Iowa anti-tax group, lawmakers seek tax website


DES MOINES (KWWL) - An anti-tax group and five Republican legislators are calling for a website that would help Iowans monitor state and local government spending.

Backers of the proposal say nine states have created such Web sites, and they claim it could cost as little as $40,000.

The Muscatine-based group Iowans for Tax Relief is supporting the plan, introduced Wednesday by the five lawmakers.

It would require that a single, searchable website be created by January 2011. The site would allow taxpayers to calculate their tax liabilities for each taxing district.
