Re "Plug State Tax Loopholes," editorial, April 12:
I'm glad you're calling attention to the many tax loopholes that riddle our state tax code. It's hard to get a sleepy issue like taxes talked about, but the point is, we can raise revenue without new, broad-based tax increases by throwing out tax breaks that don't work. Increasingly, the corporate tax burden is shrinking and the middle class is footing the bill. I've been beating the drum on this issue since before I joined the Board of Equalization.
