Lawmakers considering when it comes to taxes, what is ?fair'?

Friday, April 5, 2013

Fairness is not the only factor that should be considered when crafting tax policy, experts say.

“You have principles of good taxation,” St. Thomas professor John Spry said. “Sometimes they're in conflict, and sometimes they're not in conflict.”

He said that other than fairness, lawmakers need to consider how taxes affect the state's competitiveness, financial stability and economic growth.
