ROUND LAKE BEACH, Ill. – With middle-class families in need of tax relief, state Rep. Sam Yingling, D-Grayslake, is asking Congress to restore the full State and Local Tax (SALT) Deduction, which would reduce taxes for many working families.
“With many families struggling to pay their taxes, it is important that all levels of government do their part in reducing tax bills,” said Yingling. “While we work to reduce property taxes on the state level, I ask the federal government to restore the SALT deduction and give taxpayers the relief they deserve.”
The SALT deduction allows those who pay local property taxes, state and local sales taxes, and state income taxes to deduct those taxes from their federal income taxes. Yingling is co-sponsoring House Resolution 195, which calls on Congress to remove the $10,000 cap on SALT deductions that was added in 2017.
Yingling has long been an advocate for lowering tax bills. This session, he has introduced a number of bills aimed at lowering property taxes, like freezing property taxes and raising the maximum amount taxpayers can deduct through various property tax exemptions.
“It is past time that all units of government do what they can to reduce their constituents’ tax bills,” said Yingling. “Uncapping the SALT deduction will be a massive boon to middle-class families across Illinois, and I highly urge lawmakers in the federal government to do the right thing and give taxpayers relief.”
