Utah Taxpayers Association releases 2022 Legislative Scorecard and Friend of the Taxpayer award winners

The Utah Taxpayers Association has released its 2022 Legislative Scorecard and announces its ‘Friend of the Taxpayer’ award winners. 

This year, the Association’s annual scorecard ranked Utah’s 104 legislators on 15 crucial taxpayer related bills from the 2022 legislative session. The bills that were rated covered key taxpayer issues such as cutting taxes, preventing tax increases, promoting equity in Utah’s tax code and ensuring economic success in the state for years to come.

Legislators voting with the Association’s position 90% of the time earn the distinction of “Friend of the Taxpayer.” 26 House members and 21 senators earned the honor for this year, a significant increase from the prior year.

“Legislators passed a very broad income tax rate, which we have called on the Legislature for throughout the prior year. We appreciate the Legislature’s consideration of all Utah taxpayers while also seeing record revenues.” said Rusty Cannon, President of the Utah Taxpayers Association. “Our Friend of the Taxpayer award is coveted by legislators, and we congratulate this year’s winners for defending sound tax policy. We view the number of winners this year as evidence that legislators understand the importance of formulating sound tax policy for Utah taxpayers”.
