    Governor Quinn's Fascist View of Illinios

     

    • A new 7.3 percent amusements and admissions tax on spectator events, such as movies, professional sports and adult strip club entry fees.
    The tax would not be assessed on video rentals, bowling and golf. The tax would yield more than $80 million per year.

    Everytime Quinn opens his Mouth a Tax comes out.
    I say abolish the Needless Secartary of State Quinn. Do people need guns and potrol cars to make License Plates?
    And cut the Illinois state Budget.
    Obivously you have no experience in A Balanced Budget.
    Only Tax increase.
    To much Pork Quinn.


    GOV. GUINN'S PROPOSED TAX INCREASES

     

    TAX INCREASES EFFECTIVE APRIL 1 TO JUNE 30

     

    • Triple the 35-cent-per-pack cigarette tax to $1.05. The tax would yield $29.7 million during the quarter.
    • Raise liquor taxes by 89 percent. The tax on a six-pack of beer, now about 5 cents, would increase by 4.5 cents. A bottle of wine would cost about 10 cents more. The tax would yield $4.2 million during the quarter.
    • Increase the annual business license tax of $100 per employee to $300. This tax is paid by employers, not employees. Because the tax is paid quarterly, companies would pay $75 per employee during the quarter, up from $25. The tax would yield $42.7 million during the quarter.
    • Increase by 33 percent fees charged to noncasino businesses that have slot machines. The tax would yield $600,000 during the quarter.
    TAX INCREASES EFFECTIVE JULY 1

     

    • A new 7.3 percent amusements and admissions tax on spectator events, such as movies, professional sports and adult strip club entry fees. The tax would not be assessed on video rentals, bowling and golf. The tax would yield more than $80 million per year.
    • Permanently levy the cigarette tax of $1.05 per pack. The tax would yield about $120 million a year.
    • Permanently levy the 89 percent increase in liquor taxes. The tax would yield about $17 million a year.
    • Assess an annual business license tax $100 renewal charge for each employee in a company. The tax would yield about $10 million a year.
    TAX INCREASES EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2004

     

    • Require employers to pay the annual business license tax of $300 per employee for two more years. The increase would yield $180 million a year.
    • Raise fees charged by the secretary of state's office for incorporating companies in Nevada by 50 percent. The tax would yield $28 million a year.
    • Permanently levy the 33 percent fee increases charged to noncasino businesses that have slot machines. The tax would yield $2.4 million a year.
    TAX CHANGES EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2005

     

    • Increase property taxes paid by all businesses and residents by 15 cents per $100 of assessed value. Under the proposal, the owner of a $200,000 home would pay an additional $105 per year. The tax would yield $100 million a year. A separate bill proposes increasing property taxes by another 1 cent per $100 of assessed value to pay existing state construction debts. That tax would yield about $6.5 million a year.
    • Increase the gross gaming tax rate, now 6.25 percent, to 6.5 percent. The tax would yield about $24 million a year.
    • Levy a new .25 percent gross receipts tax on all annual business revenue over $450,000. About 62 percent of companies would not pay the tax because they do not collect $450,000 in annual gross revenue. The tax would bring in more than $222 million a year.
    • Reduce the annual business license tax of $300 per employee to $80. The tax reduction means state government revenue from the tax would decline by $130 million a year.
