Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker and lawmakers passed modest tax relief that expires after the 2022 election. But 24 tax and fee hikes during Pritzker’s term will leave the average family $2,165 poorer thanks to higher taxes.

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker and lawmakers are touting a one-time, $556 tax break for the average family, but full disclosure should include the $2,721 more in taxes imposed by them during Pritzker’s term. Subtract the temporary tax break from the permanent tax increases and government under Pritzker will eat $2,165 more of the average family’s income.
