This morning the House announced their comprehensive tax reform plan. The plan would reduce personal and corporate income tax rates while expanding the sales tax to cover more services. Under the plan, there would only be a single income tax bracket, and the sales tax would be reduced from 6.75 to 6.65 percent. Automobile repairs, warranty contracts, and several other services would be subject to sales tax under the plan.


WRAL: Details of NC House tax plan unveiled
RALEIGH, N.C. — House Republicans offered their own North Carolina tax overhaul plan Thursday that would reduce personal and corporate income tax rates and expand the sales tax to cover more services. The proposal’s scope is much narrower than what Senate counterparts offered as GOP legislators try to fulfill a commitment to carry out tax reform this year.
