Electing Low Tax Rulers
Thanks to TaxProf Paul Caron for the info on the NTU's attempts to get all of the candidates for Congress and the US Senate to answer an 11 question survey about their beliefs on taxes and whether or not they will work towards lowering them.
You can check how your state's candidates have responded from this page. Not everyone has responded to the survey. When I checked Arkansas, only four of the eleven names (36.4%) had any feedback as of the September 1 tabulation date. Missouri had responses from 12 of the 30 candidates listed (40%).
If you understand the anti-tax tone of the questions, you can pretty well assume the stand of candidates who refuse to answer them.
