The Texas margin tax is relatively new, but in just that short amount of time it has already earned a dubious reputation; faced numerous constitutional challenges; and been lambasted in the press as “confusing,” “problematic,” and an “abject failure.” The many problems plaguing the tax mean that changes are almost assuredly ahead in the next legislative session. Join us as our panel of experts discuss the state of affairs surrounding the margin tax, its many constitutional questions, and possible reforms in the 83rd legislative session.
