Since January of 2015, new leasing laws went into effect in the state of Illinois. Previously, when a vehicle was leased, the driver had to pay tax on the entire cost of the vehicle, even though they weren't purchasing the vehicle. Now, the drivers will only play tax on monthly lease payments, plus any of the money due at the start of the lease. This translates into savings for the car shoppers of Lake Bluff and Chicago. Give us a call today (847) 457-1763 with any questions you may have.
