Last month saw Governors from three states (LA, KS, NE) publicly state their desire to eliminate income taxes. Last year Oklahoma introduced legislation to eliminate its income tax (but couldn't get it passed into law).

Now we hear news that the governor of our southern neighbor is also contemplating income tax elimination:

Gov. Nikki Haley praised state House Republicans on Tuesday for proposing to further cut income taxes.

Measures introduced in the House differ from her recommendation, but Haley said she supports anything that reduces income taxes. Haley wants to eventually eliminate corporate and personal income taxes, as a business recruitment tool. (emphasis added)

North Carolina has a golden opportunity to get ahead of the curve in terms of eliminating the most anti-growth state taxes. Learn more at: www.noincometaxnc.org
