Chicago sucks. Even small things like yearly filings, many states dont require it, Illinois does. Its really pretty pointless but they get $300 out of you every year just to refile your paperwork. That's the minor stuff though. Illinois is a nightmare in tersm of taxes and regulation. It's not reasy to live here and operate a business in another state as illinois very liberally tries to go after companies saying everything constitutes doing business in illinois and they want their cut.

A few years back amazon simply allowing someone to run ads on their blog according to illinois was the same as running a brick and mortar in illinois
