Arkansas: The Road Map to Tax Reform
Arkansas’s tax system is at a crossroads. After years without meaningful reform, the state seems poised to finally tackle the long-running issues within its tax code. The last several years have seen several ad hoc reforms, but the last comprehensive tax reform was in 1971; the one before that was in 1929.
This book is meant to help Arkansas achieve the goal of true tax reform—reform that benefits all taxpayers by addressing the many long-term hurdles the state faces. It’s meant to start the conversation about what Arkansas does well, but also what it could do better—by recognizing strengths, diagnosing challenges, and prescribing real, workable solutions.
