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.

    This was supposed to help pay down bills, but instead the government used these funds as a new source of income and we are still billions of dollars in debt and have a lowered credit rating. If the legislature looked at the financial aspect of the state as if it were there finances, I believe changes would be made.

    Raising taxes causes taxpayers and their employers to flee Illinois. Outmigration is already the second worst of all the US states. Kill the goose that lays the golden eggs and you wind up with a dead goose and less State revenue.

    They’re taxing us all into poverty. We need a Robin Hood to save us all.
