State of Louisiana secondary Archives: on Tax Reform


Bobby Jindal: Overhaul our tax code and eliminate income taxes

One of the biggest obstacles we face in helping more Louisianians find work, bringing more people here, and growing our economy is Louisiana's tax code. Our current tax code is complex, unstable and unfair. Our tax system is unfair and riddled with loopholes and exemptions.

That's why my top priority is to overhaul our tax code and eliminate income taxes. This is our moment to eliminate the income tax and unleash major economic growth and opportunity in our state that will keep our sons and daughters here at home to find jobs and raise a family.

Eliminating income taxes will help make Louisiana the very best place to start a business. This is the best way to grow our economy and create good-paying jobs throughout the state.

Over the last ten years, more than 60% of the 3 million new jobs in America were created by the nine states without an income tax. Over the past decade, states without income taxes have seen nearly 60 percent higher population growth than the national average.
