Roll Back the Massachusetts Sales Tax from 6.25% to 3%
The Roll Back Taxes ballot initiative (“Question 3″) campaign was the boldest tax cut measure in America in 2010. Despite a $4.5 million campaign by the Teachers Union to defeat it, and despite Massachusetts being among the biggest of Big Government states, nearly one million voters (43% of the vote) said Yes to rolling back the state sales tax from 6.25% to 3%.

If Roll Back Taxes had passed, it would have:
- created 33,000 NEW Private Sector JOBS!
- given back an average of $688 – every year – to each taxpayer. Average of over $900 / family.
- forced state politicians to cut government waste.
- kept shoppers in Massachusetts– instead of driving them to New Hampshire’s 0% sales tax.
- attracted shoppers from Rhode Island, Connecticut, Vermont and New York – another boost for Massachusetts Retailers.
Four Massachusetts legislators were elected in 2010 (three newly elected, one incumbent) who pledged their support of rolling back the sales tax to 3%: Representatives Dan Webster (6th Plymouth), Ryan Fattman (18th Worcester), Steven Levy (4th Middlesex) and Geoff Diehl (7th Plymouth).Email to a Friend
