House Bill 3254 (.PDF)
The "luxury tax" bill that you heard about today on the Lars Larson show. Everything from fur coats to submarines. Seriously this is a sales tax. This year it is on boats and snowmobiles but next legislative session we will see the "expansion" of the luxury tax to include other items. The following session we will see a "surcharge" of the luxury tax followed by yet another "expansion" of purchases eligible for the luxury tax. Next thing you know such "luxurious" items as soy-mocha-latte-grande coffees at Starbucks will be taxed. That might be the day the liberals realize we have a sales tax.
