Lt. Gov. Simon: State Should Evaluate Progressive Income Tax

Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon… who is challenging Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka in the November general election… says the state should take a close look at adopting a progressive income tax structure.


In an interview for the 970 WMAY News Feed, Simon stopped short of explicitly endorsing the idea… but said she believed it would be more fair and would reduce inequities under the state’s current flat tax.


Simon says when all taxes are added together, low-income households pay a bigger percentage of their incomes in taxes than wealthier families do.


Moving to a progressive tax would require an amendment to the Illinois Constitution.
