According to the most recent tax data comparable across all states, Illinoisans face the fourth-highest overall tax burden in the nation. Illinois’ property taxes rank third-highest in the nation, and are now likely the highest in the nation due to the $543 million property-tax hike Chicago’s City Council passed in 2015. Illinois’ combined state and local sales-tax rate is the seventh-highest in the U.S. And Illinois’ individual and corporate income taxes are the 10th-highest and fourth-highest in the nation, respectively.
