Illinois House GOP aims to fight inflation with tax credit

SPRINGFIELD (WGEM) - Milk, bread, turkey and diapers - the effects of inflation have been wide-ranging for consumers.

Overall inflation is at 6.2%, and Republicans estimate the average family grocery bill has gone up by 5.4%.

Two Illinois House Republicans hope the state can provide some relief by giving people a refundable tax credit. Rep. Tom Demmer (R-Dixon) and Rep. Avery Bourne (R-Morrisonville) introduced their plan Tuesday morning.

They want single-filers making up to $75,000 to get a $200 tax credit. Joint filers making up to $150,000 would get $400 under the plan, and heads of households bringing in up to $112,500 would get $200.
