The politicians are hoping you will trust them. Don’t. The truth is:
- The progressive tax will likely result in a tax hike of $3,500 on the typical Illinois family. This will not fix Illinois’ problems just like all the other tax increases we’ve had did not fix Illinois’ problems.
- The progressive tax would raise taxes on over 110,000 small businesses taxes in the middle of the economic recession caused by COVID-19. This is the last thing small businesses can afford.
- State lawmakers are asking voters to trust them not to raise taxes on the middle class, but they just broke the same promise as recently as 2017, when they made permanent the 2011 temporary tax increase.
