Non-Home Rule Sales Tax Town Hall Meetings
On the March 17, 2020 Presidential Primary Ballot, the residents of the Village of Libertyville will have the opportunity to answer a question regarding imposing a non-home rule local sales tax of 1%. The tax is equivalent to a penny per dollar on general merchandise. The local sales tax would NOT apply to medicines, titled goods, such as cars and trailers, and most groceries. If approved by voters, the additional sales tax is projected to generate approximately $2,000,000 in new revenue annually after the repeal of the Places for Eating tax. On Thursday, January 30th and Wednesday, March 4th Town Hall meetings will be held at 7:00 p.m. at the Libertyville Civic Center to learn more about the Referendum. For further information click here.
