Should They Raise Taxes In Massachusetts? [POLL]
Massachusetts once was called Tax-achusetts, and some are wondering if Gov. Patrick’s plans to raise taxes and fees will reawaken the moniker.
The Governor’s proposals include raising the income tax on some, hike the gas tax, MBTA fares, turnpike and tunnel tolls, Registry fees, eliminate some corporate tax benefits, eliminate some personal deductions like college scholarships and dependents under 12, and other plans.
On the other hand, we’re told that our area will get the funding for “the train” from this proposal.
