SB 407 by Eltife would permit cities and counties to levy an additional 1/4% sales tax each to offset property taxes. This would bring the new maximum tax rate to 8 3/4%, the 13th highest state-local combined rate in the nation. Call or e-mail your representative RIGHT NOW and tell them that Texas relies too heavily on regressive sales taxes and to VOTE NO ON SB 407.
