PTELL limits the maximum tax increases to most, but not all, taxing districts in Madison County to the rate of inflation, and all increases above that rate of inflation go straight to the voters for approval, or revert back.
Right now career politicians are lobbying County Board Members hard to defeat it...in other words...making sure you don't have the right to vote on it at all. "For your own good":
"It's too complex for voters to understand."
The public employee unions are against it: "If your taxing district is only receiving an increase indexed to inflation, we may have too as well."
"If we enact PTELL, taxing districts will raise taxes the last available year." (sic)
As if this year is any different? These people raise taxes at will now, and will continue to do so until such time as PTELL is enacted, or the statutory tax rate is reached.
A litany of excuses designed to deny you a vote on property tax relief already adopted by 80% of Illinois, and working well. Call your County Board member and tell him or her you have the intelligence to decide for yourself.
