The Taxation Committee of the Legislature is holding a series of sub-committee meetings this fall to discuss another effort aimed at reforming Maine's tax system. The sub-committee has invited a number of academics, business people, accountants, economists, lawyers and other "experts" to give perspectives on what tax reform should look like. The major themes being discussed include reducing the top Maine income tax rate, broadening the sales tax base by eliminating exemptions and exclusions, tax simplification, tax fairness, tax volatility and related topics. Pierce Atwood is closely monitoring these discussions. If you have questions, please contact Jon Block or Andrea Maker.
