Local legislators oppose graduated income tax

From left, Illinois state reps. Sandy Pihos, R-Glen Ellyn; Dennis Reboletti, R-Elmhurst, and Darlene Senger, R-Naperville, join members of the Illinois House Republican caucus Monday to announce their unanimous opposition to the graduated income tax proposal introduced by legislative Democrats.

The plan would replace the state’s current flat tax with a graduated income tax system, with rates to be determined by the General Assembly, according to a news release from the caucus.
