The Tax Foundation’s 2014 edition of the State Business Tax Climate Index enables business leaders, government policymakers, and taxpayers to gauge how their states’ tax systems compare. Georgia ranks 32nd highest, scoring in the top ten in the corporate tax category, but in the bottom ten in the individual income tax category.
North Carolina, currently ranked 44th, is projected to move to as high as 17th as their recent tax reforms take effect. Florida is ranked 5th, South Carolina 37th, Alabama 21st and Tennessee 15th.
The Georgia Public Policy Foundation is our state’s leading organization promoting government transparency. The Secretary of State’s office shares the Foundation’s commitment to transparency and responsible stewardship of taxpayer dollars, which is why our agency was the first in Georgia to publish its budget and spending data on a public transparency website.
