===Tax legislation===
  
In 2009, Althoff is a co-sponsor of [[Illinois Senate Bill 1555 (2009)|Senate Bill 1555]].  SB 1555 would alter the way that taxes are imposed in Special Service Areas throughout the state.<ref name=franks>[http://www.nwherald.com/articles/2009/06/17/r_movycqqaqvycuq23gwwbsq/index.xml ''Northwest Herald'', "Johnsburg residents question funding source for SSA appeal case", June 19, 2009]</ref>

Current state law allows municipalities to create special service areas, or SSAs.  SSAs can generate funding to build infrastructure projects that are intended to benefit a geographical area that is less than borders of a municipality.  This can include sewer projects, street repairs and so on.

Line 50: Line 130:
 
Althoff's legislation would instead require the municipality that wants to impose the tax to hold a vote before they impose the tax, rather than putting the burden of collecting signatures on those who oppose the tax.  According to co-sponsor [[Jack D. Franks]], SB 1555 "would require the people who are trying to raise taxes on the citizens to prove that 51 percent of the people want their taxes raised."<ref name=franks/>

Tax legislation

In 2009, Althoff co-sponsored Senate Bill 1555. SB 1555 would alter the way that taxes are imposed in Special Service Areas throughout the state.[2]

Current state law allows municipalities to create special service areas, or SSAs. SSAs can generate funding to build infrastructure projects that are intended to benefit a geographical area that is less than borders of a municipality. This can include sewer projects, street repairs and so on.

Property owners located within an SSAs pay more on their property taxes for a set period (usually 20 years) until bonds issued to pay for the project are repaid. Residents can stop a town or county from imposing an SSA by collecting signatures on a petition from 51% of the area's property owners of record and 51% of the registered voters within the SSA.

Althoff's legislation would instead require the municipality that wants to impose the tax to hold a vote before they impose the tax, rather than putting the burden of collecting signatures on those who oppose the tax. According to co-sponsor Jack D. Franks, SB 1555 "would require the people who are trying to raise taxes on the citizens to prove that 51 percent of the people want their taxes raised."[2]
