Iowa Lawmakers Seek Tax Web Site
January 22, 2009, 10:59 AM
An anti-tax group and five Republican legislators are calling for a Web site that would help Iowans monitor state and local government spending.
Backers of the proposal say nine states have created such Web sites, and they claim it could cost as little as $40,000.
The Muscatine-based group Iowans for Tax Relief is supporting the plan, introduced Wednesday by the five lawmakers.
It would require that a single, searchable Web site be created by January 2011. The site would allow taxpayers to calculate their tax liabilities for each taxing district.
Republican Rep. Linda Upmeyer of Garner says supporters of the plan haven't consulted with Democrats in crafting the measure.
Democrats hold majorities in both legislative chambers.
