The Path to a Stronger Commonwealth: Prioritizing Investments in Our Communities Over Tax Breaks for the Powerful

Kentucky faces a choice: cleaning up our tax code of special interest tax breaks so we can invest in excellent schools, a healthy and skilled workforce, modern infrastructure and other building blocks of thriving communities in the Commonwealth; or continuing to allow our tax code to be manipulated for the benefit of just a few, while essential investments fall farther behind. This report explores these two choices and provides direction for the road ahead. Moving forward means raising new revenue to invest in the foundations of thriving communities by cleaning up our tax code, eliminating breaks those at the top have managed to put there. Moving backward means undermining investments in a stronger state by failing to clean up tax breaks and continuing with more tax giveaways for those at the top.
