I’m beginning to think it might be time for a state income tax. It would be much fairer for both the rich and the poor than the sales tax where everybody pays the same rate. It will never pass as long as the Legislature doesn’t completely get rid of the sales tax. We all know what they’d do if they just lower it to 1 percent – they would slowly raise it back up.
I’m also wondering if the government is controlling the gas prices so they can add the taxes while they are low and we won’t care – then back up they go, taxes and all. They wouldn’t do that would they?
