The sales tax rate for the State of Illinois is 6.25%. Why was I charged with 10.25% sales tax rate?

Sales tax in Illinois is determined by the location where the order is processed, not where the buyer is located. 

All orders are processed from our headquarters in Chicago. The Chicago sales tax rate is 10.25%. This includes State 6.25%, County 1.75%, City 1.25% and Special 1%. Therefore, all Illinois orders are charged Chicago’s sales tax rate.
