Effective June 1, 2016: The sales tax rate in the Village of Willowbrook is 7.00%. The State of Illinois receives sales tax receipts from retailers within the Willowbrook area and then remits the Village's 1% share on a monthly basis. Willowbrook does not assess a local sales tax, however businesses within the Village's Route 83/Plainfield Road Business District pay an additional 1% sales tax. Those tax revenues are restricted to expenditures benefiting the Business District only.
Without a property tax to fund Village services, sales tax is the largest revenue source for the Village and accounts for over 40% of General Fund revenues.
