Keeping in step with his tax and spend ways, Jared Polis is once again raising the cost of taxes (he mistakenly calls fees) on a vital sector of Coloradans. Today, we’re talking about fees for Licensed Practitioners. That includes dentists, doctors, nurses, optometrists, podiatrists, and veterinarians. The fee to practice will be increased from $12 to $13.75 in FY 21-22 and then to $25 in FY 22-23. The fee increase is thanks to Polis signing HB21-1012 into law. Those who provide medical care for us should not be charged more in fees to do so. And let’s be real, that cost is only going to be passed onto the taxpayer.
