Despite having one of the highest unemployment rates in the country and on the heels of a 67% state income tax hike just 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. While proponents claim this hike would only affect “the rich,” the fact is that one proposal would raise the marginal tax rate on anyone earning more than $5,000.

Join state Sen. Michael Connelly and AFP-IL staff Thursday for a townhall discussion about the Progressive Income Tax proposal.

Stopping the progressive tax is a big challenge. Our townhall is an opportunity to educate yourself on the issue, hear the facts and help stop Springfield’s tax hike proposal.

Please plan to join us Thursday!
