AFP-IL to host Tax Townhall in DeKalb with Reps. Demmer & Pritchard

April 18, 2014

Were you aware that some politicians in Springfield are considering a number of income tax increases, including a graduated, or “progressive” tax that could affect all Illinois taxpayers who earn over $22,000? On Wednesday, Join state Representatives Tom Demmer & Bob Pritchard, along with AFP-IL, for a townhall meeting to learn about the various tax hike proposals in Springfield.

Tax Town Hall Meeting
Wednesday, April 23, 2014
7pm – 8pm
DeKalb Masonic Lodge
402 E. Fairview Drive, DeKalb
To RSVP for the event, please go here!

Despite having the second-highest unemployment rates in the country and despite enjoying record revenue from the 67% state income tax hike three years ago, our legislators are once again considering raising our taxes. An amendment to the Illinois Constitution has been offered to scrap Illinois’ flat income tax and switch to a graduated, or “progressive,” one. As you can see in the chart below, proponents claim these various hikes would only affect “the rich,” but that is simply not the case.

Join Reps. Demmer & Pritchard on Wednesday, April 23rd for this important townhall.  This is an opportunity to learn about these issues, hear the facts and help stop this tax hike proposal.

Please plan to join us in DeKalb on the 23rd!
