Bevin's tax plan is non-specific. We assume he is surveying the several groups of taxpayers, i.e. pensioners, small businesses, various working class families and farmers to get their input. Thus he will be able to get a consent of all or most to share any tax increase. Those receiving lower taxes would then gladly agree to the application of this benefit to increase jobs in Kentucky.
We will not know what effect the tax law will have on Bevin's taxes. As an entrepreneur he has multiple deductions most taxpayers cannot take. And he has refused to release his tax history. Also, will this new tax law benefit the many other entrepreneurs?
Surely you might want to contact the governor and get some answers rather than write about the current problems of state-controlled pensions again.
