Tell your legislator to oppose the Progressive Tax; Sponsor HR 241

April 30, 2013

Some politicians want us to bail out their overspending by changing the Illinois Constitution to impose a “progressive income tax” despite raking in a historic amount of tax revenue this year. Proponents claim the progressive tax will only hike taxes for the rich, but in reality the progressive tax will:

  • Raise taxes on 85% of taxpayers.
  • Raise tax rates for every family earning over $5,000 per year.
  • Further damage Illinois’ ability to spur job creation and compete with other states.

Send a message to your legislator now in support of House Resolution 241 which states opposition to a progressive income tax by clicking HERE.
