Dan Feltes on Corporations
Close loopholes; NH 6th lowest in taxing business
Feltes replied that he wants to continue closing business tax loopholes. He pointed, as an example, to Netflix, which up until this budget year paid $0 in taxes despite selling their service to
Granite Staters, he said. As New Hampshire is the sixth lowest state in taxing businesses, but is the second-highest in property taxes, he wants to help relieve the burden from homeowners.

Raise business taxes; lower property taxes
[On corporate taxes]: "If we do a more fair system and we devote more money to our communities, I think we can relieve some of the stress on property taxpayers," Feltes said. "We've got the sixth lowest overall business taxes in the country, and the
second highest property taxes. We need to be focused like a laser beam on middle-income Granite Staters and helping our communities and helping deal with these crises, not singularly focused on pushing taxes to big corporations down."

Fight laws written behind closed doors for big corporations
As I took on fights for working families [in the state Senate], I came to realize that all too often, it was the laws themselves that were broken. Too many of them were written behind closed doors for big corporations and the
well-connected elite, not working people.
So, I ran for state Senate, and, we won.
We fought for campaign finance reform - so that everyday people, not wealthy donors, matter most.
