Should the state income tax be abolished?
|The way politicians are handling the money these days, one doesn’t know if the money is going into their own pockets instead of where it is supposed to be going. If abolishing taxes means there will be no money for the bridges, the highways and other necessities, then no.
||James Dancy Jr.
|… I don’t believe they should because of the state of our infrastructure, and [because] a lot of the programs … are being taken away from the community. I don’t feel a legitimate need to repeal the income tax at this time.

|I don’t think that the state income tax should be abolished … I believe that our state tax should be to make the state greener, to provide books and materials for the school system, etc. Without it, what happens to our children?
|No. The funds from the income taxes are needed to support state-run programs, such as recreation for children with disabilities, education and after-school programs, and literacy programs.
|No, because it’s detrimental to the allocation of resources.

|No … We need to have state taxes. If we don’t, we won’t have services such as public schools, repairing bridges, [and] taking care of the elderly [and] the young. State taxes are very important.
