Issues

Expanding Business Enterprise Tax

Noting that the highest paid individuals in the state are often hospital executives and college presidents, Hess expressed support for exploring expanding the Business Enterprise Tax (BET) to non-profit entities. The BET currently acts as a small tax on employee compensation for businesses operating in the state, and the non-profit sector accounts for 12 percent of all of New Hampshire's economic activity. Opponents, including the New Hampshire College and University Council, argued that non-profits have their status because they are doing work worthy of tax breaks, including caring for the sick and educating the population.[1]
