The Fair Tax

Illinois’ current tax system is fundamentally unfair, disproportionately burdening our middle and lower-income families while creating income inequality in our state.

 

Under the current system, which taxes everyone at the same rate regardless of income, the top 1% of Illinoisans only have to pay approximately 7% of their income in state and local taxes. In contrast, middle and lower-income families are forced to pay nearly double – around 13% of their income in state and local taxes. The Fair Tax will help lift the burden off our working families, while finally forcing the wealthiest residents to pay their share
