Businesses Told Just Pass It On! But Can They?

BATON ROUGE — Proponents of imposing a sales tax on business and professional services say it’s really not a tax on business, because business owners will just “pass it on” to the ultimate consumer of their services.
But Baton Rouge architect Joshua Hoffpauir, who said he is still gathering information on the Jindal tax proposal, said he doesn’t know how he could pass along a 5.88 percent tax to his clients.
“Fees are already at rock bottom, and there is tremendous pressure on fees.  I’d have to somehow absorb it.  It would come out of my bottom line and out of my family’s income.”
