Lawmakers need to hear from you! Call now and tell your State Representative to support the Fair Tax and fund the future we all deserve.
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.

Please click here to call* NOW. Tell your State Representative to do what is right for Illinois and support the Fair Tax.
