Citizens for Responsible Taxation (CRT), a watchdog group that formed to oppose the county tax increase proposal, has released the results of a scientific poll conducted last week.
The Searcy-based group says the poll shows widespread disapproval for the tax and the structure of the proposal itself.
The survey had over 700 highly likely voter respondents. When asked if they thought this was an appropriate time to raise taxes with a troubled economy:
- 63% of respondents said "no."
- 25% said yes, but only for essential services such as fire & police.
- Only 12% responded, "Yes, the economy should not affect tax policy."
