Lawmaker backs anti-tax resolution

Posted by wlpo on December 29, 2015

There are state lawmakers of both parties opposing an effort to tax retirement income. One of them is first year state representative Andy Skoog of LaSalle. Skoog is supporting House Resolution 890 that rejects attempts to tax Social Security payments, pensions, and 401-K plans-income currently exempt from the state income tax. Taxing retirement income has surfaced in recent media reports. Skoog said there is no denying the state is in an unprecedented fiscal crisis, but attempting to fix decades of financial mismanagement on the backs of seniors with a fixed income is shameful.

House Resolution 890 currently has 42 bi-partisan sponsors.
