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.

    Stop government waste and corruption in Illinois! It is absolutely killing us. I would be shocked if we would not end up with a budget surplus if we managed our State government anything like a business. We are fed up with corruption, abuse of power, waste, and greed by politicians who probably could never match their incomes and benefits in the private sector. It is no wonder that most of them don’t support term limits.

    Democrats need to say what they do and do as they say. Should the temporary tax hikes not expire, then they lied to the people of Illinois.
