Taxes Game

Think it's easy to make the tough decisions? It's your turn to call the shots.

You're the governor. Normally that's awesome -- you get great seats to football games down at state college and state troopers drive you around wherever you want to go. Right about now, though, it's a tough job. Your state is facing a massive budget crisis, and you need to figure out a way to raise more revenue ASAP.

Some kind of tax increase is unavoidable. But people hate tax increases. Can you come up with a plan to rescue the state budget without getting run out of town on a rail?

Play our Taxes Game and see if you've got what it takes to make it to the next election.
