State tax systems are in trouble. Revenue collecting methods developed more than a half-century ago are straining to deal with 21st century economies. Globalization and e-commerce are changing how people work and shop, devolution has shifted responsibility from the federal government to the states, and tax incentives have become the weapon of choice in the battle for business. All this, as antitax messages have become a campaign staple, has made creating tax policy more challenging than ever. In the updated third edition of State Tax Policy: A Political Perspective, David Brunori analyzes these and other critical challenges facing state governments.

From the Inside Flap:

"David Brunori has filled a critical gap in the state tax literature with his insightful discussion of political perspectives on state tax policy. His analysis displays a profound understanding of the fundamental forces shaping state fiscal policy in the 21st century. Moreover, his formidable technical knowledge of state tax regimes enables him to examine the key political issues in a concrete and pragmatic manner. His book should be required reading for anyone concerned with state tax policy--including state legislative and executive branch personnel and state tax professionals." ---Walter Hellerstein, Francis Shackelford Professor of Taxation, University of Georgia School of Law "David Brunori provides a timely guide to the tax policy issues that challenge state government finances. The major state taxes evolved in a vastly different economic and political environment from that of the 21st century, and their suitability and productivity are under great pressure. Brunori's excellent road map to both the challenges and their resolution should be read by lawmakers and anyone concerned with the future of American government finances." ---John Mikesell, School of Public and Environmental Affairs, Indiana University "David Brunori's State Tax Policy: A Political Perspective is an invaluable tool for analysts interested in state tax and budget issues. It is especially useful for those who...are interested in how issues in their state compare with events in other states." ---J. Fred Giertz, Professor of Economics, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign "David Brunori has produced another work destined to be a classic. Practitioners, scholars, and policymakers involved in state taxation will find this easy-to-read volume indispensable. No single work addresses the political and policy issues that arise when state governments raise revenue as well as this volume." --Oswald Graham, Editor in Chief, State Tax Publications, Tax Analysts
