Taxachusetts is at it Again

Posted: August 20, 2009 in Uncategorized

It’s quite apparent to most of us living in this awful state that it’s getting harder and harder to live here.  That’s why the population in this crappy state is declining, which, by the way, is going to cost this state some seats in the House when they redo the numbers.  On August 1st the sales tax in this state skyrocketed from 5% to 6.25%.  That in itself was a bad move as it’s driven citizens of MA to surrounding states and also online to do a lot of their shopping.  Then the morons in power announced that there would be no tax holiday this year.  Big mistake as surrounding states are still holding theirs.  In fact, Connecticut has a tax free week, not just two days like we’ve had in the past. And now, as if the idiots haven’t done enough to take business away from MA retailers, they’ve given yet another “fuck you” to those poor retailers.

Since there is no tax holiday this year many retailers were advertising that they would pay the sales tax on certain days. Sounds good, right? The consumers still get to buy things this year without paying tax, and the tax still gets paid. In fact, it’s a much better deal for the state than past tax holidays since the state would actually see the tax revenue. So, like most bureaucrats do when something good comes along, they squashed this. In this god forsaken state it’s apparently illegal for retailers to pay sales tax for consumers. Seriously, that’s way beyond fucked up! Who the hell cares who pays the damn sales tax as long as it’s paid. It’s past time that these idiots in power dig their heads out of their collective asses. Pretty soon there won’t be anyone left in this rotten state for them to screw over. Will the last person leaving Taxachusetts please turn off the light?
