Flat tax dead this year

Posted By on Thu, May 27, 2010 at 4:11 PM

A crippling idea to remove all state taxes in favor of a single "flat" tax (of some untold high level) is dead for this year, the City Wire reports.

But the Republican backers of this loony idea vow to come back in 2011. They'd hoped to slip pre-approval of the monstrously complicated and underhanded measure through the Supreme Court, but legal intervention by the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce and others scuttled that.

Ernest Dumas has been sounding the alarm on this public services-killer for some time.
