Jonathan Johson's list of 2017 Legislative Tax Increases

Posted by David Lifferth on March 20, 2017 at 10:27am 0 Comments

Here are five tax and fee increases passed by the Utah Legislature:

More gas tax hikes • After increasing gasoline taxes by 4.9 cents a gallon in 2015, this year the Legislature again increased gasoline taxes. Senate Bill 276, sponsored by Sen. Kevin Van Tassell, increases gas taxes by 0.6 cents a gallon and 1.2 cents per gallon increased in 2019 and 2020 — totaling an estimated increase of $4.2 million in 2019 and $14.6 million in 2020. The law also allows for bigger annual hikes (16 percent as opposed to 12 percent) until a legal cap of 40 cents per gallon. This is a tax hike that promises to keep on taking.

Upping your phone bill • Prior to the Legislature passing SB 198, Utah already had the 16th highest wireless tax rate among the states. Welcome to the top 10! This bill, sponsored by Sen. Wayne Harper, increases the fees by $6.72 per phone line (landline and wireless) per year. Utahns will…

Rep. Lifferth only elected official in North West Utah County to vote against Tax Break for Facebook

Posted by David Lifferth on October 26, 2016 at 7:21pm 0 Comments

In the end, Facebook chose to build their data center in New Mexico which had given even larger incentives to Facebook which is one of the biggest companies in the world.…
