Many AZ elected officials are poised to adopt a budget that captures (steals) from AZ taxpayers the hard-fought tax relief provided by Trump. You may check a recent press release by LD11 legislators stating the problem and their suggested solution.
At AZRRT we are not accountants and do not pretend to be, so the following explanation is a very simplified explanation of the issue as we understand it.
Federal Government Giveth: The federal tax code is cumbersome and convoluted, so the Trump tax reduction came in the form of cumbersome and convoluted measures. They entailed adjustments to the exemptions, deductions, tax brackets, and tax rates. But one does not have to be an accountant to understand the final result, which was that tax payers in every bracket kept more of the money they made.
State Government Taketh Away: Many legislators, and apparently the governor, are of the opinion that the Trump tax cuts belong to the AZ state government and not the AZ tax payers. Therefore, they are using the need to conform the state code to the federal code in a manner that increases taxes, thereby wiping out the gains from the Trump tax cuts. We have to let them know that such behavior is not acceptable. Tax payers, not the state government, should be the beneficiaries of the Trump tax cuts.
Just like a drug addict and his dope the political class never want a Tax Dollar returned to it's rightful owners. They will spend every dollar we can earn and much more if we allow them to and it will never be enough.
Can you fix the legislature's addiction to using other people's money? NO! Unless they attend classes to help them with this addiction or we bounce them out of office, we are doomed.
Remember that as Vladimir Lenin stated "The goal of socialism is Communism", thus we have given birth to the seed of a "democratic" socialism through state extortion of our property.
"Thou shalt not covet they neighbors goods" ... and the antitheses of that is socialism ... yet it fits with what Joseph Stalin said "When we hang the capitalists they will sell us the rope we use". Our godless politics is all we need to know which germinates this evil within.
