Chicago, IL


Chicago and suburbs have highest taxes in the Nati - 6/12/2009
At 11% sales tax I believe that Cook County, IL. is the highest in the country. The cost of gasoline is bumped by this as well as the use of smog formulated fuel which is more expensive and lowers the mileage a vehicle gets by 10 to 25%. Property taxes which are a combination of county and state fees are at an all time high. Much higher than any other place in America. State income tax is reasonable compared with some other non-industrial states in the south, but doesn't help the overall buying power of the citizens. By adding up all the tax costs from all sectors, federal, state, county, and local taxes and other fees on auto and zoning; I believe that out of a median income of $60,000 a family is paying over half their income to theese taxes every year. It has been said that the fall of the Roman Empire was caused by the strangulation of it's people from crushing taxes.
