Tax Breaks on My Mind

October 3rd, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

Lawmaker are here to cut the budget, and maybe fix PIP. But it’s tax breaks on everyone’s mind. Even House Speaker Marco Rubio is looking pas the current special session

“Thatís why I believe itís the fairest tax out there because you determine based on how much you have. There are a lot of other taxes out there that take money away from you even if you canít afford to pay it. So there is no doubt if your argument is that the property taxes is the more stable source of taxation, I donít disagree with that at all it is more stable. The reason why it is more stable is you have to pay it even if you canít afford it. Thatís what makes it so stable is that it is inherently unfair. It is the only tax repayment that has nothing to do with your ability to pay it. So yeah, sales tax is bad for government, But it is good for people.Ē

Rubio would like to see either an amended or new property tax proposal on the ballot January 29th.
