Click here to call Representative Burke
Hello my name is __________. I am calling to urge Representative Burke to support House Bill 5065. This legislation would prohibit local governments from assessing additional local taxes on video gaming.
The so-called penny push tax will hurt businesses and hurt consumers. It will chip away at an industry that has been a great addition to my business. I do not want my customers to lose interest in the machines we have at our facilities simply because the Village of Oak Lawn mistakenly thinks they deserve more tax revenue from video gaming. My business is a net positive for Oak Lawn. I sincerely fear my customers will go elsewhere to play in communities that do not have punitive taxes that drive down payouts. This will hurt my business.
Please stop the Player Push Tax by supporting House Bill 6065. Thank you.
