I seem to recall that fishing tackle manufacturers have to pay a special tax for recreational fishing enhancement or something like that... Does this special tax still exist? If so, is it a state or federal requirement?
Since I'm single (no tax credit), and making less than 6 figures (no tax credit), and have no children (no tax credit), and am not poor (no tax credit), and have no stocks (no tax credit), should I be surprised that tackle manufacturers have to pay a tax, that's passed directly to me?
Scott- Do you (as the one making the direct payment of the tax) or we fisherpeople (as the indirect payers of the tax) have any say in where it goes? It seems like the perfect item to make sure is being spent wisely -- both to benefit the market for tackle manufacturers, as well as to make sure it makes sense for the consumer tackle buyers. Thanks, Mack
they say it goes into the fisheries but it most likely pay for someones car to drive from washington to salem we have no say everytime they close a season i feel like i shoulden't have to pay and being a small co. i can't pass it on to the consumer i eat it and it dose not taste good
