Financial Resources Study Commission -Councilmember Eisenberg
reported on the Commission's meeting of June 25. At that meeting,
guest speakers: Jewel Scott, City Manager, and Roger Southward, Finance Director, of the City of Deleware, reported on their
experience with the City's new tax ordinance. The issue of taxing unearned income was not so much to increase revenues, but to be
included as part of their tax reform to address the equity issue of taxing. In so doing, they made major revisions to their exist- ing tax code thereby creating a very complicated tax system. Mr. Eisenberg said Deleware officials feel at this point that their new tax ordinance has been a net revenue loser because of the tremendous amount of paper work and, in some cases people who pre- viously paid tax were now in fact paying none because of deductions.
