Texas Comptroller Candidate Harvey Hilderbran Discusses Campaign and Taxpayers Bill Of Rights [AUDIO]
On the Thursday edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Texas State Comptroller candidate Harvey Hilderbran spoke with Chad Hasty about his campaign for comptroller and what he plans to accomplish if elected into office.
One of Hilderbran's biggest platforms is his Performance Pledge, a detailed plan of what he hopes to accomplish if elected to the office of Comptroller, including a taxpayers "Bill of Rights." One of the latest additions to the pledge is the creation of taxpayers advocate office. Hilderbran explained that he firmly believes that taxpayers have every right to receive quick and honest answers for any questions they may have.
"One of the issues that we've raised in our taxpayers Bill of Rights is that taxpayers are entitled to guidance. In other words, if they got a question about how they're situated in the tax rules, under tax laws or tax cuts and purposes, they can ask questions. And if they disagree, they can raise those issues. And that's what historically had happened and those issues got worked out...but in more recent years, that hadn't been the case, and you couldn't get your questions answered and you couldn't get guidance."
Hilderbran also shared some ideas about getting money back tot Texas taxpayers, including working to streamline the state government, and added that a simple tax holiday was not a specific enough solution. He also shared his thoughts on the current comptroller Susan Combs, saying that he appreciated her efforts to keep the office transparent, but was not impressed with her mixed voting record.
