Candidate Rauner Proposes Overhaul of State's Tax Structure


Republican Bruce Rauner is proposing a significant overhaul of Illinois’s tax structure… lowering the state income tax, freezing property tax rates, and expanding the sales tax to cover dozens of services that are not currently taxed.

 

It’s part of what Rauner calls a “jobs agenda” that would also make business-friendly changes to the workers comp system.

 

Governor Pat Quinn’s campaign attacked the Rauner plan… saying it would impose “regressive” sales taxes that will hurt small businesses, while shifting the tax burden away from the wealthiest Illinoisans.
