Illinois: Car-Sharing Supporters Say New Regulations Would Triple Tax Users

Sponsors and proponents of a bill to regulate peer-to-peer car sharing companies like San Francisco-based Turo said Tuesday they have the votes to override Gov. Bruce Rauner’s amendatory veto of the legislation, which would require Turo and competitors to pay state and local taxes on rental transactions and would mandate more safety regulations.

Advocates for the bill are likely to call it for a vote Wednesday in the Senate, and eventually the House if the legislation is passed with the necessary three-fifths majority in the upper chamber. The bill, SB 2641, passed in late May with 34 votes in the Senate and 78 votes in the House.
