Downers Grove residents will have to pay $70,441,393 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 DuPage Policy Journal analysis of Illinois Department of Revenue data.

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

The city in DuPage County that will be the most affected by Pritzker's proposal is Naperville, with residents expected to pay an additional $170,061,541 in income taxes -- approximately $2,160 per person in the labor force. Eola will pay only $58,847 more in comparison, the least among DuPage County cities.

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