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.

    I think it is disgusting the way they are talking of postponing these discussions until after the elections.

    All that extra tax revenue and still all the unpaid bills. Fix the spending and integrity problems first.

    When you contribute to a pension plan you get a deduction and in Illinois when you receive pension benefits it is not taxed. A DOUBLE TAX BENEFIT. Tax pensions in excess of $30,000 on a single return $45,000 on a Head of Household Return, and $60,000 on a Joint Return. Notice the politicians do not want to tax their excessive pension benefits or the excessive benefits of the public sector voters that keep them in office. They also refer to other states that have graduated tax rates, but they didn’t tell you that those states tax pension benefits. The politicians also do mention amending the State of Illinois Constitution to change the pension benefit clause that prohibits reducing their pension benefits to reality like the private sector.
