State reports refute Eyman on taxes

I’ll blog on this in more detail later in the day, but I just wanted to quickly point readers towards the flood of articles on a DOR report that state and local tax burden is at its lowest point since 1981.

It all started with an article yesterday in the Spokane Spokesman-Review by their excellent Capitol reporter, Rich Roesler. That was followed up by an AP story, printed in the Seattle Times and elsewhere, and spurring an even more thorough article in the Seattle P-I.

Finally, Joe Turner in the Tacoma News Tribune adds to the story by reporting on an OFM report that analyzes the impact of I-892: “Eyman oversells tax relief, state says“.

More later.
