Don Johnson is an official topic of discussion in the Vermont Legislature.
The "Miami Vice" star was upset when the state sent him a $50,000 bill for personal income tax after he filmed the movie "Sweetheart's Dance" in Vermont in 1987.In fact, Don Lyons, the head of the Vermont Travel Division, says Johnson was so upset he threatened to spread the word in Hollywood that Vermont is an unfriendly place to work unless the law is changed.
As a result, the state Legislature, at the request of Gov. Madeleine Kunin, is considering bill that would eliminate state income taxes for moviemakers who are in the state for less than 120 days. Johnson was unavailable for comment.
