Bureau County residents will have to pay $18,743,769 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 Peoria Standard analysis of Illinois Department of Revenue data.

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

The city in Bureau County that will be the most affected by Pritzker's proposal is Princeton, with residents expected to pay an additional $6,441,314 in income taxes -- approximately $1,595 per person in the labor force. Van Orin will pay only $37,515 more in comparison, the least among Bureau County cities.

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