Do I owe tax if I rent merchandise under a rental purchase agreement from a rent-to-own business that does not collect Rental Purchase Agreement Use Tax from me?

Yes. Rental Purchase Agreement Use Tax not paid to a merchant shall be paid to the Department directly by any person using the rented merchandise in Illinois.

Submit Form ST-244, Rental Purchase Agreement Use Tax Return, to report and pay the Rental Purchase Agreement Use Tax. Illinois law requires Form ST-244 to be filed electronically, and the tax to be paid electronically. Use MyTax Illinois to file your Form ST-244 and pay any tax due.

If you have additional inquiries, you may submit them to the Questions, Comments, or Request form.
