Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a top Republican contender for president in 2016, called for the elimination of Louisiana’s income and corporate taxes Thursday, the Times-Picayune reports. Jindal wants to make up the income by raising sales taxes.
“We are meeting with every legislator over the coming weeks to discuss the details of the tax reform plan,” Jindal said in a statement. “Our goal is to eliminate all personal income tax and all corporate income tax in a revenue neutral manner. We want to keep the sales tax as low and flat as possible.”
