Senate roll call on CACR 13, the income tax ban
CONCORD – New Hampshire voters will be able to decide whether they want to prohibit an income tax at the November general election after both the House and Senate today approved CACR 13.
The House approved CACR 13 by the necessary three-fifths majority to
place the question on the November ballot. The House vote was 256-110.
In the Senate, the vote was 19-4.
The amendment would prohibit “an assessment, rate, or tax on income earned by a natural person other than taxes in effect on January 1, 2012, and adjustments to the rate of such taxes.”
Supporters say the amendment would enshrine the “New Hampshire Advantage” in the constitution, while opponents say the measure is short-sighted and will tie the hands of future legislators.
To become law, two-thirds of voters must approve it at November's general election.
