Morris residents will have to pay $15,612,464 more in state income taxes if Gov. J.B. Pritzker's proposed tax hike is to generate the $10.3 billion in additional tax revenue that he has promised, according to a Grundy Reporter analysis of Illinois Department of Revenue data.

Pritzker claims the additional tax revenue will "eliminate the budget deficit."

The city in Grundy County that will be the most affected by Pritzker's proposal is Morris, with residents expected to pay an additional $15,612,464 in income taxes -- approximately $2,262 per person in the labor force. Kinsman will pay only $94,038 more -- approximately $2,090 per person in the labor force in comparison, the least among Grundy County cities.

The following table shows how other cities in Grundy County are affected.
