Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey is proposing the largest tax cut in his seven years in office for the coming budget year.
He also wants to using the savings from a pandemic-induced drop in school enrollment to pay for summertime make-up classes for K-12 students who have fallen behind because of virtual learning. The $12.6 billion proposal released Friday is for the budget year that starts July 1. It includes $200 million in cuts to the state income tax that will rise to $600 million in the third year _ the year he leaves office. Ducey Chief of Staff Daniel Scarpinato says Ducey wants taxes cut for all Arizona taxpayers.
