Maine House Democrats Seek Income 'Tax Fairness'

AUGUSTA -- Democratic leadership in the Maine House of Representatives say they've produced a bill to create what they're calling "tax fairness" in the state.

Sponsored by Rep. Seth Berry (D - Bowdoinham), the bill would add one cent to the tax rate for those making over $250,000 a year.

 

Berry says the changed rate would generate about $200 million in revenue in the upcoming fiscal year -- and fill half of the state budget gap.

 

Republicans are poised to fight the measure.

 

They've previously opposed raising state taxes on any Mainers in the current economic climate.
