Arizona Republicans are working on a tax plan that is shaping up to be the model for states looking to reduce and eliminate their income taxes.
Over the past decade, millions of people and jobs have moved out of high-tax states, such as New York and California, and into Florida, Tennessee, Texas and the five other states that do not impose income taxes. The flexibility to work remotely will only amplify this trend.
In order to compete for that investment, key lawmakers in several states — including Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves and House Speaker Philip Gunn, New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu, West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice and Arkansas Lt. Gov. Tim Griffin — are looking to put their income taxes on the path to zero.
