Candidates share similar views on taxes

(Continued)

While the two candidates do agree that taxes should be lowered, each candidate offered different wrinkles in terms of which taxes they’d target. Mirra said that he would like the income tax to be reduced to 5 percent, while Fogel said the state should consider adopting a sales tax for online vendors so that local brick and mortar stores wouldn’t be at a competitive disadvantage.

“I think we need to give serious consideration to that,” Fogel said. “People need to pay sales taxes in stores, but not online.”
