As everyone celebrates tax day today, we are releasing results of our April DecisionMaker poll that shows that 2/3rds of NC voters think the amount of taxes they pay are too high for the services they receive from state government.
The Civitas Institute’s April DecisionMaker reveals that two-thirds

services they receive. 29% believed it was about right, while only 2%
thought taxes were too low.
“North Carolina residents overwhelming agree that they are not

known as a low-tax state, but this is increasingly farther and farther
from the truth,” DeLuca added.
