Illinois Among the 10 States with the Highest Wireless Tax Rate

Yet another tax where Illinois has one of the highest rates in the nation.

Illinoisans are no strangers to high taxes. The state has the second highest property tax rate, the fifth highest gas tax and the tenth highest sales tax in the country. 

So it should come as little surprise that Illinois has one of the highest wireless tax rates in the nation. How high is it?


Taxes are going to continue to be one of the major themes of the upcoming few weeks in Springfield as lawmakers face several important decisions on taxes.

Even if we threw them in jail their brainless voting bases would still reelect them.

Illinois is one of the top most corrupt states in the USA. I have two more years in this God forsaken state, then after my daughter finishes school, I'm out of here! My home may be paid off, but I still pay at least $500 a month for property taxes--and I live in the older section with a 55 year old house!!

Shameful! The audacity to want more is as bold as cat manure. They sell the lottery, lease the toll way, to their friends, all the while saying they need more money. This really stinks.

@David kraatz, ,what's wrong is you should not have to pay the unbelievable tax. I wonder how much our politicians are paying. I bet they got a sweetheart deal. Not once have they talked about reducing their pay or expenses.
