Fiscal Responsibility and Taxation
The most important issue to Illinois property owners, especially those in Cook County and the city of Chicago, is their incredibly high property and corporate tax burdens. After talking with residents and local business owners, it is clear people have had enough for far too long. Many residents and businesses are contemplating leaving Illinois. Michael does not think it’s fair that so many tax dollars are paid into the system, with almost no results to show to taxpayers. The people of Illinois need property tax relief and a common sense approach to fixing Illinois’ financial problems. Michael wants to make sure the Illinois government responsibly manages state revenue and fairly allocates taxpayer dollars.
