Governor proposes beauty taxes | WIVB.com
Really!? I know we're in an economic crunch, but should the cities be throwing more tax on the People because of it? If the city is in dire need of money, it can damned well cut spending, they don't need to try to emulate NYC (which according to the article already has this sort of tax). It's like California. It alone had one of the higher global GDPs and it's out of money. How is it out of money? Reckless spending. The people pay enough to the government, we're feeling a huge pinch brought in part by lack regulation and irresponsible lending practices. Government's fault, and who has to pay? We do.Hair stylists say their clients are definitely feeling the economic pinch. They fear that it will only get worse if Governor David Paterson gets his way.
John Paul Lauricella (Capello Salons) said, "People are used to paying a price with no tax, and if you throw in a tax on top of that, it would deter them from coming as often as they do."
The governor's proposed budget includes taxes aimed at a slew of services including sales taxes on hair cuts.
Lauricella said, "Another tax, our New York State residents are overtaxed as it is."
Government is getting well to big for its britches and I think we're going to see that fact well demonstrated during this time of economic hardships.
