This is on the table and I do support it. It’s a tax break, however, I do think it’s justified. We all know our tax system is messed up and more complicated than a 10,000 piece puzzle. That is why I have to pay people to manage it for me quarterly and yearly. I shouldn’t have to do that! I think measures used to less complicated things should be installed and that means less measures complicating the system. I understand we are not lose some money here for taxes, however, the tax was unfair as it was. I don’t believe some people or business owners should pay more for what they do or who they are. That includes the taxing the rich which I don’t support.
Even Though this should have gone to a public vote and not just eliminated without anyone knowing, I do support the expiration of the tax.
Advisory Vote No. 2 (Substitute House Bill 2590)
“The legislature extended, without a vote of the people, expiration of a tax on possession of petroleum products and reduced the tax rate, costing $24,000,000 in its first ten years, for government spending.”
