Why is there a Bloomington/Normal Use Tax?
Effective September 1, 1990, the State of Illinois changed the law as it applied to local sales taxes. From that point forward, the State began collecting the 0.75% sales tax on all purchases, with the exception of the sales tax applied to all titled transactions. This tax, according to state law, was to be collected locally and would apply only to the residents of cities that had previously applied the local sales tax.
