Brad Little on Tax Reform

 

 


Proposes the single largest tax cuts in Idaho history

My plan is called "Building Idaho's Future." I am proposing more than $450 million in tax relief. This would be among the single largest tax cuts in Idaho history! To get there, I'm proposing $295 million in one-time tax relief and $160 million in permanent tax cuts to boost Idahoans' prosperity while keeping our tax rates competitive and our business climate vibrant. Curbing government spending and returning taxpayer dollars should be the perpetual mission of public servants.

Budget proposes $35 million in grocery tax relief

One of the staples of conservative governing is to put money back into taxpayers' pockets. I have long supported tax relief for Idahoans on the most basic of needs--groceries. My budget leverages $35 million from the dedicated Tax Relief Fund to provide Idaho families with grocery tax relief without competing against our General Fund priorities.

Inform taxpayers to increase state income tax withholdings

Last year, we delivered one of the largest tax cuts in state history. As a result, state income and business tax rates are the lowest since 1934. Idahoans are enjoying bigger paychecks.

Even though sales tax and corporate tax revenues have been robust, our personal income tax receipts are falling short. The federal tax code changed recently, but few Idahoans know they need to update their tax withholdings. I am ordering the Tax Commission to do all they can to better inform taxpayers of what they need to do to avoid a surprise income tax bill.

My team is following this issue closely, confident revenues will eventually match the rapid pace of economic growth. Though we are confident, in true Idaho fashion, we will not spend money until it's in the bank.

My budget recommendation will balance our books and fulfill important promises. Additionally, any new tax exemption should be tied to a proportional reduction in state spending or real income generation.

Lift tax burden for everyone

Taxes need to be fair, simple, competitive and predictable. As Governor, I will look for ways to lower the tax burden on Idahoans so that economic prosperity can continue in every community across Idaho. We need the lightest possible hand of government in the day to day lives of our citizens and businesses.
