Let's get this right. Under Gov Quinn, the largest income tax increase in the country (and now one of the highest in the middle class). Largest Corp tax increase in the country. 10-12% sales tax. Some of the countries highest property taxes getting increased! Tolls increased! So what do Illinoisian face: (1)5% income tax on middle class: Top 5 highest in the country on the middle class. Yes CA and other get to 10%+, however, these higher income. For example 10% is on individuals making $1 mil. Quinn's regime income tax increase was an assault on the IL middle class and small and mid-sized business community! (2) Sales Tax: Cook County is by far the largest in IL. The sales tax in IL is 10% (12% for prepared foods - restaurants!)! Plus Chicago has an addition tax! (3) Corporate Tax: The Quinn increase put us top 3 in the WORLD! (4) Gas Tax: We have the HIGHEST tax on gasoline in the country! (5) Utility Tax: Top 5 in the country. (6) Property Tax: We were top 5 previously, who knows maybe top 4! Not a good group. (7) Tolls: We had some of the highest tolls in the country. They are now raising them! (8) Fees: Some of highest in the country! This state SUCKS!!!
