EndlessLosses: I’d PRAISE the tax inspector for doing her job — give her a raise! Pay your damn taxes. I’m so sick and tired of seeing my neighbors thinking that under-the-table cash transactions for firewood, snowplowing, truck gardening, etc. are tax exempt business activities. Yet they’d be the first to get their panties in a wad if some moneybags was not paying taxes. It doesn’t matter if the amount of taxes are small or large - the law is the law. I’m also sick and tired of the Idaho legislature providing loophole exemptions. Close the loopholes.
Question: Anyone out there willing to agree w/EndlessLosses that the 2 revenuers were just doing their job when they shut down the kids’ pumpkin stand in Lewiston?
The Idaho State Tax Commission has called for the closure of a family’s
pumpkin stand on the 1000 block of Eighth Street in Lewiston. A representative of the tax commission stopped by the home of Dan and
Kami Charais Friday and asked for the stand’s closure. The Charais’ 4-
and 6-year-old children are operating the stand to raise money for
school sports. The tax commission representative who stopped by the home said she was
not at liberty to talk about the incident when reached by phone this
afternoon/Lewiston Tribune. More here. (AP photo for illustration purposes) H/T: Lew2NL.
Question: How come the Idaho State Tax Commission has time to shut down a kids’ pumpkin stand when it can’t seem to close the loopholes in sweet deals for major corporations?
