We are excited to announce that Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform and a frequent guest on Fox News, will be coming to North Carolina May 16-17. He will join AFP in encouraging state lawmakers to tax less, tax fair and tax simple.
AFP recently launched a massive grassroots effort that will urge lawmakers to be bold in reforming the state’s depression-era tax code. Tax relief and tax reform would spur economic development and get North Carolina “back in the game” in jobs and economic growth.
Won’t you be part of this historic effort to bring tax relief and tax reform to North Carolina? Will you come to one of our events next week, meet Grover Norquist and learn more about tax reform?

Exciting Update: On Tuesday, the state Senate rolled out its tax reform plan. At first glance this tax relief and reform package appears to meet AFP’s goals of taxing less, taxing fair and taxing simple. We are encouraged by the scope of the income tax cuts, reduction in spending, reform of the franchise tax, cut in the sales tax rate, and a consumption-based taxing system that treats everyone fairly and makes sure everyone pays something but no more than a fair share. We will begin studying the legislation and will be sending you a survey in the next day or so—we would really like to have your opinion on the Senate bill and on tax reform in general. Stay tuned!
