Elected officials need to take steps to cut spending and reduce taxes
Illinoisans and their families should save and spend according to their needs and invest for the future.
But time and again, our elected officials, both locally and in Springfield, make those important tasks more difficult with an unforgiving tax environment. They have no plans to make things easier on Illinoisans.
You’re painfully aware of how high our overall tax burden is in this state. We now have one of the highest fuel taxes in the nation.
Illinois property taxes are among the highest in the nation, far outpacing the growth of household income and your home’s value. This is just another burden imposed by government that Illinois homeowners must shoulder. And the massive income tax hike just a few years ago has done nothing to address our crippling property tax burden.
Illinois doesn’t need more taxes. It needs elected officials who are willing to be responsible with our hard-earned dollars. It also needs serious reforms that protect taxpayers.
Sign this petition if you agree that your tax burden is way too heavy!
