WHEREAS, Congress in an effort to balance the federal <br />budget Is considering the elimination of state and local <br />Income tax deductions; and <br />WHEREAS, certain states, such as Florida, have no <br />state or local Income tax and therefore have not been able <br />to benefit from any such income tax deduction; and <br />WHEREAS, states which are able to deduct state and <br />local income taxes from their federal income tax obligation <br />are, therefore, getting an undue advantage over states such <br />as Florida; and <br />WHEREAS, treating all states on an equal basis would <br />be a more fair method of attacking the federal budget <br />deficit, <br />NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY <br />COMMISSIONERS OF INDIAN RIVER COUNTY, FLORIDA, that: <br />1. The County goes on record in support of the <br />Congressional bipartisan effort to reduce the federal budget <br />deficit through elimination of state and local income tax <br />deductions from federal tax obligation. <br />2. The Clerk to the Board is authorized to send a <br />copy of this resolution to the National Association of <br />Counties, the State Association of Counties, the <br />Congressional delegation from Indian River County, Florida, <br />and to the Committee on the Budget and the Committee on Ways <br />and Means of the U. S. Congress. <br />Il <br />
