What a rip-off: Illinois deduction is $2000, federal is $7800.

So I get a standard deduction of $7800 from the federal government, and a standard deduction (called a personal exemption) of $2000 from the state government.

Come on Illinois!

Stop taxing low-income workers! We have got to raise the Illinois standard deduction. And I have got to get to the post office in the next 80 minutes. . . . .
