Illinois Senate Gets Aggressive on Sales Tax Bill


In an aggressive move to pass a bill that will institute a 6 percent sales tax on self-storage and other services in the state, the Illinois Senate has amended House Bill 174 to include the same language as that in Senate Bill 750, which could not move out of the Senate and to the House in the current legislative session. If passed in the Senate, however, HB174 requires only concurrence by the House.
The Illinois Self Storage Association immediately launched a campaign last week urging self-storage operators in the state to contact their senators and representatives and ask them to vote “no” on HB174. The association is also asking operators to make a similar plea to all of their self-storage tenants, who will have to pay 6 percent tax on their units if either of the bills passes.

The ISSA can be reached at 217.528.5230.
