Illinois will have voters vote on taxing the wealthy at a higher rate

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Voters will decide whether to change Illinois’ income-tax structure after the House approved a constitutional amendment on Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s graduated tax proposal.

The House voted 73-44 Monday to put the question on the November 2020 ballot. It needed 71 votes.

Voter approval would mean eliminating the current flat-rate tax of 4.95%. Democratic Pritzker intends that a progressive structure would increase taxes on incomes higher than $250,000. Pritzker says 97 percent of taxpayers would pay no increase in taxes.
