We are one step closer to a Fair Tax. Last week, the Illinois Senate passed a measure to put a constitutional amendment for a Fair Tax on the November 2020 ballot. The proposal now needs to be approved by the House. Lawmakers need to hear from you! Click here to call* now and tell your State Representative to support the Fair Tax and fund the future we all deserve. A Fair Tax would give 97% of Illinois earners some tax relief, while generating $3.4 billion per year in much-needed revenue for public schools, colleges and universities, and public services. The measure could be voted on in the House at any time, so act NOW. Click here* to call your lawmaker and urge a YES vote on the Fair Tax. House lawmakers need to know that you support the Fair Tax, which asks the very wealthiest Illinoisans pay a little more to support schools and essential services while the other 97% of us get a tax break.
