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.

    I am strongly against extending this tax. We Illinois residents are victims of over spending and lack of spending accountability. It is time to change this before Illinois is broke!!

    The tax increase must expire! We the people can not afford to live in Illinois any longer! The Illinois government must reduce costs and find where else they can save money. We had to do the same thing. There’s just no more to give! The people need a break too so that we can get back to living and breathing a bit easier. Vote NO to any additional tax increases! The money isn’t being watched or spent on the right things. Don’t break your promise!

    In an effort to make the tax increase permanent; thereby, they are breaking their contract with Illinois taxpayers.
