Imagine not having to pay any property or income taxes in Nebraska, but there's a catch you'd pay a new consumption tax on just about everything you buy, such as food and medical services, things that are not taxed right now.
That is the idea behind a new constitutional resolution LR 300 CA introduced by state Sen. Steve Erdman and 9 other lawmakers on Thursday.
"This is fixing the whole issue, everything. This is eliminating all those taxes and replacing it with a fair tax", Erdman said.
"We will be the most sought-after state to live in. Retired people will want to live here. Young people will want to stay here", Erdman said.
The resolution would allow voters to decide whether to replace all those taxes with a consumption tax.
