Is four-cent tax so important?
Our View - Jun 16, 2011
Strange that a four-cent renewal of a cigarette tax would become one of the most important issues in the current legislative session, but that is the way it seems to be going in Baton Rouge.
It is partly politics, of course. Gov. Bobby Jindal doesnít want to go against his promise not to raise taxes and he considers such a renewal to be a raise. So his plan this week was to veto it and expect the leges to uphold it.
State income tax still on the table
Changes would no longer eliminate state corporate income taxes and would not tie the repeal in to action by a study committee.
