LOUISIANA GOVERNOR JINDAL ‘OUR GOAL IS TO ELIMINATE ALL PERSONAL INCOME TAX’

The Weekly Standard in Vol. 18, Nr. 18, published an article on Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, a Republican, wanting to reform his state’s tax code. Jindal announced today that his “goal is to eliminate all personal income tax and all corporate income tax.” Excerpts below:

“We are meeting with every legislator over the coming weeks to discuss the details of the tax reform plan. Our goal is to eliminate all personal income tax and all corporate income tax in a revenue neutral manner. We want to keep the sales tax as low and flat as possible,” says Jindal in a statement provided by the Louisiana governor’s office.

“Eliminating personal income taxes will put more money back into the pockets of Louisiana families…

“Tax reform will remove administrative burdens from families and small businesses and improve Louisiana’s business prospects; create more business investment opportunities with increased job growth; and raise the state’s profile in national business rankings.

“The bottom line is that for too long, Louisiana’s workers and small businesses have suffered from having a state tax structure that is too complex and that holds back economic prosperity. It’s time to change that so people can keep more of their own money and foster an environment where businesses want to invest and create good-paying jobs.”

Jindal is thought to be considering a 2016 presidential run.

      Agreed. It will most certainly contribute to the development of Louisiana and it would join a large number of states around the globe that have introduced a flat tax of around 15 percent.

        Yep. Got to stop “feeding The Beast.”

        A low-information, dumbed-down populace provides just the junk-food it needs to rule its subjects as opposed to govern its citizens.

        Cut the purse-strings and it will again understand its proper role.

    This is great to hear, and should be the model for all to follow. Years ago I left my home state of Louisiana because of a lack of jobs but this is encouraging.

    Good luck Governor Jindal!
