IFT Members Bust Myths About the Fair Tax

Updated: Oct 14

There has been a lot of talk about the Fair Tax ballot question, and not all of it has been true.



Will it allow Illinois to invest in the areas we need it most, like education, social services, infrastructure, and jobs by raising over $3 billion in revenue each year?

Yes.


Will it bring greater fairness to our tax structure by establishing higher rates for higher incomes (over $250,000/year) and lower rates for low and moderate incomes?

Definitely!


Will it hurt businesses? Tax retirement income? Drive people out of Illinois?

No way!


Your vote is your voice. Vote YES for fairness. Please cast your ballot 
by mail or in person in this General Election by November 3.
