GENEVA – Jean Pierce of Geneva will present the case for having a graduated income tax in Illinois at 7 p.m. Feb. 21 at the Unitarian Universalist Society of Geneva, 110 S. Second St., Geneva, according to a news release.

Pierce, who is co-chair of the Issues Committee for the League of Women Voters of Illinois, will discuss how the system would tax higher income levels at a greater percentage than lower income levels.

The Issues Committee has advocated for a fair, graduated income tax rate since the 1970s.

Between1979 and 2015 – after adjusting for inflation – all of the income growth in our country went to the top 10 percent, according to the release.

Pierce will show that the economy will grow and the state will gain much-needed revenue when lower income earners pay less in taxes and the highest income earners pay more.

The presentation is free and open to the public.
