State Senator Dillard Announced Gubernatorial Run, Talks Taxes

The latest Republican candidate for governor says everything should be on the table when it comes to overhauling Illinois’s tax structure… except one thing.


State senator Kirk Dillard says he will veto any bill that raises income taxes, including any attempt to create a “progressive” tax structure that imposes higher tax rates on people with higher incomes.


But Dillard says he wants to look at bringing the sales tax code into the 21st Century, and to address the state’s over-reliance on property taxes.


Dillard acknowledges that it may be difficult for the state to repeal the “temporary” 2011 income tax increase and still meet its obligations.
