Hood Says He Wants to Reduce State Food Tax

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — The Democratic candidate for Mississippi governor wants to reduce the state’s 7 percent grocery sales tax to give working people a break. Attorney General Jim Hood wants to at least cut it in half and possibly eliminate it altogether; and to keep cities from losing money with a grocery tax reduction, Hood proposes sending revenue from an online sales tax to cities and counties. Lt. Governor Tate Reeves and retired Mississippi Supreme Court Chief Justice Bill Waller Jr. will compete in a runoff Tuesday for the GOP nomination.

  1. All they will do is raise property taxes to make up for it

  2. It’s better than the current tax plan in Mississippi where Nissan, Toyota and Exxon pay no taxes.

  3. Ha all he doing is trying to buy votes Democrats will raise taxes

  4. Texas made it work. It would be a huge boost for the hard working family class! Take off the big manufacturing companies feeding off the free taxes and everyone wins. It’s kind of unAmerican to tax the little guy and give the big ones an open door to no taxes.
