New Hampshire’s House reversed course and voted down a proposed income tax, all but assuring that the state would preserve its status as one of two states with neither a general sales tax nor an income tax. The 3.5% income tax was proposed as a way of meeting the state Supreme Court’s Thursday deadline for a fairer system to pay for schools. The state now relies on widely varying local property taxes, which the court ruled unconstitutional in 1997.
