Has anyone else bought a car from a private party in crook county in the last 6 months or so? I have. 6 months ago I bought a car from a co-worker. I tagged and titled it and paid the state tax. A month ago I got a notice in the mail from the county demanding $175.00 tax on a 13 year old car. I called the place where I tagged it and was told that this was some new law that was quietly passed last March and they weren't going to try to collect the tax until after the November election. This is really low and this hurts the very people who can least afford this extra expense. People buying cars that are 11 years old or older are the people who are struggling to get by. I know, I've been there. So thank you Toni Prickwinkie and the crook county commissioners.

Illinois says they are broke all of the time! Residents here that boast about Abbott bailing Lansing out don't get that it's on our backs...just like crook county...crook village under Abbotts watch! Tired of it!

Abbott is backed by Donne Trotter. There's a reason right there not to vote for him. Donne Trotter is just another crook county crook. Abbott also doubled the price of our city stickers, under him, I wonder what tax ( I mean fee ) he will jack up next.
