From the Files of "Duh...."
- For Illinois residents, there’s isn’t much good financial news.
In fact, it’s so bad, even Abraham Lincoln is feeling the effects of it, 150 years after his assassination.
And now, a new report from Wallet Hub rubs salt in your Tax Day wounds. The report shows Illinois residents have the highest state and local tax obligations, paying more than 2.5 times more than the cheapest states.
This comes on the heels of a report showing Illinois has the second-highest real estate taxes in the nation. The state also has one of the most unfair tax systems.
And like an abused spouse, Illinois voters keep coming back for more.
