Why are services taxing so different than products in Illinois?

Overview

We switched tax codes from a product to a service and the rates we're seeing are very different suddenly.

Resolution

  • In Illinois per state law services source at the destination. This is very different than products which source at the origin.
  •  
  • This can result in very different tax results if the addresses have varying amounts of local jurisdictions.
