Tennesseans for Fair Taxation is especially relevant for us today because of the national economy. Recently I was proud to file a state income tax form and send the money to Nashville. We should all want to send our tax monies to Nashville rather than Washington D.C.. I'd like our legislators and new Governor to be creative and innovative in this field. We cannot fund Tennessee's economy based on sales taxes.

I learned about TFT from an article I read on their work to close corporate tax loopholes, and upon further investigation found that their solutions make sense for Tennessee and their materials are impressive and informative. I appreciate the organization's work to share important information with the voting public.
