Title:Illinois Government Research no. 51 1980: Property Taxes in Illinois
Author(s):Heins, A. James
Subject(s):Illinois government
State government
Abstract:Until the turn of this century, almost all of the revenue of the state as well as local governments was derived from the property tax. Since 1900, however, the state has turned increasingly to other forms of taxation. In fact, in 1943 state government made its last property tax levy, and for the last forty-five years sales and income taxes have financed the rapid expansion of state government spending. Local government units continue to have to rely, at least in part, on this form of taxation. The purpose of this study is to analyze changes in the level and distribution of property taxes in Illinois from 1940 to 1977. It will show the changing dependence on property taxes by the various units of local government and relate those changes to the personal income of those units as well as to other social and economic attributes.
