Ten Chicago Neighborhoods With The Highest Property Taxes (PHOTOS)

One of the few reliable sources of income for our otherwise cash-strapped city is property taxes. Whether you're looking to move to a new neighborhood or just interested in getting a better sense of the city, you might be curious to know which neighborhoods are forking over the most cash per home.

With the help of the goldmine of data from BlockShopper, we've compiled the list of the ten neighborhoods that pay the highest average property taxes per home.

Take a look, and tell us what you think. Is the neighborhood nice enough that folks should hand over the cash willingly? Are you surprised that such a lame part of town has such high property values? Vote on the slideshow, and explain yourself in the comments.
