    12 hrs ago | Townhall

    Of what significance is the Internal Revenue Service's recent change to the Obama administration's instruction that the IRS reject tax returns of people who don't indicate whether they have insurance?

Under the Obama administration, the IRS had scheduled a rule to take effect rejecting "silent" tax returns for the year 2016; i.e., returns whose filers failed to check a box on their return indicating whether they complied with the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate last year.

    GOP legislative leaders are taking another look at the income tax piece of their tax reform package but are still working to put together a plan before the session ends March 9. That plan will still include reductions to both the income and sales tax rates, and restore the full state sales tax, 4.7 percent, on food purchases, said Senate President Wayne Niederhauser, R-Sandy. The changes are intended to be revenue neutral for the first year because the rates will be lowered, possibly by around one-half of a percent each, but then bring in more tax dollars as the base is broadened.
