It took long enough, but Illinois wage earners will start seeing the extra two percent taken out of their checks this month.
At the same time the Democratic Party’s income tax hike went into effect two years ago, the Feds cut the Social Security tax by two points.

Now with the reinstatement of the Federal payroll tax, Illinois employees might just notice the 67% state income tax of two years ago.
Then, again, maybe they won’t.
