Bill Name: AN ACT TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL INCOME TAX RELIEF TO HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD TAXPAYERS WITH TWO (2) OR MORE DEPENDENTS

Sponsor: Duncan Baird (R-95), 479-439-1717, bairdd@arkleg.state.ar.us.

Purpose: To provide additional income tax relief 21 to head of household taxpayers with two (2) or more dependents.  How?  No clue; the bill literally only lists a purpose.  It’s apparently just a placeholder with a vague enough title that any number of tax-cut measures could be shoehorned in later.

Pros for Average Arkansans: Who knows?

Cons for Average Arkansans:  See “Pros.”

Official BHR Position: Oppose as written.
