CURMUDGEON'S CORNER: Tax breaks for special interests not the answer (OPINION)

October 24, 2012

In a letter to the editor to this paper on October 4th Ellen Waxman who owns an art gallery in Wickford, argues that the legislature should “declare a state-wide sales tax exemption on art”. This, she asserts, would “spark Rhode Island’s economy”. Just how this would happen is unstated.
In this effort, state Senator James Sheehan “has agreed to sponsor legislation along this idea if he is reelected”. Great. Just what we need is more legislation that would favor a special interest, in this case owners of art galleries.
