Lawmakers Mull Break for Businesses

The Mississippi Legislature is working on a bill that would give a financial break to businesses paying the inventory tax.

House Bill 536 passed the House Tuesday and moves to the Senate for more work. It would increase the level of state income-tax credits for
businesses that pay inventory taxes. The changes would be phased in between 2014 and 2019.

House Ways and Means Committee chairman, Jeff Smith says the plan is a way to help small businesses without draining local tax dollars from cities and counties.

Opponents say the state could lose income-tax revenue with no guarantee that businesses will add more jobs or do other things to improve the economy.

Smith says Mississippi is one of eight states with an inventory tax.

    Asia for Asians, Africa for Africans, White countries for everyone???????? Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into White countries. The Netherlands and Belgium are more crowded than Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them. Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY White countries to "assimilate," i.e., intermarry, with all those non-Whites. But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the White race, Liberals and respectable conservatives will just say that I'm a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews. They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White. Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.
