Re “Those ‘little taxes’ all add up For those of” (Letters, Oct. 30): In the letter in Sunday’s paper, the writer did not compare one percentage to the other. If you calculate 7.63 times $50K, the tax would be $3,815 vs. $4,065 if the tax is 8.12 percent. So the difference, by subtracting one from the other, is $250. So if a person can pay $50K for a car, to pay an extra $250 for road improvement would be a worthwhile expense. Vote yes on Measure L.
