It is really sad the the Republicans did away with the tax-free weekend. The NC tax reform helps no one but the wealthy. It means less tax for big business, which is what most politicians of both parties are all about. It probably will even out for the middle class, but for those on fixed incomes and lower wage scale workers, it will hurt them. South Carolina will probably benefit next year, as many from Brunswick County will cross the state line to spend their money, like they do now to buy gas. Amazon.com and other online retailers will also benefit, as they never charge sales tax and many times shipping is free. They will get my business.
