Indiana Gov. Mike Pence gathered nearly 200 experts in Indianapolis to talk about taxes.
Pence called it the Indiana Tax Competitiveness and Simplification Conference. He said he was not aiming to cut or raise taxes, but to “lessen the burden of compliance” and “create a more attractive environment for investment.”
Pence deserves credit for refusing to be satisfied with the status quo. Making Indiana’s tax laws smarter won’t be easy, but it’s worth trying.
