Tax Commission

In late 2010, Hill said the Legislature should look at restructuring the Idaho Tax Commission to make the agency more transparent.

Hill doesn’t think there’s anything fishy about past settlements approved by commissioners that Rep. Shirley Ringo says were sweetheart deals for powerful taxpayers, like multi-state corporations. Ringo says the breaks have cost citizens around $75 million.

As former chairman of the Senate Local Government and Taxation Committee, Hill reviewed a number of cases two years ago when former auditor Stan Howland first accused agency commissioners in 2008 of arbitrarily granting unjustified breaks.[1]
