First of all, we must always keep in mind that there is no such thing as a free lunch.

Taxes are necessary. It is, however, the responsibility of the Government to ensure that taxes do not over-burden the taxed, whether individual or business.

I believe that there are far too many taxes in Utah. It costs money to collect the vast array of different taxes. It is a burnden to business where the costs of ensuring that proper compliance and payments have been made often exceed the amount of tax paid.

Our Government needs to reduce and simplify the tax system to something comprehensible, economical to administer and fair to all.
