Texas will never have personal income tax with policy

Texas doesn’t have a personal income tax, and Gov. Greg Abbott wants to make sure it never will by adding the ban to the state constitution. Abbott announced the new policy proposal at a Republican rally held in McKinney last week. “Did you know that currently the Texas Constitution allows an income tax to be imposed in the state of Texas?” Abbott asked. “I say that it’s time we amend the Texas Constitution to eliminate the possibility of an income tax.” In 1993, the Texas Constitution was amended to take the power to levy such a tax away from lawmakers and give it to voters; an income tax can only be imposed, Article 8 of the Constitution says, if it’s approved by a majority of registered voters in a statewide referendum and any net revenues must used for the “support of education.” Read stories like this and more in your latest edition of The Ennis News.
