LBB says HB 3 raises taxes on most Texans

From The Quorum Report



$100,600+ Incomes only group to see net tax decrease, poorest see biggest increase


(to understand why, see the regressive taxes included in the bill)

A new analysis [PDF] of the Committee Substitute to House Bill 3 by the Legislative Budget Board shows that low income Texans will see a bigger percentage increase in their taxes than those on higher incomes.

The LBB says that for fiscal year 2007 families earning between $13,415 and $22,833, the percentage increase in taxes will be 5.16 percent. For families earning between $31,735 and $41,463, the percentage increase in taxes will be 4.95 percent.

For families earning between $64,325 and $79,271, the percentage increase in taxes will be 2.66 percent. For families earning between $79,271 and $100,593, the percentage increase in taxes will be 1.65 percent.

Families earning between $100,593 and $140,853 would see a net tax decrease of 0.43 percent. Families earning over $140,853 would see a net tax decrease of 2.88 percent.

The figures are included in a Tax/Fee Equity Note released today by the LBB. The reports final tax incidence shows that for the lowest income level (0 to low $10,000 income range), there is a $111.9 million increase, or 5.6 percent, in fiscal year in 2007.

For the middle income level (low $40,000s to low $50,000 income range), there is a $175.4 million increase, or 4.3 percent, in fiscal year in 2007. For the highest income level (low $140,000 and above), there is a $400.5 million decrease, or 2.9 percent, in fiscal year in 2007.

In other words, the property tax reduction envisioned in HB2 will cost most Texans more taxes than it saves them.
