Casey Cagle on Tax Reform
Businesses and families flourish when tax burden is low
Businesses and families flourish when government provides only what our citizens truly need, keeping our tax burden low. Georgia ranks as one of the lowest taxing states in the country, but we must continue to fight to keep taxes low.
In recent years, the State Senate, under Casey Cagle's leadership, has passed groundbreaking legislation to lower our overall tax burden, eliminate the marriage penalty, and scrap the death tax.
At the local level, numerous steps have been taken to require local governments to fairly assess property so that homeowners are not treated unfairly.
However, there is more work to be done.
Lt. Governor Cagle has pledged to continue the fight for fairer, simpler taxes, and will fight for broad reform of Georgia's tax laws in the future.

Slash $100 million in taxes, without cutting core services
Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle launched his campaign for governor with a pledge to slash $100 million in taxes in his opening months. He would pursue his tax cut in his first legislative session as governor by
increasing the amount that Georgians can deduct from their income tax returns. His proposal would call for the first $12,000 of taxable income for a family of four to be tax-exempt and an increase in standard deductions as well.
On cutting taxes without cutting core services, Cagle said, "I will be a governor that will make certain that government is more efficient and effective and responsible to the citizens.
We will save more money for the state, and we'll be able to return more to the taxpayers and make the strategic investments."
