One Idaho lawmaker wants to make property taxes a thing of the past.  Rep. Jason Monks (R-Nampa) is the assistant majority leader in the State House and wants to completely eliminate property taxes but raise the state's sales tax by over 5%.

Monks wants to do away with the entire thing so he introduced House Bill 359 that would do just that.  His personal bill would repeal property taxes, and in return, the state sales tax would nearly double from the current 6% to 11%.

"I think property tax is kind of an evil tax, Monks said.   Dates back to the dark ages or the middle ages when the lords of the manor had to pay taxes to the Kings and the Queens otherwise they didn't get to keep their land and frankly that's what we still have that system today".
