Taxes Skyrocket Across Aurora, Illinois



Shockwaves are spreading for taxpayers across Aurora as tax bills arrive that have skyrocketed for every taxing body.

For the City of Aurora, taxes have reached historic levels, the highest ever, thanks to the wild spending, debt and waste by corrupt Mayor Tom Weisner.

How bad is it?  Aurora residents are paying almost THREE TIMES HIGHER tax rates than residents in Naperville.

Aurora's tax rate is $2.27 per $100 of EAV
-------------------------------------------------------
Naperville's tax rate is 77 cents per $100 of EAV

Many taxpayers say their bill increased from hundreds to thousands from last years, even as their assessed property values dropped.

Alderman Rick Lawrence, who had warned about this problem coming, said his own tax bill increased by thousands compared to 2011 and said that the combination of decreasing property values and increasing taxes is going to cause investment and the taxpayers that pay the bills to leave.

Another viewer noted said "the mayor and his rubber-stamps on the city council lied to us these past few months, claiming they are 'holding the line' on taxes while they are stabbing us with massive increases.  Anyone who voted for those clowns should be the ones to pay for all this."

The massive tax increase includes everything from the corrupt library to the useless township entities.

Congratulations Tom Weisner, you've made Aurora 'second to none' for corruption, wild spending, waste and taxes.  Way to go, your legacy will be worse than Daley's parking meter fiasco.

Hey Rick, Your always talking up Naperville. Why don't you just move there? Wouldn't that be easier than running this blog and constantly bashing Aurora. If you think Naperville is better than MOVE THERE!!! You can skew the numbers how ever you want, but for a house of the same size Auroras property taxes are going to be lower than Naperville 9 times out of 10.

Uhhh... No 10:23. I don't care if it's Rick L. writing this crap or not. The fact is my tax bill continues to go up every year. $1000.00 this year alone. My property value has plummeted in the last 5 years. Given these rates it's a lose lose situation. If the market ever comes back you know they will never lower the rate I'll be taxed out of my home. I'm looking to get out.

Wow just opened mine. I'm paying almost $11,000 on a house that's value at around 325,000. I should have stayed where I was at. There is definitely no value added to moving into Aurora.

My fair cash value is about $50,000 higher than what the house will sell for!

Funny, MY property tax bill is hundreds of dollars LOWER this year.

Far West Side and mine only went up $229.20. I am curious to know where the original poster lives because I too live in West Aurora School Dist. as well as pay into Fox Valley Park Dist and the amounts are WAY far off. Really 10K for schools? Seems odd to me.

My tax bill went down $800.00 and my fair cash value went up 2,000.00 and I live on the East Side.

The East Aurora School District lowered the tax rate this year.

My tax rate went up, but I live in Oswego.

I left 6 years ago and never been happier. Let the evil teachers union and public employees unions keep screwing you and sooner or later you won't have enough to leave.

The School District is taking up 55% of the property taxes. Seems like alot...but if you don't have good schools...you will not draw the people or the businesses. Kane County seems to take a nice share (which has nothing to do with the City of Aurora). I'm not a fan of Aurora, but it is quite obvious the blogger has a very closed mind and is quite the bully....and must own a nice house/land to have this big of tax bill.

oh...and by the way...my tax bill went up $158...and I live in Aurora, DuPage County, Disctrict 204 Schools (which take 75%) of my taxes...so if you want to bark...I go to your county government.

Time to worry less about the amount and more about how the money is being spent. Are we the tax payer receiving fair value for our contribution.

Remember, cuz of Weisner we arepaying Jim Pilmer to do nothing again, while we are paying Mark Anderson to do nothing. 300, 000 a year wasted in 2 names. Think what the real cost of voter complacency is! Many many millions.

Oh Filmer was in charge of the Weisner directed hit on Jay Leonardi in case he survived the primary. So he would be doing something.

Pilmer not Filmer

Stop being overprotective with kid Leonardi,let him grow up. Teach him the rhyme. "sticks and stones make break my bones, but words will never hurt me"

Our property taxes went up $1000, a result of the tax rate being increased from 10.3% to 11.8%. In addition, we will now have to pay $1,300 for school busing. It is getting very expensive to have an Aurora address!

Don't forget the useless, unpleasant, extremely over-weight and toxic Ergo at $160,000 per year. Weisner has lost whatever weak, lily livered, ADD grip he once had and is now controlled and whipped by this bottom-feeding, HR nightmare.

Will County ranked third in the country for foreclosures fillings yet our property taxes went up 15%. What is wrong with our Aldermen they should be ashamed forcing more people out of their homes and increasing the foreclosures. Our taxes went up 1000.00 from last year but yet our home is worth 30,000 to 50,000 less than what we still owe. Shame on the Aldermen for contributing to a library that is not necessary in this economy. Listen to Suze Orman spend only what you have. Will county residents don't have it, it is clear by all the foreclosures!!!!! Shame Shame on you for forcing us to spend what we do not have!!!!!!!
