Issuing income tax refunds to certain taxpayers from the Taxpayer Relief Fund.

The refund issued under the 2019 legislation was available only to taxpayers who filed prior to July 1, 2019. Read the Bill »

If they give $220 to EVERY household 3,200,000 that would use less than 1/2 of the 1.6 billion surplus both parties are touting.
Why not?

Ronald Quasebarth writes:

This is only fair. Do the full refund, the people know better what do with their money.

Mike A. writes:

This is such a no-brainer. It helps to rectify the unfairness done to taxpayers. It can be a model for other states balking on tax relief.

Charles McAndrew writes:

It is time to give back some of this excess revenue to the taxpayers!

Miriam Sullivan writes:

The ethical & appropriate action to take is to refund the surplus tax $$ to the taxpayers. Spending the money on other things such as employee bonus pay, slush funds, travel, seems dishonest at best.
