Overhauling Georgia’s tax code is the subject of a public hearing Thursday in Macon.

The discussion is part of a statewide tour by the “Special Council on Tax Reform and Fairness for Georgians.”

The state legislature created the group and charged its members with formulating tax reform recommendations by January 2011.

The council says it’s reviewing all forms of taxation, except the ad valorem tax.

Governor Sonny Perdue is on the panel and he has mentioned the possibility of abolishing the state’s income tax.

Thursday's meeting is from 4 PM to 7 PM at Macon State College in the Professional Sciences Conference Center Banquet Hall.
