Bills filed to repeal trade-in cap, open Sunday sales

January 24, 2020
Legislation has been filed in Springfield to replace the $10,000 trade-in allowance limit, which was enacted this month, and to open dealerships to Sunday sales.
Both bills were filed Jan. 22. The state’s General Assembly convenes for the 2020 Spring Legislative Session on Jan. 28.
Under Senate Bill 2481, increasing the sales tax owed on private vehicle transactions would collect the $45 million a year that officials say the trade-in cap will raise. Taxes dues on private sales have not been adjusted in decades. The legislation was was introduced by Democratic Sen. Antonio Muñoz of Chicago.
House Bill 4212, introduced by Illinois Rep. Yehiel "Mark" Kalish, D-Skokie, would repeal Section 5-106 of the Illinois Vehicle Code, which prohibits the retail sale of vehicles on Sundays.
Legislation to open dealerships to sales on Sundays has been introduced in Springfield every spring since 2014.
