Arizona’s new high income tax from Proposition 208 is bound to discourage new investment, harm thousands of small businesses, and is unconstitutional, two of the state’s leading economic and legal experts told the real estate community last week.

While the tax is intended to provide funding for education, it is flawed in many aspects and will hurt education in the long run if measures aren’t taken to mitigate its impacts, said Jim Rounds, an economist and policy analyst who spoke at a virtual breakfast meeting of the nonprofit Valley Partnership, the voice of the real estate industry in the metro Phoenix region.

“We’re not debating education funding. We’re talking about the best way to fund education,” Rounds of Rounds Consulting in Tempe told a group of more than 175 attendees. “We want to make sure the gains are bigger than the economic losses.”
