Idaho Poll: 70% say tax system fair

A new statewide poll commissioned by the Associated Taxpayers of Idaho has some unfavorable news for those planning to push for major tax reforms or tax cuts in the coming year: 70 percent of Idahoans rate the current state tax system as mostly or very fair right now, and 59 percent say the current taxes they pay are about right for the services they receive, compared to 30 percent who say they’re too high and 8 percent who say they’re too low/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

DFO: Despite this poll, you know that Butch and legislative GOP allies will be pushing for income tax cuts for their well-heeled buddies in the 2016 Legislature, right? Thoughts?
