Designed to stimulate investment and business growth across the state,
the changes are rapidly making Kentucky more competitive. Reforms
include the repeal of the corporate license tax and the intangible
property tax, as well as a reduction in the corporate income tax rate
from 8.25 percent to the current 6%. Personal income taxes have also
been reduced to a range of 2-6%. Indiana ranks 8th in Tax Foundation's 2015 Business Tax Climate Index. The cost of doing business in Indiana is very favorable, due in part to
