Idahoans being able to buy food for their families is critical. No Idaho family member should ever go without a meal because of government tax. We are seeing an increase in the price of food, and we took the steps this legislative session to provide tax relief from sales tax on that food. I supported HB588 which provides a tax credit, up to $100 to offset sales tax on qualified food. This is very important, and I feel that we took the correct and necessary steps to give Idahoans a tax break at the grocery store and to keep money in their pocket.
