Opening Arguments

We're gaining

Guess it must be my turn to comment on Tax Foundation reports lately. Here's the third one in five days touching on Indiana. This one is pretty good news, ranking states by buisness tax climate by considering business property tax rates, the sales tax, individual taxes, corporate taxes and unemployment insurance taxes:

Indiana's growing national reputation as a great state to do business has received another boost. The state moved up two places in the Tax Foundation's 2010 Business Tax Climate Index for business tax climate. Indiana is 12th overall, up from 14th in 2009, and remains the top state in the Midwest for business tax competitiveness.

Rankings for other nearby states include Michigan ,17th; Kentucky, 20th; Illinois 30th; Wisconsin 42nd; Minnesota 43rd; Iowa 46th; and Ohio 47th.
