Utah Legislative Watch Director, Brett W. Hastings, was honored to participate in a tax reform Round Table sponsored by Keep My Voice, a conservative organization founded to advocate for Utah’s historic caucus system. The panel included State Senator Curtis Bramble (R-Utah/Wasatch County), State Representative Robert Spendlove (R-Salt Lake County), and State Auditor John Dougal. Other panel members included Rusty Cannon, Vice President of the Utah Taxpayers Association, and tax attorney Spencer Evans. The parties appeared to come to a consensus that, although Utah’s tax system can be improved, Utah is not facing a tax crisis, and implementing a broad sales tax on services is risky, and the least desirable of all the potential ideas proposed to reform Utah’s tax system. Watch the full roundtable here.
