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.

    I prefer the flat tax, simply because it is fair for all. I know the “rich” have more disposable resources and can afford to pay more, but that is not the point. Do I understand correctly that in 2011 a “temporary” tax increase was enacted (SB 2505 2010)? The individual tax rate went from 3% to 5% and the corporate rate went from 4.8% to 7%. If nothing is done the rates will revert to former levels in 2016. When did the 3.75% individual rate become law?
