Illinois Ballot Initiative is a Tax Hike Barely in Disguise

A new constitutional amendment on the ballot that Illinoisans will face in November, the “Illinois Allow for Graduated Income Tax Amendment,” could prove disastrous for the state’s taxpayers and economy. Currently, the Illinois state constitution only allows for a flat income tax system. This amendment would repeal this constitutional requirement that the state's personal income tax is a flat rate across income, and instead allow the state to enact legislation for a graduated income tax.
