A Response For The Taxpayers Association
The Utah Taxpayer Association email has also made its way to realsaltlake.org where it's being discussed. One commenter named RSL Punk spurned the Association's evidence and offered some of his own: "How's this for some anecdotal evidence: I spent $400 last year on two season tickets, $100 on a jersey, and about $6-10 per game on food. I was not, nor would I ever have been, in the habit of hopping on a jet to California to watch the footy. What would that money have paid for otherwise? My book and CD addiction. But since that's fueled mostly through Amazon (and the Utah "use tax" is voluntary), that $40 or so in sales tax I spent was "new" tax money."
