Gross Receipts Tax: Your Wallet, Your Jobs, and State Revenue

The Interim Revenue Committee will meet May 11th and 12th in Saratoga. On their agenda is yet another proposal to shrink revenues, a Gross Receipts Tax [GRT]. It would also shrink the Wyoming economy and – to kill three birds with one stone – shrink your wallet! They may not notice the thing about shrinking your wallet by an estimated $800 to $1000 dollars a year [about $3,600 for a family of four in direct and indirect costs], but you’d think they would notice the part about shrinking revenues, being the Revenue Committee and all.

Cheyenne City Council Makes Wise Decision on Real Estate Sale

The Cheyenne City Council wisely chose to reject a deal that would have denied them the opportunity to look at multiple offers for the old police station property at 2020 Capitol Avenue.  Had they instead chosen to move forward with the administrations proposed no-bid deal, it would have done a disservice to residents, taxpayers, and even the potential purchaser of the building.
