Group works to change Illinois' tax system

SPRINGFIELD -- If you think you're paying too much for taxes, you're not alone. The group, A Better Illinois, thinks it's time to change the Illinois tax system from the flat rate in use to a graduated rate.

Basically, the more money you make, the more you pay. Group leaders say most people would pay less, but the state would still bring in more money than it currently does.

More than 60 lawmakers have signed onto the idea so far, but there are no specific tax rates laid out under the proposal yet.
