Officials with the Idaho Attorney General’s Office are taking responsibility for a typographical error in the inflation calculations mistakenly attributed to the Quality Education Act that will be on Idaho voters’ ballots in November.
The inflation calculation error, which involved switching a numerator with a denominator, appeared to indicate that when inflation went up, the dollar threshold for the relevant tax bracket would go down.
The Idaho Capitol Sun reports, the error was not used in the official paperwork or ballot language submitted by the Reclaim Idaho organizers that pushed for the education funding initiative on the Nov. 8 general election ballot.
That means the error won’t be used in calculating inflation for the Quality Education Act if voters approve it.
The initiative will go before voters Nov. 8th.
