It takes more to rank among the top 1% of earners in Illinois than in most other states.
The 56,000 taxpayers in the state who comprise the 1% earn about $91.8 billion cumulatively per year, or 19.2% of all money made in the state. Illinois’s wealthiest residents also pay a disproportionately high share of taxes, accounting for 36.2% of federal income taxes collected in the state.
