Taxing Workers Deeper into Poverty

Despite our 2006 tax reform -- an increase in the income tax threshold from $4,600 to $12,600 for a family of four -- Alabama continues to tax low-income people deeper into poverty. ACPP supports a further increase of the threshold to the poverty line, indexed for inflation; removal of the state's 4 percent sales tax on groceries; and elimination of the state deduction for federal income taxes paid.
