State tax systems are in trouble. Revenue collecting methods developed more than a half-century ago are facing the strain of dealing with 21st century economies. Globalization and e-commerce are changing the way people work and purchase goods, devolution has steadily shifted responsibility from the federal government to the states, and tax incentives have become the weapon of choice in the battle to attract business investment. All this, in an environment where antitax messages have become a staple of political campaigns, has made creating tax policy more challenging than ever before. In State Tax Policy: A Political Perspective, Second Edition, David Brunori analyzes these and other critical challenges facing state governments. He identifies the important issues and examines possible solutions in formulating and implementing state tax policy. The new edition is updated to reflect five years of legislative changes. The first edition was named an "Outstanding Academic Book of the Year" by Choice magazine.
