a recent study, which I commented on in another post, noted NC is one of the bottom 5 states for industry. Corporate and personal tax rates contributed to that. "Low" property tax rates partially offset those negatives; the study noted had it not been for the low property tax rates, NC would have fallen all the way to the bottom -- even below New York and California.
Everyone who voted to approve that sales tax increase, with the promise there would be no property tax increase, should look in the mirror and see a Big Tootsie Roll Sucker.
I own property; I have to pay the taxes. I don't live in the county; I don't have to frequent county stores, restaurants and retail outlets. I'll drive to Raleigh if my wife wants to go to Ruth's Chris.
