This amendment would change the Illinois state constitution to eliminate the requirement that Illinois tax income at a single rate, allowing instead for higher rates for higher incomes and lower rates for people with low and moderate incomes. Taxes will be increased on those who make more than $250,000 per year. This amendment will raise more than $3 billion a year for state and local government, schools, and human services.
