Haley Barbour on Tax Reform

Republican MS Governor


Commission to study state tax code & then cut taxes

I have appointed a blue ribbon commission to study Mississippi's tax code on a comprehensive basis, including how the federal and local tax structures affect our citizens and businesses. The commission's work will give a much more accurate and clearer picture of the tax system under which our taxpayers labor than we've had in the past. We'll get this report by the end of August. Nothing is off the table; though I hasten to add, my goal is to put a net tax cut in place during my term.

I am against raising anybody's taxes

I am against raising anybody's taxes. Mississippi already has the highest state and local taxes in the South. My old boss Ronald Reagan was right: to raise taxes while government is on a spending binge is only feeding the beast
