Fixing Hawaii’s Tax System; Decrease Taxes for Families, Businesses
Hawaii Together, with host Keli'i Akina and guest Andrey Yushkov
Hawaii’s income tax rates are among the highest in the country, and its business climate is consistently ranked poorly. Meanwhile, residents continue to flee the state for less expensive mainland locales.
Tax reform could be a course change for Hawaii, suggests Andrey Yushkov, Ph.D. Yushkov covers tax policy in his role as a senior policy analyst at the Tax Foundation’s Center for State Tax Policy, based in Washington, D.C.
He joins host Keli'i Akina, president and CEO of the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii, on today’s episode of 'Hawaii Together' to discuss how Hawai'i could reform its income and unemployment taxes and to point out ways in which Hawai'i could improve its business climate.
