The Use Tax for Non-Titled Personal Property imposes a tax on the purchase of non-titled tangible personal property for use in Chicago from a retailer located outside Chicago.
NOTE: The city does not require retailers to collect and remit the use tax. However, retailers can voluntarily collect and remit the tax (using form 8403), and retain a commission equal to 5% of any tax remitted. Note that purchasers will still be required to pay the use tax directly to the Department of Revenue.
