Taxed to Death?

November 07, 2013 J,

Feel like you are being taxed to death in Connecticut?!  You’re not that far off!

A recent report from the Manhattan Institute reveals that Connecticut applies a 12% tax on estates of $2 million and above. While this level of taxation makes it difficult to die here, Governor Malloy and the legislature are not making it much easier to live here.  Governor Malloy’s tenure is proof that over-the-top taxes and out-of-control spending are not the solution to our state’s fiscal problems but rather his policies are the problem.

For example, Connecticut drivers already pay a gasoline tax of 49.6 cents on every gallon, the third highest in the nation ranking only behind New York and California.

If you believe Connecticut gas taxes are too high, contact Governor Malloy and ask him to stop driving residents and businesses away from our state.  You can call his office at (860) 566-4840 or email him here.

Speaking of taxes, if you are concerned about the many, many taxes ObamaCare may bring, Congressman Jim Himes is beginning a senior health care tour this week.  You may want to check the schedule below in case you would like to ask the Congressman a question about ObamaCare.
