Lawmakers are considering four separate plans to reduce or eliminate the sales taxes Idaho residents pay on food. The bills, introduced at a hearing Wednesday, include one from Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter to give $46 million in tax relief to the state's working poor. Two others would cut in half or eliminate the 6 percent state surcharge on food for everyone. And the fourth would more than double the grocery-tax credit that all Idaho residents now receive on their state income-tax returns.
