MS: Tax Exemptions For Businesses

ThHarrison County supervisors on Monday granted tax exemptions to two companies but denied an exemption for a third company.

The board voted 3-2 to grant five-year tax exemptions to United States Marine Inc. and Trinity Yachts LLC.

Supervisors Connie Rockco and Marlin Ladner voted against the motions and said Harrison County residents are the ones who end up paying in the long run.

“There is no such thing as a tax exemption,” Ladner said. “They are tax transfers because somebody has to pay them.

I agree that someone will have to pick up the short fall created by these exemptions.  Unfortunately, it is always the taxpayer that has to foot the bill, seldom is it ever the corporations.
