Saint Charles residents will have to pay $82,885,219 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 Kane County Reporter analysis of Illinois Department of Revenue data.

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

The city in Kane County that will be the most affected by Pritzker's proposal is Saint Charles, with residents expected to pay an additional $82,885,219 in income taxes. Mooseheart will pay only $48,449 more in comparison, the least among Kane County cities.
