Taxpayers Win Big in Illinois Primary

Chicago—Taxpayers voted ‘NO’ on property tax increases in Tuesday’s primary election, according to Jim Tobin, president of Taxpayers United of America (TUA).

“We soundly beat property tax increase referenda in Berwyn South SD 100, Kane County, Huntley Park District, and the Village of Bull Valley, bringing our total to 203 property tax increase victories since 1977.

Get Out and Vote!

Today is the general primary election in Illinois and we need all taxpayers to get out and vote!

There are well over 100 property tax increase referenda across the state and not a single one of them should pass! Remember that about 80% of local taxes go to salaries and benefits of government employees so it’s really not about the children; it’s about propping up the fat salaries of the bloated government.
