One big tax proposal seen among many of slight importance

-A A +A
By Harold Morgon

The final day for introducing bills into the 2013 legislative session came Valentine’s Day.
My attention has gone to examining the diversity of the state, and I haven’t paid detailed attention to the session. Huge controversies have stayed hidden in the woodwork. Not that nothing is happening. Legislators have introduced 1,218 bills. Some are duplicates, with one introduced in the House and one in the Senate. A few are “dummy bills” with language about serving the public good that can become real bills later if needed.
Still, much stuff is kicking around the Roundhouse. For those concerned about taxes, the New Mexico Tax Research Institute (www.nmtri.org) provides an invaluable tracking resource through its free online newsletter, “Tax Matters.”
The urge to tinker with the tax code appears a common element in obscure proposals. Certainly all these proposals will make New Mexico better. After all, the tax code is a fragmented mess, so what’s one more totally reasonable exception. Let’s do something for group A or industry B.
