Arizona lawmakers this year decided to add a voluntary contribution fund called “I Didn’t Pay Enough” to Arizona’s income tax form this year. The results? 386 taxpayers gave the state an extra $13,204 to Arizona’s general fund.
Arizona residents donations averaged $34 with a range of 1 -10 dollars the most prevalent, with one tax return giving $1,000.
Here in Arizona, the idea of a “pay more” fund gained poplularity as the state began cutting programs and slashing costs. You may be saying $13,000? Heck, that covers a little more than half of one of our lawmaker’s annual salary of $24,000!
