Tax ‘Creativity’ In California

Unions in California are doing their best to see that the state replaces Massachusetts (nicknamed “Taxachusetts”) as the place best known for taxes.

The Golden State is in dire financial straits, and even though voters there sent a loud-and-clear message that they don’t want new or higher taxes, that’s exactly what the American Federation of State County Municipal Employees is urging lawmakers to impose.

The list of proposed taxes is comical enough that Assemblyman Chuck DeVore, a Republican Senate candidate for the U.S. Senate in next year’s race, repackaged it online into a petition against “31 Flavors Of New Taxes For California!

AFSCME wants to raise money by imposing new or higher taxes on sales, services, income, gas, alcohol, property, businesses, software, research, stocks and much more. Read the whole list — and be thankful if you don’t live in California.
