Most of DuPage to see tax drop

April 22, 2016
Dealerships whose properties are served by the DuPage Water Commission will collect a quarter-cent less sales tax beginning June 1, when the Commission becomes a self-sustaining utility. The 0.25 percent reduction is projected to save consumers $33 million annually.
The Commission’s territory includes most of the municipalities in DuPage County plus slivers in Cook and Will counties.
Under Illinois Public Act 96-1389, which took effect years ago, the Commission’s taxing authority was to cease June 1, 2016, unless voters approved a referendum allowing it to continue imposing a sales tax. They didn’t.
