Rep. Demmer visits Quincy to address opposition of retirement tax

QUINCY (WGEM) – The Republican candidate for Treasurer made a stop at Washington Park on Thursday morning to continue his push against taxing retirement income in Illinois.

Demmer said the people of Illinois already spoke out against additional taxation in 2020. The Pritzker Administration’s “Fair Tax” proposal was rejected by 54% of voters.

Demmer said it’s his goal to be a voice for the majority.

“I stand with a majority of Illinoisans who reject those tax increases, who oppose the retirement tax,” Demmer said. “Those who understand Illinoisans can’t just simply continue to pay more and more taxes while we need to look at the spending side of things and live within the means of the state.”
