Call to Action – Stop the ABQ GRT increase

Albuquerque City Residents: The Albuquerque City Council will vote tonight regarding a three-eighths of one percent (.375%) Gross Receipts Tax increase. We are asking you to show up tonight to speak against this tax increase or, in the alternative, write to the City Councilors and voice your objection.

The facts are simple. This tax increase is: 1) Detrimental to business growth and job creation; and 2) It is especially difficult for low-income and senior citizens on a fixed income. If Albuquerque wants to grow and get out of this financial crisis it is now in, the answer is to broaden the tax base by encouraging business growth and relocation, not driving it away and trying to take more from those who live and work here.
