This whole sales tax issue is down right dumb. Arizona has one the highest sales tax rates in the nation. In Mesa with state,county,and city taxes we pay in excess of 9%. Times are tough for the honest tax payer who must put up with brain-dead government leaders who refuse to cut back expenditures. Their justification for high sales tax is that we have a low property tax rate...give me a break. Any homeowner will tell you that their property taxes are not low. And even with property tax valuations in decline, we STILL pay the same or higher property tax as before the housing market crash. If i were a car dealer i would be screaming. Figure it out: a $30,000 purchased automobile @$30,000 cost X 9%tax = $ 2,700 net tax pay out. And for a whooping $2,700, i can afford to fly myself, kids, and grand kids to a sales tax free state say like Oregon...enjoy a great vacation...then drive my new car or van back to Mesa with a happy smile....ALL on the money i would have spent on my Mesa automobile purchase. People wake up! Join your tax payers association and help fight these high sales taxes. Vote people in office say like hones house wives who really know what it means to budget.
