No Special Treatment For Satellite Companies – Vote Yes on HB 5440

At a time when Illinois is facing another budget crisis, our state continues to fall behind in modernizing its revenue laws to adapt to the current marketplace. For example, cable and other video providers are paying industry standard state and local taxes and fees, while satellite providers – who represent a third of the market and make hundreds of millions in revenue – exploit a corporate loophole to minimize taxes and fees.
The reality is there is a price of doing business in a market where you use a public good, like our roads and infrastructure. House Bill 5440 closes the satellite TV corporate tax loophole and raises up to $75 million for education.
HB 5440 is being championed by individuals and groups statewide who recognize this crisis and want it addressed.
Close the satellite loophole and support our students. Vote YES on HB 5440! To learn more and make your voice heard, visit www.YesOn5440.com.
