Tax Modernization and Revenue Restructure Town Hall Meetings Begin Tuesday, June 25
Legislative Task Force invites the public to attend statewide listening tour June 25 – July 30
SALT LAKE CITY – A series of revenue restructure town hall meetings start Tuesday, June 25 in Brigham City. The town hall meetings are part of a statewide listening tour being conducted by the Tax Restructuring and Equalization Task Force. In the 2019 General Legislative Session, the Utah Legislature created the task force to look for ways to address the state’s outdated tax structure, get public input and suggest solutions.
“Because we’ve always had the foresight to build for tomorrow, our state has always been at the forefront of economic stability,” said Sen. Lyle Hillyard, co-chair of the Tax Restructuring and Equalization Task Force.
“Let’s work together to take the long view and act now to preserve for future generations a quality of life defined by economic prosperity, incomparable recreation, first-rate education, advanced transportation and clean air,” says Rep. Francis Gibson, co-chair of the Tax Restructuring and Equalization Task Force.
The town hall meetings will begin with an open house for attendees to learn about the issue, the task force process and have questions answered. Following the open house, the task force will provide a presentation on the challenges the state budget is facing and the public will have the opportunity to provide input. Additionally, an informational website will be available with an online form for the public to comment and provide feedback throughout the process. Listed below are town hall dates, times and locations:
