Next November, Illinois residents will vote on changing the state's income tax system from a flat tax to a fair tax. TONIGHT: Find out what that means and why you should care.

November 7, 2019

When: tonight, 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.


Where: Evanston Public Library, main branch, Community Meeting Room.


What: Kathy Tate-Bradish of the League of Women Voters- Evanston will explain the Illinois Fair Tax Amendment--which will appear on the ballot next November--and answer questions about it.


The flat tax rate has been part of the state’s constitution since 1970. But in a historic move this past May, the House voted 73-44 to let voters decide whether to amend the constitution to allow for the graduated rate, under which high earners would pay more.



Co-hosted by OPAL as part of its mission to engage voters.
