Illinois Enacts New Sales and Use Tax Exemption for Breast Pumps as of July 1, 2022

Recently enacted Public Act 102-700 exempts from sales and use tax breast pumps, collection and storage supplies, and breast pump kits as of July 1, 2022.

The Act defines a "breast pump" as a device that is electrically or manually controlled and is used to express milk from a human breast during lactation.

Breast pump collection and storage supplies include breast shields, breast pump tubes, breast pump valves, breast milk storage bags, and backflow protectors.

Breast pump collection and storage supplies do not include bottles and bottle caps, breast pump travel bags, breast pump cleaning supplies, nursing bras, bra pads, breast shells, and other similar products.

To qualify for the exemption, a breast pump kit must contain no more than a breast pump, collection and storage supplies, a rechargeable battery, a cooler, bottle stands, ice packs, and a carrying case. The kit must also be prepackaged as a breast pump kit by the manufacturer or distributor.
