Dan Forest on Tax Reform

 

 


Best business incentive is tax relief

Since most businesses are small businesses that never get to see a government incentive, the best incentive is tax relief for all companies that pay taxes, small and large. Tax relief allows them to make decisions that can lead to growth in the economy in a fair and equitable way and helps all communities, not just the big cities where most corporate incentive money lands.

Eliminate state tax on out-of-state military pay

Eliminate N.C. income tax on military pay while stationed out of state. Under current law, military members pay North Carolina state taxes on income they earn while stationed around the country, no matter where they end up living. Exempting our military members from this tax is an effective way to keep servicemembers calling North Carolina home.

Lower taxes, smaller government, & personal responsibility

Forest, a self-described conservative Republican, focused his campaign on decreasing the state's unemployment and advocated his job creation plan that involved recruiting companies to relocate to North Carolina by creating a business climate of what he described as "low taxes, good roads and safe communities." He ran on what he called a "three-legged stool platform."
  1. smaller government
