Pursuant to Executive Order 13 of June 15, 1972, Governor Thomas Meskill appointed a nine-member commission to make recommendations for the "complete reform of Connecticut's existing tax structure." The Order directed the commission to analyze existing and potential revenue sources, review the State revenue structure particularly with references to its impact on various segments of society and on the climate for business and industry, and to examine the state of the property tax system. The Commission was to make its recommendations by December 1, 1972. Francis E. Baker was chair and John F. Tarrant of the Tax Department acted as executive secretary. The Commission held seventeen meetings, engaged in many informal consultations, held several public hearings and received technical studies and suggestions from many people. Its report was published on December 18, 1972.
Records include meeting minutes, correspondence, administrative files, newspaper clippings, press releases, and drafts of its final report.
