Wheels Come off Bel Edwards’ Tax Train

Gov. John Bel Edwards’ proposed controversial business tax dies before House committee

BY TYLER BRIDGES | tbridges@theadvocate.com

The centerpiece of Gov. John Bel Edwards’ tax package – a proposed tax on corporate sales known as the commercial activity tax – died before the House Ways and Means Committee Tuesday afternoon.

State Rep. Sam Jones, the bill’s sponsor, knowing it would be killed, asked the committee to voluntarily defer the bill. That effectively means it’s dead for the legislative session.

Jones’ move prevented him and Edwards from suffering an embarrassing vote and forcing Democratic members of the committee from voting for an unpopular measure that had no chance.

    In accordance with my observation, after a foreclosures home is available at an auction, it is common for your borrower to still have some sort ofthat remaining unpaid debt on the mortgage loan. There are many loan companies who try to have all charges and liens paid back by the up coming buyer. Having said that, depending on specified programs, legislation, and state guidelines there may be some loans which aren’t easily solved through the shift of lending products. Therefore, the obligation still remains on the debtor that has got his or her property in foreclosure. Many thanks for sharing your notions on this site.
