Gov. Quinn Pushes to Make Temporary Income Tax Increase Permanent


Governor Pat Quinn may be betting his political future on his hope that Illinois voters want to maintain school funding and other state services more than they want to see the state’s temporary income tax hike expire.

 

Quinn is calling for making the increase permanent in order to avoid what he calls “savage” cuts in school funding.

 

And Quinn is challenging critics who want the tax hike to expire at the end of the year to explain exactly how they would do that and still pay for schools and other essential services.

 

Quinn’s proposal also calls $500 in property tax relief annually for all homeowners.
