Ford County residents will have to pay $7,195,932 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 Chambana Sun analysis of Illinois Department of Revenue data.

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

The city in Ford County that will be the most affected by Pritzker's proposal is Gibson City, with residents expected to pay an additional $2,721,091 in income taxes -- approximately $1,694 per person in the labor force. Elliott will pay only $125,141 more -- approximately $941 per person in the labor force in comparison, the least among Ford County cities.

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