FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The American Conservative Union, Americans for Prosperity - Mississippi, Americans for Tax Reform, Bigger Pie Forum, Empower Mississippi, The Mississippi Center for Public Policy, The National Federation of Independent Business, National Taxpayers Union, and Taxpayers Protection Alliance have sent a letter to the Mississippi Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Speaker of the House of Representatives, and members of the Senate and House of Representatives in support of the repeal of the state's income tax.

The Mississippi Center for Public Policy believes repealing the state income tax would be both a moral and economic good, leading to higher incomes, competitiveness, and prosperity for all Mississippians!

"Mississippi needs a boost," said President & CEO Douglas Carswell. "This coalition has come together to support abolishing the income tax because it’s so important. I hope every conservative in Mississippi will now help make this much needed tax break happen."

"Mississippi stands at a crossroads. With unprecedented revenue surplus and considerable federal dollars at its disposal, policymakers have a unique opportunity to prove that conservative state-based tax and spending reform can work to improve the lives of its citizens," reads the letter. "The Magnolia State can lead boldly in the elimination of the income tax, creating a more competitive environment that attracts new people and capital, increases productivity and grows the economy, and
yields better, higher paying jobs."

Senior Director of Policy & Communications said, "Mississippi has a chance to fundamentally transform its economy with the elimination of the income tax. We are proud to be a part of this conservative coalition fighting for change and are hopeful that the legislation will move forward. We will continue seeking to advance economic liberty as part of our Freedom Agenda for the state.”
