Amendment 73 – Douglas County Likely Most Affected

Education Funding at the expense of the few.

Curious which counties will likely be hit the hardest if amendment 73 passes? #1 Douglas, #2 Elbert, #3 Broomfield, #4 Eagle and #5 Pitkin. Here’s a chart from showing Household Income greater than $100k by County as a percent of their total population.

** NOTE: This was formerly known as Amendment 93, so if you see information about 93, know that it is referring to amendment 73

Vote NO on Amendment 73 (formerly amendment 93) – Not IF, but WHEN !!

Education Funding at the expense of the few.

Are you a family earning less than $150k per year, and thrilled at the thought of not paying for the personal income tax increases proposed under amendment 73?

Think again.

The additional Colorado tax brackets added under amendment 73 do not appear to be annually adjusted for inflation.

What does this mean??

As you and your partner get those raises and your professional career advances, it’s only a matter of time before you too will pay these taxes.

This Initiative, if passed, becomes Colorado’s version of the former federal alternative minimum tax (or AMT) trap.

Therefore, in the beginning while perhaps only 2% of Coloradan’s will pay the income tax increase, as Colorado’s economy booms and wages increase, the number affected by this tax WILL increase over time.

Vote NO on Amendment 73, An Annual Tax Increase For Life!

Education Funding at the expense of the few.

As a result, BAD for Colorado taxpayers and businesses.

Amendment 73 (formerly amendment 93) APPEARS to check all the boxes in what we look for as Coloradans when it comes to making sure our education system is funded properly. But this is the most dangerous tax increase bill in the country, and it’s being disguised as pro-education.

If Amendment 73 passes, it will tax SOME Coloradans an additional $1.6B annually and economists predict we will be in the hook for an additional $260M a year with no end in sight for tax raises. The extreme language permits additional tax revenue to be taken from SOME Coloradans. For us, that means an additional 2.1% of tax revenue taken, every year, for life. In 5 years, when this Amendment goes for it’s first review period, we’ll have already been subject to forfeiting 10.5% of tax revenue from the general fund.

How is this acceptable? Why are Coloradans being put on the hook for the mismanagement of the additional marijuana revenue that was supposed to fix this budgetary gap for education? Why are Coloradans being asked to bail out the unions, Colorado Department of Education and pension funds that are taking money away from our children and out of the classroom?

Amendment 73 is radical, it’s a sheep in disguise and it’s the most dangerous and permanent annual increase in taxes for Colorado to absorb.

I urge you to vote NO on Amendment 73 in November.
