N.C. Dept. Of Revenue doesn't have proper tax forms for increased sales tax
It seems to me that in the state's enthusiasm to increase revenue via increased sales tax, they didn't give the Department of Revenue time to get the right forms out.
The Charlotte Observer alerted me to the story.
Retail businesses began collecting a higher sales tax Sept. 1 from shoppers under a tax increase that was passed during the summer as part of the state budget.
But the rush to pass the budget left the N.C. Department of Revenue, which collects the tax, without time to produce new tax forms to reflect the higher tax rate. As a result, businesses in the state were stuck with obsolete tax forms.
Is ANYbody surprised? I'm not really. Disappointed? Yes.
