Please act immediately. It is urgent to send your message against HJR 8 now. 


Friend,


One of the worst tax bills ever introduced in the legislature will likely come up for debate on the floor this week or soon after. It is known as the Mega Tax Bill by its opponents and the Fair Tax Bill by it supporters.

The proposed constitutional amendment will eliminate the state individual and corporate income tax and replace it with a sales tax on almost everything including food, drugs, rent, child care, attorney fees, healthcare, beauty care plus much more. It was voted “DO PASS” by the House Tax Reform Committee.  The League sent the committee a statement against HJR 8.

The amendment sets a sales tax increase ceiling to 7%. Experts have concluded that in order to replace the amount of revenue lost by eliminating the income tax the sales tax must be at least 12%.

Please click here to contact your Representative with an email urging them to oppose the "Fair Tax" aka Mega Sales tax. There are talking points included to get you started on your letter.

Thanks!
