It may sound like a “radical” idea, but Iowa may be closer to being able to eliminate the income tax than one may think. It is an idea growing in popularity with legislators it seems.

And one of our readers, Lee, would agree, saying Iowa should abolish state income taxes.

He isn’t alone.

Of course, the income tax isn’t the only tax people want to see addressed. Diane called for reducing property taxes.

Karen seconded the call for lower property taxes while Andrew asked for rax reform.

Scott has lowering state income taxes on his list, and legislators have indicated a willingness to explore the possibility due to the state’s overcollection of taxes.

A few others called for ending the state income tax. It’s an issue gaining momentum with the grassroots and, perhaps, becoming more of a possibility than a pipedream.
