the value of your car. So I guess we pay most of our taxes on the front end as opposed to the rear, year after year. So in the long run you're rewarded for keeping your car for a long time I guess.

Taxes are determined on where you live. If you live in an area with 8% sales tax, then you'll be paying that in taxes. Other fees are usually fixed, so add up to $500 hundred bucks to your taxes to cover the rest depending on the dealership and locality.

so you lied about how much you paid for your car, so you could pay less taxes

GOOD THING THAT ISN'T ILLEGAL OR ANYTHING!

on another note, the back of your title will say the price the car is sold for.

I paid 6% state sales taxe on my car, since i live in PA.

Technically it's not double taxation, your not paying sales tax twice. Your simply paying two separate taxes. In NC we pay 3% sales tax at time of purchase and every year we pay property tax, fire tax, and EMS tax (if you live in a city you also pay a city tax) on each vehicle.

I paid 8% so just shy of $3K, like $2,978 plus another $125 or so for registration.
