Illinois just voted to hike taxes 37%.

In a state that is broke and taxes about to go through the roof, I am sure many people will decide to leave the state.

As a home owner, can one simply up and leave? Abandon property? Donate to fire department? Let the municipality take over the property?

Michigan has had this problem. People are willing to sell for a dollar just to get out of state/town. What if there are no buyers?
