State Taxes and the Family--An Update. State Fiscal Brief No. 46.
Liebschutz, David S.
Although 1997 saw many states enact tax cuts affecting families, 1997 cannot be characterized as a significant year for state tax relief for "poor" families. However, some states did make changes that will help the poor. These changes include: enactment of earned income tax credits (EITC) in two states (Massachusetts and Oregon), income tax changes in six states (Arizona, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Nebraska, and Wisconsin), sales tax changes in four states (Louisiana, Missouri, North Carolina, and New York), property tax changes in four states (Indiana, Minnesota, New York, and Texas), and dependent care deductions in three states (Massachusetts, Michigan, and Oregon). These provisions, as they affect the poor, are discussed in this Brief. (RJM)
