Brewer objects to proposals by gubernatorial candidates to end income tax

Income TaxBy Howard Fischer | Capitol Media Services/East Valley Tribune

A plan by some Republican gubernatorial hopefuls to eliminate the state income tax is getting a chilly reception from the woman they hope to replace.

At a forum of candidates today, both Secretary of State Ken Bennett and state Sen. Al Melvin said they want to scrap the tax on both individuals and corporations, which currently provides about $4.4 billion of the current $9.2 billion state budget.

Bennett has said he would make up the difference with sales taxes, albeit at a lower rate than the current 5.6 percent but by imposing the levy on services and other transactions not taxes.
