Any Chicagoans have an idea of what our sales tax will be?

Is it strictly based on residence and thus we are SCREWED at 9.5%? I thought I read something where they split the difference between residence and where you purchased it somehow.

For dumb stuff like this, I'm a rule bender. I would temporarily move & change the address on my license, then move back after registering the truck.

You could always form a Montana LLC and purchase it through the LLC and avoid sales tax altogether. Not that I’d know anything about that... I’ve heard there are more cars registered in MT than there are residents.

I'm accident prone, a bad liar, and have very bad luck.

If you know how to do that for like less than 2k, I'm impressed. But see my last post about why no... not a good idea.

Well if you want to save few bucks to lower your tax, register it in dupage county instead of cook.
