Sales Tax

Sales Tax Increase

In order to keep up with growing fixed costs in services such as police protection, road repair, 
and snow removal, the Village Board voted to increase our portion of the sales tax by 0.5% 
beginning on July 1, 2020. This will bring the current general sales tax rate to 7.5%.

This new tax rate will be available on the State of Illinois tax website at
See the  Village of Lake Barrington tax rate finder sheet here.

The Illinois Department of Revenue will mail out a letter only to taxpayers that file paper 
returns. For any taxpayer filing electronically, the return will be prefilled with the new tax rate starting
July 1, 2020.
