Here’s a recap of where Tax Jesus stands with his reform package.
The plan still proposes elimination of school property taxes, which make up the majority of a homeowner’s tax bill. To recoup the money needed to run local school systems, a sales tax would be levied on goods, including groceries, and most services. Those services include but are not limited to accounting, architecture, banking, engineering, household maintenance, legal, photography, transportation, veterinary and vehicle services. As proposed, medical services would not be taxed. Funds would be collected and then be distributed to systems statewide.
