The Vermont House has voted to delay a scheduled tax decrease on manufacturers. They’ve also voted to apply the state sales tax for the first time to dietary supplements.
The House Ways and Means Committee included those in new revenue sources to offset what would have been an increase in school property taxes.
The tax changes came in a package of amendments that won approval yesterday on a vote of 92-to-49.
Vermont state taxes usually are closely tied to what a taxpayer owes the federal government. But yesterday’s vote means manufacturers won’t see the state follow suit with a recently enacted federal tax cut for two years.
