Tax Credit

Last term, a tax credit was passed to divert public school students to low-cost (almost all religious) schools, reduce state grants to school districts, and lower our basic revenues.  The law is unconstitutional in our state, but the NH Supreme Court punted by deciding NH taxpayers cannot challenge it unless they individually bear a higher burden of the costs than others.  Fortunately, because the current Senate will not allow its repeal, it is so unwieldy that it is so far little used.  Reducing state grants to school districts will automatically raise our property taxes. Back
