Why Prices Went Up!

Connecticut Carwash operator Todd Whitehouse had this sign made to express his displeasure of the sales tax that was imposed on operators a few years ago. It also explains to his customers why he was forced to raise his prices!

If you want to purchase this sign for your wash, the price is $69.

Sales Tax Update: 2017

Email Your Legislator TODAY!!!

The CCA Board is asking all CT Carwash Operators to reach out to their Legislators TODAY by adapting the the letter below and making their voices heard in hopes of winning the repeal of the tax imposed on coin-op carwashes two years ago!

There is no budget/tax package currently and the Governor is ruling by Executive Order.

We need to act now!

If you are granted a meeting:
*Be direct/blunt, yet respectful
*Ask to be treated equally/fairly
*Let them know that it’s impossible to collect this tax and
*It’s unfair to single out one industry!

Don’t Delay. Act Today!

Bob Rossini, CCA President
