BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The state's new debt collection office won't be trying to recover dollars from two dozen non-governmental organizations that received tax money from lawmakers and didn't file financial reports with the state.
As La. Republicans and Democrats continue to discuss whether to get rid of the state income tax, just how much would it cost to make that happen, if it were phased-out over a ten-year period, like La. Gov. Bobby Jindal wants?
When La. Gov. Bobby Jindal's office first released their ideas for tax reform, officials said the state sales tax would increase from 4 percent to 5.88 percent as the state income tax would be eliminated. Now, make that 6.25 percent.
Another government watchdog group has come out with their thoughts on Gov. Jindal’s tax reform plan, questioning whether it should be fully implemented on January 1st, if passed by the Louisiana Legislature, and the effects if this plan is not revenue neutral like the Governor’s office has proposed.
The Public Affairs Research Council of Louisiana (PAR) and La. Department of Revenue Secretary Tim Barfield, La. Gov. Bobby Jindal's point man on his tax proposal, are at odds over whether the tax swap proposal is revenue neutral, as advertised.
