Illinois has higher property taxes than every state with no income tax

Mar 06, 2017

Illinois’ extraordinarily high property taxes are a symptom of a serious problem: too much spending that local governments cannot control.

But some claim Illinois’ high property taxes (and sales taxes) are the result of the state having a lower-than-average income tax. But that’s not true.

Illinois’ property taxes are higher than the property taxes in every state that has no income tax at all. Clearly, these states and many others are able to keep their property taxes low even without income tax revenues. Illinois property taxes are nearly triple those in neighboring Indiana, which also has a low, flat income tax rate.
