This popped up in my email inbox this morning from JB Pritzker’s tax hike front group “Think Big Illinois:”
Since today is Tax Day, we thought it would be a good time to remind you how unfair Illinois’ tax system is.
Illinois’ regressive flat tax has put a heavy burden on the middle class and let the wealthiest Illinoisans avoid paying their fair share.
A fair tax will help address Illinois’ $3.2 billion budget crisis and put our state on the path toward fiscal sustainability, all while lifting the burden off working-class families.
Tell them you support a fair tax that makes the wealthy pay their share, while ensuring 97% of Illinoisans see no tax increase.
Illinois should be a state where everyone can get ahead, and a fair tax is a critical step toward making that happen.
