mericans in search of economic freedom and opportunity are flocking to Florida, Tennessee and Texas, and at least part of the attraction is that these three states, along with six others (Alaska, Nevada, South Dakota, Washington, Wyoming and New Hampshire), don’t levy an income tax.
Other states may soon follow.
“There are 10 states that are in the process of moving their personal income tax to zero,” President of Americans for Tax Reform Grover Norquist said on the John Solomon Reports podcast.
“North Carolina is a few years away from having zero income tax,” said the longtime tax reduction activist. “New Hampshire will have zero income tax — they’re getting rid of their tax on dividends and interest over the next three years.”
North Dakota is another state on its way to phasing out the income tax. North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum announced a plan in August of 2022 to eliminate individual income taxes in order to save the state’s taxpayers $250 million per year.
“Now is the right time to provide meaningful, permanent tax relief to make our state a more attractive place to work and a more affordable place to live,” Burgum said in August. “Under this proposal, almost 60% of taxpayers won’t have to pay state income tax, and those who do will see their income tax liability reduced by roughly one-quarter to one-half, allowing North Dakotans to keep more of their hard-earned money to offset expenses and invest in their families and communities.”
