Hypocrite Rick Perry lies about Raising Taxes- Billions of Dollars of Tax Increases

26 August 2011 at 12:54:29 PM

You think you're keeping more of your own money? Not in Texas under Rick Perry


Mr. Perry’s most ambitious tax reform came in 2006. He appointed a bipartisan blue-ribbon panel, similar to committees in Congress that have suggested tax changes, to help cobble together a new business tax. Ultimately, the reforms adopted by the Legislature raised cigarette taxes by $1 a pack and vastly increased the number of businesses subject to the state franchise tax, all in exchange for billions of dollars in property tax reductions.

Mr. Perry was strongly criticized at the time by antitax conservatives, who said the business tax overhaul, called the margins tax, was an income tax in disguise. Critics also say big refineries and other property-intensive businesses got huge breaks while medium-sized businesses were stuck with higher bills.

Chuck Toudouze, the former owner of the now-closed Toudouze Market in San Antonio, he saw his taxes shoot up over 700 percent (to over $17,000) by 2010, when he closed the grocery warehouse.

Mr. Toudouze said Mr. Perry’s motivation was sincere, and he applauded him for steadfastly opposing a state income tax. But he said the paltry property tax relief that he saw did not make up for Mr. Perry’s business tax increases.

“For it just to continue to go up and to constantly have to fight it, it’s just beleaguering,” Mr. Toudouze said. “Was this a tax increase? Yeah, it was an increase. The margins tax was an increase in tax for us. The property tax cut was just a sick joke.”

the other tax increase is the online sales tax that Perry just signed into law. Wrote about it here-Rick Perry AGAINST Amazon taxes before he was for it.

Yup. Rick Perry is a liar and misrpresents his positions. Woe to the people who don't check out what he says and see what he DOES.
