The Correlation is Clear: Lower Tax States Continue to Create Jobs

The TCJA has lifted burdens for all people and created jobs all over the nation. This has been most apparent in states that aligned with the TCJA policies and have lower taxes overall.

According to employment numbers released by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the 27 states with the lightest tax burden on individuals, continued to add jobs at double the rate of the 23 states with higher taxes since December 2017 when the TCJA went into effect.

From December 2017 through September 2019, the 27 low-tax states grew their private sector payrolls by 3.90%. In the 23 high-tax states growth was only 1.86%. Moreover, those low-tax states had a 109% advantage in the rate of private sector job growth over high-tax states.

So while it is clear that the TCJA continues to help people lead better lives all over the nation, it is important to recognize where it has had the greatest impact and work to bring everyone to these amazing levels of growth and employment!
