Kentuckians are worth the investments for good jobs, clean air and water, quality educations, and healthy, vibrant    communities.  This Kentucky is possible, but we need to reform our state taxes.  This summer is a great opportunity to ultimately win tax reforms that improve the quality of life in Kentucky.  A Blue Ribbon Commission on Tax Reform has been appointed to study and build consensus around tax reforms that meet the guidelines of fairness, competitiveness, simplicity and compliance, elasticity and adequacy.  As part of the process, the Commission will be holding Public Meetings across Kentucky. Everyday Kentuckians are invited to share their best ideas about needed state tax reforms--ideas that will shape the Commission's recommendations for the 2013 General Assembly.

This Web Workshop will help folks prepare for the Public Meetings.  We'll review the big picture: Kentucky's budget landscape, how our tax structure impacts people across income levels, and some of the current conversations, both good and bad. Then we'll work on developing and refining statements that you can offer through the webpage, in your local paper, or at the public meeting nearest you.

If you have any questions, call Jessica at 859.533.0613.
