Welcome to Illinois, where we will tax you to death!
(sorry no time for graphics right now)!
Be sure and read this article...here's a tidbit of it:
Munch on a handful of plain, dry-roasted peanuts for a snack and you are eating food taxed at 1 %. Buy the honey-roasted version, and you are eating candy, which is taxed at 6.25% at the new level.
And as always, I highly recommend the readers' comments below the article!
