A Fair Tax For Our Future

This November, Illinois voters will be asked to make some critical choices. In addition to voting for candidates who share our goals and values, we have an obligation to vote yes to reforming our tax system for 97% of Illinoisans.

The COVID-19 crisis has exposed how fundamentally unfair and inadequate our current tax system is. Passing a Fair Tax will lift the burden from the middle class while raising $3 billion a year to help fund essential services that have been among the hardest hit by the pandemic.

THIS NOVEMBER, VOTE YES FOR FAIRNESS!

The Fair Tax matters to me because as a first generation college student, I'm living under debt from the generations before not funding higher education.

Illinois has a poor tax structure. The Fair Tax will give us a tax structure that works for everybody instead of dumping it all onto the property tax.

A Fair Tax would help our community and our schools get the support, resources, technology, and building repairs that Chicago schools are missing.
