Taxes and Corruption: Illinois loses population for 6th straight year
We have a friend in the state of Illinois. Chicago in fact. He laments the longstanding corruption and the ever higher taxes imposed by the city of Chicago and state of Illinois. He’d leave but no one will buy his house. He feels trapped.
Others who have more options have already left.
(From The Chicago Tribune)
…domestically, more people left Illinois for another state than the reverse, causing a loss of about 8.3 people per 1,000. That rate was the fourth worst for any state in 2019, behind New York, Hawaii and Alaska.
