Income tax is an increasing concern not only for the Greatest Generation, but for Baby Boomers as more and more reach retirement age. Recent shocking deficits created by overspending by local and federal governments will burden our children and grandchildren for decades to come.
Income tax is the primary source of revenue for federal, state and local governments. With increasing demand for public services, the pressure to raise taxes is tremendous.
We all want the best for our families. We want excellent public services and benefits for all citizens -- good schools, hospitals, public safety, infrastructure and assistance for the unfortunate. New Hampshire can deliver these services by growing the private sector, increasing the proportion of revenues from business rather than taxing individuals' incomes.
New technologies have created whole new industries. The Internet made new markets for computer companies to create new types of hardware and software. Online retail sales are free of sales tax -- a natural fit for New Hampshire. Advances in medicine, materials science and other technological segments made the industries for medical instrumentation and devices boom.
