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.

    Give them more money and they will not use it pay past due bills, they will invent new things to spend it for.

    I am opposed to any permanent tax increase. This was done in a very dishonest way to start with.

    Enough is enough. Be responsible. No gasoline tax increased. Quite spending money we do not have, you always spend any new generated money. You raised user fees and increased all taxes in this weak poorly run state. Our elected officials are a joke!!!!

    For once, do the right thing and give us a break and stop making us pay for your mistakes.
