The report mentions that in 2011, Indiana approved a gradual reduction in the corporate rate through 2015, which will continue to improve Indiana’s score.  It also notes that Indiana’s personal income tax rate is scheduled to gradually decline (but only slightly) through 2017.
Of course, any income tax is counterproductive to a robust economy.  But Indiana at least appears to be headed the right direction.
