Graduated Tax Petition - Illinois House Republican Leader Jim Durkin

Graduated Tax Petition

We, the undersigned, oppose the Democrats' Graduated Income Tax proposal. Under current Illinois law, the individual income tax rate will be 3.75 percent in 2015. Under a new plan, however, a higher 4 percent rate kicks in for people earning just $18,000. That income tax rate targets Illinois’ working class.

    Outrageous! People out here are really hurting and the Illinois Dems just keep piling it on! I knew this would happen the minute they raised taxes 66%.

    I am against any graduated tax. Didn’t we just have an increase! When does it end? Illinois needs to get its spending under control and reform it’s pension plans. We are 25 years behind the federal government in reforming our pension structure. We don’t want to end up like Detriot in bankruptcy, which benefits neither the democrates nor the republicans.
