In 1977, Tobin led the first successful property tax strike in modern Illinois history.

In the past four decades, TUA has been victorious in defeating 423 tax-increase referenda, stopping 19 state income tax hikes, and defeating every attempt to enact a graduated state income tax in Illinois since 1992.

Tax Policy across America

TUA’s leadership and members were instrumental in repealing the Medicare Catastrophic Coverage Act of 1988, legislation that increased taxes on all senior citizens, which was the first time a major federal entitlement had ever been repealed.

All combined, TUA has saved local, state, and federal taxpayers more than $200 billion of their hard-earned money since 1976.
