Letter: Sales tax will inch its way up

September 28, 2013 

Nature abhors a vacuum and the government abhors an untaxed asset.

It will be a small amount initially, then increase by one-quarter of a percent here and one-half percent there and soon we will be dealing with another back-breaking tax. 

If you want to give the homeowners a break on their taxes, reduce state spending.
