The South Carolina Chamber of Commerce is encouraging state lawmakers to reform the tax code this legislative session.
“It’s not a code that was developed intentionally,” President and CEO Ted Pitts said. “It’s been piecemealed together over decades. We’d like to take an approach to tax reform that looks at the tax code holistically and tries to address some of the issues that lie inside it.”
Among their objectives: analyze the state’s tax system at the state and local level, identify issues that need reform to foster business growth and economic prosperity, and develop recommendations to make South Carolina’s tax code more competitive for workers and businesses.
