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.

    As a candidate for State Representative in the 76th District, my pledge is to help bring fiscal sanity to a State Government that has shown the undeniable lack of personal responsibility and blatant desire to ignore their constituents. We must bring jobs back to Illinois in order to pay our bills, and with actions like this, we are doing nothing more than telling businesses that we don’t want you.

    We need people who have “Bocce” to stand up for what our Country & State should be. Listen to the people, (NOT the ones who gets Aid from the government. Those people get paid for their votes.)

    We can NOT continue to give to ALL who think they are ENTITLED. We need to stop all these handouts. We need to put the government back as it was meant to be.

    Our state is in quick decline! Of the nine close friends our family has, six are moving out of state within the next two years! What is going on? These folks aren’t retiring, or moving closer to family….they’re moving to financially stable states with smaller income and property taxes! Their jobs are here – but they’re moving out of state to AVOID the calamity which they see forthcoming to IL.

    Makes us stop and think about why we’re located in IL. Frankly, with property taxes as high as they are – lots of more interesting places sound better and better. Our tax bill is in the mail – we’ll see what it says and make a decision based on that.

    Add income taxes on top of high property tax (for the “glory” of living in DuPage? Really?) – and our desire to leave increases.
