Louisiana - Governor calls for state income tax phase-out

On April 8, 2013, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal decided to ‘park’ his tax plan, which originally called for: (1) eliminating what he referred to as ‘loopholes’ in the corporation income tax, (2) broadening the state sales tax base, and (3) raising the state sales tax rate. In lieu of his original plan, the governor called on the Louisiana Legislature to phase out the personal and corporation state income tax. [Governor Jindal press release (4/8/13)]
