Yes. Grats here in Cook County.
Really good if you enjoy paying for the poor to enjoy a "sustainable" quality of living.
No wonder they drag them behind trucks.
In unrelated news, Amazon.com stock almost doubled today, with a curious influx of orders being sent to Cook County, Ill.
I'm glad socialism is alive and well. Enjoy the taxes folks
Love how the answer to everything is just raise taxes.
These are the dumbasses who laugh at Laffer. In 20 years Chicago will be Detroit.
How high will Obama want to jack up the tax rate?
Boys and girls, you have just looked into a crystal ball. Keep thinking "hope & change" elect the coon and this is what we're in for.
Fucking socialist talking points. I hope a tidal wave of Sickle Cells fall all over Cook County. :hamm:
And all hope that Chicago doesn't follow New York's lead in making its residents pay the sales tax even if the sale was done online. There is talk in NY about forcing the NY sales tax on NY residents even if they bought items online and out of state.
People people people.... how do you expect the gov't to pay for its excesses? You wouldn't want to drive a 5yr old car, so why should Mayor Daley?
These are the same people responsible for making Obama think he can be president.
Sorry Dead, but you're in a city filled with cunts. Fuck Chicago in it's socialist fuckhole.
No sales tax here.... and no ninjas either... win win.
I remember my bassist going into a Chicago suburb store like 5 years ago and walking out without her cigarettes. So of course I asked why she didn't get them. I couldn't believe when she told me because they were like $7 a pack, back then.
Fuck that place.
This is what you get for allowing the Daley's to run the show since the 50's.
I'm still trying to figure out how they plan on enforcing that. So far, it's just asking on your income taxes if you made any online purchases, so of course everybody says no. Try proving that I did.
glad i moved to will county. the casinos pay my "stupid" taxes.
Shit the taxes in the whole state stink. We were thinking about moving up there (not Chicago proper, but like Glencoe area) and the property tax alone is fucking awful.
you do know thats in cook county right? north of the city is the big moneyville everything costs alot.
They just can't keep their fucking hands off our money.
Yea, we had also looked near Elgin/ St. Charles area, but looks like there were a lot of Mexicans taking over the area....and that's why we want to get out of Texas. Well, that and the football here sucks.
I always say that yes, I did make online purchases. In this day of Big Brother, I'm paranoid that the comptroller or someone else in Albany will start looking into our purchase records and those who said no will get screwed. You can either hold on to your receipts and give them an exact amount of what would be owed, or the other way is to go by a chart which is based on your federal gross or federal taxable (I forget which). When I consider the total amount I purchase throughout the course of the year, the $35 or so that I have to pay is less than I'd pay if I had to pay sales tax at time of purchase. I hate giving NYS any more than they already get from me, but it's worth it in the long run...I can sleep at night and not have nightmares that I'm going to be hauled off to jail in the middle of the night.
Just out of curiosity, is it saying that if you traveled to say PA and bought a stereo, NY will make you pay NY sales tax on that? Or am I just reading this sentence wrong, and you're actually talking about out of state online purchases?
Good thing I live next door to tax free NH
Another fine example of a political machine run amok and with no accountability.
