• Vote No on the Progressive Tax

  • The Champaign County Chamber of Commerce has joined the Vote No to the Progressive Tax Coalition.

    The Chamber opposes the proposed constitutional amendment to create a Progressive Tax.

    The ballot language does not define which income brackets will be subjected to raised taxes. The changing tax rates come from an entirely separate piece of legislation voted on in Springfield - paving the way for potential tax increases at every tax bracket.
