093011br0124RSPRINGFIELD – State Senator Toi Hutchinson (D-Chicago Heights) released the following statement this afternoon after attending the bill signing of legislation enacting a Fiscal Year 2020 state budget and putting forth to voters the question of a progressive income tax:

“We have had a structural deficit in this state for a very, very long time. One of the first things I learned when I became Chair of the Senate Revenue Committee was just how old, outdated and antiquated our tax system is and how it isn’t working for the economy we actually have.

“You can’t expect results about the things you care about without proper investment on the front end. The rates package answers a call from the community to be transparent about changing our tax code. It lays out proposed rates in full view of every Illinois resident to see. This is the result of all of us working to do exactly what our constituencies asked us to do.

“Our problems are way too big to think small. But we have worked together in a way we haven’t seen in years. We are ready to meet the challenges that the future holds.”

02072019CM0711RbSPRINGFIELD – After decades of work to implement a fair tax in Illinois, the Senate passed a package of proposals this afternoon that represents the largest change to the tax code in Illinois in decades.

“We simply cannot afford to continue careening from crisis to crisis, solving our budget woes with short-term band-aids that only further burden middle and working-class Illinois families,” Hutchinson said.

Hutchinson is the lead sponsor of Senate Bill 687, which would set a graduated rate structure for Illinois’ income tax system, with lower-income families paying less while wealthier individuals would pay more. Under the plan, those making less than $250,000 would pay the same or less in income taxes, representing 97 percent of Illinois taxpayers.

03122019CM0467RSPRINGFIELD – A reform package to Illinois’ antiquated property tax system sponsored by State Senator Toi Hutchinson (D-Chicago Heights) passed the Senate this week.

“Property taxes are something that every politician from both sides of the aisle talks about, but little is done to actually reform the system,” Hutchinson said. “Today we have a chance to take a step in the right direction that will increase tax assessment accuracy and transparency for property owners and go a long way towards bringing fairness to homeowners in the South Suburbs and across the state.”

Hutchinson’s proposal, contained in Senate Bill 1379, represents a comprehensive set of reforms to Cook County’s property tax system. While the proposal would only apply to Cook County, all Illinois counties would have the ability to adopt the requirements.
