Q&A 2017

Helen’s Q-and-A with City Hall

1. City “general fund” revenue growth since City TABOR passed (1991-2015)— 150%. That does NOT include many “special funds” accounts. For example:

 

It does NOT include tax increases for TOPS, PSST, and sneaky ones, like their end to the 3%-of-revenue collection fee retail businesses kept for their effort as unpaid sales tax agents for the City. They now must work “for free!” That meant a 3% increase in sales tax revenue; we never voted to allow that boost in net tax revenue.
