NH Governor sets up a 'Tax Me More' account for those who feel their taxes aren't high enough - Washington state introduces a 'Tax Me More' bill of its own
New Hampshire Governor Craig Benson announced that he is setting up a special "Tax Me More" account for those who feel that their taxes aren't high enough.
"The voters spoke loud and clear last November: No income tax, no sales tax, no tax increases, no way. I have put forward the first budget in a long time that controls spending and lowers taxes. But every now and then I hear someone wants to spend more money or raise some tax," said Benson. "I can certainly respect a difference of opinion and I want to accommodate those who feel that their taxes aren't high enough. That's why I am setting up the 'Tax Me More' account for those people who want to pay more in taxes."
Anyone wishing to pay higher taxes can make their checks payable to "The State of NH / Tax Me More Account" and mail their checks to Administrative Services, Room 120, Statehouse Annex, Concord, NH, 03301. All voluntary tax payments should be accompanied by the "Tax Me More" tax form. Copies of the form are available the Governor's Customer Service Department and can be obtained by calling (603) 271-7626.
Washington State has its own proposed "tax me more" bill.
SB5700 is a revenue enhancement bill that would allow people to pay
more taxes if they would like too. It could be exempt from the cutoff.
I encourage you to let Senator Rossi know that you would like to see
this bill come out of committee.
