HB 329: Income tax; rate of tax imposed on the taxable net income of individuals; modify

Voted on Wednesday March 1, 2017

John Pezold's thoughts

This legislation amends the code section for the state income tax. It strikes the tax rate model and places a flat 5.4% tax rate for all income levels. It also requires the Dept. of Revenue to publish an inflationary index every year.
The bill also adjusts the personal exemptions and standard deductions and creates an earned income tax credit at 10% of the federal credit, which cannot exceed the taxpayers income tax liability.
