Buying Gold and Silver in Chicago

Chicago is the largest city in the State of Illinois. In 1837, Chicago was incorporated as a city and made rapid progress in the mid-nineteenth century. Louis Joliet and Jacques Marquette were the first white men to have visited this region. John Kinzie is the first white settler in the Chicago region and is often known as the Father of Chicago. Chicago derives its name from the Algonquian word meaning “onion” or “skunk.”

Chicago is one of the major Great Lakes Ports and is the center of finance, commerce, technology, telecommunication, and transportation. The Globalization and World Cities Research Network has listed Chicago as an alpha global city in 2012. It ranked 7th in the world in the Global Cities Index in 2014. The world’s largest and most diversified economy is considered that of Chicago. Chicago is home to a variety of culture, art, and educational institutions. Chicago is popularly known as the Windy City. A major tourist destination, there are very popular places to see, such as the Art Institute of Chicago, Millennium Park, Michigan Avenue, and the Magnificent Mile, Navy Pier, Wrigley Field, Shakespeare Theater, Museum of Science and Industry, Field Museum of Natural History, and many more.

Some of the top precious metal dealers are located in the Chicago area, and one can take advantage of the sales tax exemption on bullion sales in Illinois while there. The State of Illinois exempts tax on all types of US and foreign legal tenders, medallions, and bullion. Only legal tenders from the Republic of South Africa are taxable with a 6.25% state sales tax and additional county or city taxes. Being an out of state retailer, Bullion Exchanges does not charge sales taxes on any purchases made by Illinois residents. However, it is always better to check with a tax professional before making any purchase, as we are no tax policy experts.
