Once the fair tax passes.... can the legislature then change the tax rates anytime they want?

Apologies due to glitch I’ve had to restart poll. If you already voted, try again (won’t let you if yours has been counted)

Will this proposal change how Illinois taxes retirement distributions?
Daniel Biss

Great question, Dawn! The answer is no. This proposal would NOT tax retirement income.
