Ok….. I am not sure how big this is going to be but it could be huge… I am not sure of all the legal terms but Senator Munoz recently requested a “Joint Memorial” I guess it is a formal request for the Tax and Rev Dept to start counting the beans…
Below is the first paragraph of the “Memorial” if you click on it you can read the entire text.
A JOINT MEMORIAL REQUESTING THE TAXATION AND REVENUE DEPARTMENT TO CONDUCT AUDITS OF INCOME TAX RETURNS OF OUTFITTERS, GUIDES AND LANDOWNERS WHO RECEIVE PAYMENTS FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF GAME AND FISH TO HELP DETERMINE THE COSTS AND BENEFITS OF HUNTING TO THE
STATE AND ITS TAXPAYERS.
From my understanding it will make all those LO, Outfitters and Guides report all income that is earned from stuff like Land Owner Tags, Guided Trips, Tips, etc…. This could really shake the foundations of our LO System because in out State Constitution we have an Anti-Donation Clause. There has been some discussion that this clause could be used to get rid of LO tags all together… and that would be a good thing..
