Governor Candidate Dillard Wants to Trim State's Gas Tax


Republican candidate for governor Kirk Dillard wants to cut some of the tax that Illinois imposes on gasoline.

 

The state tacks a gasoline sales tax on top of other state and federal fuel taxes on every gallon, with the proceeds split between state and local governments.

 

Dillard says he would keep the local share intact, but would eliminate most of the state share… and take what is left to finance bonds for infrastructure plans.

 

He says the move would save the average motorist $200 a year… but it would also take away more than half-a-billion dollars a year out of the state treasury.
