"No citizen should ever have to pay to figure out how much tax they owe ." (Richard Weisser 2013)
Seven states do not do it all all. Two other states do not tax wages. In reality, a state can fiscally survive without an income tax.
It is true that if State Income Taxes were eliminated, the lost revenue would have to be generated from other sources. But think about this:
There is a large underground cash economy that pays no income tax at all. In many cases, not only do these evaders benefit from paying no income taxes, but they also are an additional drain on government services that are income dependent.

There is also a cost for compliance associated with the Georgia Income Tax Codes. Year after year taxpayers pay to have their tax Georgia Income Tax returns prepared.
Additionally, there is a burden placed on the state to verify records and to audit taxpayers. These funds could be used for education or our beleaguered state parks.
Where would the lost revenue be offset? Consumption taxes would lead the way with an additional 2% sales tax.
Also, the Ga State Transfer Tax on Real Property could be raised from the current ling-standing low rate of one dollar per thousand to three dollars per thousand.
Wage-earners need to be rewarded for their hard work, and not punished for it. By letting workers take home more in the paychecks every week the ecomomy could be instantly stimulated!
