House bill decreasing trailer tax, removing trade in cap, advances

From The Center Square – Illinois taxpayers with sticker shock from the $100 tax increase on the annual trailer tag implemented two years ago may soon get some relief.

A measure that drops the tax on utility trailers from $118 to $36 in exchange for a $5 increase in the fee for a vehicle title transfer to $155 is advancing at the statehouse with just one day left.

Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle said Sunday the trailer fee increasing from $18 to $118 as part of the capital construction bill Gov. J.B. Pritzker enacted in 2019 was a major concern for constituents. That bill also doubled the state’s gas tax and increased other taxes and fees.
