Issue Number 1 - Taxpayers End Up Losers With The Lottery

Too many politicians in North Carolina are banking on a lottery as the solution our states fiscal problems. They are wagering that revenue generated from the sale of lottery tickets will make up any short falls in the state’s budget. Unfortunately, this line of thinking clashes with the reality that a lottery will create significant loses in sales tax for state and local governments.

Republicans use tax filing day to talk about cuts

BY MIKE GLOVER

Iowa Republican leaders sought to use the attention surrounding Monday's tax filing deadline to push for President Bush's $1.6 trillion tax cut package. "The president's proposal is good for all of Iowa's families," said Rep. Greg Ganske, a Republican who is giving up his seat in the U.S. House to challenge Sen. Tom Harkin. State Auditor Richard Johnson, who is giving up his job to run for the GOP nomination for Ganske's 4th District seat, said the tax cut is precisely what's need to spark a state economy that's showing signs of weakness.

Legislature Gives Parents More Control Over Their Children's Education

The 40,000 grassroots activists of Florida Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) applaud the Florida State Senate for passing by a vote of 25-14, a tax credit that will enable more parents to choose where their children go to school. This legislation, CS/HB271, would create a corporate income tax credit for contributions to nonprofit scholarship funding organizations. A similar measure passed the State House of Representatives by a vote of 71-46.

Texans compare numbers in tax-cut debate plan

BY Gary Susswein

As President Bush's $1.6 trillion tax-cut proposals work their way through Congress, Texans remain at odds over who exactly would benefit from the plans. A study co-written by the Austin-based Center for Public Policy Priorities found that nearly one-fourth of Texans would receive no benefit from Bush's proposed income-tax reductions.

Perry among supporters of Bush's tax-cut plan

BY Gary Scharrer

AUSTIN -- The coming federal tax deadline offers a good reminder that income taxes should be cut, Gov. Rick Perry said Wednesday as he and others defended President Bush's proposed $1.6 trillion tax cut. "Americans shouldn't be overcharged so the federal government can be overweight," Perry said. "It's time to lift the onerous burden of federal taxation off the shoulders of hard-working Americans so that they can save, so that they can plan, so that they can achieve."

Perry unsure how tax-cut bid would affect state budget

BY Peggy Fikac

BODY: AUSTIN - As taxpayers face their annual federal day of reckoning, Gov. Rick Perry trumpeted President Bush's tax-cut plan but said Wednesday he hadn't analyzed how it might affect the state budget. State lawmakers are struggling to fund competing demands in areas including health care. Bush's tax plan includes a repeal of the tax on inherited property. It has been estimated that if fully implemented, it could cost the state $300 million annually, because Texas has a levy linked to the federal tax.

Gov. Rick Perry expressed support Wednesday for President George W. Bush's proposed tax cut, urging the U.S. Congress to support the measure and to stop "over-charging" Americans. The majority of the Bush's 10-year $ 1.6 trillion tax cut would come from income tax reductions, repeal of the estate tax and the marriage tax and doubling the $ 500 per child tax credit.
