Phil Fortunato on Tax Reform

 

 


Fund transportation needs with inflation-linked sales tax

Our state's transportation system is in trouble and it keeps getting worse. I am proposing that we use an inflation-linked funding source with the taxes you already send to Olympia. By using the existing sales tax on motor vehicles, we can fully fund our state's transportation needs. As cars become more fuel efficient, people take more transit, or more electric vehicles hit the roads, the gas tax won't be sufficient. It's a declining revenue source.

Introduced bill to exempt older seniors from property tax

Seniors are being taxed out of their homes and they have worked hard for the homes they own. At some point in time seniors have paid enough taxes. That is why I introduced legislation (SB 5535) that would exempt older senior citizens from property tax. My goal here is to allow seniors to stay in their homes as long as possible. Seniors should not have to choose between paying property taxes or meeting their basic needs.
