House Republicans Responsible for Advancing a NH Income Tax Again!

HB 628 Its an income tax - butler serving betterHB 628, which has a tax on income built into it, passed yet another hurdle today when 28 Republicans voted in favor of taxing your income. No need to get into the issues with the bill again for the moment, but if you are new to this debate you can find them here.

Our purpose is to make you aware that (1) no Democrats voted against adding an income tax in New Hampshire, and (2) it could not have passed without  Republican votes. Meaning, the threat of an income tax would have failed if they’d voted against it.

Here’s the list culled from the most recent Roll Call on this legislation.
