‘Todd Stroger sales tax’ increase all gone as of New Year’s Day but what the media leaves out is with all the new increases in taxes & fees in 2013 it's way worse than the Stroger tax increase!



Yes, as a matter of fact we are the Second City.

With the dawn of a new year, a lower sales tax rate in the region means Chicago no longer has the highest combined sales tax rate of any large city in the nation. Now it’s in second place. (It's all a fricken shell game)

As of Jan. 1, Cook County’s sales tax fell a quarter of a cent. In Chicago, that means the combined sales tax — meaning state, county, city and mass transit sales taxes — tacked on to most retail purchases, except groceries, dropped from 9.5 percent to 9.25 percent. That’s just below first-place Phoenix, where the rate is 9.3 percent, but above Los Angeles and New York, where rates are 9 percent and 8.875 percent, respectively, according to Chicago-based YETTER, a sales-tax consulting firm.

TIF districts ARE taxation without representation. They have been scrambling to cover up for the funds diverted by the TIF scam since the crash. None of the money collected in these districts goes towards police and fire. It is the exact amount missing from the pension funds. They will fuck us forever.

The reason the taxes in Chicago and Crook County are so high is because we are reaching that breaking point of more people taking than paying into the system. Chicago is already doomed and Crook County is not far behind.

9.25% BIG F'ing DEAL!!

Still not coming to downtown for anything and NOT buying anything in Cook County.

Drop all the parking taxes so people do not have to pay $36-$48 to park downtown.

Cut all the Board Members Salaries and benefits by 50%. Not THAT much money?

Make it a symbolic cut in the payroll - all board members take a 50% cut to set an example. Show some type of spending cuts.

Can't do it? Well, I can't drive in anymore and afford the Sheriff of Nottingham fees you have put up - from sales taxes to parking to gas prices and just overall aggravation.
