  • New Mexico may tax tickets to space on Virgin Galactic

    I hope they do, heavily. If you can afford the ticket, you can afford the tax.

    New Mexico may tax tickets to space on Virgin Galactic

    Pity the poor space flight passenger: Flying up up and away from Earth could get even more expensive as New Mexico lawmakers consider taxing the tickets on Virgin Galactic.

    A bipartisan bill introduced in the state Legislature seeks to close a loophole that excluded spaceflight passenger tickets from gross receipts taxes. The move aims to harvest revenue from ticket sales as Virgin Galactic prepares for regular commercial service from Spaceport America in southern New Mexico.

    Well the launch pads will just get moved to Texas then. There is not doubt these space flights will end up making life better for everyone, that is how it works with tech advances. There is enough history to analyze to show this is true.

      You'll never be able to afford a ticket. This silliness is strictly a plaything for the ubër-wealthy.

        I don't care, tech progress helps the country and its people in the long run. Its great when money is being spend by private industry to develop tech for peaceful means.

          The Spaceport was built by New Mexico. Hefty taxes on tickets for its use is absolutely necessary.

            Uplink would rather subsidize corporate America’s entire labor force with his tax dollars than ask billionaires to pay their fair share.

                    How about this? Levy a huge tax on the billionaires who want to go up there and distribute the money to their employees. 😎
