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.
It’s so often a lack of information that keeps us from getting involved. The Foundation is doing for the public what many could not do for themselves. Anytime that we’re given the truth, people can make good decisions.
