NFIB State Director Dawn Starns McVea released the following statement today in response House Speaker Philip Gunn’s comments on eliminating the state income tax:
“Our members are behind this 100%. Most small businesses are organized as pass-through entities, meaning they pay taxes at the individual rate rather than the corporate rate. Eliminating the personal income tax would provide much-needed financial relief to small business owners struggling to recover from the economic crisis created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We look forward to working with Speaker Gunn to advance this landmark legislation.”
