Two influential aldermen on the Chicago Finance Committee, Alderman Burke and Alderman Austin, have proposed a $1 tax on all taxi rides in the City of Chicago. This tax is being collected in an effort to balance the City’s bloated budget. If this tax were to pass it would generate an estimated $70 million in revenue for the City per year.
