License plate fee may rise by $20
March 17, 2009 6:06 AM
Gov. Pat Quinn is expected to propose in his budget address Wednesday that annual automobile license plate sticker fees increase by $20 a year from the current $78, the Sun-Times is reporting.
The governor also intends to raise cigarette taxes up to $1 over two years, which would double the existing 98-cent-a-pack state tax, the newspaper said.
The Tribune earlier reported that the governor is considering raising the state income tax from 3 percent to as much as 4.5 percent.
Oh Come On $98 dollars. Remember when Gov. Ryan jumped the sticker fee from $48 to $78 that was bullshit increasing it $30 dollars. OK so now a three car home has to pay $294 but if they live in the city now we have to have city stickers for the 3 cars because for some reason the city makes you pay $75 & up per car for what !@#@
519 extra dollars a year for a family with 3 vehicles
