Question: Which Grocery Tax Relief Plan Is Best?

Full post here

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.

Question: Which grocery tax relief plan to you prefer?
