Iowans paid almost two billion dollars in income taxes two years ago. This new Iowa Department of Revenue and Finance report isn’t for the most recent tax year — it’s for 1999. The agency says Iowans paid one-point-nine billion dollars in income taxes that year. There were about one-point-eight million taxpayers — and they collectively had about 69-billion dollars in income. Officials say economic growth between 1998 and ’99 can be traced through the numbers, as state taxes grew about seven-point-seven percent in that period.
