Joe Visconti on Tax Reform

 

 


Phase out sales tax, then tackle income and corporate tax

A sales tax is one of the most regressive forms of taxation, placing a disproportionate burden on lower income families.

Phase out the estate tax for individuals

Our estate tax drives out the very people who hold tax-generating assets and wealth acquired over a lifetime. As governor, Joe plans to
  • Phase out the estate tax to provide seniors with the peace of mind that they can retire in Connecticut near their family and friends.
  • Implement a means tested freeze on local property taxes for seniors.
  • The state would offset this tax reduction with the additional tax revenue on the additional investments held in this state.
