Sununu Promises Opposition to Business Tax Cut Rollback

Gov. Chris Sununu is calling out Democrats in his state over tax policies in the months before an expected budget showdown. 

Sununu headlined a rally in the state capital March 30. He told a crowd of hundreds that the state legislature, which is controlled by the Democrats, is threatening the state’s longstanding opposition to income tax. 

The Concord Monitor reports Sununu is opposing moves to roll back cuts to the business profits tax. He also characterized the planned creation of paid family leave as a form of income tax. 

Granite State Taxpayers put on the rally. Democratic Senate Majority Leader Dan Feltes said Sununu is mischaracterizing the nature of the state’s tax trouble. Feltes said property taxes are going up in New Hampshire while taxes on corporations are going down.
