Panel urges tax reform

The Institute for Emerging Issues says its time to revamp state taxes.

A committee created by the Raleigh-based think tank said Tuesday that the General Assembly should pass tax reform this year to help keep North Carolina business-friendly.

The committee said sales taxes and corporate and personal income taxes should be reduced, while exemptions and loopholes are eliminated.

Former Charlotte Mayor Richard Vinroot, who ran for governor as a Republican, co-chaired the committee. He said local governments should have more options to raise their own funds.

Senate Democrats are considering whether to lower tax rates while taxing some services. (AP)

Re: Panel urges tax reform

Can't the legislature advocate for a flat tax for all and get rid of the silly tax code?
