Shoppers around North Carolina will have the chance to participate in the state's tax free weekend Aug. 2-4, but it will be for the last time. As part of a tax reform measure that was recently signed into law, the event that has been in place for more than ten years will come to an end.
Sen. Jim Davis, who represents Macon County, supported most parts of Gov. Pat McCrory's budget.
“This is one of the ways that we are trying to make the tax code in North Carolina simpler,” he said. “We're just closing another loop-hole.”
