Fair Tax Salon with NCJW @ Zoom
Sep 21 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

NCJW City Salon 

Illinois’ Fair Tax Amendment on November 3 ballot
Monday, September 21, 7-8PM

The Illinois Allow for Graduated Income Tax Amendment is on the November 3, 2020, ballot in Illinois.

A “yes” vote will support the repeal of the state’s current constitutional requirement that the state personal income tax be a flat rate and will allow Illinois to adopt a graduated income tax. The actual tax rates that will result in a graduated income tax are not part of this amendment and will be done in separate legislation. Illinois is one of only nine states that currently have a flat rate personal income tax.

Come hear Emma Kagan of JCUA (Jewish Council on Urban Affairs) who will explain how this amendment will work and educate yourself on this important ballot initiative. Please submit your questions to ChicagoSalon@ncjwcns.org or during the Salon.

Register at https://ncjwcns.org/events/92120salon/. You will receive the Zoom link a few days before the City Salon.
