Hello, those who call Champaign County home.

Did you know your taxes are about to go up?

I got another “Informational Bulletin” from the Illinois Department of Revenue today, and it talks about the sales tax changes that are going to take place on January 1, 2010. For those of us in Champaign county, we get to look forward to a one percent increase in our sales tax, and the extra will go to “County School”. Now, I’m confident that we probably voted on this at some point in the past, and I’m confident that it is going to greatly increase the quality of education that the youngins are getting. But, if you are planning any big purchases, and you don’t care that much about the munchkins and their learning, you’d better get that buying done before the end of the year.
