Georgia’s tax system has not had a substantive update/reform in over thirty years. It is time to look at this issue and give serious consideration to a Fair Tax for Georgia. I am a strong supporter of the national Fair Tax and believe our current system is out of control, confusing, and burdensome. In Georgia, we need to pass comprehensive tax reform that eliminates the income tax on businesses and families and replace it with a fairer, simpler sales tax that would encourage growth, benefit families and businesses and ensure that everyone is paying into the system, including illegal immigrants.
