Regarding the Jan. 21 letter “Sales tax reductions” from state Rep. Paul Stam: While Stam is correct that the tax rate has been reduced, he is remiss in implying that this equates to a nonregressive result.
The list of those things now taxed has been broadened, and there have been many new state fees imposed.
I now “contribute” more to the state coffers than before all of the changes he touted. Thanks for nothing.
