Entries in Income Taxes (17)
Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on the health care plan proposed by Senate Republicans:
"Republicans and Democrats share the goal of expanding access to health care for New Hampshire's low income families. However, Republicans understand that the best way to reach this objective is to offer access to high quality private insurance instead of pushing them into a broken, financially struggling entitlement program.
"Senator Republicans have developed a sensible plan that helps low-income people get private insurance and prevents a fiscal crisis that will impose an income tax on Granite State families. They have worked across the aisle to develop a solution that is right for New Hampshire. It is time for Governor Hassan to put aside her rigid, partisan ideology and embrace this responsible plan that will help working families access the quality health care that they need."

Concord - The New Hampshire Republican State Committee today called on John Beardmore, Governor Maggie Hassan's nominee to be the next commissioner of the Department of Revenue Administration, to address questions about the Hassan Administration's new hospitality income tax. Beardmore will appear before the Executive Council today for a public hearing on his nomination. The Union Leader (5/13/13) reported that the Hassan Administration is trying to reinterpret existing tax rules to force New Hampshire restaurants and food establishments to pay a new income tax on tips collected by food servers.
"The Hassan Administration's new hospitality income tax is a backdoor attempt to squeeze more money out of New Hampshire's business community to cover the reckless spending increases in the governor's irresponsible budget," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "This onerous new tax places an even greater burden on our hospitality industry that will kill jobs, reduce wages for restaurant servers, and crush small businesses."
Governor Hassan has refused to comment on this new tax or ask the DRA to stop trying to collect it.
"Until last year, the Department of Revenue Administration did not include tips in the calculation of Business Enterprise Tax payments. But since Governor Hassan took office, the state has tried to bully and intimidate restaurants with harassing audit letters into paying more taxes," said Horn. "Mr. Beardmore owes the New Hampshire hospitality industry an answer about whether or not he will allow the DRA to continue to target restaurants with this new and unfair tax."
CONCORD – Today House Republican Leader Gene G. Chandler (R-Bartlett) offered the following comments relative to the public hearing on House Bill 330, a bill that would allow counties to adopt a county income tax to be administered by the Department of Revenue Administration (DRA).
House Republican Leader Gene Chandler (R-Bartlett)
“This is a great example of the legislative process in New Hampshire. You can file any bill, no matter how frivolous and it will get a fair and open public hearing. We appreciate Rep. Burridge’s candor in his legislation, but I just can’t imagine this bill has any chance of survival. New Hampshire has a proud tradition of being income tax free. We intend on keeping the entire state, including Rep. Burridge’s county, income tax free.”
