July 15--  The Senate State Fair Tax Study Committee will hold its first meeting on Wednesday, July 17 at the Georgia State Capitol. Chaired by Senator Judson Hill (R – Marietta), over the next few months this study committee will review the viability of enforcing the Fair Tax as a method of state tax reform. The committee will report its findings and any proposed legislation on or before December 31, 2013.

The Senate State Fair Tax Study Committee was created by the passage of Senate Resolution 72 during the 2013 legislative session. The Fair Tax is a proposed method of state and federal level tax reform that taxes consumers on the sale of new goods and services and eliminates the employee payroll tax.
