The Utah Taxpayers Association is once again distorting facts ("Utahns' tax burden 8th-highest in U.S.," June 10). The truth is also that Utah is not in the top 10 percent in tax burden. Not even in the top 15 percent.

Who belongs to the Utah Taxpayers Association anyway? It doesn't represent me or any taxpayers I know. Oh, yes, it represents big business.
