ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Illinoisans will have to pay more in taxes this year, but not as much as they will next year.

Illinois Department of Revenue spokesman Terry Horstman says people will pay a “blended” rate this year.

“The blended rate is what the department of revenue suggests that individuals utilize, it’s 4.35 and that’s simply based on the number of days in the taxable year under the former date, and the number of days under the new rate,” he says.

The state’s personal income tax was 3.75 percent until July 1st, that’s when the newly passed income tax increase kicked in, putting the rate at 4.95 percent.
