The SBAC Takes on The Illinois’ Business Tax Structure

July 14, 2011
The Illinois state corporate income tax has been a hot topic in Illinois. Indeed, many SBAC members, other small business owners and professionals, have concerns regarding whether the tax code treats small and mid-market businesses fairly. The large corporations speak loudly on these issues. It is time we had a voice as well.

The SBAC has been invited to testify before a joint Illinois House-Senate Revenue Committee for a set of hearings to review Illinois’ business tax structure and various incentives offered to employers. The first hearing is July 19 at 10:00am in Chicago in the Bilandic Building. As a small- or mid-sized business, your voice is particularly important to this discussion, as we are responsible for the majority of job growth. The SBAC has made a survey so we can hear your thoughts and concerns. Please answer as many of these questions as you wish, as fully as you can. Please feel free to contact SBAC President Elliot Richardson at Thank you.
