New Podcast: Rhode Island Gov. Donald Carcieri on State Tax Reform
June 23, 2010
Rhode Island Gov. Donald Carcieri (R) recently signed into law sweeping changes to the state’s individual tax system. The reform reduces the state’s top income tax rate from 9.9% to 5.99%, increases the standard deduction and eliminates the optional flat tax. In this week’s podcast, Governor Carcieri discusses the changes with Joseph Henchman, the Tax Foundation’s Tax Counsel and Director of State Projects. “We’ve been beating this drum for several years now,” Carcieri said of the tax reform plan.
