2020-08-16: The Illinois Green Party Coordinating Committee Endorses the Fair Tax Amendment
The Illinois Green Party believes the proposed change in the State Constitution to allow a graduated income tax structure is an idea that is long overdue and should be supported by the voters.
Today, only about one third of the states have a flat income tax as now exists in Illinois. Such taxes impose the same percentage tax on a multi-millionaire as on a janitor. Furthermore, the legal deductions and credits that are usually available to those in higher income brackets often make tax rates for the wealthy actually lower than those of the middle income and poorest citizens.
