Historic tax relief, key investments, conservative budget highlight Gov. Little’s achievements this legislative session
Boise, ID (STL.News) Governor Brad Little delivered on all the objectives he laid out in his 2021 State of the State and Budget address – including giving taxpayers back their hard-earned money through historic tax relief, successful passage of his “Building Idaho’s Future” plan for strategic investments, and securing the most conservative budget in years.
“Despite a lot of noise, distractions, and of course the unfortunate, unprecedented duration of this year’s legislative session, we were able to act on the issues that matter most in the day-to-day lives of the people we serve,” Governor Little said. “Years of fiscally conservative leadership and prompt action during the pandemic positioned our state with a record budget surplus while other states face cuts. We’ve proven once again that conservative principles bring opportunity for citizens during the highs and the lows. We’re looking forward, and the future is bright.”
Governor Little kicked off statewide stops this week to highlight the achievements, which include:
Historic Tax Relief
Idahoans will benefit from the single largest income tax cut in history – $445 million for Idaho families and businesses, including $163 million in permanent, ongoing income tax cuts to boost Idahoans’ prosperity while keeping our tax rates competitive and business climate vibrant, and $8 million in ongoing property tax cuts offset by the General Fund.
