Scottsdale Businesswoman Sues To Scuttle Prop 208

A Scottsdale businesswoman is taking on the newly voter-approved proposition that adds an income tax surcharge to wealthy wage earners to fund public education.

Ann Siner, CEO and founder of My Sister’s Closet, headquartered in Scottsdale, and retired Maricopa County Superior Court Judge John Buttrick were to announce plans to file a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Proposition 208.

Although their joint press conference was to be held after the Progress’ print deadline Friday, an announcement about it called Proposition 208 “the largest tax increase in state history that disproportionally impacts job creators such as Siner.”
