State Tax Cut Roundup 2017

by Jonathan Williams, Joel Griffith, Elliot Young, Thurston Powers & Christine Smith

Introduction

The 2017 legislative session ended with nine states enacting changes to their tax codes sufficient to qualify for State Tax Cut Roundup. Each state provided substantial tax relief for their citizens. Pro-growth tax reform was a key theme, as states took steps to both improve budget gaps and improve their economic competitiveness. Rich States, Poor States: ALEC-Laffer State Economic Competitiveness Index illustrates how certain tax and fiscal policies lead states to prosper and others to fall behind. Fortunately, state legislators are heeding this message. The number of states enacting new tax relief legislation during the 2017 session totaled nine, which is equal to the number of states that qualified during the 2016 session.
