SALT LAKE CITY — A new bill taxing a wide array of services to broaden a key part of the state’s revenue base will lower the state sales tax rate to 3.1 percent as well as reduce income taxes.
Details of a GOP leadership-backed tax reform bill sponsored by Rep. Tim Quinn, R-Heber City, were released Tuesday, after House Republicans heard a presentation during a closed-door caucus.
“We talked about what was in the bill, as far as who is being taxed, and the very few who are not,” Quinn told reporters. “We wanted to make this as broad as possible so we didn’t pick winners or losers by this policy.”
