BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Sen. Jeff Siddoway says the only tax cut proposal he'll likely consider this year is eliminating Idaho's surcharge on business equipment.
Siddoway, a Republican from Terreton, chairs the Senate Local Government and Taxation Committee.
He told The Associated Press Monday that other proposals - including one now in the House to trim Idaho's income tax rates - are attractive but require too much money as lawmaker grapple with expensive education proposals including boosting teacher pay.
Siddoway says he aims to expand last year's $20 million business-equipment tax cut, phasing it out over the next decade.
He'll introduce the measure by next week.
With four weeks left in the 2014 session, legislative leaders said big questions remaining are how much cash to put into education, rainy-day savings accounts and tax relief.
