The dreaded income tax day falls a little bit later this year, on April 18th. Rallies will be held all over the State of Illinois to draw awareness to high taxes. This year citizens have a lot more to be upset about as the State of Illinois just passed historic 67% income tax hike.
To support our RepealtheTaxHike.com campaign, the Illinois Policy Institute will be sending featured speakers to rallies all over the state to make the call to REPEAL the recent income tax hike.
If your group would like a speaker send an email to BCostin@IllinoisPolicy.org and we will try to accommodate your request.
