New Paint & Lumber Tax, It Ain’t Right!
Wednesday, February 13, 2013 – A south bay contractor called KUSI's Michael Turko when he realized he was getting fleeced by the state of California. Turko says that should come as a surprise to no one! That's just one reason Turko calls it Sacrademento. To add insult to injury, consider that paint manufacturers helped get the paint fee passed because it gets them off the hook for disposing of old paint. The lumber industry backed the lumber fee because a hidden provision gets them off the hook for causing forest fires.
