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.
Thank you for the great work that the Public Policy Foundation is doing across our state setting a wonderful example. I first ran for the Senate in 1994, and the Foundation was that resource I called upon to be a great help to me as we were articulating positions and formulating public policy initiatives. We appreciate very much your leadership and all that you stand for.
