By Guy Page About 780 concerned Vermonters have signed an online petition to stop the proposed expansion of the sales tax to services, Vermont GOP official Paul Dame said today.
“There is a proposal to expand the sales tax on services like haircuts, auto repairs, home improvements, even day care and tuition payments,” the petition created by the Vermont Republican Party says. “A service tax essentially means a tax on labor. Anyone who provides their labor is now going to need to collect and pay a new tax to the State. Anyone who owns their own barber shop, house cleaning service, lawn care or snow plowing – even babysitters and other child care professionals will now have to begin calculating and applying the tax to their service, and passing it on to every one of their customers.”
