Commit to Vote YES

  Illinois needs a plan to get out of the budget mess it has created, without shifting the burden to our older and middle-class residents. The graduated income tax is a step in the right direction.

  • • Voting YES on the graduated income tax on the 2020 ballot could help the state raise around $3 billion a year to deal with the budget crisis and ensure funding of essential services that older residents rely on.

  • • The graduated income tax protects older taxpayers and their families by ensuring they aren't taxed on Social Security and other retirement income.

  • • Only those who can afford it – the wealthiest 3 percent of households – will pay more under the graduated income tax.

It's time we take a step in the right direction to fix our budget crisis. That's why we are asking all Illinois voters to commit to voting "YES" on the Graduated Income Tax Amendment on the ballot this year to start fixing our budget crisis and protect older Illinoisians.

Sign up below to commit to voting "YES" on the Illinois Graduated Income Tax, and we'll send you the latest updates on this issue and voter resources to make your voice heard this fall.
