RALEIGH, NC – As tax reform in the Tar Heel state inches closer to a reality, Americans for Prosperity – North Carolina applauded the State House Appropriations Committee for passing House Bill 998 – Tax Simplification and Reduction Act – out of committee and on to the floor of the State House for debate.
“The Tax Simplification and Reduction Act would provide $1.6 billion in tax relief to North Carolinians over five years and dramatically improve North Carolina’s tax competitiveness in our region of the country,” said Dallas Woodhouse, State Director of AFP-North Carolina.
Early estimates indicate that passage of House Bill 998 would cause North Carolina to leapfrog more than a dozen states in tax competitiveness rankings.
Woodhouse continued, “Representative Lewis and the House Appropriations Committee should be commended on their good work to reform our tax code.”
Two months ago, on April 16, Americans for Prosperity announced a $500,000 campaign to urge the passage of “bold tax reform” in North Carolina. Since then, the group has held grassroots town hall-style meetings across the state, and also released a television ad touting conservative reforms at the General Assembly
