The Crittenden County Fiscal Court approved the controversial insurance premium tax during its special meeting this morning. (See here for more details).
The approved version levies a 2-percent tax on all insurance premiums, excluding health, life and worker's compensation. The amended version of the tax ordinance passed by a 5-1 margin with Magistrate Greg West (the magistrate representing Dycusburg) casting the only dissenting vote.
I wonder if the fiscal court researched many other viable solutions? I hope this is a wake-up call for several Crittenden Countians to pay closer attention to where their dollars are going. Truly, and not just in Crittenden County, we are a nation of taxation without representation.
