If you look closely at the detailed Illinois tax bill, you will see the 12-15 government bodies that are allowed to tax each property and that the biggest majority or about 80%, will go to the school districts. Other states may fund their schools differently, perhaps through a user or sales tax etc....Some states do have really low real estate taxes and take in their money from you somewhere else....
