Texas Realtors - Vote for Prop 6 on November 6

The Texas Association of REALTORS® spent the last several years fighting an insidious fee called mixed-use vehicle taxation that targets REALTORS® and many other Texans. In the 80th session, legislators passed a bill that could end this issue once and for all; however, because the new law will provide constitutional protection from this unfair tax, there is one final hurdle: statewide ratification by voters.

The stakes are high. If Proposition 6 passes, Texas REALTORS® won't have to pay $600 or more in additional taxes per year. If Prop 6 fails, it will be a green light for all central appraisal districts to target REALTORS® and other independent contractors who drive a car for both personal and business use. Spread the word. Tell friends, family, neighbors, and business associates to go to the polls November 6 and vote for Proposition 6.

Thanks Danny.  They've been fighting this for years, and I don't see it ever going through to where we get taxes.  There are too many "independant contractors" throughout many industries these days, and they would have to target everyone, including that Mary Kay consultant heading to a makeup party.

By the way, you should post this in the Texas Groups... there are two of them.  It'll get more attention.
