Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter this morning told a crowd of county officials he’s not sure the Legislature will be able to come up with a plan for eliminating Idaho’s personal property tax. “Whether we’re going to get anything done this year or not, I can’t predict that,” he said. “There’s probably more options out there than there are legislators.” Otter spoke at a conference of the Idaho Association of Counties. County leaders and other local officials have been some of the most vocal opponents to doing away with Idaho’s tax on business personal property, given the effect that tax cut could have on local government. The $140 million the tax brings in annually funds local services/Molly Messick, StateImpact. More here.
Question: I think this is great news. How about you?
