Right now, Illinois has a flat tax. A graduated tax scheme would give lawmakers a blank check to hike taxes and create additional tax brackets. Given Springfield politicians’ records on taxes, it’s likely they’d take full advantage of greater authority to raise your taxes.
Property taxes in Illinois are already some of the highest in the nation. Giving politicians a blank check would just add to the burden Illinoisans already bear and impede our ability to improve our lives.
Send lawmakers a message and tell them to support our flat income tax!
