They Want To Tax What?

Services you use everyday could cost more if some state lawmakers get their way.

A proposed house bill would charge a service tax for things like warranties, installations and repairs, local and interstate courier services like Fed-Ex, downloading ringtones and songs, haircuts, movie tickets, and the state sales tax would increase by a quarter percent.

Local business owners and organizations don't like the idea saying people will just opt not to buy certain goods or services.

No final decisions have been made. Lawmakers are expected to vote on a final bill by the end of the month.
