DES PLAINES, Ill. – Continuing his efforts to ease the income tax burden on local residents, state Rep. Marty Moylan, D-Des Plaines, has invited Carol Portman, president of the Taxpayers’ Federation of Illinois and Ralph Matire, executive director of the center for Tax and Budget Accountability to host an Income Tax Relief Seminar on Saturday, January 20th, starting at 11:00 a.m. at the Des Plaines Public Library, located at 1501 Ellinwood Avenue in Des Plaines.

“While going door-to-door, I am constantly reminded that the residents of Illinois need real tax relief for our working and middle class families,” Moylan said. “We are facing sky rocketing property taxes, a failed county-wide sugar-beverage tax and yet another increase to our income taxes, all of which I continue to fight against.”

At the meeting, Portman and Matire will give a detailed presentation about ways residents can take advantage of different tax credits. They will also address many growing concerns from both the new GOP Tax plan and the state’s income tax increase, which Moylan voted against. The attendees will also have the opportunity to address the hosts about any questions or concerns they have about their income taxes.

“It’s no secret that Illinois continues to be one of the most taxed states in the nation,” Moylan said. “That is why I encourage all residents to come to my Income Tax seminar, so we can continue the fight against higher taxes and save some more of your hard earned money.” For more information about the event, or to RSVP, please contact Moylan’s full-time constituent office at 847-635-6821 or email
