Logan County residents will have to pay $12,748,575 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 Sangamon Sun analysis of Illinois Department of Revenue data.

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

The city in Logan County that will be the most affected by Pritzker's proposal is Lincoln, with residents expected to pay an additional $7,510,713 in income taxes -- approximately $1,106 per person in the labor force. Lake Fork will pay only $32,680 more in comparison, the least among Logan County cities.

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