Illinois has the highest wireless taxes in the country at 27.6%. In Chicago, taxes on a family with four lines of taxable wireless service paying $100 per month are nearly $500 per year—over 40 percent of the bill.

Illinois for some reason doesn't tax retirement distributions (like from IRA's or pensions)

Nope. The whole point of that is to keep their fat pension recipients happy so they stay here and keep voting for them.

Average pension in the state is around $46K, hardly fat pensions...

The median pension in the US is ZERO, so as time goes on, all pensions will go under a great deal of scrutiny when only a sliver of the retiree population gets them, especially when they are funded with current income (like a Ponzi scheme) from taxpayers.

All states have pension plans, Illinois just chose to not fund it properly, instead overspending and wasting in all other areas..

If we are talking about prepaid still in this thread, I did something that helped many years ago. I had postpaid with Verizon, and paid via automatic deduction from my checking account, and had e mail billing so I never got anything delivered via USPS. i changed my place of use and billing address to Nevada (used a Verizon store as the address), and my taxes literally went from $8 a month to about 5 cents.
