A quick look at property taxes and home values in Illinois

Property taxes and home values can vary widely throughout a county, especially in those with large metropolitan areas

From from Reboot Illinois:

The chart below contains average home values for all 102 counties in Illinois along with average property taxes paid countywide.

The school district in which you live will be the greatest factor in the amount of property tax you pay.

Despite these asterisks, the chart below gives a good thumbnail sketch of what it costs to live in various parts of a very diverse state.
