Congress may have skipped tax policy this year, but the states have been busy. To get an idea of where things stand both good and bad, we talked to Jared Walczak, Vice President of State Projects at the Tax Foundation and one of the more active players in this space. Our conversation starts with the wealth taxes several states have proposed in recent months, the important but ignored Antio case moving through the Washington State courts (look out investors!), and a quick review of the record number of states implementing rate cuts reforms this year (go states!). We close by discussing some of the more bizarre state-level taxes that are still on the books.
