Right now, Mississippi’s budget has a stonking surplus of almost $1 billion – We can afford to Axe the Tax! Rather than wait for politicians to figure out ways of spending the surplus, let’s give taxpayers something back by allowing workers to keep more of what they earn.
Ronald Reagan once said, “Government does not tax to get the money it needs; government always finds a need for the money it gets.” If we don’t abolish the state income tax, state officials will soon find a need to spend that surplus.
As Mississippi’s leading free market advocacy organization, we have launched the Axe the Tax campaign to make the case for change. We are highlighting to hundreds of thousands of Mississippians the argument in favor of abolishing the income tax:
We believe that there is common ground for an agreement to abolish the state income tax, using a combination of the budget surplus, and future growth in tax revenues to scrap the tax. And we will be popularizing the case for change in 2022!
