Jack Markell on Tax Reform

Delaware Democratic Governor

 


Reduce corporate tax to increase competitiveness

It's also time for us to modernize our tax code to promote job creation. I applaud the House of Representatives for passing the Delaware Competes Act, which recognizes that we must change our corporate income tax laws so that Delaware is more competitive--and so that companies have a bigger incentive to expand in our state.

Responsible tax cuts allow for economic growth

The 2012 budget includes prioritized reductions that help industries critical to Delaware's economic core--manufacturing, small business and financial services--promoting job creation and our state's competitiveness.

To stay competitive, build on our existing economic foundation, and create jobs for a workforce that is already trained to work in manufacturing, small businesses, and the financial services industry, we identified reasonable and responsible tax cuts targeted for economic growth.
