With less than two weeks until the filing deadline, proponents of saving Arizonans from an unexpected $155 million income tax hike sought by Gov. Doug Ducey this year have given up.
But they’re still hoping to give back to taxpayers next year what they say is an unearned “windfall” for the state.
Rep. Ben Toma, R-Peoria, who chairs the House Ways and Means Committee, said Tuesday there simply isn’t time to adjust Arizona tax laws to deal with the fact that changes in federal laws will mean higher bills for some state residents.
“I’ve been telling all my friends to file,” he said.
