IADA members came up big again with their support and grassroots participation in the legislative process. The General Assembly passed several IADA-promoted bills during the 2021 Legislative Session, and each has now been signed by the Governor.
Highlights include restoration of the full motor vehicle trade-in sales tax credit, increased compensation for motor vehicle warranty and recall repairs, extension of the driveaway permit to 90 days, a reduced-fee dealer title for titles with no reassignment areas, and protection from manufacturer pressure to sell manufacturer-mandated secondary product. IADA was also able to defeat several legislative proposals that would have increased dealer costs and created additional regulatory burdens.
Participating in our Association program goes a long way toward supporting all our efforts. Our IADA Board of Directors and staff want to offer a special thanks for your partnership in our Association CVR program and all our IADA programs and efforts. We are confident that IADA-CVR is the highest quality process in Illinois for our dealers. CVR maintained its full staff during last year’s pandemic economy and are now looking to increase their coverage even more. CVR already has the best combination of in-person, on-the-ground support, and training staff in the industry and they are looking to enhance this even further. They’ve partnered with the top 50-state solution provider, ATC, to provide a seamless and accurate out-of-state title and registration experience. Through integration with ATC’s platform, CVR’s customers can look forward to the convenience of accurate fee calculations for all 50 states and expedited processing of cross-border and out-of-state title and registration transactions. ATC has come through the pandemic stronger, and built the people, processes, and technology to scale out-of-state titling and registration services for all our members. The Chicago Auto Trade Association (CATA) also endorses our CVR program, so you can be assured that we are united in our efforts to best serve our Illinois dealership industry.
Providing the highest quality service and keeping our members enrolled is a primary goal of ours. We will continually strive to differentiate our programs from others and never take your trust and partnership for granted.
