Hi Dan, Have you spent much time outside of the cook county region advocating for the Fair Tax and what has been your feed back?
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?
Great question, Dawn! The answer is no. This proposal would NOT tax retirement income.
Excellent event. Thank you.
Thank you to all the speakers!
Sen. Biss, your explanation on the property tax, sales tax and the disproportionate unfairness was very helpful. Thank you so much!
