Charge 6.25% oil refining tax and wipe out income tax

Campbell believes he possesses the knowledge and courage to unlock billions of untapped dollars: ridding the state of its income tax, saving Louisiana's residents $3.2 billion, according to his estimates. To eliminate the income tax, the state would need to charge oil companies a 6.25% tax to refine their product in the state. The tax on domestic oil, meanwhile, would drop from 12.5% to 6.25%.

Currently, foreign oil refined in Louisiana is not taxed by the state, Campbell said. If a tax were enacted, it would generate $5 billion or more, making it possible to wipe out the income tax and improve the state's education, highway and medical systems. "We have squandered our natural resources," Campbell said. "The politicians have been too cozy with the oil companies." Simply taxing international oil corporations isn't enough, however. Campbell also plans to ask them to pay the state for damages they have caused to its coast--approximately $20 billion, he said.

3% tax on hydrocarbon processing facilities

Legislative Digest: Present constitution prohibits the levy of a tax other than severance tax on "oil, gas, or sulphur leases or rights." Proposed constitutional amendment authorizes the levy of a tax on the use of hydrocarbon processing facilities at a rate not to exceed 3% of the value of the hydrocarbons.

Proposed constitutional amendment provides for a repeal of all severance taxes which are levied on oil and gas if such a tax is levied and the tax is determined to be valid by a final, non-appealable judgment or as otherwise provided by law.

Legislative Outcome: Died in Senate committee. (SB1 authored by Senator Foster Campbell)
