Non-Home Rule Sales Tax Referendum
On the March 17, 2020 Presidential Primary Ballot, the residents of the Village of Libertyville voted to impose a local sales tax of 1%. The tax is equivalent to a penny per dollar on general merchandise. The local sales tax does NOT apply to medicines, titled goods, such as cars and trailers, and most groceries. As of July 1, 2020 the local sales tax will begin being collected on all applicable purchases. To review a summary of the sales tax rate change click here.
The Village requires the revenue from the local sales tax to offset a nearly $2,500,000 annual capital improvement deficiency for roads, sidewalks, streetlights, parking lots, parks, facilities, and technology. Furthermore, the Village is preparing to establish a stormwater utility in order to construct projects identified in the Master Stormwater Management Plan. A portion of the revenues from a local sales tax may be used to provide an initial funding source for the stormwater utility.
