Avg. Personal Property Tax Bill: $89

Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise, posts:

StateImpact Idaho is doing some analysis of state Tax Commission data on the personal property tax on business equipment, the $141 million a year tax that the state's largest businesses are pushing hard to repeal. Among the points: Among the 53,227 Idaho companies that paid the tax in 2011, the median payment was $89.64. And 6.904 companies paid less than $5 in 2011. You can see StateImpact’s full post here.

Question: Sounds to me as though the rich FOBs (Friends of Butch) are trying to get a sweetheart deal at the expense of the rest of Idaho's taxpayers. What do you think?
