Support Remote Sales Tax Collection (Marketplace Fairness Act) - North Carolina and its counties are losing hundreds of millions of dollars annually in sales tax revenues through untaxed remote sales. State estimates project an N.C. loss of nearly $122 million annually, with losses growing faster than the overall retail tax base. Collecting remote sales taxes is not a new tax or a tax increase; these revenues are actually already due and payable by law.
Oppose Unfunded Mandates to Counties - Reductions in federal spending and deficits should not be accomplished by shifting costs to counties, imposing unfunded mandates, or pre-empting county programs and taxing authority. We oppose any legislative or regulatory initiatives that undermine local government decision making authority and contribute to reductions to the economic prosperity and workforce of North Carolina’s counties.
