RALEIGH – A new internet commercial from the Civitas Institute regarding tax reform has garnered thousands of views in less than two weeks. The video touts the benefits to hard-working North Carolinians from the elimination of the state income tax.
The 30-second spot prompts citizens to imagine how they could improve their lives by keeping more of what they earn. The median North Carolina household pays nearly $2,200 a year in state income taxes, a significant amount of money that could help start a business, pay off debt or save for retirement.
As tax reform takes center stage at the state legislature, the Civitas Institute will continue to be a leading voice for pro-growth measures that will create job opportunities for those most in need and help North Carolina families achieve greater financial security.
