Property tax reliefSPRINGFIELD- While Governor Rauner has mentioned his plan to freeze property taxes and broaden sales taxes to include more services (links below), State Senator Michael Noland (D-Elgin) provides a comprehensive approach with meaningful alternatives.

Recently, the Senate Committee of the Whole met to discuss the subject of property tax relief or a property tax freeze. During the hearing Sen. Noland spoke on a measure he is sponsoring that would provide such relief while also bringing in revenue for the state.

“To meet the needs adequacy in this state, specifically with education, I introduced SB 1260,” said Noland. “The Governor has mentioned his desire to provide property tax relief, his wish to broaden sales taxes and his willingness to discuss increasing the income tax. This piece of legislation does all of this while also providing adequacy for education and revenue to the state.  Using Gov. Rauner’s words, this is the ‘major structural change overtime’ we need to ‘become a growth state again.’”

SB 1260 is ready to be heard in committee should it be called.
