Just over a decade ago my family and I made the most gut wrenching decision of our lives. We left our home, Illinois.
It took us a full year to get over the move. At the time we didn't know if we were making the right decision.
In hindsight It was the best decision of our lives! We got out in the nick of time.
We have saved around 70K in those ten years in property taxes alone! Yes, that's 5,800 extra per year just for not living in Illinois!
The state is very near the point where people just don't have the money to pay those taxes.
A family member lives in a normal house, their property taxes this year is over 12K!!!!!!!!!!
My MIL house has a manufactured home (just a step up from trailer house) and her taxes are 6K! I'm just talking about property taxes,
add in sales tax, fees, costs, tolls. How can anyone survive there?
So the question is, Who will bail out Illinois when they do collapse?
Oh, and they will, it is coming......
