Today the Governor proposed a fiscal plan. As it stands now, the plan includes a 1% tax increase or surcharge (it is unclear which) on commercial fish landings in Alaska. Additionally, the proposal includes an increase in marine fuel taxes and a statewide income tax = 3 taxes to the fishing industry. Capping the PFD is also proposed.
FY17 proposed Budget documents are posted at the Office of Management and Budget site at https://www.omb.alaska.gov/html/budget-report/fy2017-budget/proposed.html
