The new Illinois Senate Bill 690 tax law that goes into effect in 2020 significantly lowers the allowable trade-in tax credit for Illinois residents.*

There is a considerable financial advantage to trading in a vehicle at McLaren Chicago prior to the implementation of the new Illinois Senate Bill 690 tax law on January 1, 2020.*

Trading in a vehicle is a great way to reduce the cost of an exotic McLaren supercar at McLaren Chicago. However, with the passage of the new Illinois Senate Bill 690 tax law*, the tax credit that Illinois residents are allowed for trade-in vehicles will be significantly lowered. As of now, Illinois doesn’t collect any sales tax on trade-in vehicles. However, with the signing of the new tax law by Governor J.B. Pritzker, this all changes. Starting on January 1, 2020, an Illinois resident that trades in a car that has a value of more than $10,000 will be charged for sales and local taxes for any amount that’s above the $10,000 tax credit.

There is a considerable financial advantage to trading in a vehicle before 2020. The price of a new 2020 McLaren 720S Spider is $386,720. Before January 1, 2020, an Illinois resident could apply a trade-in tax credit of $200,000, resulting in a taxable value of $186,720 and a sales tax of $17,738.40. However, starting on January 1, 2020, the trade-in tax credit would only be $10,000, resulting in a taxable value of $376,720 and a sales tax of $35,788.40. This is a difference of $18,050.**

When trading in a vehicle at McLaren Chicago, automotive shoppers have an enticing selection of McLaren models to choose from at the dealership.
