The Mississippi Tax Freedom Act
Some members of the House are calling it a historic day for tax policy in Mississippi
The House approved a plan to phase out the state’s income tax within 10 years. Lawmakers say it will return $1.9 billion to the pockets of Mississippians. Gov. Reeves says he finds parts of the bill troublesome. Measures to eliminate the state’s “pink tax” died in both chambers. Anti-hazing policies for colleges and universities are moving through the legislature.
