Well, one certainly doesn't pay a higher percentage of income taxes if you live in Hyde Park or Mt. Lookout. Of course, since people in these neighborhoods tend to have higher incomes than others, and since these neighborhoods contain very desirable properties (and therefore one might find more persons here who work outside the city but choose to live in it); these two factor may result in HP and MtL generating more income tax per capita than other primarily residential neighborhoods in the city. But since the property values are greater in these neighborhoods than most, and since both of these neighborhoods are almost entirely built out (e.g. no new construction) and therefore the properties therein do not qualify for tax abatements that other high value property in the city may, then relatively speaking, yes the residents of these two neighborhoods tend to pay more in property taxes than others. You asked two different questions, one about income tax specifically and another about taxes in general, so I decided to respond to both.
