Fraud Plagued System To Redistribute AR Wealth – SB2

Senator Jim Hendren (a governor wannabe who runs as a Republican) is back again with his bill to redistribute wealth among Arkansans. The system is called the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). It is modeled on a federal provision that redistributes wealth and is known to be such a bad system the federal government has lost BILLIONS in mistaken or fraudulent claims. Although the word “earned” is used in the name, there is nothing “earned” about it. The income tax credit doesn…

Cut taxes for New Residents? Wonder Why?

Governor Asa Hutchinson wants to give income tax breaks to people who move to Arkansas.[i] This means keeping your taxes higher to give tax breaks to new residents for five years after they come. Arkansas has one of the highest tax burdens in the nation, yet Governor Hutchinson prefers to give tax breaks to new residents. Why? First, how bad are Arkansas taxes?

Pay More for AR Legislator Benefits?

The very first Concurrent Resolution filed for the session of the Arkansas legislature beginning in January wants federal benefits for legislators and for taxpayers to pay more in support of those benefits. Senate Concurrent Resolution 1 was filed by Senator Larry Teague, a Democrat. We suspect SCR 1 is something most Arkansas legislators want passed. We would not be surprised if Senator Teague is carrying the bill because someone in the Republican super majority said, “…

Asa Hutchinson, Joe Biden, & China

The Trump administration has been trying to stop communist China’s efforts to influence state politicians, like Governor Asa Hutchinson.  Is it any wonder that  it was Hutchinson who became one of the first Republicans to urge President Trump to work with Joe Biden on a transition?

Tax Cut From Arkansas Republican Super Majority?

The outlook for the Republican super majority in the Arkansas legislature to pass a tax cut in 2021 should be good. By “tax cut” we do not mean cutting one tax while raising other taxes, as has been the pattern in recent years.

By “tax cut” we mean the total tax law changes in 2021 are likely to result in a reduction of the tax burden on Arkansans. It is long overdo. WHY DO WE THIN…
