South Carolina’s tax system is unfair, unstable and uncompetitive. The highest rates in the Southeast, complexity and special interest giveaways leave the little guy or gal footing more and more of the bill. Meanwhile, state and local spending grow unchecked.


Let’s pair budget reforms with a new tax code that creates fairness for hardworking South Carolina citizens. This would provide stability to fund essential government services and spur economic growth that will create the jobs and opportunities of tomorrow. States around us are reaping the benefits of the tried and true pro-growth principles of a broad base and lower rates. South Carolina simply can’t afford to get left behind.
