Abstract/ Summary

This paper discussed three major issues, with the goal of clarifying the characteristics of LD 1495, the tax reform package that will be either upheld or repealed in June: 1) the features of “good” state tax systems; 2) the characteristics and limitations of Maine’s current tax system, and 3) the features, changes and implications of the new law. Finally, a range of taxation policy recommendations were discussed.
