ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Gov. Bill Walker will propose a head tax on Alaskans to partially fill the multi-billion dollar gap between state revenue and spending.
The governor, an independent, at special legislative session next month will propose a 1.5 percent flat tax on wages or self-employment income.
Retirement income such as Social Security would not be taxed. Interest income, dividends and capital gains also would not be taxed
