Tax season is getting underway, and a new report lays out the percentages taxes take out of family incomes in Wyoming. The “Who Pays?” study shows that taxes a percentage of income are the lower for the reich and highest for the poorest.

With that report in hand, the executive director of the Equality State Policy Center, Dan Neal, presented a proposal to a state legislative committee on Wednesday. It supports the planned gas tax hike, while recognizing that lower-income workers need a break. The idea is to provide pro-rated refunds, Neal said.
