Bryan Council Approves Tax Amendment

Bryan City Coun­cil mem­bers approved amend­ing the city’s tax code at Monday’s reg­u­lar meet­ing. The changes, accord­ing to the Bryan Times, brings the code in line with the stan­dards set forth by the state under the con­tentious House Bill 5 which was signed into law by Gov­er­nor John Kasich late last year. The leg­is­la­tion was enacted in order to stan­dard­ize munic­i­pal tax col­lec­tion across the state. Bryan offi­cials how­ever, con­tend that the changes are con­fus­ing at best and hurt­ful for tax­pay­ers at worst. Coun­cil mem­bers urge Bryan res­i­dents to study the new laws and to direct any issues to state legislators.
