Poe: Stalled Resolution Could Amend State Constitution for Graduated Income Tax


Illinois House Republicans are sounding the alarm over what they say is an attempt to raise taxes by changing the Illinois Constitution.

 

They contend a joint resolution introduced last year… which remains stalled in committee… could be revived at any time in an effort to put a constitutional amendment on the November ballot.

 

That proposed amendment would change Illinois’s flat income tax to a graduated tax, where people who make more would pay a higher rate.

 

Springfield Republican Raymond Poe says that would most likely mean higher taxes for middle-class Illinoisans, not just the wealthy… and says the move would drive jobs out of the state.
