2024 DOC maximum is $358.03

The maximum amount that Illinois dealers can charge in 2024 for documentary preparation fees is $358.03, the Illinois attorney general’s office announced Dec. 12.

The new maximum is a $10.77 increase over the 2023 maximum fee. As always, the DOC fee is taxable and must be substantiated upon request by the attorney general’s office.

The CATA is developing a poster about the DOC fee that dealer members can display. On the poster, the DOC fee amount is left blank for dealers to fill in; any amount up to the maximum allowed may be charged, but all customers should be charged the same amount. Systematically charging one group but not another — all males but no females, for instance — could bring charges of profiling.

Two copies of the poster will be mailed to dealers later this month. For limited additional copies, call the CATA at (630) 495-2282.

IMPORTANT: The new maximum fee cannot be charged before Jan. 1.
