The old way of taxing income in Illinois
is unfair and inadequate.
We can fix it.

Everyone benefits from Fair Tax reform—but we can only win if everyone’s involved. Learn how you can help the Vote Yes campaign in your community! Together we can lift the unfair burden from the middle class, make it so the millionaires pay their share, raise revenue for schools and other priorities, and ease the property tax crunch.
Lift the burden from the middle class.
Make the millionaires pay their share.
Low-income households now pay almost double what the wealthiest pay in taxes as a share of their income! That’s wrong—and it doesn’t raise enough revenue, pushing up property taxes and forcing harmful cuts to education, human services, health care, infrastructure, public safety and jobs.
This November, Vote Yes for Fair Tax so Illinois can ask wealthy people (the top 3%) to pay a little more on income over a quarter-million dollars a year—while everyone else (97% of tax filers) gets a tax cut or pays no more—raising more than $3 billion a year to invest in schools and shared priorities.
