Feb 19, 2014 by AFP

Were you aware that some politicians in the Legislature are considering yet another tax hike, one that could affect 85% of Illinois taxpayers?  I hope you will join us for a townhall meeting to learn about the progressive income tax proposal.

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 us on Thursday, Feb. 27th for a townhall discussion about the Progressive Income Tax proposal.

Stopping the progressive tax is a big challenge.  These townhalls are an opportunity to educate yourself on the issue, hear the facts and help stop this tax hike proposal.
