Grantsburg residents will have to pay $224,335 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 Southern Illinois News analysis of Illinois Department of Revenue data.

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

The city in Johnson County that will be the most affected by Pritzker's proposal is Vienna, with residents expected to pay an additional $1,399,587 in income taxes -- approximately $2,372 per person in the labor force. New Burnside will pay only $93,956 more -- approximately $1,917 per person in the labor force in comparison, the least among Johnson County cities.

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