Bringing Tax Reform to Georgia's antiquated and outdated tax code is a priority for me. We must find ways and means to revise our tax policies that allow 2% of our taxpayers to carry 98% of the tax burden. We must seriously look at a balance between property and consumer taxes in order to ensure all residents are contributing their fair share to the general fund. We must insist on documented and verifiable results regarding benefits to our economic posture from those who receive tax credits, eliminations, and exemptions. We must also work to ensure an efficient process is in place to aggressively and timely collect on taxes due the state through business transactions. According to various tax experts and policy sources in 2008, Georgia had an annual estimated $500,000- $ 1,000,000,000 dollars in uncollected tax receipts.
