When is my tax form and payment due if I purchase or lease a vehicle?

The normal process for applying for title and registration in Illinois requires that the applicable form, from one of the four tax forms listed below, is submitted along with the application for title and/or registration to the appropriate titling agency. The specific due date for timely filing of each form is as follows:

  • Form ST-556, Sales Tax Transaction Return, is due not later than 20 days after the date of delivery of the item sold;
  • Form ST-556-LSE, Transaction Return for Leases, is due not later than 20 days after the date of delivery of the item leased;
  • Form RUT-25, Use Tax Transaction Return, is due not later than 30 days after the date the item is brought into Illinois;
  • Form RUT-25-LSE, Use Tax Return for Lease Transactions, is due not later than 30 days after the date the item is brought into Illinois;
  • Form RUT-50, Vehicle Use Tax Transaction Return, is due within 30 days of the date the vehicle was purchased or acquired by gift or transfer; and
  • Form RUT-75, Aircraft/Watercraft Use Tax Transaction Return, is due no later than 30 days from the date of acquisition or the date the item is brought into Illinois, whichever is later.
