As governor, I will lead on tax and regulatory reform. My first initiative as Governor will be to establish an economic development liaison that will work with companies large and small to streamline the permitting process for companies to get up and going quickly and create jobs.
We will cut taxes by $100 million in the first 100 days of my administration. We will achieve this by increasing the personal exemption so, for a family of four, the first $12,000 of income will be tax exempt. In addition, we will increase the standard deduction. We will also tie both the personal exemption and the standard deduction to inflation to protect every Georgian against surprise increases that rob families at tax season.
