All that is going on is the state legislators are going to fix it where that there will never be a state income tax . Most states have a state income tax to go along with the federal income tax . Kentucky has a state income tax and yes their sales tax is less than the state of Tennessee but if you add the income tax to the sales tax you pay more in taxes in Kentucky just using that as an example

What the Senate just did is to vote to put the question of banning the state income tax in our constitution to a vote of the people. There are some people who say it is already unconstitutional to propose a state income tax yet these idiots are the first to push one. This will put a stop to a state income tax once voted on next year once and for all.

We need to do away with the sales tax and replace it with an income tax.

Income tax punishes employed state residents only. Sales tax gets people from the other 49 states + all the international tourists in addition to the fine folks of TN.

Your logic is flawed

Income tax punishes only the working residents of the state they are employed.

Sales tax gets tourists, employed, unemployed , citizens, non-citizens, legal&illegal aliens.

In short... sales tax gets everyone.

Your logic is flawed

Are you crazy? This would put more burden on those of us who work abd less on the lazy ass people that live off welfare. You need to look at the big picture. But the again you might be one of the dumb asses that refuse to work. Have a good day

Wrong you all. The sales tax disproportionally hurts the poor while doesn't hardly phase the rich. The income tax is more fair as the rich pay their fair share.
