air Tax passes! Illinois legislators voted to let the people of Illinois decide whether to distribute the tax burden on its citizens more equitably through a graduated income tax. The referendum for the Fair Tax amendment will be on the ballot November 2020. Then we may stand with our legislators in support of fair and equitable responsibility for the fiscal well-being of our Illinois, by voting "yes" ourselves.
Opposition to the graduated income tax was fierce and for many legislators this was a difficult vote. It is important to thank them for doing the right thing.
If your legislator voted "yes," say thank you! If "no," let them know that you are voting yes when your turn comes -- making more equitable the tax burden for the citizens of Illinois. (Check HERE to learn who your legislators are).
Your representative: Check HERE to see how they voted. If they voted yes, say "Thank you!" HERE. If they voted "no," express your disappointment HERE with gratitude that you are now able to weigh in yourself on the next public ballot.
