San Francisco city officials are hoping that tax increases, which focus on sales taxes, will avoid tax increases directly on their citizens like property taxes or added income taxes. Instead city officials have decided to direct the tax increase toward tourists.
Increase Taxes or Cut Spending?
Although their hope is to lessen the blow on their residents when it comes time to file California state taxes, online comments and interviews show strongly mixed feelings to the proposed increases. Supporters of the added tax burden seem to believe that the cities have no choice, but opponents ask why the cities can’t just cut spending.
As November gets closer, the heat is on and according to Wall Street Journal’s John D. McKinnon, it’s not only Federal but also state taxes that are going to affect congressional elections.
State Income Tax On the Rise
McKinnon explains that according to the National Governors Association in 2010, state taxes were raised $24 billion. This is the highest raise in state taxes since 1979. The tax debate has been a big issue, and some candidates have already broken with the Democrat party’s leadership McKinnon says.

Stephen Moore of Political Diary revealed this week some frustrating predictions for us. Next year when we e-file taxes, we could be facing some tax hikes. If the Bush tax cuts expire and the sketched out tax raises happen, we could be in for some bad news when we e-file. Taxes are not just going to go up for the rich says Moore. In fact, he shows by the title of his article that he believes the middle class will be paying more tax as well.

In an article published this week, four governors wrote about how to cope with budgets in a tough economy. Governor Bob McDonnell of Virginia points out something you don’t normally hear a governor say. He declares you can’t keep raising the budget; you can cut spending and end up with a surplus!

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a U.S. government program to help low income families and individuals have more money to spend. It gives tax refunds that can range from $457 for individuals to $5,657 for a family of five or more. During this time of economic downturn, this money should be in the hands of people and boosting the economy, not left on the government’s table.

A major battle is brewing in Washington, D.C. , over Bush-era tax cuts due to expire at the close of 2010. The tax cuts were originally passed in 2001, and income tax rates will rise if they are allowed to expire.
