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.

    Although not a resident of Illinois, I strongly oppose the proposed tax plan submitted by the Democrats because of its’ adverse impact on that state’s economy, which is already in serious

    trouble. Now is not the time to raise taxes, now is the time to reduce taxes, reduce spending and provide the economic impetus favoring increased business activity, and thus increased jobs, throughout the state.

    We in the state of IL already pay more taxes than most states; why should we pay more?
