The LePage Tax Cut Plan is a bold initiative to make Maine a more attractive place for young families, retirees, veterans and job creators. This plan will:
• Cut the tax burden by $300 million for Mainers.
• Make Maine competitive again, nationally and globally.
• Drive prosperity for decades to come for all Mainers.
• Reduce the income tax by 40% since the start of the LePage Administration.
• Propel Maine’s national ranking from 33rd to 23rd in terms of tax climate.
• Attract good-paying jobs so our children can stay, work, prosper and raise their children in Maine.
