Ever since the very first meeting of the Tax Reform Task Force in Brigham City, Utah on June 25th, Utah Legislative Watch has been raising the alarm about misinformation and group-think being used to push a false message that Utah’s tax system is broken.

We aren’t the only one with this opinion. On July 8, 2019, David Stringfellow, the Chief Economist of the State Auditor’s Office, in his role as a private citizen, publicly warned the Tax Reform Task Force that the Stronger Futures Utah information was faulty.  Stringfellow says the information being pushed by the Tax Reoform Task Force is “wrong” and “a bad forecast.” Link to Salt Lake Tribune article is provided below.
