Whither Kansas, & Will NC Follow?


“Hope you’ll visit us in Kansas. We need your sales tax revenue.”

So said Annie McKay, Executive Director of of the Kansas Center for Economic Growth at yesterday’s Crucial Conversation held by NC Policy Watch. The room was packed with North Carolinians concerned for our state’s financial health in the wake of drastic tax changes enacted by NCGA leadership.

Taxes, the Price of Civilization

Those pesky, liberal universities are at it again, as a doctoral thesis reveals that Americans don’t mind paying taxes after all!

In national surveys, over 95 percent of Americans agree with the statement, “It is every American’s civic duty to pay their fair share of taxes,” and more than half see taxpaying as “very patriotic.” One man from Ohio called it a responsibility to “the Founding Fathers.” A former Marine said taxpaying is “the cost of being an American,” while a man from California said tax avoidance is the equivalent of “shorting the country.”

Tax Reform?

Conversation #1 from Facebook regarding the 'tax reform' given to us by our NCGA.
More to come!!

~sarcasm warning~ I can't thank our state legislature enough for the wonderful tax cuts that they've been bragging about for the past year (face palm)...Our gross income was $4k less this year....last year our state refund was $541, this year we owe the state $18.....I'm still trying to find that tax cut that they raved about....oh wait!!! I found it.....Art Pope got my tax cut.

Response from Friends:
-We owe $34 to NC. They're not getting it till April 10.
