The campaign to pass the Fair Tax constitutional amendment is drawing to a close, and we need everyone's help to reach the finish line successfully! Now more than ever it's time to modernize our tax system by making possible a graduated income tax, a position the Illinois LWV has supported for 5o years. Talk to your family, friends and neighbors about this important step to make Illinois a fairer and better place to live for everyone. Key points:
- The Fair Tax will provide funding for education, healthcare, and job creation.
- People who earn less than $250,000 will pay the same or less in taxes.
- Retirement income will NOT be taxed.
- The majority of small businesses will get tax relief.
