Illinois politicians and the media claim it’s impossible to fix Illinois’ fiscal and economic mess without a multibillion-dollar tax hike. As a result, much of the focus is on what they can tax and how high they can tax it.
Just in the past month, the General Assembly has proposed an increase in the income tax rate, a sales tax on services, a payroll tax, a tax on sugary drinks, and more. Lawmakers have spent much less time proposing responsible spending reforms.
The Illinois Policy Institute is changing that. We’re demonstrating that another tax increase would be devastating for Illinois’ already-stagnating economy.
Our team of experts has developed the only plan to balance the state budget without increasing taxes. With your generous gift today, we’ll advance those ideas.
We’ll also push to:
- Give Illinoisans much-needed property tax relief
- Consolidate Illinois’ many layers of duplicative government
- Cut burdensome regulations to attract businesses and jobs to Illinois
We know special interests and status quo politicians will fight us every step of the way. That’s why we need courageous Illinoisans like you on our team.
