DES PLAINES, Ill. – In an effort to cut taxes for local families, state Rep. Marty Moylan, D-Des Plaines, supported a resolution calling for changes to the tax code to implement a fair tax structure in the state of Illinois.

“The current system is not working for the middle class families and small businesses here in Illinois,” Moylan said. “We cannot afford any new or higher taxes, and instead should be focusing on new solutions that will provide real tax relief for our working families.”

Moylan has a strong voting record to bring tax relief to the region, Moylan voted against the recent income tax increase, fought against the county’s sugar beverage tax, and has sponsored numerous pieces of legislation to provide property tax relief.

Moylan co-sponsored House Resolution 1025, which encourages the implementation of a fair tax structure in Illinois. This reform will bring tax relief to about 98% of Illinois residents and is similar to the taxing systems that are currently in place in 33 other states, including Kentucky, Iowa, Missouri and Wisconsin. A fair tax structure would result in a lower tax rate for lower income earners and a higher rate for the state’s wealthiest millionaires and billionaires.

“It is getting harder and harder for working families to survive here in Illinois, that is why I voted against Springfield’s income tax hike,” Moylan said. “The people of Illinois deserve critical tax relief and this new fair tax structure helps lift up the middle class by providing crucial tax cuts to working families, not giving more tax credits to the ultra-wealthy.”
