Recent State Tax Policy Research from the Tax Foundation
August 3, 2009
Some of our recent state coverage is getting quite a bit of media attention (such as here, here, here, here, here, and here). Our new edition of the Facts & Figures handbook was released this week, a first for us but necessary given the number and significance of state tax changes that have occurred since January 1, 2009. Check that out here.
- This report reviews tax changes at the state level since January, including the states that have raised and cut income taxes and sales taxes.
- This report on Hawaii details their now-highest income tax in the country (tied with Oregon), and discusses the “millionaires’ tax” phenomenon.
- This report on Oregon looks at their tied-for-highest-income-tax in the country and the prospects for a referendum repealing those changes.
- This report looks at Maine’s tax reform, broadening bases and cutting tax rates. It too may be challenged at the ballot.
- This report looks at California’s reform proposals, while this one looks at their current mess.
- This report looks at state budgets generally, and how the current time of shortfalls is an opportunity for fundamental tax reform.
- Here are blogs about state tax policy.
