Raising Revenues to Invest in Rhode Island


Legislation

The proposed legislation takes an important step in decreasing the regressivity and increasing the fairness of Rhode Island’s tax structure by adding one new personal income tax bracket, affecting only households in the top 1%, with adjusted gross incomes above $475,000.

Adding this one bracket would raise an estimated $128.2 million in revenue and would impact no Rhode Islanders outside of the top 1 percent of taxable income earners, those earning well above $1 million per year on average.
