Senator Dan Feltes Comments on Passage on Special Tax Break

Concord, NH – Following the passage of HB 550 along a party line 14-10 vote, Sen. Dan Feltes, member of the Senate Ways and Means Committee released the following statement:

“Carving out tax breaks for a single business at the last minute with no transparency is not the way to re-write tax law and can lead to harmful, unintended consequences for the people of New Hampshire,” said Sen. Dan Feltes. “This tax break, which was only brought up at the last minute by former Governor Craig Benson for a business that he serves on the board for, has not had a full vetting and is being rushed through the legislative process. We shouldn’t be opening loopholes for Governor Benson, we should be closing loopholes that disproportionately benefit the wealth and big corporations at the expense of the middle class, small businesses, and property taxpayers.”
