    Quoted from Viggin900:

    City not state tax! Duh. Tell me what Chicago is compared to Boone county KY please.

    Chicago has no income tax and many pay less than $6K for property tax in the city, I speak from experience. If you are talking about sales tax for Chicago it is 10.25% which is a total of state, county and city sales tax rates. All residents of Illinois, including Chicago residents, are subject to State and Federal income taxes, the Illinois income tax is a flat tax.

    I don't know the specifics of anyone's situation, income, residence, etc. but I have lived in Michigan and can say the total cost of living was not night and day.

    Quoted from chuckwurt:

    Cook county appears to charge income tax though. 5% per google machine.

    You don't pay both county and state income tax, just one IL State Income Tax. And maybe where you are seeing it they are showing a bit higher than the state due to income or such, so it has been referenced. I am in Cook County (Chicago) and pay less than 5% so I guess it is all relative, like pinball prices!
