- So what is your friend doing about it?Massachusetts people are out to terminate their state income taxes.Tax Revolt Brewing!August 6th, 2008 by Michael Nystrom
The Wall Street Journal reports:
The [Massachusetts] state board of elections recently certified that citizen activists have gathered the 125,000 signatures required to qualify an initiative for the November ballot to eliminate the state income tax. The Small Government Act would repeal the 5.3% income and wage tax, as well as the state capital gains tax, which reaches as high as 12%. The ballot initiative would replace the $12.5 billion in taxes with . . . nothing.
Now we’re talking! Does that last line sound familiar to anyone?
Carla Howell of the Committee for Small Government is the hero driving this referendum. Find out more atSmallGovernmentAct.org
The same initiative got 45% of the vote in 2002!
