Wrong again - The line on the form instructs you to DO NOT LEAVE BLANK.

Or maybe they had to turn on the old heater for the first time this season and it just belched. Good grief, people. Lighten up. I was joking. BG

Waiting on a reply from the District as they examine where the magic bullet came from... No, I don't really believe this was staged. BG

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. If you are a homeowner, you know this chart has to come with a big caveat. Property taxes and home values can vary widely throughout a county, especially in those with large metropolitan areas. 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.
