Alternative tax
by Pete Ellis


June 15, 2004

For those who are proposing or advocating alternative tax schemes a foundation for the same should rest on a review of the present tax structure associated with any such matters. Does the local property tax already result in a tax levy as to automobiles and if so how much does that amount to and how is it collected and accounted for in terms of revenue for local government and which local government receives which portion? Should any such revenue be dedicated to specific areas as is done with sales tax levies and port use fees?
