Tax study is not dead, nor does it sleep

It has, however, been on the back burner for a while, because the Nevada Vision Stakeholders Group didn’t schedule a meeting in December.

But as Doug Busselman of the Farm Bureau reports today, the NVSG’s first meeting will be on Jan. 8, 2010, literally right around the corner.

Doug’s also an alternate member of the Stakeholders Group, so be sure to read his thoughts on the process. Here’s his most important takeaway.

Hopefully, with a strong citizen turn-out and input for non-governmental alternatives in the quality-of-life visioning we might be able to establish more of a balanced viewpoint than what it appears to be possible at this point in time.

After the Christmas holiday is over, we’ll be coming back to this topic, so enjoy the holidays, but stay tuned.

Until then, here’s some good background information on this tax study that will be used as an excuse to try and raise your taxes in 2011.
