Taxes and Regulation

High taxes and too much regulation stifle economic growth. Idaho’s tax and regulatory burden is high compared to surrounding states. In fact, we are ranked below all our surrounding states when it comes to the best business tax climate by the Tax Foundation. At a time when so many Idahoans are struggling to pay the bills, Idaho’s families and job creators should not have to forfeit any more of their money to the government. We must reduce tax burdens and eliminate unnecessary regulations, permits, and licenses. We should also finally get rid of the grocery tax that hurts those hardworking Idaho families trying to make ends meet.
