Cook County residents will have to pay $2,147,483,647 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 Chicago City Wire analysis of Illinois Department of Revenue data.

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

The city in Cook County that will be the most affected by Pritzker's proposal is Chicago, with residents expected to pay an additional $2,147,483,647 in income taxes -- approximately $1,517 per person in the labor force. Hines will pay only $129,755 more in comparison, the least among Cook County cities.

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