This bill also changes the basis of taxation from net worth or modified net income to a business’s total revenue minus either the cost of goods sold or the total cost of employee compensation. The bill also states that the tax rate can only be increased with the approval of a majority of voters in a statewide referendum and prohibits companies from deducting the costs of hiring undocumented immigrants.
