Re May 8 letter by Jack Correia, “Instead of gas tax, how about trailer and moped tax?”
Frequently there are letters to the editors complaining that trailers are not required to be licensed. All of these letters recognize the value from taxes the state loses because there is no license required. These trailers are used to make money. They are necessary for tradesmen to make repairs on our homes and maintain neighborhood appearance but add wear and tear to our streets. We all end up paying for the resurfacing required as a result of the heavy loads carried by many of these trailers.
Why can’t the state tax these trailers to put more money in the state coffers? A range could be set that would not be a hardship on anyone and at the same time bring in needed funds to maintain the roads.
