Local lawmakers say they want more information about Gov. Bobby Jindal's proposal to abolish state income taxes in exchange for raising the state sales tax.
Jindal's plan would eliminate both personal and corporate income taxes, which, according to Jindal, discourage businesses from locating in the state. Abolishing the taxes would put more money in the pockets of Louisiana residents and businesses, Jindal said.
To offset the loss of revenues by abolishing income taxes, Jindal proposes to raise the state sales tax by at least two cents. The state currently levies a four-cent sales tax.
