The June issue of Budget & Tax News features the Tax Foundation's new report on Tax Freedom Day--celebrated this year on April 11, the earliest in 37 years, due in large part to the Bush tax cuts.
On page 1, Budget & Tax News reports:
- the Illinois State Chamber of Commerce has filed suit against the State of Illinois, challenging the constitutionality of recent business fee hikes;
- Jeff Fortenberry, an anti-tax candidate, won a hotly contested primary election for an open Congressional seat in Nebraska, beating State Senator Curt Bromm, a pro-tax Republican;
- California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed workers' comp reform; and
- the U.S. Senate approved a four-year Internet access tax ban.
This issue also offers news from Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin; the Taxpayer Protection Pledge; cigarette taxes in Chicago; Kerry's tax plan; marriage penalty relief; and Social Security reform.
