Car Excise Tax Phase Out Enters Year Two

With House passage of the 2019 state budget on Friday, the phase out of the automobile excise tax is moving toward year two.  House Speaker Nicholas Mattiello calls it an unfair, regressive and oppressive tax.  The budget contains nearly 55-million-dollars to replace lost revenue for cities and towns, because the tax is imposed locally, and not by the state.  The Senate takes up the budget this week.
