The Tax Foundation writes:
“While taxes are a fact of life, not all tax systems are created equal. States should strive to create tax systems that have a broad base and a low rate. Ultimately, that means that states must strive for tax systems that are economically neutral— systems that do not favor one economic activity over another—and systems that promote economic growth by avoiding excessive taxes on business activities and keeping the cost of complying with the tax system as low as possible.
In a highly competitive global market, states need to make their tax systems friendly to business in order to facilitate the expansion and growth of business. A simple tax system that is fair to all businesses is the best way for states to have a competitive business tax climate.”
