Statement from Alexandra Sirota on Final Tax Plan

The final deal North Carolinians must live with is a giant step backwards for the state. Rather than fixing problems with state taxes it makes them worse.
It cuts taxes for the wealthiest, and takes away the highly effective state Earned Income Tax Credit from low-income working families.
We’ll all pay the price for this sweet deal for wealthy taxpayers and profitable corporations. Our state will be the poorer for it – less attractive to businesses, less hospitable to families.
