And only $10K SALT, if I remember correctly, is now deductible from fed income tax. Yikes, sorry @Dee*Jayfrom the land of the 10.25%...
The combined sales tax rate for Chicago, IL is 10.25%. This is the total of state, county and city sales tax rates. The Illinois state sales tax rate is currently 6.25%. The Cook County sales tax rate is 1.75%.
Cook County: 1.75%
Special: 1% -- *special*? Oh it's *special* all right...
(If you think this is bad you should see how our property tax bills read.)
My youngest daughter was born on tax day. We always tell her there's no money left for gifts, lol.
