    Spaceport America Gets Its Tax

    Backers of Spaceport America won a big one yesterday as Sierra County, N.M., came out in favor of a quarter-cent gross receipts sales tax to help fund the project.

    Neighboring Dona Ana County agreed to the tax by a slim 1.6 percent margin last spring but Sierra County tallied two-thirds of all voters in favor.

    The vote was critical as a tax district to fund construction of Spaceport America, which is seen as a center for future space tourism and commercial ventures. The effort needs the approval of at least two counties. The upshot: New Mexico tax authorities can start to collect a 25 cent charge on each $100 purchase and Spaceport America is one step closer to reality.

    Did you know that by the year 2020, Spaceport America will employ more than 5,000 people with an excess of $1 billion in total revenues? How fun would it be to work for them?
