State Lawmakers Push for Tax Law Overhaul
Bryant says he wants to cut taxes for Mississippians who earn less than $53,000 a year as part of his 2016 budget proposal. The tax cut would average $250 a year to those who are eligible. State Representative Scott DeLano says Mississippi is a poor state that would benefit from an entire rewriting of state tax laws.
DeLano says, “Tax cuts are always very nice and very politically popular in an election year. However, I think what the State of Mississippi needs is a wholesale look at their tax code and that’s not going to be done in this legislative session.”
Representative DeLano says he would like to see a rewrite of the tax law within the next two or three years, a rewrite that would benefit all Mississippians rather than a select few.
