Statement Of U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander Regarding Legislation To Deduct Sales Tax Payments

Posted on February 14, 2003

"I strongly support giving Tennesseans the right to deduct their sales tax payments from their federal income tax bill. "This is a matter of simple fairness since citizens in other states are allowed to deduct their state income tax payments. "I will work with Rep. Marsha Blackburn and members of the House and Senate to accomplish this and change the law."
