Chicago, IL – Tomorrow is election day in Illinois and government bureaucrats across the state want voters to approve tax increases on their ballots. Taxpayers United of America (TUA) is opposing seven property tax increase referenda on the April 4, 2017, ballot alongside our local supporters.
TUA and local supporters are opposing two home rule referenda in Lynwood and Coal City and government school property tax increase referenda in Berwyn, Evanston, Hinsdale, and Oak Park.

“Whether the proposal to voters is to enact home rule, which gives unlimited taxing authority to local bureaucrats, or to issue tens of millions of dollars in new bonds and raise property taxes, taxpayers in these six communities must reject these seven property tax increase referenda on the April 4 ballot to avoid disastrous increases to their property tax bills,” said Tobin.
“TUA has defeated 420 local property tax increase referenda since 1977. Voters should urge their fellow taxpayers to Vote No on these ballot measures and against any other tax increase referenda on their local ballot tomorrow.”
“We urge all voters in these six communities to defeat the seven property tax hike referenda for taxpayers.”
Tax Accountability, the political action arm of Taxpayers United of America, is also proud to have endorsed the Magnificent Seven Republican McHenry Township candidates for the April 4 election. Springfield has made Illinois a financial mess, but Illinoisans must also stay vigilant in local politics to reduce tax burdens and government waste. Tax Accountability endorses:
Trustees – Bob Anderson, Mike Rakestraw, Bill Cunningham, & Stan Wojewski; Supervisor – Steve Verr; Clerk – Dan Aylward; Highway Commissioner – Steve Koerber.
“These seven candidates have been tireless advocates for taxpayers and tax relief as longtime residents and activists,” said president of Tax Accountability, Jim Tobin. “When elected, the Magnificent Seven Republican McHenry Township candidates will continue to champion the principles of property tax relief and better government. Tax Accountability is proud to endorse these tax fighters for the April 4 election.”
Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 4.
