Texas is #1 in economic performance

Apr 17, 2014 by AFP

Continuing our theme of bragging, a new report came out last week which revealed Texas is a top state for economic performance.  The ALEC 2014 Rich States, Poor States report is 7th in a series and revealed we are ranked 13th among the states in economic outlook.  Once again, local government debt forced Texas’ outlook ranking lower as we are ranked 49th in debt service as a share of tax revenue.  That’s something we can work on!

Texas ranks near the top in small business tax index.

The Lone Star State ranked #3 in the 2014 small business tax  state rankings  released this week by the Small Business and Entrepreneurship Council.
