Wow, Chicago's is complex, too. From Wikipedia: The city of Chicago has the highest total sales tax of all major U.S. cities.[37] It is also one of the most complex. 10.25% is levied on all non-perishable goods purchased, while 2% is levied on qualifying food, drugs, medicines and medical appliances.[37] The Illinois Department of Revenue collects a 3% Chicago Soft Drink Tax and a 1% Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority (MPEA) "Food and Beverage Tax", on prepared food and beverage purchases in the downtown area (These "downtown" boundaries are: Surf Street on the north, Ashland Avenue on the west, Stevenson Expressway (I-55) on the south, & Lake Michigan on the east. Furthermore, O'Hare and Midway airports also fall under the 1% MPEA tax district).[38] In addition, the Chicago Department of Revenue collects additional sales taxes on items such as fountain drinks, bottled water, liquor, and cigarettes. California has 7.25% statewide, 8.25% in L.A. County (higher in some cities). Voters just added 0.5% for a package of transit measures, and the Governor wants to add another 1.5%. Total of 10.25% Also from Wikipedia, about state income tax rates: As of 2007, the highest rate of state income tax is that of California, with a maximum rate of 10.3%. Of those states which impose an income tax, the lowest maximum rate is that of Illinois, which levies a flat tax of 3%. I am already beginning to do more of my shopping online, out-of-state.

The Governator says legislators should "get off of their rigid ideologies", but all the Dems will consider is raising taxes. The sales tax and income taxes are already among the highest in the country, doesn't this sound a bit like a feudal state? Just keep squeezing the peasants.... People already can't afford to live here.

No, no, no...TI is GOING to jail, he hasn't been there yet! ;) I think his year long sentence starts in March or something. I thought it was hilarious when Palin was speaking for the Republician candidate yesterday and said this election was for "Alaska". Um, no it is for who is going to represent the people of Georgia! She is quite awkward with out the McCain speech writers helping her out.
