Repeal Sales Tax on Food/Drugs or An Alternative Dear Friend: I d like your advice, the legislature is considering tax relief alternatives Both the Senate and the House have passed different versions on the repeal of the sales tax on certain items the Senate — food, drugs and prosthetic devices, the House — food, drugs, prosthetic devices and fuel and the proposal is being considered in Conference Committee There is some talk in the State House of scrapping tho sales tax repeal on food, drugs, etc , 'n general ret plan) and substituting it with several specific relief plans lf this is done I have proposed the following alternative and would like your reaction to it 1) Passage of my plan to improve property tax relief for Senior Citizens and the totally disabled; by a. raising income level from the present S6,000-58,OOO b. increasing the percentage of reimbursement*as follows $1,000 remains at 95%    $4,000-5.000    increase    from 35-55 under $2,000 increase from 80-85%    $5,000-6 OOO    increase    from 25-45% $2,000-3,000 increase from 65-75%    $6,000-7,000    increase    from 0-35 , $3,000-4,000 increase from 60-65%    $7,000-8,000    increase    from 0-25'% The net additional cost of this program is $3 2 million d< of tars 2) Income tax relief for low income by raising the Ie /cl before the Iowa income tax is due from $4-5,000/year (last session we raised that level from $3-4,000, The cost of this is $3 million dollars per year. 3) Increase the standard deduction on the Iowa income tax from $250 to $750 or from 5-10% (in lieu of itemized deduction). The cost of this is $8 2 million. 4) Increase the exemptions on inheritance taxes for the spouse from $40,000 to $80,000 and for children from $15,000 to $30,000 and create a presumption that joint tenancy property represents the joint contribution of the husband and wife (even though the wife might only be employed in the home;. This recognizes the wife s contribution and will also help preserve family farms which sometimes have to be sold because of taxes on death of a farmer. The cost of this is $4 8 million. The total annual cost of this package is $19.2 million compared to an annual loss of revenue to the state of $31 million if the sales tax is repealed on food and drugs only and approximately $40 million if the sales tax on fuel is also repealed. Please let me know at once what your views are so I can share them with Governor Ray, Lieutenant Governor Neu, Speaker Varley, the Conference Committee and other members of the General Assembly. Sincerely.
