The facts on lege tax votes – C. B. Forgotston

This is the beginning of a series of interim reports on how members of the LA House of Representatives voted to increase your taxes.

If higher taxes makes you queasy, you should ask to be removed from my mailing list. This isn’t going to be pretty.

Purpose

Hopefully, this will encourage individuals who have been considering running for the lege to run against the incumbents. These tax votes alone are enough to beat every incumbent and they haven’t finished raising your taxes yet.

How your lege voted

With HB 629 the leges voted to increase your taxes by $223 Million, annually, by reducing your tax credits.

To see how your lege voted go here.

A “YEA” vote is to increase your taxes. A “NAY” vote is against raising your taxes. “ABSENT” is counted as a NAY vote.

NOTE: Due to chronic vote changing in the House, I have downloaded hard copies of every vote. If a lege switches their vote after Thursday, it will be noted in future mailings.

    “by reducing your tax credits”

    Since when is writing businesses a check for taxes they don’t pay the same as a tax increase? Man, this nonsense has to stop.

    Remember: tax incentives/credits = corporate welfare. Let the market determine winners and losers, not government.

    I’ve never heard of a business getting a check from the government for their property tax. The inventory credit just reduces what they pay they government.

    Hey Anonymous 8:20 just so you understand what businesses pay. When a business buys a piece of equipment, anything a computer, a desk a chair or a tractor it pays sales tax on that item. Know what happens next year? They get to pay taxes on it again, and the next and the next. I would love for government to start treating personal taxes like business taxes for just 1 year then these stupid people would wake up and understand that it isn’t a crime to own your own business. Maybe they should’ve done away with the “earned income” tax loophole. Or what about the child tax credit? Or the interest credit for those rich people who own their own houses? Those wouldn’t be tax increases either would they?

    Anonymous@8:33, you told it like it is,the truth. Business pay more taxes than any one else,taxes on equipment,city taxes,state taxes ,fed taxes,overhead taxes,labor taxes,unemployment taxes,and then at the end of the year personal taxes. I bet I missed some. I really don’t know why anybody would start a business anyway because of the headaches with state and federal rules and regulations the way they are. If it were not for small business what would people do ,I’ll tell you people would starve to death. People need to get off the federal tit and quit asking for more handouts,and go to work. If these colleges can not make on their own,shut them down,anyother thing not paying its own way shut it down. There would be jobs for every one if we quit feeding the state and federal pigs

    Inventory tax is wrong,unfair. So is any property tax. Distribution of wealth that’s what it is. Business get taxed every year on every thing unless you are a designated property tax exempt business such as farmers,fisherman and business exempted by local gov’ for a period of time. Nothing fair about that. Just look at the exemptions of the property tax law. Over age 65 and under income freeze, military deductions, etc. Mr. Lege, how about doing away with the unfair property tax and replacing it with a fair and equitable sales tax. I want hold my breath and hell will freeze over before this occurs.
