Our man in Carson City, Dan Burdish, is looking deeper and deeper into the Democrats’ proposed tax on services, and the deeper he looks the more it smells.
“The bill requires any ‘Service provider’ – any person engaged in a business that provides any ‘taxable services’ – to sign up and pay a $5 fee to the State,” Dan writes in an email to me. “And they are not allowed to include the new service tax in their basic fee. They must provide a receipt that shows the tax as a separate item. That’s fine for a business but it SUCKS for a teenager who is mowing lawns or babysitting for extra money.”
Remember when Democrats were supposed to be for the “little guy”? Not any longer; at least not when it comes to raising taxes to fund pet government programs.
