Since we inadvertently ended up with a theme to this week’s Tribune, it makes sense to ask: If you could introduce a tax bill into your state’s Legislature, what would it be?
Suggestions from inside Spidell include:
- If client paperwork is not submitted by February 1, 50% of any refund goes to the preparer.
- For a 0% unemployment rate and zero wait time, any unemployed individuals are to be hired and trained as state tax agency phone operators.
- To close the budget shortfall once and for all, California is going to impose a “selfie tax” of one cent per selfie.
- Anyone flying over the state of California is subject to a 2% sunshine tax (at least on those days when the clouds are not present).
You can reply to your weekly Tribune e-mail with any suggestions.
