The Blue Ribbon Commission on Tax Reform has launched a website to collect public input as the panel begins its work to overhaul Kentucky’s tax code.
Citizens can offer comments through online forms or request to make presentations at any of the upcoming commission meetings scheduled across the state. The 23-member panel was formed by Gov. Steve Beshear earlier this year and held its first meeting on Tuesday.
“The work of this tax reform commission will impact the future of all Kentuckians,” said Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson, who chairs the commission. “That’s why our website and series of meetings are designed for public input and transparency as we move forward with this critical process.”
The commission will hold 11 additional meetings throughout the state over the course of the year. Its next meeting is scheduled for April 10 at the Capitol Annex building in Frankfort.
The panel is expected to forward its recommendations to Beshear by November.
