A Taxpayer's Perspective from the National Taxpayers Union
Public Question 1 would earmark the proceeds from the equivalent of 1 percentage-point of the 7 percent state sales tax for property tax relief.
Experts differ on the effect of this tax shift. Aside from the fact that the measure is not a net tax cut, some question whether the stated intention of providing property tax relief would be properly fulfilled.
