City of Peoria Sales Tax Rate


Hospitality Improvement Zone
City of Peoria Sales Tax Rate
Effective 7/1/09

Background

The Illinois Department of Revenue (IDR) sent an informational bulletin to ALL taxpayers located in the City of Peoria of a sales tax rate change for the City of Peoria on 7/1/09. It was for businesses located “Inside the Hospitality Improvement Zone Business District”.

The rate increase of 1% and the new combined rate is 9%, not for all taxpayers, ONLY FOR THE ADDRESSES LOCATED IN THE DISTRICT.

There is some confusion… “the rate increase is only for businesses located inside Hospitality Improvement Zone Business District”. The informational bulletin (bottom right corner) also tells the taxpayer to find out if the rate applies to their sales, to go to the “Tax Rate Finder” on their web site at tax.illinois.gov for a list of addresses.

If the business address is not one of the locations listed below, they are NOT subject to the new tax rate.

If the business address is one of the locations listed below, they must collect the additional tax and remit it to the Illinois Dept of Revenue.
