Looking to Trade-In Your Vehicle for a Newer Model? Do it Before January 1st, 2020 to Save Money!

It's no secret that Illinois is making some tax law changes starting January 1st, 2020, but what does that mean for you and your automotive journey? As it turns out, it could mean hundreds of dollars! Currently, when you trade in your vehicle, the entire value of your trade-in is reduced from the price of the new vehicle you're purchasing and you're only taxed on the remaining balance. Under the new law, Illinois will only deduct up to $10,000 of your trade-in value from the taxable amount on the new vehicle. Meaning, depending on the value of your trade-in, you could end up paying quite a bit more come January 2020. See a quick break down below:
