Taxes and Fees

The Legislature holds its Organization Day on Wednesday, and doesn't start legislating until January, but incoming lawmakers have already filed a bevy of levies on New Hampshire's taxpayers. Tom Fahey rounds up the proposed taxes and fees in this week's Under the State House Dome:
Lawmakers have filed a dozen tax bills so far on gasoline, tobacco, bottles, beer, income (three of those), even fireworks.

One resurrects the Legacy and Succession tax (better known as the death tax) that produced $25 million a year before it was repealed in 2002.

Safety Commissioner John Barthelmes told lawmakers he'd like several bills to bump up a couple of fees his agency collects.
