Americans for Prosperity Saddened by 25% Increase in Home Heating Oil Tax
MANCHESTER – Americans for Prosperity – New Hampshire (AFP-NH) today expressed disappointment over the vote by the New Hampshire Senate to support a bill (HB 185) to increase the home heating oil tax by 25%.
“Unfortunately, the Senate voted today to increase taxes on working families which will result in higher heating costs for the many homeowners who heat their homes with heating oil,” said Greg Moore, AFP-NH State Director. “With the high cost of heating oil, the last thing we need are higher taxes that raise prices. We should have looked at more steps to improve this program before raising the tax by 25%.”
