Connecticut lawmakers begin debate on plan to eliminate car tax
State lawmakers gathered Monday for a public hearing on the proposal to eliminate car tax.
The plan was first revealed during the governor's State of the State address and it has been a hot topic ever since. The committee that writes the tax laws heard from Democrats, who are skeptical about the proposal. The plan calls for cutting the car tax and eliminating the $350 income tax credit, and using casino revenues to provide funding to municipalities. Dems say Governor Rell's (R-CT) plan just shifts the tax burden.
Senator Bill Nickerson (R-Greenwich) says he hopes the hearing will make it very clear that the car tax is unfairly applied from one town to the next, which creates problems for tax collectors.
