95th General Assembly Tax Survey
We are pleased to provide our 13th biennial Tax Survey of the Illinois General Assembly, which examines the tax and spending bills of the 95th Illinois legislature. This is our most encouraging Tax Survey to date. While a number of smaller tax increases were passed, NTUI and its members beat back all the major ones and even got a tax cut approved. Together we have defeated every proposed state income tax increase for the past 16 years.
We thank Senators Gary Dahl (R-38) and John Jones (R-54) for being Taxpayer Friends this year. In the House, Rep. Keith P. Sommer (R-106, Morton) has now been a Taxpayer Friend for seven years in a row. Check the report to see if your representatives are included in our lists of Taxpayer Friends and Taxpayer Enemies.
