Update on Mississippi Income Tax Repeal Bill

March 16, 2021

The Senate, on March 16, refused to consider House Bill 1439, the Mississippi Tax Freedom Act, which killed it due to a legislative deadline. Many senators said the House proposal was rushed and needs more vetting this summer. The House salvaged its 317-page proposal by inserting the language into a separate bill, the SB 2971 bond bill, which remains under consideration heading into the session’s final weeks.

Some senators are advocating for a legislative study committee to meet this summer and agree on a revised tax cut plan that could be approved in 2022. Forming such a joint legislative committee that meets this summer would require passing a resolution this session.
