Property taxes in Cook County are due today, serving as a reminder that JB Pritzker is the Porcelain Prince of Tax Avoidance.
Pritzker is running on a promise to raise taxes, and won’t say how high they would go. No concern to him though, because Pritzker won’t be paying his fair share anyway. Instead, he’ll have his house reclassified to lower his property taxes by hundreds of thousands of dollars forcing low and middle-income families to pay more.
Pritzker is a tax cheat pushing tax hikes, but between the offshore accounts and his insider connections with Mike Madigan, tax hikes don’t matter to him.
