Indiana has one of the most regressive tax systems in the nation: it asks low- and middle-class households to contribute a larger share of their income than the state’s richest households to fund state services that benefit all. Deep and permanent income tax cuts will ultimately necessitate either tax increases in other less equitable ways or cuts to public services – likely both.
