Let Income Tax Increase Expire - Illinois House Republican Leader Jim Durkin

Let Income Tax Increase Expire

In a lame duck session in 2011, the Democrat-controlled legislature imposed a 67% income tax increase on every working person in the state of Illinois. They promised it was temporary and set it to rollback on January 1, 2015. Now they want to make that tax increase permanent.

We don't think it's right. If you agree, please add your name to the petition below and take the added step of sharing it with your friends.

Let's make them keep their promise.

    The driving force behind the bill was fueled by “temporary” and extension from what I gather (in my minimal research) seems to directly have mislead the public since the bill was signed. I don’t like being mislead. Its great to have more money if your the IL government and it may be hard to let this bill expire but it has to happen. If the tax increase really makes sense try to get a permanent bill passed or another temporary one with new updated numbers and approval.

    Reduce the income tax rate back to a flat 3% rate. We, the people of Illinois do not need to provide big government with additional income tax revenue now or in the future.

    Illinois pays enough in taxes, find new ways to fund programs. I am considering moving out of this state because of the way it is run.

    The state income tax rate is out of control. People are moving out because our government has screwed things up so bad here. Fix this crap!
