A local tax expert says the proposed middle income tax break pending in the state legislature might not be as enticing as it sounds. Dan Bontrager is a CPA with Bontrager Tax in Kalona. He says cutting income taxes in one area, usually means higher taxes for another group of people, or increased sales or property taxes. Bontrager says he’s always wary about pending legislation, because it can change so many times before it becomes law. The middle income tax break would provide tax relief for Iowans who make less than 125-thousand dollars per year, but would end the practice of allowing federal taxes to be claimed as a deduction at the state level.
