Tax and Budgets

When it comes to public policy issues, very few have more impact on business success and economic growth than taxes and governmental budgets. Decisions about how local, state and federal governments raise revenue and prioritize spending affects business competitiveness, confidence and job creation.

Ideally, tax and expenditure policies should take a balanced approach – providing enough resources to meet the public sector’s necessary obligations and investment, but at the same time promoting business creation and expansion. However, increasing pressure on governmental budgets often leads to discussions about increasing taxes to raise revenue, reducing tax deductions, and/or making dramatic cuts in spending on public programs and assistance.

Below are several resources to help keep you up-to-date on your city and state’s fiscal policies.
