Arizona lawmakers to tackle income-tax overhaul

PHOENIX -- A special committee, including members of the Arizona Legislature, has been appointed to examine how the state's income-tax system could be overhauled to make it simpler and more fair and transparent.

The task force appointed late last week by Speaker Andy Tobin and Senate President Andy Biggs will meet about twice a month beginning Wednesday. It will be tasked with taking testimony and coming up with policy recommendations that could be used to draft legislation for consideration next year.

Members include House and Senate lawmakers from both major political parties and representatives from business and tax-advocacy groups.

The Republican-controlled Legislature overhauled the state's sales tax collection system to make it simpler for businesses in the session that ended in June. Lawmakers also have enacted numerous business tax breaks recent years.
