This is interesting:"The Illinois Constitution requires all Illinois taxpayers to pay the same tax rate. If a tax is levied on income at all, this is most fair and stable form of taxation because it allows everyone to pay the same percentage of income to taxes. However, a progressive tax plan being circulated across the state would tax Illinoisans at eight different rates, with the highest rate at 11 percent! This is unconstitutional and unfair."From the Illinois Constitution:SECTION 3. LIMITATIONS ON INCOME TAXATION (a) A tax on or measured by income shall be at a non-graduated rate.http://www.ilga.gov/commission/lrb/con9.htmI wonder if they will try to amend the constitution or just ignore it. They will probably just ignore it.
