LAS CRUCES (KRQE) - A New Mexico town is suing a state agency over an increase in taxes, but it’s not the state that's asking residents to pay more, it’s the city.
The Las Cruces Sun-News reports Mayor Ken Miyahishima says he plans to sue the state Taxation and Revenue Department.
In September, the City Council approved an increase in the city's sales tax to begin January 1.
City officials say it's needed to collect $4.4 million to offset anticipated losses in state stipends.
But the state agency found the tax increase does not conform to requirements of state law, so Las Cruces is taking them to court.
