Re: “Little Rock may join class action lawsuit on hotel room sales taxes

Sales tax on automobiles is actually paid on the sales price of the car less any trade-in, not the MSRP.

Re: “New tax bite has some looking for angle on Arkansas property taxes

Any info on how the federal tax changes, in particular itemized deductions, will affect Arkansas state income tax returns? Will the eliminations/reductions pass-through to Arkansas state income tax returns or will this leave tax payers basically doing a federal return without itemizing and an Arkansas state return with with itemizations?

Re: “UPDATE: Microsoft lends support to governor; former governor's aide in the thick of it

Arkansas is well on its way to having all public and charter school districts connected to the State of Arkansas network and the Internet via fiber optic cable. I think there are about 98 districts left to convert to the new K12 network. One can track the network upgrade project here:…

Re: “Ever butt-dialed 911? False alarm from panic button in West Fork

It wasn't the second false alarm in Arkansas schools this month. It might have been the second one reported in the media. Most schools are going through "growing pains" with the Rave Panic Button system. All staff need lots of practice on using it, on not accidentally using it, and most importantly, what to do in the event of an actual emergency. Until staff practice different emergency scenarios so the response becomes automatic, we've still got a long way to go. I'm also hearing that many rural schools are having problems with accurate location information because the cellular network is too weak to pinpoint the caller's location.

Re: “Voter suppression reports; Prosecutor Jegley weighs in

The "if we can scan your drivers license, it will be quicker" ruse was also used at my polling place, but I don't buy it. The poll workers at my precinct were using the paper voter roll book when I arrived at lunch time. I was found in the book, without being asked for my ID because the poll worker personally knew me, signed in, and had by ballot ticket in less than a minute.

However, about 30 minutes later while I was still standing in line, a lady shows up and insists that they start using the iPads to scan drivers licenses. I asked the poll worker who signed me in who the lady was and she said she didn't know. It looked very fishy to me. I so much wanted to stand outside and remind people they did not have to show any form of ID to vote.
