Morse, Bradley continue to fight against a New Hampshire income tax

Concord, NH – Today the New Hampshire Senate Finance Committee held a public hearing for a non-germane amendment that establishes payroll deductions on wages above the Social Security tax cap. Following the public hearing Senate Republican Leader Chuck Morse (R-Salem) and Senator Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro) issued the following statements:

“Senate Democrats have proven again that an income tax in New Hampshire is their top priority, with the amendment heard today being the second time this year it has been proposed,” said Senate Republican Leader Chuck Morse (R-Salem). “This amendment would give New Hampshire a higher income tax than our neighbors in Massachusetts. I will never support an income tax and am disappointed we are still having this conversation after Governor Sununu made it clear that he will veto any income tax legislation that comes to his desk.”

“Even with the state experiencing record high revenues, Senate Democrats are still advocating for an income tax on Granite Staters,” said Senator Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro). “This Democratic legislature has veered so far from the party of John Lynch that it is unrecognizable today. We were sent to Concord to govern with fiscal responsibility and not waste taxpayer money. I have never seen my Democratic colleagues fighting so fiercely to create an income tax and destroy the New Hampshire Advantage.”
