Posted on 01/25/2013 7:38:38 PM PST by Fred
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman, and Kansas Governor Sam Brownback have all called for their states to eliminate their income tax and replace it with a sales tax over the past week. They were joined yesterday morning by North Carolina, where the Senate President Pro Tempore, Phil Berger, confirmed the legislature and the Governor, Pat McCrory, would pursue serious tax reform this session. Indeed, a senate proposal being crafted into legislation includes a repeal of North Carolinas personal and corporate income taxes along with an expanded sales tax.
If North Carolina, Louisiana, and Nebraska are successful in eliminating state income taxes, they could provide the momentum for a nationwide trend.

It's the law.
In deliberation, the jury asked the judge for a copy of the law Harrell was being tried for breaking, but the judge would not supply it. When they found that certain evidence admitted into the record during the trial by the defense was missing, they requested it of the judge and were again denied. They acquitted Harrell on all counts. Even though the parties were in state court and the official charge was “failure to file” state income tax returns, the case was really about the legal requirement to file a federal income tax return because, like most states, Illinois’ law mandates the filing of a state income tax return if the Illinois resident is required to file a federal income tax return. Harrell’s case is cited as PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS vs. GAYLON L. HARRELL, Case Number 97CF89 in the Circuit Court of the Twentieth Judicial Circuit, St. Clair County, Illinois.
Because a lot of people have fallen through the cracks and don't have enough income to tax. But they still have to buy stuff, so we'll get them there.
It’s a ripping, gutting race in the red states to generate recovery.
Needs to happen in Washington.
The evisceration/elimination of multiple agencies at the fed level is a recurring dream of mine.
it will only make an impact if the states shelter the corporations from the federal income tax bandits. they rip the funds from the states and redistribute the money to the politically favored
at no point in time does it benefit the state to allow the fedgov to loot its corporations. banks lose capital, people lose jobs, companies lose stability, and banks have less to loan out locally
Not a solution for states that have both. Unfortunately.
They’d just bump up the existing sales tax astronomically.
