TAXMAN: In Dallas, Eric Aasen reports the Irving City Council plans to call an election in May to “let voters decide whether to give the council the option of levying up to a 10[%] ticket tax and a $3-per-vehicle tax on” Cowboys fans starting this fall. The city also wants to “impose up to a $5,000 fee per game on each team member, which would probably be a first in Texas.” Tax proceeds would be used to develop the Texas Stadium land once the Cowboys move to Arlington in ’09 (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 1/26).
