    I love in New Mexico. We tax all gross receipts. That means tax on piano lessons, real estate transactions, labor for remodeling, etc. The impact is that New Mexico is considered hostile to business and very few companies s are willing to open a presence in our state. Utah should be warned that by increasing the tax base there will be many unintended consequences. Tell your governor to get his hands out of your wallet!

    Utah GOP lawmakers have never met a tax increase that they didn't love. You have to watch what they do vs. what they say.
