A discussion on tax reform could be on the horizon in Georgia. A Georgia tax code overhaul attempt failed a few years ago. Now, after a legislative session devoid of a broad discussion on taxes, there are signs conservatives plan to push for action next year.
A proposal that would restructure the state’s tax system could require voter approval for some of its structural provisions. Constitutional amendments would be needed to replace local telecommunications franchise fees with a statewide tax on those services and to set up a state fund to offer tax credits to new and growing businesses.
