FRIDAY. JANUARY 24, 1989 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS Choate Propose 2 Pet. State Income Tax SPRINGFIELD, M. (AP)—A Package of bills calling for a two per cent state income tax on individuals was introduced Thursday by Rep. Clyde Choate of Anna, Democratic minority whip. Choate said the legislature must take steps to revamp the Illinois revenue system because the state and local governments "are in a perpetual financial crisis. The bills also proposed a five per cent income tax on corporations, elimination of the existing corporate franchise tax, suspending collection of all personal property taxes and reducing the overall sales tax from five to to four per cent. -o- -o- -o- Under the legislation, one per cent of the < individual income levy would go to local governments as reimbursement for loss of personal property taxes. A $600 income tax exemption for individuals also is provided in the bills. Choate said his plan would produce $187 million a year in -o- -o -o- money for state programs. Ususe City S;il«>s Tn.v Tie proposed that the state- sales tax be cut to three per cent and the city sales tax raised to one per cent. Tin? stale levy is 4Vi per cent and the city lax three-quarters of one per cent. Choate said consumers would -o- -o- -o- save about S220 million a year in their total tax payments, including a 16 per cent reduction in property taxes due to elimination of personal taxes. Fifteen other legislators .joined Choate in sponsoring the measures. Revivals Feb. 4 To Feb. 10 Mt. V.
