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.

    Add Private Sector jobs & cut government jobs & spending. No new or added taxed. Give businesses & manuf. incentives like cutting capital gains taxes to start getting this State running again & the revenues will flow. Take away the burdens & the rewardswill come back to the people of Illinois big time!!

    But takes business people to know that. The government show stop trying to play employer. Let the people thay know how to genetate jobs & product do so! Get politicians out of the way. & stop passing new laws to get names in a book.

    To repeat. There is only one way to get Illinois going & that is private sector jobs. Give business what they need to compete with the world! We have the resources. At least for now!

    The government must curb its appetite for ever-increasing taxes. Stop spending, harness the irresponsible impulse to create new programs that cannot be afforded.

    Enough is enough, this state is already too expensive to live in. Policies like this have already driven businesses out of the state, who next, it’s citizens?
