Oh, the tax of my tears.
You might get sweeping lake vistas, dual kitchens and heated driveways, but you'll also be the recipient of a huge tax bill, according to Cook County tax records reported by the Sun-Times.
According to the records, the highest taxed single-family home last year was in Winnetka on Sheridan, where the 14,280-square-foot behemoth -- valued at over $12.1 million -- accrued $308,443 in property taxes.
The second highest-taxed home was also on Sheridan Road: a 9,134 square-foot home valued at $6.8 million received a $172,232 bill.
The only home in Chicago proper to make the list was a 7,956 square-foot home on W. Superior Street, which is valued at $7.1 million and was taxed $163,532.
