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.

    Illinois would benefit more with many years of tax relief, rather than making a temporary tax increase from 2011 become permanent. Illinois high tax rates have helped drive tax payers and businesses to other states. Keeping taxes high is going to further shrink Illinois already struggling economy.

    The amount of taxes imposed on the citizens and companies is ridiculous. This behavior of our politicians will continue to drive citizens and companies out of our state. I must admit that if it does, I’ll be one of them

    The budget should be balanced by utilizing across the board spending cuts. Stop making Illinois undesirable for job growth.

    Someone leaves Illinois every 10 minutes. Wisconsin, Indiana, Florida, just about anywhere is better than tax and spend Illinois. I paid 100% into my pension.
