Illinois lawmakers are currently working to round up the votes needed to pass $5 billion in tax hikes.
The current proposal increases the personal income tax rate to 4.95 percent from the current 3.75 percent rate. The corporate income tax rate rises to 7 percent from the current 5.25 percent rate.
The proposal also expands the sales tax to laundry and dry-cleaning services, as well as storage and other services to bringing in an estimated $300 million.
