      • It went from 3% to 5%, but now back to 3.75%. That was baked in as a safety. It's not a surprise that 3.75% isn't enough, it was never thought that it would be.

        That's a LIE.

        The dhimmicrats in Illinois SWORE ON ALL THINGS HOLY that the 5% temporary increase would fix EVERYTHING.

        And, predictably, they LIED and made things EVEN WORSE.

        Ooooooooooooooooooooh, Dhiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimmiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiicraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaats!!!!!!

        Chicago sales tax for downtown residents totals 10.25%....Cigarettes in Chicago run $12+ a pack.....plus 3 dozen other taxes special for Chicago residents:

        The difference in those tax rates is driven by the more than 30 different city-imposed taxes (and a host of other fees), as of October 2015, which Chicagoans must pay besides the property tax.

        Amusement tax (5 percent or 9 percent of charges for amusement)
        Amusement tax - subscribers to paid television programming (9 percent of television programming costs)
        Boat-mooring tax (7 percent docking or mooring fees)
        Bottled-water tax (5 cents per bottle)
        Chicago share of the state income tax (distributed by the state)
        Cigarette tax ($1.18 per pack)
        Electricity infrastructure maintenance fee (usage schedule starting with 0.53 cents per kilowatt hour)
        Electricity use tax (usage schedule starting with 0.61 cents per kilowatt hour)
        Emergency telephone system surcharge - landline ($3.90 per month)
        Emergency telephone system surcharge - wireless ($3.90 per month)
        Foreign fire-insurance tax (2 percent of taxable premiums)
        Fountain-soft-drink tax (9 percent of syrup price)
        Gas use tax (6.2 cents per therm on businesses that purchase gas from sellers not subject to either distributor or reseller occupation taxes)
        Ground-transportation tax (varies, including $78 per month for city cabs, $3 per day for noncity cabs)
        Home-rule retailers' occupation (sales) tax (1 percent on food and drugs; 2.25 percent on general items)
        Hotel-accommodations tax (5.58 percent of gross rental charge, includes municipal-level tax)
        Liquor tax ($0.29 per gallon of beer, $0.36 to $2.68 per gallon of liquor depending on alcohol content)
        Motor-vehicle lessor tax ($2.75 per vehicle per rental period)
        Nonretail transfer-of-motor-vehicles tax (based on schedule of age of vehicle, from $10 to $80)
        Occupation tax - natural-gas distributor and reseller (8 percent of receipts)
        Off-track-betting tax (1 percent of wagers plus $1 on off-track-betting admissions)
        Parking tax (22 percent for daily parking, 20 percent for daily parking on weekends, 20 percent valet parking)
        Personal-property-lease transaction tax (9 percent of receipts or charges)
        Personal-property replacement tax (distributed by state, 2.5 percent on corporate income, 1.5 percent on partnerships, trusts and S corporations)
        Real-property transfer tax ($5.25 per each $500 of transfer price)
        Restaurant tax (0.25 percent of retail price in addition to sales tax)
        Soft-drink tax (3 percent of price)
        Telecommunications tax (7 percent of receipts or charges)
        Tire fee ($1 for each new tire sold)
        Use tax for nontitled personal property (1 percent, except for first $2,500 each year)
        Use tax for titled personal property (1.25 percent)
        Vehicle fuel tax (5 cents per gallon)
        Wheel tax ($85.97 annually for small passenger automobile; $136.54 annually for large passenger vehicle)
        They all add up. In 2014, the city collected more than $1,280 per person in various nonproperty taxes and fees. That figure is almost double what Evanston, the second-highest taxing city in Illinois, collected in nonproperty taxes and fees, and four times the amount collected in Naperville.
