The State Tax Panel is holding a public hearing Wednesday to come up with recommendations for making taxes on the state and local levels more fair, equitable and stable. Danbury Senator Mike McLachlan says this is residents opportunity to speak out about taxes so that recommendations can be sent to the legislature.
McLachlan says he's already hearing from constituents with ideas for the General Assembly to take up when the new session starts in February. He says many of the ideas are about repealing increases over the last four years.
This is the first major tax study in more than two decades.
McLachlan says the state's sales tax is likely to come up. He expects people will also talk about the estate tax, personal income tax, property tax and business taxes. The hearing at the state capital is from 4pm to 8pm.
