It is no secret that Illinois faces significant economic challenges, largely due to the recent recession and poor financial decisions made by politicians.

The IFT believes that cutting critical resources for education and public services is the wrong way to address economic problems. Instead, we must invest in our state’s future and reform our broken revenue system. By creating a fair tax system with lower rates for low income workers, higher rates for the rich, and by closing corporate tax loopholes, we can ease the burden of middle class families and adequately fund essential programs that will help our state grow.
