You pay taxes based on your state of residence AFAIK. What I meant earlier is even if you are stuck here for work, if you own property you're better off owning it in Indiana instead of IL.
One thing to bear in mind with Indiana income tax is the fact the counties also charge an income tax. So the low state rate that Indiana proponents always tout is only part of the total amount you pay.

I stand corrected. Wisconsin state tax rates are as high as Illinois proposed. So I guess you would save on property taxes maybe.

So can you live in ANY state and work in another or does it have to be one with a reciprocal agreement?

Yes, someone could hypothetically live in any state and work in another. Not limited to reciprocal agreements either. The answer can be complicated though, potentially. See here:

The only other part of the US where I hear that is northern VA/Maryland-DC suburbs.
