Having just finished my State and Federal tax returns, it is scary to think that there are more huge tax bill increases coming. The millions of new taxes in the Legislation just passed by the Vermont House do not seem ‘balanced’ and ‘appropriate’ and many Vermonters will be affected. I agree with the points that Holly Farrington made in the last week’s issue of the Shelburne News, and it’s hard to understand why our Shelburne House Representatives, Joan Lenes and Kate Webb, chose to vote for what appears to be one of the largest tax increases ever at a time when so many are already feeling the burden.
I’m hoping there still is time for reconsideration and thoughtful budget cutting.
