New Sales Tax Legislation Divides North Carolinian Lawmakers
Disputes have arisen over the consequences of a proposed sales tax bill which would invest revenue from sales taxes into rural regions. Although Charlotte officials have estimated a cost of $30 million for the city and $62 million for the Mecklenburg County government and towns. Meanwhile, the non-partisan group Fiscal Research Division has placed the cost closer to $2.6 million for the city, $68 million for the County government, and a net gain of $4 million for the towns. Current practices privilege large cities with sales tax revenue, while the future legislation would use population as determining factor.
