HARTFORD – State Rep. Gale Mastrofrancesco (R-80) along with the legislature’s Conservative Caucus this week warned residents to prepare for yet another round of Democrat tax increases – this time on goods and services that range from supermarket sandwiches and coffee to digital downloads – contained in the Democrats’ budget that take effect on October 1st.
Instead of streamlining state government, or trying to reduce state spending to balance yet another massive budget deficit, legislative Democrats and Governor Lamont chose once again to soak Connecticut residents by raising taxes on thousands of everyday goods and services. As a result, taxes are slated to go up today on everything from a slice of grocery store pizza to digital entertainment services like Netflix, Hulu and Spotify, among many others. It will even cost more to buy a new car in Connecticut, since the vehicle trade-in fee just increased to $100.
