- Tax Analysts Interview on Connection between Taxes & Migration:
William Freeland of the American Legislative Exchange Council said his group and others acknowledge that taxes are not the only driver of state-to-state migration. But he said to ALEC and others, their indirect effect is clear.“Taxes matter to growth,” Freeland said. “Growth matters to migration. Ergo, taxes indirectly matter to migration. People do move to find a better job, and there are huge discrepancies between high tax states and low tax states. Low tax states tend to offer the better opportunities.
- Tax Analysts Interview on Illinois Tax Policy:
William Freeland, a research analyst at the American Legislative Exchange Council’s Center for State Fiscal Reform, said in his testimony that Illinois should not be picking “winners and losers” by awarding targeted tax breaks “There is no way to know what industries and businesses will lead to future hiring and wage growth,” Freeland said. “By exempting some people, firms or industries from higher marginal rates, all the state does is to raise the rate of taxation for all those who don’t qualify for the incentives.”
