AFP-NC Applauds Rejection of Tax Increase on North Carolinians

Nov 6, 2019 by AFP

CHARLOTTE, NC—Americans for Prosperity-North Carolina (AFP-NC)  applauded the efforts of its activists and coalition partners in defeating a hurtful tax increase on Mecklenburg County consumers. The proposed measure that appeared on yesterday’s ballot would have added a quarter-cent to the current sales tax rate, purportedly to fund Mecklenburg County arts, culture, and other projects.

AFP-NC State Director Chris McCoy issued the following statement:

“We applaud the continued efforts of our activists and coalition partners in making sure that North Carolinians are able to keep more of their hard-earned paychecks. Yesterday’s vote should serve as a wake-up call to the Mecklenburg County Commissioners that they should better prioritize spending and resources rather than raising taxes on our families.”
