Now that Prickwinkle awarded some raises they'll need way more layoffs. I guess she'll sue the people next.

That's probably falling right into her hands, a bunch of people will get laid off or they will have to agree to a real-estate tax increase which is what she wanted in the first place.

I bought four cases of soda and some lemonade for a party today. I found two new stores just outside Cook County that'll be getting my money from now on. On top of that, I bought some other things I needed too. Cook County really screwed the pooch this time.
TRUMP 2016!

Take that Toni. You have just made Crook County revenue decrease as you have forced us to find a more affordable way to live and that way is to deny you your stupid tax.

USDA regrets to inform Crook County that, since the tax provision levies a tax on federal assistance dollars (refunds later, but at one point takes the tax), that it's illegal and now the entire friggin State of Illinois is at risk of losing $86M in federal grants because of Taxwinkletoes.

Cook County is laughable if not downright stupid.......
Raise taxes on everything to meet budgets, taxes are based on population in Cook County.
People leave Cook Count every year in droves........leaving the population less each year.
Whine n cry that the schools have less stud nuts each year so the allotment of funds is less, boo hoo!
Raise more taxes including property taxes again, but there are less residents there to pay those taxes.
Can't figure out why we aren't taking in the amounts through our projections, so now we are shorts funds.
More people leave the next year as you raise taxes or create new ones based on the number of people in Cook County three years ago!
Then you fall flat again on your projections and can't understand why, so you raise more taxes...........

Unless someone burns down the house (or takes out the toilets) someone is still paying the real-estate taxes,  (The OPTIMAL tax) 

The next step would be to introduce an Employers Head Tax like what Chicago repealed in 2012 for the county, so even if you move out at least your employer would be contributing more. 

 

The key is just finding the right target of people to discriminate (tax) against.  "First they came for the jews...." 

Obviously that statement has nothing to do with religion just identifying the example on how to pick people off and eventually tax the ... out of everyone.

Crook County will do anything to enrich cronies, no matter how ridiculous it is.

I noticed that effective July 1 Jackson County has added a 1% school tax to the sales tax rate. Does Cook County have a county school sales tax?

More hot water for Preckwinkle's pop tax

http://www.chicagobu...winkles-pop-tax

Cook County is in hot water with yet another government agency over its pop tax, this time the Illinois Liquor Control Commission.

In a letter to Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle, the commission wrote that even though the tax on sweetened beverages excludes alcohol, many of the wholesalers to which it applies distribute both kinds of products and therefore have to deal with the tax complications of the county's new levy. As a result, it "may lead to practices that violate the Illinois Liquor Control Act."

It should be fun for bar tenders to keep track of the tax when making mixed drinks.

Looks like Philly tried the soda tax thing and didn't get the expected results either:  http://freebeacon.co...expensive-beer/
