Report: Georgia levies some of highest income taxes on the working poor

GBPI Executive Director Alan Essig discusses the findings from a recent report, The Impact of State Income Taxes on Low-Income Families in 2011, by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities with WABE Reporter Michelle Writh:

“The report highlights the need for action. Georgia should help the working poor by enacting an earned income tax credit. It’s something that encourages work. It’s something that puts more money back into the pocket of folks who are more apt to spend it.”
