HB115 Keep Your Eye on This

HB 115 is a tax bill calling to tap the permanent fund and establish a state sales tax. The problem is that they have added language to a section ( 43.22.050) of the bill that would make skippers liable to collect state income tax on all crew members if a state tax is implemented. This would be a nightmare! Why they are singling out crew members and not other groups who hire contractors is a mystery. During the UFA's Spring meeting in February, we had the opportunity to address our delegation about how much this is not a workable scenario, and offered other methods of collecting said tax should the bill pass. Keep your eye on this one....
