Louisiana lawmakers seek to get rid of income tax

    Lawmakers in Louisiana are seeking to get rid of the state’s income tax.

    Representative Richard Nelson said that he believes the state’s complex tax structure is holding Louisiana back and may be partially to blame for the state’s dropping population.  Individual income tax in Louisiana accounts for more than $4 billion of the state’s $39 billion budget.  If the income tax is dropped, the funding will need to be made up elsewhere.
