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.

    More taxes are NOT the answer. Ending corruption and job creation would be a better avenue. Illinois needs new leadership, or business owners like myself will take their businesses elsewhere. We are being taxed to death already.

    The state of IL does not need more money, we need leaders that practice financial responsibility.

    Use the money we already give you guys and be smart about it. You waste entirely too much money keeping friends happy and not the good citizens of this state. You’ll be chasing more out of Illinois, if you don’t shape up the spending.
