Thursday Video: Bad State Tax Ideas

August 21, 2008

This video is from the Tax Foundation’s breakfast event in New Orleans last month. Our own Staff Economist Josh Barro discusses options for state tax reform. After describing the Tax Foundation’s State Business Tax Climate Index, Barro outlines three things to avoid for good tax policy: (1) state R&D tax credits, (2) film tax credits, and (3) sales tax holidays. Runs 9 minutes, 19 seconds.
