Colorado Democrats: “You Know, If We Taxed Our Taxes, That Would Be Great. Let’s Do It!”

greed  So, they rename a tax and then tax it?  Wow.  That takes balls.  I wonder if they will change income taxes to “income fees” and then tax them as well.

Coloradans must pay a $1.50 waste-tire fee every time they dispose of an old tire at a retail outlet. And according to an “FYI Memo” from the state department of revenue, “ Effective August 5, 2009, the waste tire recycling development fee is considered part of the purchase price and is subject to sales tax.”

Based on the revenue of the waste-tire fee from previous years, this means the state and other sub-governments could collect a grand total of anywhere between $300,000 to $500,000…all because they are taxing a fee.

Memo here.  Three guesses which political party controls the executive and legislative branches of the state government of Colorado…
