My vet's wife sent me this email today. I called and it took me 32 seconds
to participate. Vet care is high enough without having a sales tax imposed
upon not only products, but services as well. And as it's all automated, no
one asked if I was a CA resident (which I am). There's a lot of states out
there besides CA who are in a budget crisis. Wouldn't doubt if they are
watching to see if this goes thru in CA so they can do it too.
I did this, and it's true, it only takes a few seconds, pushing some
telephone buttons - you don't even have to talk to anyone.
CA wants to legislate a sales tax (in my town 7.25%, but it would be based
on the sales tax in your location) on all veterinary services..
This is really reprehensible at a time when so much is being done to
heighten awareness regarding caring for animals. Veterinarians, whose training and
licensing is as rigorous as that of MDs will now have their care taxed as
though they were dispensing canned goods. And the cost of surgeries, neutering,
etc. is high—an additional tax will discourage many from giving their pet
This only takes seconds. Say NO to taxes on our vet services!
Please call the governors's office and make it known that balancing the
budget at the expense of our pets' health is not acceptable!!!
It only takes about 20 seconds because it's all automated.
