Pritzker 'fair tax' amendment would allow lawmakers to impose new types of income taxes
from Illinois Policy Institute
Deleting one sentence from the Illinois Constitution will make Illinoisans vulnerable to extra charges atop their income taxes under a constitutional amendment championed by Gov. J.B. Pritzker. The Illinois Constitution currently bars the state from imposing more than one type of tax on income. But Pritzker’s amendment scraps that language, allowing Illinoisans to be taxed more than once on the same dollar earned.
