How much total money is generated by this fee? To which governmental unit(s) does it go? How is it allocated? Was it necessary to hire new personnel to administer the taxes? If so, what salaries are paid out for this service? If no additional personnel were required, did the persons performing these administrative duties receive an increase in salary? Is there money generated by this fee going into the general fund(s)? If so, how much money?
I believe this is a tax on tax, which is not a choice. Taxpayers certainly did not have a chance to vote on this, and I believe that the above questions need to be answered.
