I Support the Montana Republican Platform Statement on this issue:  “Federal, state and

local taxes should be low, broad-based and easily understood.” 


Goals for the upcoming session:


-Currently Montana has a 6.9% rate on State Income Taxes.  With Wyoming and

South Dakota at 0% and North Dakota at 3.9%, we can do better to help attract

investors.  We must also work to simplify the Montana income tax code so that it

will be easier for average people to file.

-I will also continue to support all forms of tax relief (property tax, income tax, business

equipment tax) and work to get the surplus back to the taxpayers that overpaid.
