“We’re proud to partner with Governor Lee and the General Assembly to provide tax relief for Tennessee businesses and families, while also laying a firm foundation for continued economic growth in Tennessee,” said Department of Revenue Commissioner David Gerregano.
Gov. Lee appreciates the support of the General Assembly to continue our state’s history of strong fiscal stewardship and savings for Tennessee taxpayers:
“In Tennessee we are committed to low taxes. We believe that Tennessee businesses and citizens are in the best position to decide how to spend their own money, and these tax-cuts demonstrate that we practice what we preach,” said Senate Majority Leader Jack Johnson. “I applaud Governor Lee for this bold measure to provide more growth opportunities for businesses and financial relief for families on everyday expenses. We are proud to be one of the lowest taxed states in the nation, and this move to further cut taxes strengthens our dedication to being a pro-business and pro-family state with low taxes.”
“We believe Tennesseans know best how to spend their own money,” said House Majority Leader William Lamberth. “These historic tax cuts mean more money for our citizens to invest, spend and save. It provides meaningful reforms that further solidify Tennessee’s standing as the most well-managed, fiscally stable state in the nation where families and businesses thrive.”
