According to an article in the Clipper, (see here) the Woods Cross City Council approved a resolution to put the RAP tax on the ballot in November. Councilmember Rick Earnshaw said “I tell them we’re already shopping in Bountiful and paying the tax, so we may as well be reaping the benefits ourselves.” I don't agree with Rick, because, a large percentage of my purchases over the last 12 months have not been in Bountiful.
I purchased a vehicle last December from Murdock Chevrolet, which I didn't pay the RAP tax on. My family also does a considerable amount of shopping at CostCo which is located in West Bountiful, which doesn't have the RAP tax.
Just because Bountiful is our neighbor, doesn't mean we need to have the same taxes. We don't need to keep up with the Joneses. I believe that the Woods Cross residents should vote down the RAP tax, again!
