Is it Illegal to bring cigarettes into Illinois?

It is illegal to purchase cigarettes outside of Illinois for personal use or for use by friends, neighbors, or coworkers without paying Illinois Cigarette Use Tax. Smuggling is the illegal transportation of cigarettes between states, ranging from a small part-time operation to a large-scale business. Unauthorized transportation of cigarettes, whether casual or commercial smuggling, usually takes place across the borders of neighboring states.
