I am a strong supporter of the elimination of hidden taxes

  • I believe that property taxes assessed on an arbitrary determination of value are morally unjust and inequitably harms the working poor who see their tax expense increase with no increase in income or voluntary consumption.
  • I believe that margin taxes are economically misguided, inequitable and unfairly place the burden on certain manufacturing sectors while virtually exempting the services sector that makes up an increasing percentage of the Texas economy.
  • I agree with the Texas Policy Foundation the Tax Foundation and others who have called for an elimination of property taxes and gross margin taxes
  • I support the elimination of all property and margin taxes.
