For the past five years or so, I’ve served on the Business Tax Advisory Committee. Now, this sounds like an important committee that should be making some important recommendations on an important subject: the state’s failed Margins Tax.
The problem is that the committee has done very little (it didn’t even meet over the past two years) due to the absurd claim that providing “advice” about the “business tax” was outside the charge of the “Business Tax Advisory Committee.”
My bill would reconstitute the committee and make it clear that the state needs its input on this critical, controversial revenue source.
