The New Tax Math — Don’t Add What Doesn’t Make You Feel Good
Remember last week when I told you that there are some people who believe that “as long as there exists any metric showing Rhode Islanders not near the top in what they are required to pay to the government, taxes need to be raised”?
I just found another one.
For some reason, the person in question decides not to count Rhode Island’s property taxes in Rhode Island’s tax burden, apparently unaware that a dollar in property tax costs a taxpayer just as much as a dollar in sales or income tax. Then he has the gall to say it’s right-wingers who can’t do math.
