Sales tax reform vital to Arizona's future

Arizona is behind the curve on making our sales tax system simpler and saner. Getting us up to snuff with forty-six other states will finally clear a path for Arizona policymakers to enact the sorts of big-picture tax reform that can finally put us ahead of our competitor states on tax policy

There are far too many taxes in this state. Sales tax, income tax, some of the highest auto registration fees in the country, the state gets 5% of the casinos take…when considering we’re what…roughly 5 million people? One has to eventually stop and ask how much money does this state really need?

This is why I voted against the sales tax increase in ‘10, and again in ‘12.

I would very much like to see an elimination of either the sales tax, or the income tax. Other states get by just fine with one or the other (and a few, neither), and I think Arizona with its relatively small population would do just fine, too.
