BacktoSchool TaxHoliday 2022 FBWAUKEGAN – Illinois will institute a 10-day tax holiday on school supplies, and working families and teachers can expect to have reduced shopping costs ahead of the upcoming school year, State Senator Adriane Johnson announced.

“To offer support to our working parents, guardians and teachers in Illinois, lowering the tax rate on school supplies removes a burden when preparing for the academic year,” said Johnson (D-Buffalo Grove). “Instituting a tax holiday will help relieve Illinois families and educators of some financial costs in order to ensure students are prepared for the upcoming school year.”

The law lowers the state tax rate on school supplies and eligible clothes and footwear from 6.25% down to 1.25% for 10 days from Aug. 5 to Aug. 14, 2022.

“I encourage residents to look primarily at locally-owned businesses when deciding where to shop in our communities,” said Johnson.

Public Act 102-0700 took effect with the governor’s signature on April 19, 2022 and was fully implemented with the Fiscal Year 2023 state budget on July 1, 2022.

021622CM0382WAUKEGAN – In response to the uptick in violent crimes reported across Lake County, State Senator Adriane Johnson (D-Buffalo Grove) released the following statement:

“In areas throughout the 30th District, gun violence is a life-shattering, yet prevalent, concern for many. With reports of shootings on a near daily basis, my heart is heavy for the families who suffer for the rest of their lives from losing a loved one due to a formidable tragedy.

“Our communities deserve better than this. To assist in this uphill battle, I helped secure $500,000 in state investments to support the Lake County State’s Attorney’s gun violence prevention pilot program as well as a combined $5 million for local governments and other community groups. I stand behind this effort to hire violence interrupters to help curb rising rates of reported crime specifically in Waukegan and North Chicago.

“I will work with local officials, community groups and affected families to reduce the gun violence epidemic and offer resources to at-risk youth.”
