Since then, as any observant Alaskan can see, these tax reductions have as an alternative devastated all companies for Alaskans and brought about a drastic discount of the everlasting fund dividend.
After six years and misplaced income of greater than $6 billion from Alaska to the oil corporations, Alaskans now are lastly voting to get a good tax construction on our depleting oil sources. In response, the oil corporations are threatening dire penalties. Be aware, they actually aren’t making any of their previous guarantees, however are threatening even much less for Alaskans.
As an example, they are saying you could vote no to guard your Everlasting Fund dividend on their large Connex-box indicators. How precisely will that work? Beneath the current tax construction, your PFD is on monitor to dwindle to zero in two years.
