Doug Burgum on Tax Reform

 

 


Exempted military retirement benefits from state income tax

In North Dakota, we've got 50,000 veterans who call North Dakota home, and that goes all the way back to some surviving greatest generation, World War II folks, for my dad's generation. Kudos to all of you, because with their leadership, we exempted military retirement benefits from state income tax. And we cut through red tape so the trailing military spouses with occupational licenses from other states can work here.

Private investment in infrastructure reduces property taxes

Communities have a choice about how and where they spend their dollars. And as we look at growing populations it's imperative that we fully utilize the existing infrastructure we've already built to support that growth rather than extending new infrastructure that raises everyone's property taxes. We have an opportunity through our design choices to drive taxes down, because taxes are driven by the footprint of the city.

Shrink government and stop property tax hikes

Doug will eliminate the runaway spending of career politicians that stuck North Dakota with a $1.1 billion deficit.
