Effective July 1, 2023, retailers should resume collection of the state one-percent (1%) low rate on sales of groceries normally taxed at this rate. Public Act 102-0700 suspended the state one-percent (1%) low rate of sales and use tax on retail sales of groceries normally taxed at this rate from July 1, 2022, through June 30, 2023.
Starting July 1, Illinois will again collect a sales tax on groceries at a preferential rate of 1 percent, well below the statewide general sales tax rate of 6.25 percent.
