OPINION: Dismayed at high Illinois taxes


Dear Editor,
Gov. Pritzker currently has a TV commercial promoting a so called “fair tax” that would not affect the average Illinoian. Too late... he already doubled our taxes.
I just filed my taxes. The good news: My income went up in 2018 and my federal taxes went down. The bad news: My State of Illinois taxes went way up. I had to pay in almost four times more than I did the previous year.
I find the philosophy of taxing yourself into prosperity unbelievable. It is no wonder those that can afford to are leaving Illinois.
