State legislators’ inaction increased our 2018 taxes

Our 2018 federal tax return resulted in an almost 8 percent decline in our effective tax rate.

But because our fine state legislators defaulted on their responsibilities to recalibrate state taxes to coincide with the major federal changes, our effective state tax rate increased by almost 10 percent, costing us three times what we usually get in our state refund.

Thanks a lot, Bryce Reeves and Nick Freitas!
