Hello,

 

The following law went into effect in the state of Illinois in July 2022. Does this apply to e-commerce retailers too?

If so, how should I update the sales tax rate in Shopify?

  • Grocery Tax Suspension Required Statement/Sign Effective July 1, 2022, through June 30, 2023, Public Act 102-0700 requires retailers to notify customers of the suspension of the state one-percent (1%) low rate of sales and use tax on retail sales of groceries. For retailers that cannot include the required statement on their cash register tape, receipt, invoice or sales ticket issued to customers, a clearly visible sign must be posted. The Department is providing a printable image of the sign.

Hi @ironclad

We do have a little information on Illinois state taxes, and it is possible to manage your taxes in your store admin.

However, when it comes to tax liability, we recommend that you consult with a tax expert or local tax authority to make sure you are meeting your obligations.

Are you selling groceries? And how is your set-up going otherwise? How was Black Friday/Cyber Monday for your sales?
