- Local Property Taxes: Families living in Cook County can expect to see property tax rates increase an additional 3% on bills due August 1st (after a 6.5% increase the year before) & Lake County property owners pay some of the highest property taxes in the country and they keep going up every year!
Watch State Senator Julie Morrison mock constituents desiring property tax relief as ill-informed
- A New State Property Tax: The Chicago Federal Reserve suggested adding a new statewide property tax scheme as the only way to pay Illinois' unfunded pension obligations
- A New Income Tax Increase: Springfield politicians are campaigning to impose a new "Graduated Income Tax" increase.
I call upon Mike Madigan and State Senator Julie Morrison to stop using my home and paycheck as their piggy bank to fund a broken Illinois government. They should instead work to enact fiscal and pension reforms that lower the cost of government.
